your tiles are amazing! I can't wait to see what they look like when they are installed. Thank you for taking the time and effort to do the step by step. It is a great read, and VERY dramatic! Dropping clay! Chin-ups! and cool tiles!

Mahalo for all the support and interest everyone!

Sorry for the lack of updates - it has been a VERY long week of demolition and construction. Ms. VanTiki has been keeping a photographic record (when not swinging a hammer) and I'll be sure to update this thread soon with photos and the like. We are very sore and tired and tend to fall asleep right after dinner Mahalo for your patience. gotta go load the kiln!

Aloha all!

Sorry (once again) for the lack of updates - good news is Ms. VanTiki has been updating a photo page showing the trials and tribulations of Project Bathroom. Man - it has been a tough 11 days! Soon we will begin tiling - and I still have to press and glaze a bunch of TikiTiles. The fun never ends Enjoy the photos - WARNING: we have (had) the ickiest bathroom in Hawaii - the house was a foreclosure when we bought it and there was some wild stuff done before the prior owners vacated. Slowly getting it back in shape.

Mahalo for looking,

Whew - it's been a while! The bathroom project is never ending. We spent last weekend on the big island celebrating our 10 year anniversary - and we greatly enjoyed taking a shower at the volcano hostel where we stayed whenever we wanted to! Hope to have our shower up and running by next monday (fingers crossed). A month of driving to your parents house every night to take a shower can get a tad tedious - good thing my parents are very understanding folks

The project is now being headed up by Ms. VanTiki as I have a slew of commercials to animate - and today she started putting up the tiki tiles. They look so neat on a wall! Cant wait to see them grouted.





Mahalo for looking!

Looking great Van! I just thought of something, how are you going to keep the grout out of all the grooves in the tiki tiles?

Good Question! We have learned that tile pros use a grout applicator that is just like a pastry applicator (dunno what it is called - the bag thing that bakers use to decorate cakes with fancy frosting). It lets you squirt grout into cracks that you want and keeps it away from everything else. In theory at least - I'll give you a report in a few days!

Yes indeed...Happy Anniversary. The bathroom is looking great. That aqua blue really pops against the tan tiles. Remodels can be stressful, but you will have an awesome loo when your done.
