KonaKaiBaby I like your Tiki Central name. Welcome to my thread of step by steps to tiki ceramics. I'm smiling from ear to ear from your comments. I went back and numbered or lettered each mug. You can let me know which one you mean using them.
I have already begun glazing and firing so if the color I chose for that mug is one you don't like there's no obligation to take it. I'll be showing them all here soon. So I can hold it for you just in case post which one it is by number/letter or re-post the photo.

lunavideogames I'm addicted to smiling when reading these posts. Thank you. We have kids in our family that are going to love this movie too. I want to go on the water slide.

===============================

I just noticed that we are #1 on Cool and Current. Thank you to whom ever put us there. Dan and I are thrilled.

===============================

I have posted so many photos here that they will have to speak for themselves. I'm showing not just the latest Tiki Bob's but all of Dan's Wish List #5 projects. He doesn't work for free. I make many things for his tiki collection.

So the process is...sculpt a tiki, make a mold, cast with slip, carve and fine tune the cast. Let it dry. Sand and blow off the dust. Bisque fire and wash the ceramics. Glaze and fire.

For Tiki Bob's it's do the inside then the outside. Then the eyes and mouth. Then the white face and then the clear coat which is green.

Everything has to be dry before firing or it will boil.

I hope you enjoy the process. This is many months of work to get to this place. Wendy


















































































































































































Now I need a break before I go back to work. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki you need to keep counting. None of those you counted are in this photo. Many of these were also waiting to be glazed. My table was going to break in half so I'm working on them all. More photos every day. It's so much fun when the kiln opens. Wendy

Wow, has been awhile since I was on here but I see you are as busy as ever Wendy! It was SUCH fun to meet you and Dan and take in all the wonder of your tiki land. Amazing collection and inspiring.

Love seeing your work happen! I have a few mugs I am really happy with, but still experimenting with glaze myself. So much fun though! Love your big Maori piece for Michael's show.

Yay! I'm SO excited

Oh Wendy, they are all even more wonderful now that the glazing has begun! They all really have their own personality. The one that really jumped out at me because of the cool pattern was the one you have labeled as the very first one in the very first pic. But if for some reason that one is already spoken for, the one next to it (#2) with the spiral on his forehead is also really fun.

My husband is building the mug shelves for behind our home bar now, and I'm going to tell him to make a special nook for the new happy Bob!!

Woodtiki multiple thank you's for all you wrote. We enjoyed our visit with you two as well. I am trying to finish off tiki projects some which started in 2012. I hope we see you at Oasis. Come back any time.

KonaKaiBaby I put your name on the mug to hold it. I believe it has been glazed in purple. So once you see it you can change you mind or claim it as your own. That mug is $75. I saw your shelves, you room is going to be beautiful.

KonaKaiBaby that is a wonderful coincidence. It hasn't fired yet. I am working on the next load. They photos are of things done prior to your mug.

=================================

It's easier to find things for sale on the last page because they hadn't been glazed yet. The batch just out of the kiln has been raided by my husband Dan. Most I'm about to show were part of his Wish List. If you see something that is already taken you can keep it in mind for the next Wish List #6 at the end of this year.

Opening the kiln is such a blast. Sometimes it's not fun when problems are found but this load was not one of those times.



Ready to go inside for some black velvet photos.



A quick look at Dan's Wish List Bowl with Frankoma tiki's by Joniece Frank.



The very scary Phantom of the Oprah Bob is available.








Dan took the yellow mug with colored tiles. The other two are available.




Dan took the last one with swirls the other two are available.




These are available.




==============================================================


DAN'S WISH LIST ITEMS OUT OF THE KILN AND INTO HIS COLLECTION. Dan doesn't work for me for free. He works for tikis.

A specially carved Coral Reef mug. Dan took it/




Dan took all of these.




Dan took all of these.





Dan took all of these.





I gave Dan's necklace to Johnny Barajas so I had to make Dan a replacement.


I cut the bottom off a mug and to not waist it I made a goofy cup. Dan took it.













A peanut face (I sculpted it) on a coconut bowl. Dan Took It.




A coconut bowl with Joniece Frank's tikis. Dan took it.




A volcano bowl with Joniece Frank's tikis. Dan took it.









I made this Tiki Bob with holes so that it could be a torch. Here's how we made it. Dan took it.










===========================


This mug was Jen Tiki's Wish List #5 request. She now has it in her hands. Thank you Jen.









====================================

Wow I just spent 3 hours getting these ready and posted. I hope you enjoy them even though Dan took off with most of them.
I have many more tikis to show but the next batch will have to wait until tomorrow I have tikis waiting to be glazed!

Cheers, Wendy
