Wendy!

First of all, I would like to thank you for telling Horrors in Clay to send me the best of the 6 variants you sculpted! I won't have a permanent place for the mug until the remodel is finished, and below is a picture of its temporary location. Secondly, the crawl mugs look great! I can't wait to have my own!


Best,

Kraken Hunter Steve

ebtiki it's like having a fun party to read all these messages. Tiki Bob and I thank you. It's good to hear compliments because I make so many Tiki Bob's on the side that I always fear everyone will tire of him.

TikiAno glad you like the coconut bowl too. I think I liked the goblet even less than Dan. I'm layering a glaze on top so I don't know what it will look like next. It makes opening the kiln more fun.

I guess I have a thread that is full of fun posts for every taste. R rated is back on this page with KrakenHunterSteve's kickstarter topless mug. Oh No!


MadDogMike we have three cars (one inherited from my dad) that are close to 19, 17 and 12 years old. When one bites the dust I'll use the garage space and get a small kiln so I can fire a few things each day instead of waiting until I have a full kiln.

Fix your kiln so we can have more fun MadDogMike shows.


LoriLovesTiki please do get back to work on your ceramics. I need more threads to watch. (Little Lost Tiki start posting again.)
Teachers do have really hard jobs. I did some job fairs at high schools to promote Nuclear Medicine and the kids asked really hard questions.

My health plan is by Dr. Ornish. I bought his books on-line. I did it for 1 year and now I'm taking a semi-break by eating some good oils.

LoriLovesTiki I knew my painting was large but it's really large in the photo. Please know I did it for fun so you can always trade it in the future. The goof gives me the creeps.

KrakenHunterSteve It's great to see one of the kickstarter mugs in it's new home. Are you coming to our Sacramento crawl or am I shipping your mug? If I'm shipping PM your address to me ASAP. I'm boxing mugs that have to be shipped now.

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

I was back to glazing. Meet Beehive Tiki Bob.


I finished the three layers of goldenrod and cleaned up. Then I noticed the lid on the other side of the table.


Oh well got everything back out and went to work.


This glaze isn't supposed to have chunks so I may have a surprise coming when it fires.


The next day I added some black to the bee.


I worked on the faces and when they were dry I


covered them with 2 layers of clear. Bob's take a lot of work.


The bowl is fine with or without the lid. I just wanted to have the lines on the bowl match the lines carved on the Bob's. After I did that it looked like a beehive honey pot.

More glazing tomorrow. Thank you all for the comments which are greatly appreciated. Cheers, Wendy

VampiressRN sometimes I'm surprised with how the glaze looks on a piece. I cross my fingers a lot!

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

I'm not sure what I should call this bowl. Any Suggestions? The outside is bamboo. On the inside it is islands with volcano's and one island with Moai statues.


This required a lot of different glazes.




I started with the bottom and the sides.


Then the inside of the bowl.


Next the Moai and a few big rocks.


All done.


Second view.


This is enough for the bottom of the kiln. Now I need to glaze more for the top shelf.


Every day is a tiki day. Cheers, Wendy

In a way it kind of reminds me of the Rano Raraku crater. On Easter Island you can go to the Rano Raraku quarry site where all of the Moai were carved and many Moai are embedded in the hillsides. But you can also go inside the Rano Raraku volcano crater where there is a lake and more Moai embedded along the banks of the crater. I have pictures of it. I'll try to find and post them this weekend.

PiPhiRho thank you for this information. I hope you can find the photos to post here. I'd love to see them shared.
I see you are from Redondo Beach. Do you know Kohalacharms?

hang10tiki what kind of fun have you been having?

TikiAno or Rano Raraku Bamboozled?


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

I did the fancy photos for my Gallery section.
























The real colors show up better in this photo.


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

This paperback book just arrived. It's next on Dan's list for reading.



=================================================================
This incredible lamp arrived in the mail too. It was made by Tiki501 aka Jamie. We made a trade and Dan and I are thrilled.









We figured out where to hang it today but it will take a ladder and so we'll work on it this weekend.

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

I have more work done on the back log. More photos tomorrow. Cheers, Wendy

The lamp is beautiful and sturdy and only weighs 10 pounds so sheet rock will hold it. We hope to hang it this weekend in the jungle tiki room. It's fun to share Tiki501's skills here. Wendy

I thank you on behalf of Tiki501. If anyone needs a lamp he's a very nice person and a talented lamp maker. Every time someone starts making mugs I love to watch. I hope all the lamp makers will invite Jamie into their group.

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

Vamp you are right. Whenever I have down time I cast a Tiki Bob and play with him. So many ideas just waiting for the right time.

A long time ago MP invented the Suggering Bastard Bob. It looked different from mine but I still asked his permission to use the idea. He granted permission and I have made, with this one, a total of four. I always marvel that they haven't blown up in the kiln with the amount of clay I've added to the Tiki Bob body. One air bubble and KaBoom!

Here are the colors I used. It will end up glossy black with gold specks.








I was asked by Mondo-by-the-bay to do a drunken Tiki Bob. I did this one at the same time and now it's getting glazed.
I decided to do a beautiful turquoise blue.








Now the drunken Tiki Bob and Suffering Bastard Bob were put out to dry out. I see something black on his nose and go in for a close up.



It's this fly and got a couple of photos

.


I did this three hula girl with cannibal pot a while back. It will be blue/brown when it's fired.








This actually took a couple of days because of the three layer rule.

Top shelf of the kiln and firing away.


Lot's of Tiki Bob's to come. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki when you don't comment here each day I worry about you being lost in the desert. Thank you for letting me know you're OK.

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

I opened the kiln and Dan helped me unload it. Every time a piece came out he said, "I want this, may I have it?" He's kept every single thing that was in this load. That's why I do the Wish List, those orders he can not touch!


Top Shelf.


The Frankoma Kings Goblet. It looks creepy older now.


Suffering Bastard Bob.


Intoxicated Bob.


The three hula girls at the cannibal pot.


Bottom Shelf.


Beehive Bob Bowl with lid.


The other Easter Islands bowl.








Now I need to take the black velvet photos for my Gallery pages before these disappear into Dan's collection.

How did I do ATP?

Cheers, Wendy
