hang10tiki well thank you and what does that make Dan? I will continue to work to resemble that remark!

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

Another Wish List #5 progress report.

RVICTOR requested a mug that looked similar to the Tiki Modern book cover. He drew a beautiful picture of the mug for me to use as a guide. Sven I hope you like it.



Earlier this summer I carved and molded three new fogcutter shapes. From these I can make a lot of requested designs.
RVICTORS will be the first time I have cast and used one.


I started by adding clay where the face will be placed.


I smoothed and sharpened it up. Next it sat in plastic to firm up for several days until I could carve it.


Using the drawing I started with the eyes then


the nostrils and


then the mouth.


Next I did the lip designs.


I checked it against the RVICTOR drawing.


Used a flash for this one and


for the side view.


Now I started carving the tapa.


I did some of it while the mug was upside down.


Getting closer.


Done and Posing.














I told RVICTOR that the drawing could be done in a couple of ways. I told him that I would do one and if it didn't meet his expectations that Dan would be happy to take it and I would start again with his tweaks.

RVICTOR please check it over and let me know if you had ideas that I missed or if this is the mug you want.

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

Look what I found at Goodwill for $0.97. I love to pet him. My cat likes her back scratched with the beak.



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

5 days until Christmas. Cheers, Wendy

Wendy - I really like the carve. Look forward to seeing you accomplish the glazing as there are so many alternating fields of color.

hang10tiki (:

hang10tiki I'd forgotten I made that bowl. I like how the tikis eyes are looking up at the kiwi as it sips his nectar. I appreciate your additions to the "show".

RVICTOR cool now I can start the carving on another Wish List mug while posting things I made a short while back.

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


When the big storm was due to hit our area on December 10th Dan and I prepared our yard so that nothing would blow over or away.


We even took our concrete tikis and put them on their sides on the ground.


After the storm we went to lift them all back in place and dang it, this one snapped in half. We'll try to repair it by first drilling a hole top and bottom and putting a dowel in place. Is there such a thing as cement glue?


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

Hawaii is such a diverse landscape that there is even cactus. We've seen it. So in honor of Hawaii I've made a Cactus Body Bob.

I started by cutting out the shapes for the hands.


More detail.


I attached a hand and gave him a little


coconut mug to hold.


Now like the classic cactus statues of the past I attached his other hand/limb higher up


and gave that hand another little coconut mug to hole. Now he sat to firm up for a couple of days while in a plastic bag.


A cactus has a rounded head so I cast an ornament to use because it is hollow and


started to form the rounded lid. I smoothed the surface so I could add clay and not air bubbles.


I made the inside thicker first and


then I began to build up the clay on the top to the same thickness.


I checked out the size keeping in mind this clay is not as dry as the mug so it must be larger to start out.
Now this lid/top of the head is put into a big plastic bag with air so that it can slowly firm up.


Now I carved the little coconut mugs. In the Hawaiian language I carved Cactus on one and Body on the other.


Here I'm trying to figure out how I want to make the cactus thorns.


Now the lid/top of the head has firmed up and I'm carving to make it fit into the mug's body.


I added a hole to the top.


Bob not only has a lid he has thorns on his body.


Next I added them to the lid.


Now it is time to let him completely dry out so that I can fit the lid.


A couple of weeks later Bob is dry and I can see just how much clay to remove from the lid.


I used a sharp chisel and sand paper (I wore a mask) and carved it to fit.


Hopefully they will shrink the same amount in the kiln.


Side view.


I'll show a few more Tiki Bob's over the next few days while I get some photos going on Tyber Tikis Wish List Project.

Happy Holidays and Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki Cactus Bob A 2 fisted drinker is a better name. I've always needed help with that. Too bad it's already dry )o:

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

Heeeeeeeeere's Bob.


It occurred to me that I'd never seen a Tiki Bob where his rings went across his white face. Why not?


So I started carving first with the tool with the V shape.


All done with that one.


Now I used the wire brush to add surface detail.


His face will be white and smoother.


His body a coconut tree color.


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

I needed to make a few more flames for mugs.
I started with a mold for ornaments.


I carefully cover them with clay.


A picture to show the progression. Oops I missed the bisque fire step.


Once the flame is leather hard I can go back and add more detail.


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

That's it for today. I'll be back tomorrow. Cheers, Wendy
