A few stops at Trader Sams











































They wouldn't sell me a menu,
but I purchased a few mugs and shot glasses.

lunavideogames love the photo. Thank you. That girl sure gets around.

hang10tiki I have been relaxing while you did all the posting work. I really enjoy your photos and the presentation. I'm looking forward to all the photos when Tiki Hula has his return visit to see you.

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

Catch up photos.


This past week we have been working to box up the Hot Tub Hula Girl mugs and to


get them into the mail. We did that today but I forgot to take a photo. There was a long line behind us because we had so many boxes to mail.


On Sunday we went to an antique fair in the gold country. We don't think these are old skulls but made into lamps they sure will shine.


Here's their card.


I found my Christmas present from Dan. I got to hold it and then he wrapped it up and hid it.


I am starting to pour mugs again for the next Wish List #7. If you have an idea for a mug or bowl or head or painting or whatever it's OK to send your idea when you are ready.

Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki those photos of the Enchanted Tiki Hut just blew my mind. I didn't know those slit drum tikis are still there. Could you please send me all of your photos from there that show tikis especially the last ones. I have orders for more black velvet paintings based on those tikis and I only have a couple of photos. You will really help me. Thank you ahead of time.

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

Well it's getting near time to let orders come in for Wish List #7. I won't start really working until the end of December and then it takes 6 months or so to get to the finish line. I also start the next crawl mug in January by sculpting and molding it. I worked on the binder today so that I can keep track of the orders. I will also do black velvet paintings.

I've started to pour a few items ahead and then I wrap them in plastic. Today I learned something. I know that if the slip is not just right that it hangs up in the bottom half of the mug when you go to pour it out. That's why I've made torch lamps when I couldn't make a mug because the bottom had to be dug out to remove the wet clay.


I decided to pour a HUGE Maori lamp. When Dan started to pour in the slip we both noticed that it was too thick. I said well this lamp is so HUGE that it probably won't matter. When Dan poured out the slip a couple of hours later he didn't check the insided.


Well I learned that thick slip also hangs up in HUGE casts.


When I opened the mold the next day the lamp melted like the Wicked Witch in OZ.


I caught all the clay in a plastic bag and I will be able to use it when I hand build. I like slip made clay better than buying a big block of clay.



The next day we poured the lamp again and a big bowl.


I wrapped the lamp up so that it will keep until I'm ready to work on it.


Same with the HUGE bowl. I store it upside down. The air trapped inside will prevent it from collapsing.


Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki I've started on the binder, organizing orders. This should be a fun one. No big deal on the lamp, just a one day set back. Thank you again for all the wonderful photos of your latest escapades.

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

Time for more catch up photos.

Yesterday Dan and I took his sister Kathi to a town we had never visited before. DIXON, CA. Only 45 minutes from our home.
We had so much fun tiki hunting while there.

Dan found an Amway bottle. This was the first time he found one with the label on the bottom and the fluid inside. It's a wow
fragrance that Dan said he'll wear for me.


On our last day trip to Folsom I found this fork. It was in such good shape I bought it. The dining room is filled up with all the sets of forks and spoons that I had to find a place for this one elsewhere.

It is now in the Buzzy Bedroom.


In the same room we hung up some grass skirts. We are decorating crazy. You can see Buzzy in this photo.


When we were in San Diego for the Tiki Oasis 16 we went to Old Town. I picked out a couple of hanging birds.

These two small birds in rings finished off our bird area.



I love a challenge. I have to organize and fit all of these Sacramento Crawl mugs and Hot Tub Hula Girls into our vehicle for the crawl that starts on the 30th. I will really have to get these organized. That's one reason I'm asking everyone who can to pay me via Paypal before the event. One less thing to do when paring mugs with owners!








We continue to pour mugs for the next Wish List.

More crawl mugs and bowls.


We have now poured another 9 bringing the total to 80.


I will keep these wrapped until I begin to work in December.



Well that's my catch up for today. Cheers, Wendy

LoriLovesTiki I am going to make more of the run for the Sacramento Crawl during the next Wish List #7 since it's a run of 100 and I just made 71 so far.
I am so glad you like it. They were worth the extra work.

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

I've just been doing odd jobs while and getting ready for the Sacramento Crawl.

I went to Alpha Fired Arts to get some more glaze and that's my kind of store.


But when I go there I always find new glazes and then I have to do the glaze tests. This started a big project for me. I needed more of the strips
for the tests and then I realized that I had 20 pounds of clay that was getting to be too hard to work so.........


I started cutting up the blocks of clay and


turning them into small slabs with holes in the top for hanging on nails.


I used this metal tool to


make these indentations. This way I can see how the glaze will react to carved detail.


I got this many done and then I spent a couple of hours cutting up all the clay and putting it into plastic bags with a bit of water which should keep it good for a few more months.


They are now on the shelf with all the bowls and mugs I'm pouring in anticipation of the next Wish List #7.


I am taking orders now. When I reach 50 projects I will close the list.

Cheers, Wendy

Long time lurker here (for the most part)

How does one submit a request for the wish list? Do we post in this thread, or a private message?

hang10tiki the shelves are filling up by the day. Summer is so much better for pouring than winter. Winter takes longer for each cast and for the molds to dry. It's best to start pouring right now!

Brian K welcome to being visible although lurking is appreciated too. You send me your idea using Personal Messages at the top of the page. Then I will share my email with you so you can send me a drawing or photo of your idea.

To see what I have made in the past check out my "Gallery" page. The most recent Wish List is on the last few pages.

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

I think I have 25 or so sign ups so far. I will contact each one of you again before I start work. Cheers, Wendy

zerostreet you too! Have fun vending at Ohana on the Lake event. Wish we could be there.

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

The Sacramento Crawl is so close. This is a wonderful time for us. One we get to deliver all the mugs and to see all of our friends but I also have time to catch up on projects and to prepare for the next Wish List #7.

My project yesterday was a vanity project. I decided that since it was such a thrill to be the featured artist in Tiki Magazine that I should make sure that I never forget that feeling.

I had a frame with photos that I had taken of plants in Hawaii more than 10 years ago. I emptied that frame and filled it with my article and pieces I cut off of the photos that I removed.


So I began cutting and taping.


All done. Now where do I hang it?


AHhhh there was a perfect spot in the hallway with all the crawl mug boxes.


Done. Now I have a vanity wall!


I couldn't bare to cut up a magazine so this was done with photos.


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

As of this morning I have 31 of the 50 places filled. I decided to do it by person rather than by object because some people order as many as 8.

As soon as I hit 50 the Wish List is closed for orders.

Cheers, Wendy

PS I will contact each person before I start to check for changes
