Everything looks great! It reminds me of a Big Mama's Fish House mug that I have. Except really well done. And with a better glaze.

A huge THANK YOU to:

Mahalo Tiki

I love it when something funny happens. I have two tables covered in these mugs. I picked up two for the photo yesterday. Did I notice that Sacramento was spelled wrong on my selection, nope. Thank you secret friend for letting me know. This morning I did the flash light check and there was only one mug spelled incorrectly. That one will become my personal mug. I had 37 mugs to choose from and by choosing this one it was prevented from being sold to an unsuspecting person.


This happened when I fine tuned the lettering on each mug. Molds are never perfect and it took an hour to clean each one and to add all the grooves. Somehow I fine tuned an N into a M.

Dan put on some fun music and sanded all the bottoms of the mugs for me. All the spike bumps are now smooth.


I had prepared to glaze a week ago and today I started.


I've done the first step to paint the bodies on the WaikikianMoeKele, hang10tikis, littlegiles, tigertail777, ebTiki, Steve Soto, and Corona Contessa's Bobs.



Dan likes to be rewarded for his work so I also painted the Eric October bowl that I've been trying to repair. I poured in a jar of glaze covered the surface, removed the excess and then painted the bottom.



The bottom shelf of the kiln is filled. My goal is to do enough glazing today to fill the top level. Each of the Bob faces need three layers of white and black and then 2 layers of clear. Then I'll move on to the next mug.

Once my kiln is firing I'll hand paint the enhancements on a crawl mug so everyone can see how the final product will look.

Thank you always for your time and notes. You all make my day special, Wendy

That misspelled mug could be worth lots of money, like a double stamped coin!

I thought "Sacramemto" was the retirement area just north of Sacramento?

Dan, you're sanding the bottom the hard way. Tape your sand paper down to a flat surface (or just hold it in place with one hand) and move the mug around in a circular motion on the sandpaper. This is also the best way to get a flat surface on your mugs so they don't wobble when you are doing your greenware cleanup.

WOOHOO! Glazing has begun. I love this part of the game. Actually, I love all the parts but the glazing and seeing the colors come out of the kiln is my favorite.

Fun to see my little Bob dude with some color too.

I just LOVE the color on those crawl mugs! Why oh why don't I live in California? I love them just the way they are but am curious how the final product will turn out.

fantastic, as always Dan & Wendy!!

That blue is stunning. Loved it inside the bowl from the last wish list... love it more on the crawl mug.

hang10tiki we love to be looking good but then I realized you meant the ceramics!
MadDogMike I should hold a raffle for the Sacramemto mug if its worth more
Atomic Tiki Punk its south of Sacramento were we are retired to tiki making
Grog I love having an original drawing by you. I do sand the green-ware that way and he did start out with the sandpaper on the table he but fine tuned at the end with sandpaper in hand.
hang10tiki Grog is aging with the rest of us and has less hair now.
tigertail7777 it is a pretty orange, would you like some black tiger lines too?
littlegiles opening a kiln to newly glazed tikis is the really fun part, I agree.
LoriLovesTiki the hula girl has to have a face and lei, just a few touches to jazz these up.
dartharnie this was the first time I risked it all. I put the spotted glaze on with my finger the then we spraypainted on the second solid blue. I didn't know it the spots would shine through or if it would all stick together and not fall off. The tiki gods were with me and I'm sooooo happy.

Progress Report:

These are all Wish List Orders that need to be glazed

along with these in progress.

Dan chose to have his peanut bowl glazed just like the crawl mugs.



This is a Moai bowl for Marone Tiki




All of these that I just glazed will come out of the kiln Sunday night or Monday morning.


The bottom shelf of the kiln is covered with the rest of the crawl mugs and the Eric October bowl.

If you don't see your order in these photos I haven't forgotten. I have a binder full of orders and page by page I'll fulfill your wishes.

Tomorrow we are going to the South San Francisco Bay Area Home Tiki Bar Crawl. I'll take some photos to share. We've been one time before and after driving circles on the top of a mountain for 2 hours we gave up and missed the last stop. This time we are skipping the GPS which kept us lost and we are using map quest to find the home of Tikitastic. We are so excited for a second chance.

May you weekend be as fun as ours, cheers, Wendy
