Oh Wendy, I LOVE the tiger stripes. It really puts a finishing touch on something that was already beautiful.
THANK YOU.

I really like how you are experimenting with the new glazes and such, it's really fun to follow along on your progress/mistakes and triumphs. Once I get some money saved up I have a special project I want you to do, but I am not sure how it can be done. Is it possible to make air tight screw top containers out of clay?



Plastic inserts for the threads are your best option. See many a glass jar.

This is a week full of chores and tiki baking. I have crawl mugs in the oven with tigertail7777's necklace. I plan to start shipping some finished things soon. I'm collecting addresses. Hale Tiki this means you!

littlegiles I enjoyed reading about your messed up doll and that it could be fixed. I love tiger's necklace too.
LoriLovesTiki I try to share all I can. It would be wonderful to never make mistakes but if mine can stop others then terrific.
Professor G I was all set to paint the eyes dark blue to match and what happens the blue faded. However I love this mug and I'll let it go on to someone else who will too. Right now I'm out of ideas for the color scheme for you but that could change in the future and I'll let you know.
Beachbumz thank you but I just hate little errors. They bug me. The War God Lava glaze was not supposed to run but it won the Olympics.
tigertail7777 lids are the hardest part of ceramics. Hale Tiki mentioned an insert. The problem is that guessing how much the clay will shrink or the space glaze will occupy is not an exact science.
Hale Tiki that was a good suggestion. Horrors I hate lids!!!
VampiressRN thank you I like that look too. The crawl is almost here and we are excited.
hang10tiki that drill was too close but it made an exciting photo and that's what we like to share.

Thank you all for the wonderful messages. Wendy

Progress Report:

I keep refering to my orders binder for Wish List #3. I counted 12 custom Bob's and 2 bowls that I needed to start. So we got the molds back out. I had forgotten where all the leaks were located and the felt pen arrows were hidden by dried on clay. So....


We poured the sea life creature mold for the very first time.

It sat for 1 hour and then was emptied. This is the test to see if they come out of the mold and retain their detail. We'll see tomorrow if I have puffers and turtles.


I need to fire a bisque load with Beachbumz Moai Bowl so I started carving the dried out tikis that I did ahead. Here are four small Tiki Bob statues that are super carved.

I carried on the design to the top of the Bob's.


Next up I carved the PacMan Bob for Atomic Chick. SM Bacon designed it for her and sent me a full size map. It's not perfect but I did the best I could do. It's also ready to bisque. I have the bottom shelf loaded now and need to make enough for the top shelf.

Here are the step by steps. It took four hours which was far faster than the first one I made.










Eleven to go. I love making Bob's and every thing else too. But not lids! Wendy

Hey, I love that Pac Man mug! I guess it is one of a kind? If you made a mold, which it doesn't seem like you did, I would take one of those off your hands. But if it is just a one of a kind special order, I wouldn't want to rain on anyones parade who wanted the only one, so no problem either way.

All of your mugs are very stylish and unique. I will have to get one for my collection someday! Keep up the great work!!!

I love the Pacman mugs. Soooooo cool. I'm going to go show my boss at work now. He loves Pacman. And no, I'm not on Tiki Central at work. (That's a lie, I am.)

lunavideogames and Hale Tiki thank you. I'm becoming fond of Pac Man based on just doing this mug.

Progress Report:

Yesterday I did four 45 minute loads of mugs in my home oven. Now the enamel is set and I can box the crawl mugs. One week to spare. Hurray! I can also send tigertail7777 his necklace as well as some other finished tikis.


All but one of the sea life creatures came out of the mold. There is a lot of clean up but I'm very happy with how they turned out. Soon I'll make another strange mug.

I'm casting Bob's and bowls and misc. to be ready for more of the Wish List to be made.

This time I'm storing the damp casts inside plastic baggies and so far they do not show any signs of drying. Yippee.


I set up my work station to begin on Philot's Mayan Temple Jaguar bowl. The bowl has been wrapped in a couple of plastic garbage bags. In the weeks its been wrapped it didn't dry out either a double yippee!

He sent me diagrams for the bowl but recently requested the jaguars be larger. I used the bowl to decided what would work out.

Using a huge knife and a chopper I made three bricks.

I'm not as precise as the Mayans but they are close. I left them ticker so that I can carve from the top down and then cut off the excess.


Using his diagram I worked on the Mayan Temple.

I added clay where I needed it.

I copied photos from Google Images. To add the room at the top.

Next up will be all the steps to the top.


Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it so much, Wendy

YEA on the finished mugs.
YEA on the sea creatures working and their future as a fun mug
YEA on the stored stuff not drying out in their baggies

Guess I'm just full of YEA this morning. Love the beginnings of the Jaguar bowl also. You love a good challenge don't you Wendy.

- Dale

That Mayan Temple Bowl is going to be one major project, but I'm SO looking forward to seeing your exquisite execution of it!

Wow.
Impressive already.
I've had plenty of real-life distractions that have kept my attention occupied lately. I can't believe how excited I'm getting seeing this start to come together.
I hope this project doesn't drive you crazy Wendy.

I do love a challenge. I'm just so happy that Philot sent diagrams for me to follow. I once took the entrance exam for dental school. Part of it required that you carve a tooth from instructions like these. I aced the tooth and flunked reading. I had just taken a speed reading course and when I tried it during the test I blew it. I ended up with a negative score meaning I didn't read anything I just guessed at the answers and guessed wrong!

Thank you all for your comments on the little sea creatures and Philots wonderful challenge for me. You all rock!

Progress Report:

Dan worked really hard yesterday. He boxed and numbered all the crawl mugs.

It's good to see them ready for the trip along the crawl. Someday I'll uncover my furniture and have a normal house!


I worked on Alii Tikis small Frankoma bowl. Now it needs to dry.

I also cast and cleaned another Frankoma statue for Professor G. I'll try again to make his wish come true.


I decided to take the rest of the afternoon off and just play. I made a crazy sea life tiki vase with the recent casts from my new mold. This taught me a lot about how I need to cast them.

As I made this I dropped the Frankoma tiki on its face so I have to re-carve it into a different tiki.

The major problem was to keep air pockets from forming. This will probably explode.

I had to fill the backs of the creatures with clay or cut an air exit hole.



I'll go back and add some seaweed or other details. When it dries more I'll carve more detail into the floats and other creatures.


It will be fun to decide how to glaze it.

Chores today I hope I get to play with clay too. Cheers, Wendy

Front & back of the Frankoma tiki - hilarious! I love the Mayan mug. I saw Chichen Itza this summer, magnificent ~ you are doing an awesome job of recreating it.

Jon, you don't have to worry about Dan's blood on the mugs ~ that glowing hot drill bit would be self-cauterizing! That color of orange-yellow is about 2200 degrees

Wendy, I haven't looked through every page of your wonderful creations, but have you made a bowl that looks like a convex Tiki Bob?
