Is that a ceramic bit on the Dremel?
Aren't you suppose to apply water when drilling with it?
Who invented liquid soap & why?

Thinking of these things, "Boggle's" (by Hasbro) my mind!

Hi Friends, this has been a week full of non-tiki chores. I did manage to do a few tikis this week but yesterday I just touched up one that I'll show below.

MadDogMike I had to use the front and back you just can't waste any part of a good tiki.
tikilongbeach nope I have never done any convex tikis. I have this Parrot wall plaque made that way. It's hard to tell in the photo but it is really cool to look at.


Atomic Tiki Punk it is a ceramic bit but I didn't know about the water. I know the ceramic dust melted around the hole. The person who invented liquid soap was the person who got tired of using soapstone to bathe with.

Progress Report:
I decided to make the tiki a diver on my sea creature mug/vase.


Now I'll let it dry to leather hard so I can fine tune and carve the seaweed better.

Today we need to ship some tikis but I still hope to work some clay. Cheers, Wendy


_PS Under Collecting Tiki Pittsburgh pauly is running a Halloween mug swap to replace the Christmas Swap since Sandra Dee is not able to do that one this year. If you are interested you need to sign up by October 15th and ship by the end of October. This is always a fun event.________________

Love the diver Wendy, I have a pint of Aztec Gold glaze by Western Ceramic Color that might make a good helmet for the diver. It's the one I used for this


If you want I can send you a some.

LOVE the diver mug. Too cute. That metallic glaze would make an awesome helmet Mike.

MadDogMike I have the glaze, I'm going to be using under-glazes. I'll have to think that through. Good suggestion.
littlegiles thank you too.

WE SHIPPED!
On the way a box for littlegiles, tigertail7777, hang10tiki, WaikikianMoeKele and Hale Tiki. If you owe me money I'll send you a PM. Thank you all for entering the contests or ordering a tiki. Very slow shipping on the freebies and Priority mail for the others.

Progress Report:
Yesterday was a Saturday full of home chores but in the afternoon I got tiki busy. I am trying to fill my kiln with items to bisque fire. Because of that I worked on some of the dry Bob's that I made ahead but couldn't use for the Wish List. I'll be really happy when I've used them and cleared shelf space for the real projects.

Here's what I got done yesterday day from noon to night.

I only had one person who liked the taller version of Bob. So I beheaded Bob using a 1960's electric knife. These knifes cut hard clay, rubber sponges, and carpet really well. To me this is a garage tool. I do have one in the house for Angel Food Cake and Turkeys but one in the garage is a must.

After the cut I sanded the top flat and smooth with the mesh sand paper.

I finished all that I had left except for 1. I had an idea for this one.


It was time for a female. I call her French Kiss Bobbie.





Anoter PNG Bob mug.


I did an all red flame Bob his will be a yellow and red Hot Bob.



My very last for the day is AMAZING Bob. START at the bottom and go through the maze until the end. If you make it you are sober if you don't get some coffee.



I worked hard to make this a difficult maze. Dan tried 4 times and couldn't get through it. He'd only drunk coffee so I felt really good about the maze.

More chores today and maybe more Bobs too. Thanks for the visit, Wendy

Oh Oh no comments to answer. I'm going to have to work harder to deserve them! Thank you to all who dropped by. I've a few more things to show. The kiln will be filled soon and I'll be back to the Wish List projects.

Marone Tiki and his lovely lady Debbie came to visit and pick up his Moai Bowl. Thank you Monty.


I started off working on more of the dry Bob's. This first one is a small ring coconut tree Bob.



WaikikianMoeKele's Waikikian small Bob showed that tiny carvings show up well. Because of that I did Doodles Bob. I just drew all over him with a sharp point. I still need to fine tune it.





Another version of Tapa Bob.

Oops blurry.



The clay was hard enough for fine tuning so I finished off Diver's Cove.






At the end of the day Dan and I worked on the garage. I needed a way to store the molds we've made but to make them accessible for use. They are so heavy that moving them around has been a problem for me.

They are now labeled and placed in Dan's garage mans cave.

We are holding back the grass skirt. It covers most of them so his cave still looks good.


The Sacramento Crawl and the Halloween Swap are almost upon us. Tiki Central is sure a fun place to visit for updates.

Cheers, Wendy

Hi Wendy and Dan!

Gotta say, I am loving your bobs! you are doing such a fantastic job recreating the original look, but adding your touch to them to make each one unique

You guys are non-stop ceramicists and producing some really cool and one-of-a-kind items!!!

I hope the tiki is treating you well still, he was a mellow fella around my place, but always up for a late night carving/designing inspiration session!!

I like the Doodles Bob and I can't wait to see how the Diver's Cove mug turns out.

Polynesiac I do have fun altering Bob's. I think he's my child.
tikilongbeach I'm so happy to hear someone likes Doodles. I really need to figure out how I want Diver's Cove to look when glazed. It's a challenge.
hang10tiki I hope your small Bob is there soon.
tigertail7777 Your necklace has shipped too. I'm happy you like the maze.
Professor G thank you very much.
littlegiles the maze was a challenge to do but it turned out to be a hard one. Marone Tiki gave up and started at the end and worked his way to his other finger that has begun at start. So yippee it worked he had to cheat!!!

Progress Report:

I worked non-stop yesterday and so today I'm resting. The kiln filled up and is firing right now. So soon I'll be working on the Wish List projects.

Here are the Bob's that I now have in the kiln.

Super Carved Bob




Dip Bob like the old peanut mugs.




Woody Bob like an old pier.




Sheet Metal Bob. I'll do him with a metal glaze.




Pineapple Bob fashioned after the Palm carved tikis I see on the carving thread.





Bobbies smirk need I say more?


Another Super Carved Bob.



I had them all out drying this week and now they are in the kiln.

They come out on Thursday.


Today we did chores at home. I didn't touch a single tiki...yet.

Cheers, Wendy

Wow Wendy, you and Dan have been very busy bees. Love the new Bobs. The sheet metal Bob is my favorite I think, a unique concept. Its fun to see all the different tools you use to get the desired effect on each one.

- Dale

PS, so when you going to make a zombie hand to go on that tiki Farm entry? Would be great for Halloween! I know you don't have anything else to do. HAHAHAHAHAHA

The letters are starting to wear off on the keyboard keys I use to spell "beautiful", "stunning", and "wow." The scribbles are a whole new area of fun for you and all of the new Bob surfaces are great.
