http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ren-Clark-Severed-Head-Tribute-Tiki-Mug-by-Notch-Rare-Limited-Bloody-Halloween-/330843949770
Wow did you all see the auction yesterday where Notch's head went for $372. I hope to see that happen some day with the heads I'm about to make. Mine are priced at $125 each and I'm taking orders now.


_________________
Thank you hang10tiki. I have a green glass bowl I won at the California State Fair throwing dimes when I was 8. I've loved that bowl ever since, my sister has a turquoise Fiesta ware bowl she won the same way 12 years before and its special for her. I hope I make a good Christmas memory for them with these. I've covered their last names which are also on them.

Progress Report: we have really slowed down being ill and getting ready for Christmas but I've done a few things.

We opened the kiln and found that the Nathan Jr. and Samantha bowls were just fine. Now I need some goodies to fill them with.



See how far away from each other the bowl and mug are? Well that mug spit on the bowl making a blue spot on top. Warning, any chunky glazes have the possibility of doing that.


On the bottom shelf was the Temple of the Jaguar bowl, 2nd glazing to cover some tiny glaze skips between different glazes.


Another glitch. But this shows my Sea Creature mug glaze really well.


On close inspection of the jaguar bowl I found than new glaze skips developed between glazes. So it was back to work on it adding more glaze again.


I had two more pieces from the dry series that had been bisque so I glazed them so that the kiln wasn't so empty.


I've always wanted to see if glaze could "glue" a piece to another piece so I added a puffer fish.


This is the third time I've glazed the jaguar bowl. I hope that this time it has worked. It is cooling in the kiln right now.

Next step for the Sea Creature Swap.
I used Super Sculpey to make 3 deep sea fishing poles.

I baked them in the home oven.

Then I painted each one.

The mug is the ocean. What can be caught when fishing from its depths?


It is just so much fun to be on Tiki Central and to spend time with each of you, Wendy

Don't forget that I'm on that list!!! If no one has claimed it, I'd love to get unlucky #13. I can't wait to see your Ren Clark Head.

I love the glaze on the mug for the swap. I don't know anything about glazes, and so how it turned out is NOTHING like I thought it would based on looking at the glaze.

I dig it. Looks great. There's gotta be some kind of tiki mug you can do that one. Tiki in shape, that is. Maybe a Rarotongan, since that's the fishing god.

Anyway, hope Dan is recovering well! If I don't get a chance before Tuesday, I'll say Mele Kalikimaka now!

Hale Tiki you won the contest. I passed the 300,000 mark for views on my thread and you were closest to that number. I'll find something and put it into the mail soon. Congratulations, Wendy

__PS if I bump Dan off the list that makes your Severed Head mug number Sweet 16, sorry 13 is taken unless I have withdrawls. Check page one of this thread for the list._______________


Also I will be painting on the mug, thank you for the tiki idea.

Eek!
That's amazing. Wow. 300,000!?!
Just think, 300,000, someone has come to this thread, and been delighted, or smiled, and enjoyed your work.
That's quite an accomplishment!
It has to be the most viewed thread here on TC.


Thank you so much! I love surprises!!!

I can't wait to get it, and to give my wahini her Christmas present made by you in a few days!

No worries on the number then, just thought I'd ask.

I better get working on my swap piece. I've got a lot of carving to do!

How's Dan's knee?

Hale Tiki and hang10tiki thank you for keeping my thread alive.
I stole all the hang10tiki photos, thank you. I hope we visit you one day to see "my area."

Hale Tiki your Prize has shipped by parcel post so lots of days from now it will arrive. Don't look now or you'll see what you won.
This is the moai I sculpted for Roge's chunk lamps. I molded it for bowls and to hang on walls. I've sent you a pewter version. I hope you will enjoy it.


Progress Report

This cold still has me down and Dan isn't allowed to drive until next Thursday so progress is slow. But I finally finished the Temple of the Jaguar Bowl and after the third time in the kiln there are no glaze skips, yippee!
Bottom shelf.

Top shelf of the kiln had two bowls. The glaze did glue the puffer fish to the bowl. Both bowls came out fine without any glaze skips, a miracle for the black rock glaze.



Next up I've been working on the Sea Creature Swap mug. I've had help from Hale Tiki. He mentioned that I should use the Fisherman Tiki so I did.
I got out my glossy paints and I printed a bunch of photos from Google images.

First I cleaned the ceramic with alcohol to help the paint stick.

More fish.

This is not done but I have a good start.

My after Christmas goal is to work hard and to finish everything on Wish List #3 and to start pouring the severed head mugs. The mold is not yet dry but it is getting closer.

Cheers and happy holidays, Wendy and Dan

Wendy, that glaze fusing technique works real well and I have used it several times. The nice thing is that you can detail paint on the piece while you have it OUTSIDE of the mug where you can get to it. Then you drop it down inside when you fire it and it becomes permanent

Great work as usual Wendy. The bowls came out fantastic and i'm looking forward to seeing the outcome of your swap piece. However i just wanted to point out, without being a downer, that the red and blue striped fish you have painted near the bottom is a freshwater fish called a 'Cardinal Tetra' that is found throughout the Amazon in South America. (Sorry, fish nerd is showing. I worked in the aquarium industry for too long.)
