Wendy,

200 is very impressive but I'll bet you're on track to easily beat that number for 2013!!! You never cease to amaze me!

I'm supremely confident that you can fix Bella. I look forward to watching his repair and completion as well as cute little bare bottomed Bob.

Have a great day!

So many severed heads! I can't wait!

And I think that no one ever asks because they know they're in for a treat, and that you won't stop until you get it right. And boy do you get it right!

Wendy, thanks for more carving photos- especially helpful seeing what tools you're using. (Including multiple brushes, a big help (to me)). Fun contest, congrats to the winners- as well as the losers (aka "not winners").

Ditto Lori, too. I look forward to seeing the results. I also agree w/ Hang10, those mugs would go fast.

In honor of Hang10 and Grog, perhaps a Cookie Bob?

LoriLovesTiki I'm working on Bela, we'll see if I can heal him. Thank you for your encouragement. I've never counted before. My main goal is to add photos here so I can have fun things to read when you all post for me.

GROG You should listen to Lori, she's Mz. Awesomeness. <<<<LoriLovesTiki crush???

hang10tiki I'll plan a on-line tiki sale someday this year. I've too much to do right now. Come for a visit and he'll make you cookies.

GROG and cookies sounds like a treat.

Hale Tiki thank you.

TikiAno ha ha, Bob has sure had fun being transformed. Cookie Bob, who knows what's next.

Progress Report Wish List #3:

Part of any Wish List is glazing and testing the glazes. I've run out of the test strips so I made some more.
This one photo shows everything I use to make it. First I cover a board with plastic wrap. I use a wire to cut a slab of clay. I roll it out to 1/4 inch thick. Then I cut it with my chopper. Next I use a felt pen to make the hole for hanging it on a nail. I use a fork for lines so I'll see if the glaze enhances detail or hides it. I fold up the bottom so it will stand on its own. I mark my glaze identification numbers on the bottom.

All done now they just need to dry.



Next on the list is Little Lola's lounge logo Naked Lady. I'm using one of my Missionary's Downfall women.

I've poured one that will need someplace to sit with the sign.

First I choose the size of the print and rolled out a slab to fit.

I put the paper on top of the clay and used a skewer to press in the lettering.

All done I removed the paper.

Next I used a tool to carve out the clay.

This is far from done. When the clay is firm I'll fine tune the carving.

I rolled out another slab and added slip as glue. I smeared it around.

I curved the sign and placed it on the slab. Then front and back I added sticky clay to the seam.

I cut away the excess clay in the front.

I cut away the excess clay in the back leaving a platform for the naked woman. To see if she is totally naked you would have to peek over the top.

Top view.


dartharnie's Bela Lugosi undergoing repairs.
I followed the instructions on this product to put the arm back on. But first I filled the tiny holes.

The product takes up a small amount of space. So now I'll be building up the product until I can sand it and not see where they two pieces joined together.


I have a lot of art drying right now. We continue to pour Severed Heads. #19 is waiting to come out of the mold.

Thank you always for you posts. I appreciate knowing you are watching and value your comments. Cheers, Wendy

Some thoughts:

Lori LOVES Grog! Lori also loves Nui'mi who first called her Mz. Awesomeness. You guys know how to make a lady smile.

I want a cookie Bob too. I think he should be the color of Cookie Monster. And I want cookies, so tell Dan to get baking!

And I agree Wendy, you should post pics of your available pieces. I could even set you up with a Google site or something. Post pics and prices and people contact you with their orders.

Would there be a second website for selling Dan's cookies or part of the same site?

Not only is Wendy's ceramic technique and repair really interesting to me, and I always like to see the new glazes, but today's repartee . . . stellar. "Bake'em Dan-O?" Well said, H10. The Brotherhood of the Blue Bobs salutes you.

I almost joined the brotherhood, but sadly my wife wanted a Bobbie mug, so the last of my money went to her mug. Now she has a Wendy mug and I do not But a couple of those mugs that she is making are mine so this is exciting. I would still like that blue Bob if I see it for sale again. It was a very cool design!
