Love progress photos- as well as watching all of the steps you & Dan take for glazing the bisque fired pieces.

I also showed my wife photos of your home- I don't think I ever saw her eyes get so wide- she looked towards my "tiki corner" and said, "don't even think about it!" Coincidentally one of her best friends came over and was very impressed with said tiki corner. It was a proud moment.

That being said, even my wife was impressed with the photos of your home. She's slowly catching the tiki fever.... she just doesn't know it yet.

lunavideogames you spied right your Mrs. Pac Man mug has survived the bisque.

dartharnie It's also my favorite part when mugs are coming out of the kiln glazed.

TikiAno I'm always happy to hear that someone likes my photos. I like to post them for everyone too.

Progress Report Wish List #3

Severed Head #24 will come out of the mold today. I wasn't going to start on this project until I'd finished the Wish List. I can't quite believe that I've gotten this far before then. I didn't let it slow down the Wish List by much, I just added to my work day.

19TikiChef62 your bowl has been constructed. Is this your vision of the bowl? I need to know if you want tapa carved on the lip, top or bottom?

When putting these women onto the pot I have to keep in mind how I will be able to get a brush behind them to glaze. Also when attaching no air bubbles can be trapped.


I use sticky slip as glue and once in place I add more and sculpt again to make the hair look better against the pot.


This is the original sculpt style with both arms up.


This one was modified to have both arms down and one hand holding a sea shell.


This one was modified to have one arm down.


Top view.


Bottom view.


Dan is being used for perspective on how large the bowl is.


Dan has many uses!

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY

Wendy

Man, I thought I knew where you were headed there with that cannibal pot.
But seeing it come together in front of my (our) eyes, it's 50X better than I imagined.
WOW.

Customizing the wahines' poses is a really nice touch.

You don't really think Dan's going to let that one leave the house, do you?

OH my! Very nice. I think it would look good as a vase...with hibiscus in it.
Or was this pot created with a purpose in mind?

That's really impressive I'm looking forward to seeing it glazed.

This is a great thread, I'm not a clay person but I feel like I know alot more about the process now, thanks!

hang10tiki that's our biggest tiki and its very old so we keep it in the kitchen nook. I like Dan mustache free. I'm glad you like the bowl.


19tikichef62 I'm so happy to have fulfilled your wish. Your design got me motivated to mold the bowl I'd started many years ago. I like the top you added. I had to do a very simple tapa design because going behind the heads was very difficult. See below.

Philot sometimes I see Dan's hands shake as these are boxed to ship. He really loved your Temple of the Jaguar bowl. But all these designs belong to all of you and not to Dan and I. 50X not heard that before, thank you.
You don't really think Dan's going to let that one leave the house, do you?

Canvas I think, Oh my, fits this bowl especially when it is all in vibrant colors. Thank you for joining in and posting. I do this each day for the reward of the comments that come in to this thread. Welcome.

Atomic Mess clay is such an ancient art form that I love working in it. You and Canvas are new to me I hope you will continue to come back.

Thank you all for your posts. They got my day off to a good start.


For Valentines Day Dan took me back to the Delta King for lunch. The Delta Queen is on the Mississippi. In this photo you can see the Sacramento River, the Golden Bridge to West Sacramento. The paddle-wheel boat we were on is to the right.


A small lunch and then we walked around Old Town for 1.5 hours. Guess what in two shops we found Maori tiki masks. Just the usual kind but still fun to bring home.


2007 my how time flies.




Progress Report Wish List #3

Severed Head #24 is drying.

19TikiChefs bowl has its tapa ring.



When I was forming woman to sit up straight I did an extra one in case any were ruined. I used Professor G's idea and made a rock base for her to sit in.

I rolled out a slab and built up the rocks. I smoothed the inside.


I used a tool to cut around the rocks.


I used a paint brush to move clay to blend the rocks from bottom up.


I double checked to make sure she would fit when the clay is dry.


I HAVE FINISHED SCULPTING ALL THE ORDERS FOR WISH LIST #3.

I have many pieces still drying. They will be bisque fired along with the Severed Heads. Meanwhile I will begin to glaze each piece. If I don't know your color choices I will contact you as I need them. I will start with the easiest first. I need to test glazes to find what works best to match the Severed Head to the original.

Thanks for sticking with me, Wendy

Looks like you guys had a wonderful day!
& the pic of you from 2007, what a blast from the past! (I agree with you Wendy, although Dan is a very handsome man, he is even handsomer clean shaven.)

Another wonderful display
of your talent with clay
you have given us today
on the Wendy & Dan Show!

I am very proud my notion has proven to be of service. Nothing lends a sense of gravitas like looking down from a rocky promontory (they're a little hard to climb on, though, so I hope she's wearing practical shoes).

As always, Wendy, thank you for sharing your creativity and excitement with us.

WaikikianMoeKele Dan really enjoyed reading your post. Me too. All our days are wonderful.

hang10tiki great hearing from you too.

Professor G I love doing the rocks. If I can get yours glazed to your liking then I'll be even happier.



Wish List #3 update.

Severed Head #25 is cleaned and drying.

Time to sand another batch.


I decided to make matching mugs for my great niece and great nephew. These will go with the bowls I gave them at Christmas.


I've cleaned up the nook so I can start to glaze every thing.



It's time to sign up for the Sacramento Crawl mug. I posted this on the Sacramento Ohana facebook page and within an afternoon had 9 orders. I am going to start on this mug as soon as all of the wish list items have shipped.

The mug will look just like this tiki from the Coral Reef in Sacramento. It will say Coral Reef on the back and Sac Ohana Crawl will be carved into the bottom along with my name and copy write date of 2013.










It's time to go hunting for glaze in my shed. A fun Saturday ahead. Cheers, Wendy

Hunting for glaze in your shed is like hunting fish in a barrel ~ you can't swing a tiki without knocking over several pints of glaze

MadDogMike it just occurred to me that I didn't make any money last year because I bought all that glaze and I haven't finished anything on Wish List #3. Soon I'll be glazing all those pieces including the Severed Heads and I'll be replacing all the money that I've spent and have more to spend on tiki events.

Progress Report Wish List #3

All these pieces were dried so I carried them to the backyard.


Dan with ear and lung protection blew off the clay dust inside and out and into the kiln they went.


I went through all the pieces from the last bisque fire and choose those whose colors I already knew for glazing.


Colors and more colors ahead. Fun times ahead, Wendy
