The trio is absolutely AMAZING! Seriously, they should be on display in a museum.

Today's stupid question - are they actual mugs? I assume that the invisible man's hat removes but I can see a mug opening on Bella or the Mummy.

?????

But I love them either way. Just curious.

Bela Lugosi mug scares me as much as the black & white movie did when I was a kid, and the Mummy is just SOOOO scary!
But my all time favorite is still Beach Bum Bob! I smile every time I think of his cute little tushie! (hee-hee)
(I admit that I'm a sucker for a cute tushie!)

Holler Waller the color is better than in the photos and it should match your Diamond Head mug. I'm happy you like it. I'll contact you soon about shipping etc..

LoriLovesTiki they are mugs and open at the top.

Wouldn't it be fun if there were a tiki museum? Right now I'm thrilled to see a home photo with one of my mugs showing. Thank you.

hang10tiki me too another step closer to being finished.

Canvas welcome back. I will be making the hair strands less thick on the run of mugs. I was happy to find the right glazes on the first try.

WaikikianMoeKele scary is good. dartharnies kids liked to drink from the Frankenstein mug and were not scared at all!
Dan must love that tushie too because he was after that mug from the start.

Thank you all for the compliments. They mean everything to me and I work harder to deserve them, you are all so kind.

Progress Wish List #3

I've re-glazed the Invisible Man and Dracula. The green glaze turns to clear.


I was lucky to find the right glazes for the Severed Head run but that left me with extra cast heads. I decided to work them up as 1/1's by special glazing or by adding clay. I've done the first three with clay.

This is the most disgusting one. A snake entering the ear

and exiting the mouth. I still need to carve the snake and to add eyes.


I wanted a version with the tongue out all the way

and the eyeballs popping out in horror. Even his ears are standing out further from the head.


I'm working up the next one as a shrunken head. Photos tomorrow.

Today we travel to Alpha Fired Arts for glaze. Then once home I'll be using it.

Friday the first step to a great weekend. I hope you all have one, Wendy

Love the Universal Monster trio. Bela looks great. The severed head is really cool too. The colors are bang on with the original.

I will not be making it to Tiki Caliente sadly. I am just back from vacation and I am heading out again next Monday. Just got 3 wedding invitations for this year, so I might not be travelling too much besides the weddings. I am going to try to be at the next International Tiki Marketplace, so Wendy, if you think you will be there I can grab those mugs then. Or I am happy to pay and get them shipped together or separately, either way is fine by me. Just let me know if I should send you payment or anything. Thanks!

ZeroTiki spook-TASTIC is a fun new word to hear. Who would think that a Severed Head would be one of the most desired tiki mugs in existence. So now I'm doing the finishing touches on the monster trio and playing with jazzing up some of the heads. It's all fun.

Tabu thanks Tabu, its fun using your name. I'll be trying to make the hair even better. Practice is all it takes.

hang10tiki thanks hang10 the shrunken head is in the works and I've had the most fun with it.

lunavideogames it will be awhile before I know about DTB in April but I'll keep in touch with you. Have fun at the weddings and convert the attendees to tiki during the receptions.


Out and About and Updates on all the projects in the works.
How do I include these images in my posts?

This is Dan's birthday month. He gets to choose where we go whenever we are having lunch out. We went to Alpha Fired Arts for new glazes. It is close enough for a stop at Claim Jumpers and their Mother-load sandwich. It's not on the menu you have to ask for it.


Dan loves to bump tikis from spot to spot and in the end Beach Bum Bob was given a place of honor in the Tiki Jungle room.


I opened the kiln and so far in the warmer weather it has worked just fine. No explosions, all the arms and women stayed on the the bowl for 19tikichef62's bowl.


Dan filled the wash and rinse tubs for me.


I got the scrubbers ready. All 30 Severed Heads have now been bisque fired and washed.


Tender loving care with this one.


All the new glazes from Alpha needed glaze tests. This is how I do it as fast as possible. Three lines of glaze, then do the bottom two again and then do the first on again. So each test has an example of 1, 2 and 3 coats of glaze as well has showing how well it shows detail on the side.


Our cat hangs out with our PNG alligator and watches while I wash.


This is my entry into the bowl show at the Tonga Hut tomorrow. Mahalo Tiki is transporting it there for me. We meet for lunch today. The name is Pele Rising. She is coming out of the volcano with streams of lava and rock. The War God is by Joniece Frank of Frankoma Pottery the rest is by me.







To change the Ren Clark severed head into a shrunken head I closed the mouth and eyes and then stitched them with clay rope. I closed up his nose with tusks. I will carve a lot of wrinkles and pull lines into the head after it dries.






Well, that's all folks for today. Now I've got to get to work. Thank you for the visit. Cheers, Wendy

I'm working on shooting you an email with some photos, but took a moment to pause to post on here

That snake head is disgusting, and I mean that in the absolute best way possible. I love it, and I'm glad you're going nuts with the extra heads. It'll be nice to see more of what you can come up with (even when you have a little inspiration from someone who doesn't realize he's types shrunken instead of severed).

I'm looking forward to what you're going to do with the snake most of all. The detail, the coloring...there's just so many places you could go with that!

Also, once again, I am very jealous of that sandwich, Dan. I went to go to my favorite sandwich place this morning for breakfast, but had to run home for my wahine. So color me jealous. Also, I'll say it again, the next time I'm out there, I look forward to joining you for one!

I like how you guys do birthday month. We do birthday week out my way. 3 days before, 3 days after. Wherever you want for meals, with surprises planned. It's a lot of fun. I'll bet birthday month is a blast!

It's very exciting to see those glaze tests It's been awhile since you've posted any, and I love your wall of tests.

Well, back to my email! Look forward to more progress.

(Post script - Didn't get a chance to post about the monster mugs, but what really struck me was that how in general, they looked like they were greyscale, as if they were right there on the screen in black and white. I think they really turned out great. It'll be neat to see all four of them together. A Frankensten severed head, perhaps? As a tribute to Vic's first restaurant?)
