hang10tiki if I'd known we were going there I would have taken the photo you did of Dan with the 6 foot high sandwich. Someday we will do that and use it to order!

Hale Tiki good I'm ready for pictures. It is going to be a Tapa snake, the only snake that is hiding well in the Hawaiian Islands. Information on that sandwich...I order a salad with a French roll. Then I steal half of his rare roast beef and add A-1 sauce and I've got a great sandwich too. Even during his birthday month he still helps me with ceramic chores but come the day he gets tikis for his collection. I ran out of spaces and had to move all the strips on the wall so I could put these new ones up once they fire. I hope that dartharnie will put them all together in a photo once he has them.

Big Kahuna I'll let him know.

Atomic Tiki Punk first Dan upstaged me with his mopping, then his chocolate chip cookies and now its the sandwich. I'll just have to work harder on my art.

VampiressRN thanks for asking. First I need to finish Wish List #3, the Severed Heads and the crawl mug for our Sacramento Crawl. Hopefully around September I'll open up Wish List #4.

This is a small side project I've been working on for Roge. He will use it with the base as a stand alone resin tiki and without the base on his resin chunk lamps. He's back from his vacation and ready to take orders. I'll add these photos to his Marketplace thread with the link to Etsy.

I took a shortcut and added sculptors clay to a Easter Island Tiki.


Then I used the large grain sandpaper to make texture.


All done.




Progress Report Wish List #3.

All the steps for this project for Liddle Lola. First I filled in the lettering with glaze and then did layer number 1 on the woman's body.


Step two I rubbed off all the excess glaze on the lettering with a wet paper towel and let it dry while I did layer number 2 on the woman's body.


Step number three. I painted the backside of the sign platform and did layer number 3 on the woman's body.


Next layer number 2 on the platform and layer one on the woman's hair.


Next layer number 3 on the platform and layer two on the woman's hair.


Now layer 1 on the front of the platform and layer three on the hair.


After two more layers on the front of the platform I scrapped glaze off of the flowers and painted them with orange glaze.


After the sign had three layers of paint on the flowers I did the same with the woman's flower.


After these have fired I will finish off the face and fine tune the sign if the dark brown doesn't come through the glaze that covered the letters.

It's time to start more glazing for the day. I hope you are all having fun, Wendy

Spectacular as always Wendy. It's amazing how you take a vision and make it real.

I'm so excited to add a Cevola original to the Kohana Wahine Lounge. It will look spectacular on the bar. I absolutely promise to post pics of it in it's permanent home.
It's only because of Dan's obsession I was able to barter for this piece because I just happen to have a duplicate of a mug that he doesn't. What are the odds? It's a win-win!

We enjoyed the visit the other day to pick out the colors. I love that Brian and Dan can talk music and audio stuff while we chat about everything else, lol.

I will keep a much closer eye on this thread now that I have seen everything you are doing in person.

I was reviewing the week to catch up

...we got:
Mrs. Pac man
Bob's naked butt
severed heads everywhere
snakes and shrunken heads
Dracula, the mummy and the invisible man
Easter island
naked women
war gods
volcano goddesses
Mother-load sandwiches

I'm beginning to think that everyone on this tread is a 14 year old boy.....

Wendy the breath and depth of your art is spectacular and awe inspiring. Kudos and thank you!

GROG I've been to LiddleLola home many times and she's always dressed. I guess she needs one in a birthday suit and I'm happy that it this one.

hang10tiki a mug below a bellybutton above isn't very shocking.

Oh, I was just writing about you. I'm so happy you liked the design. I really like the colors you chose. Dan enjoyed his alone time with Brian. He said they bonded over conversation. You are welcome here any time. I'm working to get a full load for the kiln and then it will be time to glaze.

LiddleLola 14 year old boys and girls. We never grow up but we are always happy. We tiki people are the best!

Yesterday while I glazed I read off all the ingredients for Pecan Date cookies. These are from scratch and are better than the chocolate chip cookies which are not. You put all the stuff in a big bowl and then mix by hand.

Bake for 15 minutes.

Flip and bake for 6 more. Then they are LiddleLola. If you want this recipe let me know here and I'll email it to you. They can be made soft too but horrors I'd never do that.




Progress Report Wish List #3

Remember my Severed Head with the snake. Last night we watched Prometheus and guess what I saw?

I swear I saw this after I'd made the head.

Equally gross.

MP's wish was for a completely flat black Severed Head. It's done and waiting to fire.


Then I worked on an AP head that will be like my Bloody Maori. It will have Moko added to the face today.

I outlined the eyes in black.

Then using a wet brush I blended them into the rest of the glaze.


First day of the week is here I better get back to work. Cheers, Wendy

Very cool stuff Wendy! Seems like I've been busy lately and don't make it in here every day Love the Shrunken Severed Head and the Mouthful of Tapa-snake Severed Head too. Dan's cookies look awesome, I can almost taste them. The Moai is not a "Shortcut", it is molded over an authentic Rapa Nui carving which imparts a special mana on all pieces molded from it!

Thanks for posting the picture showing the tops of the mugs! It's amazing how they don't look like there are holes in the top when you view them from the side. It's always fun visiting this thread. By far, my favorite thread on TC!

I have to say, I can never get tired of your step by steps- I look forward to them, and learn from each one. Thanks for continuing to educate all of us in how much time you put into each and every piece. Awesome stuff, look forward to seeing all the other severed heads as they... roll along.

..... darn, crickets again. I tried.

Wendy~... (i.e., lonnnnnggg pause)
I just realized that the wanton wahines have lovely tushies too, but not QUITE as cute as Beach Bum Bob's cute little tushie (modeled after Dan's tushie!)

I LOVE your step by step instructions, I learn much more than I will ever use!

If you want to see gross on broadcast tv, watch Spartacus, it is the bloodiest & goriest of them all! Their budget for blood & guts must be HUGE! Plus MUCHLY nudiestry (both male & female)

I would love to receive the recipe for the Pecan Date cookies! Besides, pecans & dates are BOTH healthy, right? So these cookies must be health food! Please send the recipe to me!

Yet another great day on the Wendy & Dan Show. Your ratings are going through the roof!

MadDogMike I like the way your mind works and what your hands form with clay.

LoriLovesTiki thank you so much Lori. I tried to hide the openings with the shapes of the head.

TikiAno I love sharing what I've learned and bless your heart for looking.

hang10tiki I've sent you the instructions for making the cookies.

WaikikianMoeKele we think these are cookies to be eaten instead of breakfast, lunch or dinner or with each of these meals. Recipe has been sent via email. All your posts are fun for me to read.


Bowlarama at the Tonga Hut. My entry is the tall read bowl. It sold so I'll never see it again!

We bought the Islander building bowl to the right from Eric October and Mahalo Tiki brought it to us yesterday.

Progress Report Wish List #3

I have all 30 of the Severed Heads washed and waiting for their turn to be glazed. That will happen after I finish all of the Wish List mugs. I'm getting closer. I need Chippy and 19TikiChef62 to respond to my emails concerning color choices.

So meanwhile I'm just finishing off the AP heads that were fired and other small projects. Once I've finished then I'll do a Severed Head marathon.

Yesterday I had enough pieces to load the bottom of the kiln. Now I'm working to fill up the top level.



In 2005 I came up with the idea for Da Bloody Maori. I wasn't a ceramicist yet so I did the sculpt and got Gecko to make the mold and to produce it. Our agreement was that my name was put on the back as large as his and that he make a couple for us. I also retained the name Da Bloody Maori for future use. The one on the right is one I added clay to and painted for Dan.


So here is the return of Da Bloody Maori Ren Clark Back From the Dead mug.








I had a left over woman so I made a rock base and now they are being glazed.


Time to play, Wendy

hang10tiki Dan packed up some of those cookies to take for a snack as he left for Jury Duty today. They work well as a meal substitute. It will be interesting to see if he gets on a panel. We always get turned down because his dad was a city police officer and then a federal marshal, his best friend is a retired homicide detective and our neighbor is a police officer. The defense attorneys always say, dismissed for cause.

Progress Report:

Yesterday was such a fun day for us. All of a sudden we said lets go to Lodi for lunch. That's a 20 minute drive from home. On the way their I said what if we drive for 10 minutes more and go on to Stockton. There's a Chinese Buffet there that we have always enjoyed. We then went hunting for tikis in town. We didn't find any but we met a man who grew up going to the Islander. He said that ever since he was a small boy he has collected their ceramics and paper items. He now wants to sell off all his duplicates. We are waiting to be called for what we think of as the ultimate adventure!

Of course being gone all day slowed my progress. Here's what I did accomplish after we got home.

I finished this woman sitting in the rocks. She is in the kiln.


I did all of the hardest glazing around the face and then noticed that Matt the Cat's mug had dust that I missed when I scrubbed the mug. I must have forgotten the brush and only used the sponge. One speck of dust makes the glaze crawl. I scrapped off all that I could see and then rubbed it with a wet towel.


I did all three layers of the first glaze and then set it aside to dry for the night. This is a look-a-like mug for Matt.


With Dan downtown Sacramento I will glaze all day until he returns this evening in time for dinner.

Thank you for stopping by, Wendy
