hang10tiki you give us as much joy as our Fluffy (shelter cat, she had the name when we got her). I love the new stump tiki you've finished in your backyard, with and without the cloth.
Robb Hamel thank you so much, she is in the kiln right now. Out on Saturday morning.
Progress Report Wish List #3
I filled up the top shelf of the kiln...good to go.
I fired up the kiln when Survivor started on TV last night. When the show ended I checked and the kiln had failed again. I re-programed it and the second time worked. This morning the kiln said complete. I'll open it Saturday morning and I'll post photos on Sunday.
I finished Matt the Cat's mug that looks like him.
The name of his tiki lounge/bar is on the back like old classic places. Ringed in flowers.
I coated the under-glaze in gloss and into the kiln when dried.
I had one more AP to do and I finished it off. Windy days are great for drying them out.
Now I've started to glaze 19TikiChef62's 3 Missionary's Downfall Women's pot. The glaze on the pot is a brass metal glaze. It has to be fired at 04 rather than the 06 I use for all other glazes. So After I get two more layers done I'll need to work on those altered Severed Heads so I can fire a bisque load which fires at 04. Then I do the women and fire again at 06.
Off and running for the day, Wendy

In the metro Detroit area today thru Sunday to celebrate Christmas with 3 of my daughters, one granddaughter & one new grandson. My significant other (& father of my oldest daughter) got to met his only grandchild for the first time. I'm beside myself with joy!
Then getting to see the W & D update for the day was just icing on my happy cake!

GROG fingers crossed, there are a lot of projects in that kiln.
TikiAno I will tell him for you.
hang10tiki I hope Matt likes it.
WaikikianMoeKele wow I love being part of a happy cake. What a special day. There's nothing better than family.
Today is Dan's birthday and we will be going out to dinner with friends to celebrate. Now for five months he and I will be the same age, then I'll pass him up again. Yesterday we drove to Lodi, 20 minutes from home.
On the way to main street we turned down Elm. This was our first time on this street and look what we found. Who knows I may use this to design a mug in the future.
Dan got to pick out a place for lunch. He choose School Street Bistro.
Here is an art lesson. Perspective is everything. My hamburger is on the left.
Put them together and my hamburger on the left has shrunk. Dan likes them big!
Progress Report Wish List #3.
I did two more layers of the metal glaze on 19tikichef62's bowl. Now it is ready to fire when I have enough for a bisque load.
I next went to work on a mug for Chippy. It is really fun to co-ordinate colors. His mug is tan and has blue highlights. I found a glaze that has those colors in spots. So into the mug it went.
This still needs another layer of tan and then onto the white, black and blue parts.
Today is Dan's day but in the morning we open the kiln. So even if I don't work today there will be lots of photos tomorrow.
May all your days be special, Wendy
