I love the headline, "Four altered severed heads are fine tuned".
It reminds me of an old cartoon I saw where a headhunter is playing xylophone on human skulls.

Love the finger hole Severed Head Wendy You had told me about MP's request for a satin black head. I didn't say anything but I thought it wouldn't look good ~ I was wrong! It looks great

This is my favorite picture of Dan, hands down.

MP's head looks fantastic. I like the psychedelic interior. I have a real soft spot for those glazes after all the glaze research I did recently. And I'm going to assume the mouthless head will end up with Dan. It reminds me of the cutouts that have been done by Gecko, Cass, and others. The cutout mouths really make for interesting mugs. You'll get a good view of the glaze through the mouth, so I'm looking forward to seeing what you do for that glaze.

Your in progress reports really show just how much time, effort, and skill go into ceramics, something that may be lost on the uninitiated.

Those heads are looking so good - tapa snake, finger tongue, sewed up mouth, and that interior glaze. Also thanks to Dawee for asking a question I've been meaning to for a while. Of course, the answer's even better!

Wendy, The Black Severed Head looks amazing! As does everything else, of
course. Thanks so much for taking a special request. MP

tikilongbeach I think I saw that cartoon too.

MadDogMike I'm glad you liked it. MP and I did too.

Hale Tiki Dan was flattered that you liked his photo. He tries really hard to look crazy, well not too hard.
The way it works is if it doesn't have a name attached to it someone can ask about buying it. Or I post it for sale. If it doesn't sell here I ask Dan if he wants to buy it or do a task to own it. I keep him busy and he adds to his collection. So far no takers for those altered severed heads but glazing will make a difference to someone looking.

Each day my tasks are towards a specific goal. What can I do so that I can fire up the kiln with a load as full as possible.

Holler Waller on this thread I repeat myself many times. I do that so that people who are just starting to watch and do not want to look at all my other pages get their answers. Always ask and I'll do my best to help out.

mp you are welcome. Who knows maybe you will make the trip here to pick it up rather than have it mailed. No date yet on when you can have it. I have 30 heads of the run to finish.

hang10tiki it's fun to fool around with these. If a person were to drink from that open mouth it would look like the old version of CPR.

It is still Dan's birthday month so I took him record shopping. At The Beat in downtown Sacramento we found a section for our perfect kind of music. He found a Martin Denny record that he had never seen before.

A few days before I gave him one that I'd gotten from Amazon. This Martin Denny recorded in 1969 is with synthesizers and Dan said it sounds like he was on acid.



Progress Report Wish List #3

I called and talked to the kiln repair guy. He told me how to replace the thermal couple. I had one stored in my shed. He said that's what the error message indicated when I last used the kiln. This is it the guilty piece.


Dan opened the box for me.


I found the back end of the TC (same initials as Tiki Central!) and unscrewed it.


He unscrewed the damaged TC.


We replaced it with a new one.


Back in place. Now its time to test it with a load.


The bottom shelf has 19TikiChef62's bowl. The metal glaze fires at 04 so it goes into this bisque load. Then I will glaze and fire the girls later.


Top shelf are the altered severed heads.


Not a full load but good enough since it is also a test to see if we have repaired the kiln.

March 20th is the first day of spring but I swear it's here early.


I wish you a day full of joy, Wendy

Wendy,

I am really looking forward to seeing the metalic finish after it comes out of the kiln! (I'm sure you are too.)

Like Lori, I'm excited to see the metallic finish. I've seen Amaco's Palladium fire very metallic-looking, from what I've heard location in the kiln will bring out more metallic qualities (middle shelf)- though it sounds like you're using a different glaze. Love all the new pieces- and dig the black severed head, too. And would like to hear both of those Martin Denny albums- when can we start streaming music through TC?

hang10tiki Dan is still looking for the Augie Colon album Sophisticated Savage. There is another album by this name out there but he wants it by this guy who was in the Les Baxter band. Anyone have it for sale?

LoriLovesTiki I was behind on posting photos so today you will see the finish and its better than I could have hoped for.

TikiAno Dan doesn't just collect tikis. He was first a album collector. Now he also collects components from thrift stores. He has set up five areas of stereos to play his music. Wherever he is there is music.

WaikikianMoeKele you type really cUtE!


pRogReSs rEpoRt Wish List #3

The metal glaze works really well. Fired at 04 on the bottom level. Slow ramp 12.5 hours.

In the kiln after firing. That's not a hole in the bottom just a reflection.


Out of the kiln. You can see my reflection in this finish. Next I'll glaze the women.


In the same load were the four altered severed heads. None blew up they are all fine and ready to be glazed.


On the shelf are my temperature cones. I had one for 03 04 05. They show me that since we replaced the thermal couple the kiln is firing hotter than what I set it for. They all melted, 03 bent the amount the cooler 04 should have bent. So now I'll have to adjust for that.


Cheers, Wendy

Hello Wendy!

I've been lurking in this thread for some time, drooling over what you create with all of your talent! I so love the altered severed heads, especially the shrunken head and Mr. Snake Mouth! Thank you for sharing with all of us!

I looked online, and are either of these the album you and Dan are looking for? Neither is mine, but I thought I'd at least post the links so you could check them out:

By the way, the metallic glaze on the bowl is so fantastic! Thanks again for sharing your pictures!

DooWop thank you very much. I went on eBay and did the Buy it Now. Shipping was free. It's good to meet you. I appreciate the help. I had a search going and eBay never sent me a notice. I would have missed this. (: Wendy


PS Dan is reading a book right now and the title is Doo Wop!

The metalic finish is amazing! Like a mirror, that finish!! Can't wait to see it all finished after you glaze the wahines.
