LoriLovesTiki you are my only message today, thank you. I'm working on those ladies. I hope to fire this weekend. This is a good one do do with mixing glazes because the women also get a lot of enamel paint and I can then fix attachment messes if they occur.

I went back to Alpha Fired Arts and bought more glaze for the 30 severed heads now that the colors have been finalized. I also found these new colors so I did the glaze tests for them.


Liddle Lola/Darilyn came by to pick up her bar sign. She was in the perfect matching colors to make a great photo.





Progress Report Wish List #3

Sometimes there is a mug that just won't work. This one is for Atomic Chick. All the Mrs. Pac Man's came out just fine but Mr. Pac Man wants to shed his glaze. I used enamel to fix a couple of these areas but then more popped off. So I needed to try a major fix for the 3rd time. First I boiled off the enamel paint.


I wore a silicon glove to hold the super hot mug while I scrubbed off the paint.


Then Dan took it outside and used a wire brush on the whole mug and then rough sandpaper. Hopefully there are no more spots to worry about.


I spent a good part of the day doing all the layering of the colored glazes back on the mug and then this clear.


The rest of the day I worked on the bowl for 19TikiChef62. I put three layers of flesh on the women's bodies and skirt areas.



I filled up the entire bottom of the kiln. Now I need to finish this bowl for the top layer.


Another day of glazing and spending the time with my sweetheart Dan.

Cheers, Wendy

This is the best thread of tc!

Your speed amazes me. Can't wait to see the wahine vessel when it's finished!

Edited to add: I can't believe it's going in the next load. I thought it would be a while until it was done being glazed.

Wendy -

You are the hardest working ceramic artist I know! The pac-man mug is a GREAT concept - I hope you are able to overcome the technical hiccups!

Henrik

PS - do you stilt all your mugs when firing? I used to, but was lost too many mugs to bent/failed pins during firing. Does that ever happen to you? I often wondered if my mugs were either too big, or the pins I had in the studio were low quality.

zerostreet on your thread too, thank you. I'm always checking out your mugs and paintings.

LoriLovesTiki I don't think of myself as fast. I wish I could find a faster way. I'm only working on the bowl for 19TikiChef62 and that's why it is progressing towards the kiln faster than expected. Once it's done I can fire so I'm starting early this morning to see if I can finish it up.

VanTiki
Hi Henrik, you are on the Big Island of Hawaii and I saw your guest house rental web page. Very nice. I have never lost a mug from stilts collapsing but I've lost stilts when too much glaze ran down onto them. I love keeping my glazes close to the bottom or covering the bottoms so I have to stilt and kiln wash the shelves. See you at Oasis?


WaikikianMoeKele I liked the way that sounded and you picked up on that, good job.

hang10tiki Dan's really happy when he finds a good cover and it's even better when the music is great. What a fun monster cover. Dan just watched the movie Creature of the Black Lagoon yesterday and then you post this album cover that says monster voices. He said in the whole movie the creature only growled. dartharnie would like this album.

Progress on Wish List #3 is only for 19TikiChef62's pot.

I now have 4 layers of glaze on the bodies and one on the hair. Here are a few views.






So today I hope to finish this, have it dry, and fire tonight. Hopefully that will happen. Wish me luck, Wendy

hang10tiki no kidding. One day I'll do a bowl with a breast reduction instead of moving the arms around.

LoriLovesTiki thank you and Kele, my fingers are crossed.

Progress Report Wish List #3

I put the bowl on the top shelf all by itself and fired up the kiln last night. I will open it tomorrow.

Before 19TikiChef62's bowl went into the kiln I glazed all the skirts and flowers in three different colors.


Scuba Bob has been waiting for Marone Tiki to come pick him up. During this wait Dan would gaze at Bob with longing.


When Marone Tiki arrived he had to rip Bob from Dan's hands.


We had a fun visit and Monty didn't ever set Scuba Bob down! Cheers, Wendy

Dan should have challenged Marone Tiki to some Indian Rasslin'. His ceramic bionic knee would have given him the edge.
