hang10tiki sweet? Yes I think Chippy's sweet. You are too!

MadDogMike we had fun taking you there. You need to come back for another visit.

WaikikianMoeKele its fun to see Chippy get this attention.

lunavideogames I'm pretty sure we are coming. We need to set up the house sitter first. I'll bring Mrs. Pac Man. More photos below on the bowl.

TikiAno we'll miss you at Marketplace for sure. The lamps/actually a torch are a challenge for we who are inexperienced at buying parts. We'll make a good go of it. Chippy himself is awesome.

Chippy thank you. Who drew this picture? All I did was copy his inspiration and he should get the credit.


Big Kahuna that works for me!



If I've made or are making something for you including the run of Severed Heads let me know if you are coming to the April 6th sale at Don the Beachcombers.




Progress Report Wish List #3

19TikiChef62 here is the lesson of the day concerning the mixing of glazes with different firing temperatures. The metal glaze is made to fire at 04. So the first time in the kiln I did that and it came out very shiny. Then I glazed the women who had to fire at 06 which is cooler. This temperature took the metal glaze and made it pewter rather than shiny. I like it better I hope you do.



Where the woman attached to the pot came out really well.








This bowl is far from complete. I will be doing designs on the skirt, tattoos on the bodies, a ring around the band on the pot and faces on the women.



Mr. Pac Man will not co-operate and is driving me crazy with small areas of glaze popping off. I had Dan dremmel, sand and wire brush him one last time.


Then I glazed him again. I'm trying this many times (4) because I have space in the kiln. The Mrs. Pac Men were no trouble at all.



The kiln is still not working right so the repair man is due here in an hour. I'll go glaze while I wait for him.

Cheers, Wendy


tikilongbeach I just saw you posted when I did. I like those ice cubes...take note Chippy!

I know Dan liked the Invisible Man mug a lot, but dressing up as him might be a bit much? (I'm not the only one who saw this resemblance, am I?)

hang10tiki I'm not expecting Mr. Pac Man to behave but I'm working with him.
Soon I'll be fine tuning the ladies and then I'll hope for even more Hubba Hubba's.
Ps-tomorrow ill have a Mai-Tai for ya for good luck with the kiln....

TikiAno I love to hear and see my man laugh. We both loved the comparison photo. I have started a Photo-Shopped File and I've moved some of hang10tikis creations there with yours. I need to search out those from Grog to add.

Atomic Tiki Punk thank you. I think we'll be seeing you soon at DTB's


Clayton came to fix the kiln. It's always fun to see him. We just added another shelf for glaze right behind him and it made it a tight squeeze.


Our living room furniture is covered to protect it from our cats claws. There are the 30 severed heads waiting to be glazed.
The two big cabinets we got at the Discovery Shop (Cancer Society). We go there several times a week. These two were only $50 each.


Yesterday Dan drilled a bunch of holes in the back of each cabinet.


In his garage man cave he had lots of speakers and components stacked up. He collects old stereo equipment from the same shop and has fun mixing music.


He boxed up tikis and moved all these things.


All Clear.


He got one in place and then called it a day.




Progress Report Wish List #3.

I try but after a few days of glazing my table ends up looking like this.


I painted the Shrunken Severed head with black paint.


Then after it dried I scrubbed it off.


I let him dry.



Then I painted him to look like the Ren Clark Severed Head only shrunken.

I did change the blood to dried blood which is brown. The hair will be the same as the fresher head.



Thank you all for stopping by and keeping my thread alive, unlike the heads! Cheers, Wendy

Dried Blood...I love the dark turns these severed heads keep taking.

The pewter Hubba Hubba x3 looks really cool, but I have a question.

If you had glazed the girls first with the 6 cone, then the bowl with the 4...what would have happened? Would that have kept the bowl shiny or destroyed the women?

Count Bobula really is a pain in the neck, isn't he ;P

dartharnie ha ha, Count Bobula has been a pain in the neck but he's worth it. I don't know if the glaze would burn at a higher temperature. It might melt more and all run off. The girls bisque fired on that higher heat so they would be OK I just don't know about the glaze. I need to experiment. It was fun thinking about the blood being dried and darker for the shrunken head. Thank you for thinking about all of these twists.

Hale Tiki he never wants to run out of equipment to play his records on. So if it costs $20 or under and looks good he buys it.

hang10tiki its been 16 years of, Will Work For Tikis, for Dan

MadDogMike please do and bring Teresa.



Progress Report Wish List #3

My whole idea for these recent severed heads it to maintain the Ren Clark head but just to add a twist. Here's the last one for now. In the future I'll do special versions as ordered on the next Wish List.

Tapa Snake.















All done and drying. I hope to fire up the kiln tonight.

I am so grateful for your visits and comments. I come here first thing in the morning because it gives me a boost to work hard the rest of the day. Thank you, Wendy

There's still a problem with the kiln, the thermocouple replacement did not resolve the issue?

Cheers !!!

Thank you Loki Tiki!!!

It was the thermalcouple. When we did the replacement there was a screw that was stripped. We couldn't tighten it well enough. With this last repair Clayton replaced the whole white block that held the thermalcouple. He said there is a lot of stress on the screws as the kiln heats and that's what strips them. It should be fine when I fire tonight.

Everything in my hand has now been replaced.


Cheers, Wendy
