Today I saw something that reminded me of Dan-Os collection

An Army of 5 in an antique store
In Vancouver Washington

hang10tiki I'm pleased that you valued the Wendy/Gecko work enough to bid so high. I know he'll be super happy with all the money from the last bid. I wish we were shopping and had those Tiki Bobs those are one of the hardest to find peanut mugs. We have one each of two versions.

Wish List #3 Progress Report

I have the run of 30 Severed Heads to finish and the 19TikiChef62 pot to paint with enamel. Here's yesterday.

I loaded the bottom shelf of the kiln. One mug that will be a gift had to be hidden.


Top shelf loaded and another mug was loaded after. When these have been given then I'll share the photos. I fired up the kiln.


I carried 30 heads to the nook where I glaze.


I glazed only the bottoms of each one leaving a space for the numbers. This is a run of 30.


Three hours later I finished the first layer and left them to dry.



My sister lives in Oregon where you can buy the Powerball lottery. She and I went in on $40 worth of lines. I told Dan if we hit it she'll call. If she doesn't call then it was a bust. We planned to split the winnings. Well she just called while I'm typing here. First she said we got the Powerball number 31!...and

one other number.
WE WON $4 to split. Yippee!

So I need to make more tikis, back to work, cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki and another...

Holler Waller oh well it was fun to get the 31. The heads are marching along.


Progress Report Severed Heads

Another day another step completed. The steps were these. Use a spray bottle to moisten the inside of the mug so that the capillary action will pull the glaze tighter to the clay. Pour in a hefty amount of glaze. Cover all the interior surface. Pour out the excess then put the head in a plastic container upside down to let the drips stop. See two lined up in this photo.

Take one out and clean up the outside of the head.


Take more glaze on a brush and coat the inner rim three times.


At the end of the day I had all 30 finished.


I'm up early to take a friend to the hospital for a pacemaker upgrade. I'll get back to work when I'm home this afternoon. Dan is taking my car in to get it smogged which seems like another medical procedure. I get to open the kiln and remove the tikis, my favorite surgery!

May you have a healthy day a beating heart and clean air to breath. Cheers, Wendy

I'm so excited about the heads! They're going to look great. I'll be curious to see how you tweaked them for the final glaze. =)

littlegiles I love posting progress photos for everyone to comment on. The ghost faces you have pointed out are creepy while the severed heads are all sweetness and nice.

WaikikianMoeKele littlegiles has started something.

Big Kahuna the one with the scariest ghost face!

hang10tiki I was hoping someone would find the ghost face he was referring too. Thank you. Yep, the Wendy/Gecko mug has surfaced but the auction is all his.

Hale Tiki the glazes were perfect the first time around. I have blended the hair a bit more.

dartharnie we are all on the planet at the same time and we know so many of the same things. Somehow we all were infected with tikis.

Dan's been working in his garage man cave. He now has 3 of the stereo systems working. I keep taking him away from his project to work on mine. Poor Guy but as you know he works for tikis.




Progress Report Wish List #3

Count Bobula is finished. The glaze stuck this time. Dan is packing up the monster trio to ship. He had to go buy a bag of peanuts. Double boxing too.



Pac Man didn't go so well. I will try it again. I'm determined to make it work. Pretty soon all the glaze will have been replaced.

Tapa Snake, AP for the run, and Bug Eyed version.


I'm adding some enamel to the chords stitching the eyes and mouth closed on the shrunken head then I'll revel it tomorrow.

I'm loving all the fun comments.

WE WILL BE AT THE DON THE BEACHCOMBER'S SALE ON APRIL 6TH. IF YOU HAVE ORDERED A SEVERED HEAD AND WANT ME TO BRING IT TO THE SALE LET ME KNOW. I'M TRYING TO FINISH ENOUGH OF THEM TO DO THIS DELIVERY.

Back to work, cheers, Wendy

Love a festive kiln opening! The heads look great and the one with the snake is fantastic. Wish I could have hopped in on this run. Maybe one day in the future. Glad the Count finally cooperated and I'm sure if anyone can whip the pacMan into submission it is you! Woohoo!

Dale

I'm torn... those severed heads are beautiful, but also danged creepy. I do like the one with the snake, kinda makes it a little less grotesque somehow...I think. Count Bobula turned out awesome! It's odd that you are having such a difficult time with Mrs Pacman... is the glaze too old to use maybe? My experience with the art of kilning is limited, but I think I seem to recall that some types of glazes can become outdated and not fire right as a result. Regardless, I am sure you will make it completely jaw dropping in the final version.
