Chippy I just saw the photo of Chippy and Mrs.PacMan on facebook. Are you friends with lunarvideogames? It's always good to get back home. We miss our cat when we are away.

hang10tiki he did really well with the Moai. Now I need to save up for one more chunk lamp with this cast.

lunavideogames once in Hawaii I wrapped a Kon Tiki mug for Dan. It rolled and broke in the trunk. Ever since he does his own packing and does a good job. HB Tiki gave him a divider box too. All the mugs made it here and they have been worked into the collection. He loves tiki arranging.

I enjoying watching new sales of my art so keep letting me know if you see something come up. Moai Mike is a sweetheart. I'm never upset when something goes. We have a few friends mugs that Dan plans to sell soon.

I like seeing my mugs used at parties and events. Matt the Cat is picking up his look a like mug today. I better get a photo.

littlegiles Dale, thank you. I have no photos of the back of the tiki. I think I need to add a rear end so that the back isn't boring. I know the women like it when I do this.

VampiressRN I'll like to see it hung too. It's been a blast working with Roge. We enjoy being in a show and then reading our reviews. I'm a ham, well Dan is too. We are a well matched set.


Progress Report:

It was time to really get going on the severed heads. So we hauled them out to the side yard again.


At this point they each have one thick layer of glaze which was not enough.


Dan would put one on the wheel for me and I would spray it and then he'd swap it out.


I use may hand to block the glaze from entering the mug which has a glaze already coating it.



I'm showing Dan waiting for the next task.


We did each head three more times with them drying in the wind between.


Dan cleaned up.


I hauled them to the table by the back door and then back into the house. Drying glaze doesn't have an odor. See all the trays. We buy them whenever we see them in thrift stores. Having a bunch sure helps us out.


Now its back to work. Cheers, Wendy

Wendy, I love the back to back Moai showdown. I have one of the older resin Moai, love the new one you've created- may have to order a few. I'm excited to see more progress on the Sac Crawl mug- thanks once again for the step by steps....

Sorry I missed you guys (and everyone else) at Don's, looks like another great event. I, along w/ everyone else, was entertained by Jon's nonstop Photoshopping. Jon, I recommend switching to decaf. Just sayin'.

I was going to say the same thing. I don't remember seeing them before in pictures. Are those new additions to the humble abode?

All that glaze being applied can only mean one thing. Soon we will have another grand opening of the kiln so we can sit back and oooo and ahhhhh.

Dale

That's some serious mass production! I appreciate the view of your nice yard, it's good to see the setting people do their creative stuff in.

Well look what came in the mail today...
Amazing Bob
Wow, this Bob rocks, I wonder how many Mai-Tais it takes to fail the maze game
You two sure are great friends and I can't wait to see you (soon)...

Thanks again,
Jon

TikiAno we missed you at Don's. It was a great event. hang10tikis taking a vacation from photo-shopping after an exhausting few days. He sure put on a fun show.

lunavideogames I like bringing people together through my art. Thank you.

hang10tiki one big step at a time on the heads. Those guys are guarding our yard.

littlegiles nope those guys have been here and there for years. Dan moves all his tikis often so they show up in new places. I rarely work with deadlines because there is a method to my madness. The glazing has stopped while I work to make some new items so I can fill the kiln for a bisque load. I do need a batch of the heads finished for Caliente but bisque first.

Robb Hamel I purposely showed the yard because Dan had just mowed and edged it. Thanks for mentioning it. I like seeing your workspace too. I just went to your web page to ogle all the fine art. I enjoy doing this often.
www.robbhamel.com

hang10tiki I'm so glad your photo-shopping reward arrived safely. You didn't say if you got through the maze on the first try, did Janelle try it? See you both soon.

Matt the Cat came to pick up his "look alike mug".








Progress Report:

I caught Dan doing a Justin Beiber with his pants as he tiki arranges.


Here's his finished work.


I went to alpha to pick up more glaze for the severed heads. Those heads require a lot of glaze in 6 colors. While I was there I bought 4 new glazes. When I got home I saw I was running out of bisque fired glaze strips. I do a test of each new glaze. I need more things to fire so I made some for now and for the future.



The folded up edge gives me a place to write the number that I can see when they are hanging on the wall.


I need to make some more things for the bisque load so its off to the garage. Cheers, Wendy

Jon, I love those pieces in Wendy and Dan's yard, too- especially the skinny Moai! (Wendy, who made them?) I love the aMAZEing Bob, that's a great gift- enjoy!

Wendy, please tell Dan that I'm continually impressed with the Tiki-takeover of the Cevola homestead- looks great!

The Wendy & Dan show is always entertaining! Thanks for keeping us all smiling.

I too love the tikis in the backyard. Do tell us their story.

TO ONE AND ALL WHO VOTED FOR US, THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH, I JUST SAW WE ARE COOL AND CURRENT. THAT MADE MY DAY, WENDY

GROG me like u art.

VampiressRN GROG is a sweetie pie just like Matt. I really enjoyed seeing Matt and the mug together. Jon, I think you look better as is but it was fun to see you as Dan's twin. Marlene soon our Sacramento Ohana will grow by two in Elk Grove, how amazing is that?

TikiAno starting on the left. Around 8 years ago several styles were sold in the garden section at Long's drug store.
The one in the middle is from Hawaii and we got it in an antique store. The owner brought it home with him from a trip. I've seen another in a friends collection. We have had it around 10 years. The one on the right, we have two, was bought at an antique store 15 years ago and the owner said she was glad to sell them because she'd had them for twenty. Go Tiki has a mold for these and make terrific lamps. All three are concrete.

Dan wishes I'd give up the Asian living room and the Egyptian bedroom but I think his spread has gone far enough and now he needs to continue to fine tune it.

WaikikianMoeKele stay tuned for more episodes, no summer re-runs!

hang10tiki Dan's long lost brother...and you both grew up to love tiki.

LoriLovesTiki the one place we have that is not tiki enough is the backyard. I should tell Dan to work on that.


Progress Report:

Sacramento Crawl mug. I am taking orders and adding names to the list on page 1. The mug will be around 9 inches tall and have a 3 1/2 inch diameter. The sculpt right now is 4" x 10" but casts from the mold will shrink as they dry.

Copying from a photo is difficult. I rough it out and then I repair making it match.


I see that the arms are too narrow and I add clay.


The arms needed a huge wedge to work.


Then I see the belly wraps around under the elbows.


littlegiles and Kele like butts so one will be attached to this backside.


I smooth the added clay.


Checking from different angles helps too.


I checked the photo and found his shoulders were wider so more clay is added.


My hands are too tired to continue so its time to join Dan and to watch TV


The Butt and head will be the fun parts to sculpt.

Anyone want to confess to voting for us on Cool and Current? Hugs, Wendy
