GROG more than a quart for sure!

VampiressRN it is. He needs to be impressive for our group.

Badd Tiki that's a photo of Roge the chunk lamp inventor.

The Blue Kahuna excellent.

Big Kahuna look at that the two Kahuna's together. What are the chances of that?

hang10tiki you and GROG are right.

LoriLovesTiki he is cute to me too.


Progress Report



Dan put together all the boxes for shipping the Severed Heads. I have to go over each one to see if some need touch ups and re-glazing. I'll contact you if yours is ready later this week.



Back to carving the Sacramento Crawl Mug for October 2013.
I use the V tool first and then widen the groove with the wooden tool.


Then I cut off the displaced clay with the label remover.


Looks pretty smooth.


Then more carving.


Done with those.


One more line finished.


Done for now.

I hope you are having a sunny day. Cheers, Wendy

Wendy- it seems as if your severed head mugs
have been using your kiln while you guys were sleeping...

Thanks for the update Wendy, even the burlesque picture of Dan. HAHA So, do the little foam packing peanuts stay on him because of static or do you have to glue each one individually? Just curious.

Love the pics of you carving on the new mug. I guess because I have never worked with clay I never realized just how hard it is to carve. Love watching it progress. I know all my soil here in SC is really hard red clay and trying to dig a hole takes acts of congress and machinery.

Can't wait to see more!


Dale

Kele you have inspired the men to photoshop.

MadDogMike you are such a sweet guy. I'm having fun doing this tiki.

GROG I'm whispering the answer right now!

Professor G and his birthday suit.

hang10tiki thank you.

hang10tiki love it, love him, you too. Dan laughed so much you'd think there were 22 of him.

littlegiles clinging by static electricity. Frankoma Pottery used the red clay of Sapulpa OK.


Hale Tiki Dan said he resembles that remark.

GROG how can I thank you? That picture made Dan very happy. I think we'll have to print yours and hang10tikis latest two and hang them in the man cave.

Progress Report. We left yesterday morning for an over night trip. We just got home and I'll not post photos until tomorrow morning.

Thank you everyone. It's always great to come home and have my life (and Dan's) touched by each of you who writes and looks.

Cheers, Wendy

I'm never going to have a photo of Dan as good as those. We took two days off and went to Capitola, Santa Cruz and San Jose.
We were tiki hunting as well as having some fun food. Here's our trip.

At the Beach at Capitola.

I found a tiki tile.

On Sunday's the Ukulele Club of Santa Cruz plays and the show was outstanding. They sang too.

Right behind the grandstand was this tiki.


Then we took off for Santa Cruz and went to Happy Hour at Hula's.

We had a fun food dinner.


Next we drove to the beach to watch the surfers.


Back on main street we went to Mr. Goodies and checked out the tikis for sale.


Monday we left and went to San Jose to the Rosicrucian Center. It was closed but we walked the grounds.








Dan figured out the guy wanted tiki mugs but Dan showed him he didn't have any.








We stopped in Livermore and at the Blue Door I found a home-made apron.
This is Tom the owner.


Home and back to work.

Progress Report:

While Dan carried in our suitcases I unloaded the kiln.

More heads out of the oven.


One spec of dust and the glaze crawls away from it. Here in on the chin

and here in the hair.


I went over each head and decided that each one could benefit from a touch up. So I'm going to glaze each one in some spot or another and fire them once more before we use those boxes. Our home always looks like a tiki factory.


So one more week before we are ready to start shipping these out. Nothing is easy but its all worth the work to get it right.

Cheers, Wendy
