The severed heads are looking fantastic!
I think I like your glaze choices better than the original.

Another great episode of the Dan-O and Wendy show.
I like the print on the Apron, we need a pic of Wendy all wrapped in it.
The SH mugs look great, I can't wait to get my hands on mine!

Love all the cool pics

Thanks for letting us all tag along for the ride

Jon

Dan is granted the most interesting mug in the world!!!

Looks like you had a good time! I should go check out that Egyptian stuff sometime. Seems like a fun place.

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.




That's one very SCARY & BLOODY tiki factory! muhhhhhhaaahhhhh!
They are absolutely beautiful!

Thanks for sharing your trip pics. I really like the pattern of that apron. I love Ancient Egyptian stuff about as much as I love Poly pop, those buildings are fantastic! I wonder if they are remnants from a worlds fair or expo? Seem pretty intricate and expensive just for a society to have built.

Look at all those severed heads! Better not let the cops see all that evidence.

Wendy, love the kitchen table filled w/ severed heads (not something I ever expected to write, but still....). Would it be wrong to use them as a tea set?

Trip looks like fun, glad Dan got some waves, too:

LoriLovesTiki we actually watch too much TV in the evenings. We thought that Monday's episode of Hawaii 5-0 was the best one they have ever done. Wo Fat is toast.

Philot thank you, the glaze colors match the original I just put them on less messy.

Hale Tiki I wish I knew what that meant, you young people have a whole different vocabulary.

hang10tiki I'm so happy to take you all along with us. You all make everything fun.

lunavideogames love the photoshop thank you. I'm very happy it was one of my mugs. This is a wonderful museum with mummies and a tomb to tour. We were sad to have it be closed when we got there. It's well worth a visit.

hang10tiki, GROG and luavideogames you really spice up the show.

WaikikianMoeKele the colors were a weird choice for a tiki bar but they make the heads really pop. I'm glad we never watched Dexter or they might gross me out.

Professor G if I had more employees but Dan's as good as 2 or 3.

tigertail777 I believe this is one of their headquarters. Benjamin Franklin belonged to this society. The museum is outstanding. We bought many of our Egyptian decorations for our bedroom in their gift shop. They give workshops and astronomy shows too.

TikiAno a dream come true for Dan. We once surfed in San Diego with my cousin. I got stung by a jelly fish but we had a fun time and did catch a few waves. Dan loves both your photos.


Progress Report:

I got out all the glazes it takes for the heads and made a pallet.


I did more than the glaze skips on each head. I decided to make them even better.


On our trip Dan found one tiki mug. It was only $7 and it was from Trader Vic's. This mug has a lot of chips on it but over all they did a horrible job on them. The glazes were full of popped bubbles and the tiki is rough. But maybe that adds character. I've always wanted to see if I could re-glaze a damaged vintage mug. So I picked out the colors.


I had Dan sand all the chips.


I painted the glaze on, 3 layers.


The heads and mug were put in the sun to dry.


Bottom shelf of the kiln.


I loaded the top shelf with the vintage mug far away from my good heads. I worry that it could come apart and I didn't want pieces to stick to my projects.


The kiln will open on Thursday. I won't re-glaze more heads until I see how these turned out. Meanwhile I'll work on the
Sacramento Crawl mug. Here's an update.

I counted 9 fingers on the wooden tiki so that's what the mug has here.

Notice how photos help. I can see the shape is different. I can redo this or say, "well the mug doesn't have to be a perfect match." Not sure if I'll change it.

Thank you for the visit, Wendy

Look at Dan-O hanging 5 (toes off the tip of the board)...



Jon

Good luck with the mug repair...

Wendy, look forward to seeing more- and I'm (also) very curious what happens to the re-glazed production mug.

Jon, I was about to mention Dan grabbing 5, I know there's not a lot of surf where you are. Maybe a big surf outing during Oasis this year? (Though that is prime stingray season down here). I can bring down a bunch of boards.

I don't think I've ever seen so much painted detail using glazes before.

Byoo-tiful.

hang10tiki Dan likes the new look. I think its time we add exercise to our daytime activities.

TikiAno I'll open the kiln today. I hope I didn't destroy the mug. Once we hit Oasis we just stay in place so we don't miss anything. Surfboards would kill us. But thanks for the offer you young stud.

Robb Hamel I spend a lot of time trying to make each piece a keeper. Your work shows that same dedication. I was on your thread this morning just marveling at your expertise. I love your work.

Thank you everyone for the visits.

Progress Report:

A big box arrived from Gecko'z South Sea Arts. Nope, no Gecko tikis it just held some of my things.


I had him cast two of my Missionary's Downfall bowls. They have a 50% cracking rate in the kiln and I need to make one for Psycho Tiki D. He already has the woman but has been waiting for 2 years for the bowl.

Neither Gecko nor I noticed that I'd left the second I out of Missionary's so after the cast I had him wipe out the first part of the word. I'll carve it in properly before I start firing this bowl.


He had one of the Missionary Downfall woman molds that he could part with so I bought that too. Since I can alter the woman I want to keep a crisp mold and my other one is getting old.



The Sacramento Crawl Mug

I started on the headdress. Each section is carved like a gemstone.


Again I love to use my label scraper.


I added clay to build up the top of the head.


Smoothed out the shape is starting to show.



When a sculpt is going to be molded I have to watch for undercuts which will break the mold. So here I added a small amount of clay at the base of the hands.


Now there is a slope and the mold will pull off.


Now its time to get busy. Cheers, Wendy
