Wendy ... It is such a pleasure to follow your thread. Your work is so imaginative. I envy you for seeing a newly opened kiln after a fire. I remember that feeling of wonder and excitement doing that. Your work is so inspiring ... Gene

hang10tiki I love showing the steps. I checked in and saw you skinned a tree trunk for carving in your backyard. Terrific.
Gene S. Morgan I have fun watching your thread too.

Progress Report on the Sacramento Crawl mug.

The sculpt is not finished but I took these photos so I could look for errors so far.









I could see that the nose stood out too far so I cut off part of it.

I use stiff brushes to smooth bumps.

I held it so you can see the sculpts size.


Anyone can sign up for one of these mugs even if you don't attend the crawl. The list so far is on page one of this thread.

Thank you for the visit. I'm off to a Pacific Rim Sale at the Cancer Society store. I'll show the loot tomorrow.

Cheers, Wendy

The mug is coming along nicely. Good job. I know that you said that it was big but I didn't know just how big it was until you posted the picture of you holding it. Awesome. It makes me wonder what the biggest mug out there is.

Dang Wendy that thing is humongous for a mug! You're starting to approach totem pole size. Now don't leave us hanging... I gotta know on the Wendy and Dan Show what happened to the vintage mug you re-glazed and re-fired. Seriously curious if that is possible to do.

Mug is looking awesome! That is one of those mugs you take in a bar and tell them "I only have time for one drink. Fill it up!" HAHA

I am so lucky to have you all making this fun for me. Thank you for your messages. I'd rather read these than the morning news paper.


tikilongbeach there's room for lots of ice for a hot day.

MadDogMike glazing is the fun part. I'm thinking all kinds of things from traditional to outrageous. Maybe I'll glaze a few and take a vote. Too bad that's still a long way off.

GROG maybe its a share a drink mug with long straws.

Philot I admit that I like that butt which is modeled after Dan. Fluffy/Sherry likes to watch the work in my hobby room. She does seem to be staring at it.

LoriLovesTiki I wish all Hawaii 5-0 episodes were that good.

WaikikianMoeKele and ha ha.

lunavideogames you should start a thread, such as what's you biggest mug, on collecting tiki and when this one is done you can add a photo of mine.

tigertail777 your wish is fulfilled today.

littlegiles I think I'll have to measure the amount that it holds in the future.


Progress Report:

I've become obsessed with making these heads as perfect as possible. So I spent another day glazing them. After they dried in the backyard they went back into the kiln.

I have one more load and all 22 will have been glazed at least twice maybe three times. My electric bill is through the roof. This is the load from the day before.

Top layer held the Trader Vic's mug that I repaired.

It worked. The colors were perfect and it fixed all the chips.

Someday I'll experiment to see if I can repair a hairline in a vintage mug. But it worked for chips.




Then it was time to take Dan to see his surgeon. He has re-torn the meniscus in his knee. Today we are trying cortisone.
look how long the needle is before it goes in.


If this doesn't help with the pain then Dan will have another surgery.

We love Dr. Hong. He's done knee repairs for Dan and I so we know him well.


Take care of your knees, cheers, Wendy

Well, thankfully it was just in his right knee and not in his wee knee, because that would have been really painful.

OMG Grog, you are one Crazy Caveman
I'm in the yard carving, and thought I'd check in on the show.
Now I have to change my shirt, I spit my diet coke all over, thanks...

Wendy, I like the new GIANT crawl mug, can you sign me up for one?
Even though I can't make the crawl. I'm sure after 1 drink in it, I'll be crawling...
I'm glad the repair mug job worked.
Next time I find a chipped mug I will not have to pass on it.
Ill just send it to you for a speedy repair.
That could be another side to your business.

Dan-O
Get well soon my friend...

Jon

First off, I hope Dan's knee feels better soon. Hopefully the cortisone will work and he won't need another surgery.

congrats on fixing that mug. Great experiment and now you know that you can fix chips.


Dale
