Wendy, THAT is a lot of tiki. Curious how heavy they will be once they're all dry. They look great, excited to see the next steps.... and more Bobs! Great seeing the slip cast molds next to each other to show the shrinkage- very cool. Are you and Dan heading down to the Tiki Marketplace at Don's in June? As of now (work-wise) I plan on heading up there....

VampiressRN thank you so much. We look forward to the crawl each year and to making the mug. I hope everyone is happy that I've chosen the Coral Reef tiki. Thank you for running the crawl and arraigning a terrific schedule as you did last year.

hang10tiki that made me think of the Chorus Line.

TikiAno we love to go to Marketplace but we have family that weekend. Here come the Bob's. I started with a weight and height and when that mug is completely dry I'll weigh and measure it again for comparison.


Progress Report

This time around I decided to skip the white faces of the Bob's and to do them in colors that go with the body colors. Here's the first five of the eight Bob's.

Peanut PNG inside

and out. Yep his eyes and mouth are white.


Lightning Bob. I did some of the strikes in orange and red

and blended them in with yellow.

Same on the backside.




Bob Woody all in red brown.


Underwater Bob is all streaky blue green. I like to shake up the glaze that has chunks and pour it into a shot glass. That way I can reach the chunks that sink. I get them placed all over the mug.






Rum Barrel Bob also has a brown face. His bands will be metal.





I hope you are OK with Bob's face being yellow and brown and other colors. He was ready for a change. More tomorrow.

Cheers, Wendy

I'm excited to see how these Bob's turn out.

It still amazes me that some of those glazes look so horrid before firing yet turn so beautiful. That Underwater Bob is a good example. Poor thing looks awful sitting there covered in chunky bits of poo colored glaze, but I know he will be lovely after a good trip through the kiln.

Chippy guess what now I'm going to make a Deputy Sheriff - Detective mug for our best friend who has had a rough time health wise. He just sent me his badge. His number (he retired) was 999 and when asked to show it by criminals he flipped it around to read 666. He said they would get really quiet.

hang10tiki I hope so, could be that without a white face no one recognizes Bob, ya think?

littlegiles dark red turning to green is always a surprise for me. I've started to learn what you should and should not use on a mug with detail or add-ons.


Progress on the last of the Bob's


I wanted Mrs. Tiki Bob to be cute so I changed her eyes, nose and mouth.


After painting her completely I scrapped off the glaze on her eyes and mouth.


I then added under-glaze to these areas.


Her best side.


Clam-Up Bob was just a wild fun mug to make.


He was inspired by a shell I bought in the 1960's in San Francisco.


I also added seaweed


and a seahorse.


He's got clams!


Ukulele Bob had lots of hidden spots so I ran glaze down behind the Ukulele on purpose.


After he was all painted I scrapped off glaze on the instrument so I could add a different color.


I couple of flowers and he's all done.


I put them out back to dry.


I hope you are all off playing. Dan and I celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary today. He is taking me to a surprise lunch to celebrate. I have a few tikis for him so it will be a fun day.

Cheers, Wendy

Happy Anniversary, Wendy & Dan!

Wendy, you are clearly the world's premier maker of artisan Bobs... I never realized how many outstanding and beautiful mug designs could arise from a Bob!
