AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! That looks like so much fun! And that's so cool that you got to meet him, and get a private show. I didn't know Dan wrote reviews/notes. I hope he publishes them online somewhere. I'm sure people would love to hear his thoughts. I know I would.

Looks like a great trip. Family and music and meeting a musical legend, pretty great stuff all around. We're all happy to have you back here on TC, of course.

littlegiles family visits are terrific but it is always good to get home.

LoriLovesTiki its good to hear from you and all my other tiki buddies.

Hale Tiki I read your note to Dan and he was flattered. Dan doesn't type so for now they are handwritten and stuck in the album. We really enjoyed the concert.

TikiAno thank you it is really nice to be back. I love posting and reading here.

hang10tiki its very nice to be home.

Dan found a fun place to hang out in the antique store.


Warning nudity. Here's our haul from 5 cities and all the antique stores we could find.




Progress Report:

We got home from Oregon and poured and opened #27 and #28



Then last night it was #29 and #30.


Every morning I'm faced with Dan's butts to clean up.


I get them looking this good.


So we have made if half way. 30 drying in the shed.


I have just about run out of counter space and need to start sanding and loading the kiln.


Cheers, Wendy

Love the travelogue. It's so much fun watching you two have fun.

This is what I thought of when I saw the "looking good" butt.

Haha, I love the title, "Lifting the loin cloth and cleaning up the butts." Don't hear that sentence to often.

Glad you both had a great vacation! I am on my way to Jamaica tonight! Everyone missed you guys at the International Tiki Marketplace. It was a really fun one this time! Everything I wanted just fell into my lap!

The mugs are looking good! The Sac Crawl is sure to be a great time with that mug!

Looks like you had a fabulous encounter with your family so that is a time to cherish. I think that is a Morris Recliner Dan is sitting in while enjoying the dual steel guitar...NICE!!!

Those mugs are looking awesome.

WaikikianMoeKele Dan is enjoying the attention. He He.

lunavideogames I had to do something to grab the attention from Dan. We love Marketplace and will miss it again in July dang it. I'd love to see photos of Jamaica, enjoy. I just hope that when full people can still be able to lift the mug with one hand.

Gene S Morgan Dan didn't actually buy the book, he was on a tiki hunt.

VampiressRN it was a great trip and we did make some nice memories that will last as long as we do. The music was wonderful. Wow you can recognize a maker of a recliner? I hope we see you at Mahalo Tiki on Saturday.

Progress Report:

I've finished the sculpt for the MadDogMike Cannibal Swap. I kept looking in the mirror to get the face right. Now it will dry slowly.

Pored in the slip and let it sit for 2 hours.

Dan has to lift this one.

We can't think of a better way to pour out the slip that's still liquid.



I've decided to do an experiment. I am going to make a volcano bowl. We made this bowl for Philot's Temple of the Jaguar bowl and this will be the second time I've used the mold.

We filled it to the top and let it sit for 2 hours.

Dan has to lift this one to pour out the slip that is still liquid.

We always make a mess.

The next day I put plastic wrap on a board so I can flip the mold to remove the bowl.

Put in place. I hold it while

Dan flipped it.

Lift off the mold straight up.

It came out just fine.

Plastic wrap.

Wet paper towels and a plastic bag to keep it moist.


Now it's time to get a #31 and #32 crawl mugs out of the molds. Cheers, Wendy

The cannibal pot is looking great! Still creepy but in a great way. HAHA

I really WISH I was the recipient of a volcano bowl from you, but unfortunately that wasn't me. Can't wait to see what you do with the new "experiment".

Bowls have been a passion of mine the last two years. It's been very hard because a.) good bowls are expensive and b.) good bowls are few and far between. One of my favorite artist bowls was one I picked up from Trader Tom. It doesn't even hold much, I just dig the glazes, and the naked ladies. And the shape.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what you come up with. I love your early bowls and glazes. Also, I'll have to track down the photo, but years and years ago, when I was photographing my grandparents as part of a project to recreate old horror and scifi movies using the same techniques they had in the 50's and 60's, there was a shot of a "farm couple" who had just seen a UFO. I had the exact same miniature UFO model made by Lindberg and used in Plan 9 hanging in the background, and was relying on the compression of a telephoto lens to force perspective. Anyway, for it, I had my grandmother make it look like she was screaming. So she had to open and close her mouth over and over again. Except that she started to "scream," after awhile. And by scream, I mean make a low pitched moan, because she was pretending to scream, so there was no reason to actually scream. Eventually I asked her what she was doing, and we had a good laugh over it.

I thought of that, and had a good laugh again, at the thought of you sitting there with a mirror, working on the bowl, just repeatedly opening your mouth to make it look like you're screaming.

So I was staring at your cannibal bowl and a certain picture come to mind; "The Scream" by Munch. I added your poor sacrifice's face to his famous painting and it looks perfect. You nailed the look.

littlegiles I agree it is creepy. The volcano bowl may turn out good or bad as an experiment who knows. I'm the owner for now, later if it turns out...

hang10tiki I'm glad to see you are carving for the swap, that's sweeeeet!

littlegiles I was thinking that too. I've saved your picture in my photoshopped file, thank you.

Hale Tiki and he did a perfect job of placing my face there.


Progress Report

Here's the reason why you should step back and think things through before you grab a "bargain."
A while back Dan found some chux (a flat cotton with plastic backed square) at an estate sale. We used them up packaging tikis to ship. So when we were at another estate sale he had that in mind when he bought two more cases. However when I went to package tikis I found that chux and adult diapers are very different. So If you get a tiki in a diaper you'll know how it happened!


Number 31 and 32 poured,

cleaned and drying in the shed.


I found a shady spot in the backyard and started sanding the Sacramento Crawl mugs that had dried.

It takes 20 to 30 minutes each to do it well.

One down.

On the bottom I added c (with) Dan, Sac Tiki Crawl c (copy write) 2013 and a box for numbering.


It was so pleasant and a cool breeze was blowing and then a chain saw started. I got up to see what was going on out back.

Our neighbors had their palm trees pruned. It was really loud but I kept working.


Then Dan showed up to dust off the mugs I was sanding so we could fire them. Now I had horrible noise on both sides...but I kept working.


My hands and arms gave up after 4 hours so I loaded the kiln about half full and ran it all night.


Next we poured mugs #33 and #34.



Volcano Bowl step by steps have begun.

First I carved my name etc. on the bottom of the bowl.


Then I flipped it over. Even wrapped it had firmed up. I added clay where the sides were thinner and smoothed it to match the thickness all the way around.


I choose the size for the volcano using a funnel. I'm making it large since I'm experimenting with glaze.


I then cut a large piece of clay using the funnel to mark the size.


Then I begun to roll it on the table top. I pushed harder on one end so that it would become cone shaped.


Next I dug out the inside 3/4th of the way up.


Once it is firmer I'll remove more clay.


Now I have the top of the volcano with a platform inside for burning rum soaked sugar cubes.


Now I need to go clean up those two mugs that just came out of the molds.
Thank you so much for your comments, visits and photos. You all give me energy to keep going.

Cheers, Wendy
