MaroneTiki thank you, that glaze is pretty and I learned a lot about this type of glaze doing Hale Tikis project.

Atomic Tiki Punk I can honestly say that was the comment that Hale Tiki will adore.

hang10tiki this is a mug that Dan drooled over. Sorry no photo of him!

Woodtiki there were even more instructions for this mug that I'll share at some point in this presentation. These were very important for his popping weekend event. I had to get it right.

GROG if I had two volunteers who wouldn't run off with this mug I would have. This is Wednesday. We are all waiting to here about your appointment. We'll check Ohana at the end of the day. Dan and I have volunteered for a heart study and today we are both having CT Angiograms. We had to take beta blockers to slow our heart rates down. We be mellow people today.

Hale Tiki I've waited a long time to share your mugs and I'm having a lot of fun here. I hope you'll be able to post the rest of the story soon or as I finish up.


Gotta run to our appointment I'll post photos when we get back this afternoon. Cheers, Wendy

Thank you CY, see you soon.

Hale Tiki's mugs in the works from his drawings.

His mug.

I started with the bottom making it as big around as I needed to match the drawing.


Then I added clay upward and blended it in.


Then I started on the top working until the overall shape was correct.


Next I did the inner and outer eyes.


Then I worked on the lips.


Maddy's mug.

Each of these mugs started out as Tiki Bob's. I filled in his face for this one and added clay for the tiki.


I worked on the octopus so that the legs were beautiful on the tiki side.


They wrapped around and below I fit in the puffer fish.


The last sea creature was the sea horse.


Not finished but a good start.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________

Being part of experimental studies can be a really good opportunity to gain information. Dan and I are participating in a genetic test that will show if we are prone to heart disease.

Earlier this week we had our blood drawn. 12 tubes each.



Today we went and had CT Angiograms.

In the waiting room this morning.

My turn.

Dan's turn.


Now its time to get to work on the important stuff.


Thanks for the visit, Wendy

That is great that you guys are getting check ups. Better to find problems earlier rather than later.

The mugs are looking great! Are we all going to Hale's big day?

Don't ya'll look cute getting your angiograms together.
GROG' angiogram scheduled for July 11th. Looks like GROG' angiogram going to be a little more invasive than yours and Dan's. Don't want to hijack your thread, so check TC Infirmary for more.

Looks like you're having fun doing Hale Tiki's mugs. GROG' been a bit distracted lately with other stuff , so GROG have a batch of ceramics people ordered that have been waiting several weeks for GROG to get around to glazing. And everybody know how much GROG like glazing. You two are a well-oiled machine. GROG going to have to send GROG' ceramics up to you to get finished. (Plus, Dan bake cookies for you).

Wendy ... you and Dan look pretty darn happy heading into those scary machines ... Did losing all that blood make you light headed? How are you able to handle those monster molds after all that? ... Being tested can only be a good thing ... you will be glad you did ....

For those of you following the thread, there will be a big write-up about the special event in Ohana as soon as I can find the extra hours to sit down and gather together all the material. I'm still finding things that I hid away to scan in. Part of what made it so special, and so much fun for me, was the nearly daily back and forth with Wendy about the mugs, and life in general. It was a lot of fun working together, and as you all know, Wendy is amazing at what she does. I would write or draw something, and the next thing I knew, I'd have an email with photos of exactly what I wanted, or so close that it only needed a minor adjustment. All from 2,500 miles away. It was a sad day when the mugs were done, and it meant no more collaborating. But, I think that there will definitely be other mugs in the future As long as she has the time

lunavideogames this is our second research study. This morning we go back for another appointment for our first light wave study. I'll share photos of that one in the future.

Hale will share everything with us soon. I just had this small part to help him pull it off.
Hale Tikis mind and my hands, thank you, we liked the mugs too.

GROG you will make the cutest zipper club member ever. You may hijack my thread whenever you like, my gift to you! Ceramics have to take a backseat to good health and everyone loves you and will be patient. I'm glad you think we look cute having our tests. We work hard at that since we are senior citizens.

Gene S Morgan these tests were really easy except Dan's veins are too small for a big guy. The tech bragged that she was the one they called on for hard cases, well she had to poke him twice. We are looking forward to the results meanwhile we do lift those molds and make those tikis.

PS I've been back to look at your tiki shower curtain twice more. The design and colors are such fun.

Hale Tiki it is such fun to finally get to share your designs and my work with everyone along with the bumps in the road.


The Hale Tiki story continues...


His mug.
I added the chin and then the tongue.

Side view.

Then I started on the headdress.

Next I skipped down to the bottom to start the drum design.

More

and more the design was carved into the mug.


Maddy's mug

I fine tuned the puffer fish

the sea horse

and worked on the octopus face. Hale Tiki requested happy faces.

Then it came time to roll dozens of little sticky clay balls for the octopus.

I would put them in place and push a hole into each one with a paintbrush end.
Then I would use slip as glue and brush it around each one.

Hours later they were all in place.


Nothing goes as fast as what you see each day I post. This is the speed it up version. I did have a deadline which I don't usually like to work by but this was for a very special event. The pressure was on!

Cheers, Wendy

Wendy,

I think you may have outdone yourself on the Hale mugs! Now I can't wait to hear about the proposal, which is what I assume happened. Adorable!!!

Running over to infirmary to check the tale of GROG.
