LoriLovesTiki good guess but he'll have to tell that story.

hang10tiki Hale tiki did what Gene did by combining tiki parts to make a whole. I've daydreamed about it but never did one...yet. You are right Dan does look like he's going down a water slide.

lunavideogames we love to be photoshopped!

tigertail777 awesome work. All you guys are so good at this and we are so lucky you do it to us.

zerostreet those little suckers take way too much time.

hang10tiki he did do a great job. I've added it to my photoshopped file along with yours, GROGS, luavideogames and AnoTikis. Did I miss anyone?


Hale Tikis mugs continued...

I turned the mug upside down and then back over to do this part of the design.


With the carving done on the bottom of the mug I started on the Tiki Central Tapa design for the top of the mug.





The last ring of pattern around the mug is carved.










Here I carved detail into the chin.


He requested holes to separate the tongue from the lip and chin.


Here's a good error. The date should be 6 for June. Neither of us saved the email that would have shown where the error came from. He didn't notice when I sent him this photo so the mugs fired this way.


Maddy's mug continues on...

I worked on the tiki face by carving in the detail.















All done it was placed with other projects to dry.
I'm missing dartharnie the man who had me make the monster series.


After the two mugs had dried I sanded them and fine tuned the carving.


TGIF!

Cheers, Wendy

Awe...I miss you too. Life gets in the way too often...especially lately

Both the drum and Maddy's mug are stunning. The detail and the skill are awesome. The octopus reminds me of the NYC natural history museum, where they have an exhibit of a giant whale/squid fight....Now the octo looks nothing like it, but the way it hangs over the mug brought back childhood memories.

http://www.amnh.org/exhibitions/permanent-exhibitions/biodiversity-and-environmental-halls/milstein-hall-of-ocean-life/sperm-whale-and-giant-squid (for reference)

BTW...they also have a pacific peoples exhibit all tiki lovers should visit at least once. http://www.amnh.org/exhibitions/permanent-exhibitions/human-origins-and-cultural-halls/margaret-mead-hall-of-pacific-peoples

Sorry didn't mean for this to be a commercial

Wow is it hot! It's 8:30 PM and 102 degrees last time I turned on the weather channel. I'm going to add to the heat. I have turned on my kiln!

WaikikianMoeKele (:

ebtiki (:

hang10tiki (:

littlegiles the design is owned by Hale Tiki you'll have to think yours up like you did for the Temple of the Jaguar bowl.

Gene S Morgan I love carving. My mom gave me razor blades, knives and matches before I went to kindergarten. It made a huge difference in how I work with tools.

dartharnie I love that museum. When we visited there we were not yet tiki people so I don't remember this pacific peoples section. Maybe they didn't have it yet, it was more than 20 years ago.
I wish I could put a smile on that little face at the end of your sentence. I'm smiling at you right now (:

I bet Hale Tiki is loving the fact that you all like his design. I'm glad you all like it too. This is what the wish list is all about. You think it up and I'll make it.

It was getting hot fast.

7 AM up to beat the heat and get some sanding done.

Face mask plus I got ear guards when Dan started mowing the lawn.

I needed to get 8 sanded to fill the kiln. No way could I beat Dan, he was mowing fast.

I didn't carry these out on trays like this, too heavy. I put out the trays and then
carried tikis to set on them.

Dan dusted all the mugs for me.

I had to buy new posts since these tikis are so tall.

Bottom level.

Top level before I put in two secret mugs.


I hope my kiln will do alright in the heat. It should finish by 10 am tomorrow.

I hope you are all having a fun Saturday night. I really enjoyed reading all your comments, Wendy

Jon it was hot but it only got to cone 015 outside today and those have to fire at cone 04

Those are some tall posts Wendy! And great looking mugs too, may the kiln gods smile down on them.

hang10tiki I was watching the weather report for Las Vegas yesterday. I think I could come to your home and fire them in your backyard.

MadDogMike I fired in the night and it is still going. I hope it will turn off by the time it hits 90 here. Did you use a cone for the 015? You could almost put gold on your work. Those posts are heavy but at least I'm not stacking posts which is scary.

hang10tiki snow cone or Hawaiian Ice. I think I need one. There is a machine called a small Snowey that makes the ice but the machine is expensive. I saw it on Storage Wars. They appraised it at $1500 but I looked it up and it was $250. Can't trust those shows.


I decided that I would work in a sauna yesterday. I went out to the garage. First Dan and I put the crawl tiki molds together and put them in the mold storage. I'm running out of room.


We were at the Cancer Society shop and I saw this toy. I haven't done potters wheel since I was in college and I thought it would be fun to try.


I made a lump of air free clay and slammed it down on the platform.


It didn't stick and my pot got all messed up. I tried wet clay, dry clay, nothing would stick. The clay that comes with the wheel wasn't in the box so I couldn't try that. I cleaned it back up and I'll re-donate it to the shop.


Next it was time to carve the detail into these two bowls.


This big flat bowl will hold the volcano of Tiki Island.


Along with the tapa design I did Tiki Island twice.


Next I worked on the Hula Girl bowl. I just shredded the outside.


All done.


Today is a no clay day. I'm going to work on the painting for Tiki Oasis 13. This Hulabilly theme is hard but I'll try to make it work. Wish me luck, Wendy

Very awesome mugs for Hale Tiki! We are all jealous! I like how the octopus wraps around the mug.

Storage Wars is totally fake. I hear that they plant items in the lockers for shock value. Whenever they are pricing video games I yell at the TV and say that is not what they go for! My friend got onto Pawn Stars, and it was just a publicity stunt. That show is also fake. No reality in reality TV...

Not hot here. I am lucky to live by the coast!

lunavideogames Hale Tikis ideas were really good, thank you for the kind comments on my part of the creations. We like both Storage Wars (Barry is sexy) and Pawn Stars. I guess it's more like Antique Roadshow.

Progress Report on the painting for Tiki Oasis 13

Lighting changes the colors dramatically. It is really dark red and black.

I started our yesterday by painting the foliage around the trees.

Sorry for the blurry photos. I next added the foreground and a fire in a pit.

McTiki did another tiki design that he has allowed me to use for the painting. I printed it out the size I wanted and used this silver pen to outline it on the canvas. Shortcuts really help.

The silver ran under the photo but it came off easily since I didn't wait to remove it.

It would have been best to paint the tiki black and then do highlights like Robb Hamel does his black velvets but with a black background I'll have to work it out with the dark added.

Here I've just roughed in the outline of the tikis body parts.


Hale Tikis mugs

His out of the bisque fire and washed. Nothing broke off so glazing is next.






Maddy's out of the bisque fire and washed. I really worried about parts exploding off this mug but if came out just fine.








This is a photo of the glazing instructions from Hale Tiki and the glazes I bought to do the trick.
My head was spinning after reading these and these are only for his mug!!!



I have one more load to sand for the crawl mugs so they can bisque fire then I'll be glazing the rest of the summer while I finish this painting.

Thank you for the visit, Wendy
