AAAAAAAAAND that's why there's no cats allowed in my house. Ever. Plus I don't like cats. Unless you put a cute cat in front of me, then I'm it's new best friend, and I'll pet that thing down to the skin. But in my house? No cats, no way, no sir. I love dogs, LOVE, but even then, I'm not happy about having a dog in my house eventually. Too much fur, on everything. But I love dogs too much to resist.

But these mugs, no sir, they'll have a place on honor way up high, to be taken down for special occasions with the wahine and I. So used, just not all the time. Well loved.




And as far as the lei goes, I always laugh when Dan votes for nipples. That man isn't afraid to say what he likes, I'll tell you that. Personally, I'd say lei. Not because I don't love nipples, I do, but the lei (and nothing but the lei, and a grass skirt) is part of the allure for a hula girl. Barely covered, and ripe for the picking. Or at least, that's what I learned from watching Tiki Archaeology. Okay, and because if I saw an exotic woman in just a grass skirt and lei, I'd go nuts too.

Hale Tiki it is posts like yours that keep me working long hours and doing my best at all times. I'm having a blast sharing all that we went through for Maddy. It will be fun when you take over the story. The last post on Maddy's second mug will be tomorrow and then it's your turn.

GROG our cat is allowed in Dan's jungle room and since her birth in 1999 she has never broken a mug. We love cats but only have her a SPCA rescue. I bet you have a cat.

lunavideogames maybe a short lei. You made some very good "points".

Atomic Tiki Punk I am reading your mind!


Hale Tiki after I'm done here with mug #2 I hope you'll post lots of photos of those mugs in use.

Tile tests
#1 is the new background glaze that I picked out. It is not designed to run. The spots in it flower out into brown spots. I thought that would tie in the brown tiki.
#2 is the runny choice that Hale Tiki made that didn't work for the outside. I decided that I would use it inside the mug and spot it on the outside.
#3 Octopus, #4 Puffer and #5 sea horses.


So first up #2 on the inside.


My choice #1 on the background with Hale Tikis #2 spotted here and there.


#3 Octopus


#5 Seahorses


Espresso glaze, brown, for the tiki.


#4 Puffer


I let it dry outside and then into the kiln to fire.


Finished photos tomorrow. Thank you for following this story. Your comments and visits make it so much fun. Wendy

Wendy, you & Hale Tiki make a good team!

Maddy's mug keeps getting better and better...

i think glaze 1 and 2 are going to be great compliments.

Wendy, looking great (for all). I'm ready for Hale to finish the tale of two muggies. Seeing the Uke Bob next to the second Maddy mug gives a definite time frame for when you were furiously working on these.

Wendy, love the painting (as does everyone else). Since you can't please all of the people all of the time, why not split the difference: one nipple exposed, the other covered by a lei? Please just think of me of a peace ambassador. A problem solver. You can also use some coconuts up there. Perhaps a red "censored" bar? Pasties? Should I keep going? (Probably not).

I look forward seeing whatever way you're going with the painting. I imagined the light source being a fire closer to the viewer- a fire, most likely.

Belated thank you on the carving advice- each one gets better (for me), and watching your technique helps immensely- thanks for continuing to do so.

GROG! Your Kitty was just trying to show how much he loved you and wanted to be close to you.

Wendy, again you have such patience I really don't know how you do it. As for the painting, I unabashedly like nipples, however part of the allure of the hula girl as was pointed out is also the costume and some of it being left to imagination. I like the suggestion of leaving one exposed and perhaps the other just barely covered.

Can't wait to see how Hale's second mug turns out.

I didn't think it was possible but I think Maddy #2 is even better than the original. I guess I shouldn't be surprised - practice makes perfect! The sculpt is flawless and I predict the glaze will be so too!

Can't wait for Hale to take over this tale.....

I have a huge smile because I have so many fun notes to respond too. Thank you. Today I hit 480,000 views and 240 pages. 350 makes a book. I wouldn't be here without all of you. Wendy

WaikikianMoeKele that's why the Wish Lists are so fun. I've paired up with a lot of you who had great ideas.

dartharnie Ahhh, you are right they did work out together.

TikiAno you are a smart detective. I'm going to do a glaze experiment with the Uke Bob. I wished I'd done his face in white so I'm going to see if I can do that on top of the glaze that's already there.

One out one covered, I didn't think of that. Maybe everyone will be happy that way.

I was thinking a volcano bowl gone crazy or a short torch?

There's so much wonderful advice on TC for artists. I love it here.

GROG I'm glad you survived your kitty. Your mug survived the kiln. Now you must survive the 16th to keep us all happy. Lastly you'll need to get that ticker fixed and party on...

tigertail777 so many good ideas. I love reading them.

LoriLovesTiki I liked it better too. I was surprised that when I copied it I had left over space.
I just realized that I was putting them as close together as they were on the fired mug. Well the mug shrunk as it dried and it shrunk when it was bisque fired. So the first mug had greater separations when sculpted which I didn't do as I copied. I hope Maddy liked having a set of Sea Horses.

(Can't wait for Hale to take over this tale.....) me too because I haven't heard if Maddy liked her mugs or the story yet.

Hale Tiki I'll be reading from hotel computers, get busy!

Dan and I were watching an old episode of Fringe. The agent was sneaking through an old house and as she was passing into another room we saw these fuzzy things in a closet. We think they look like Moai lights that hang from the electric wire. Possible?


Progress Report on the Sacramento Crawl Mug and misc. first.

Here's the volcano paired with its bowl. Soon I'll experiment with lava.


The crawl mugs have all been poured, bisque fired and washed.


Next up I'll be glazing them.


Dan's afraid our table will collapse. There's around 300 pounds of tikis on this table.


I cover them with these plastic table clothes to keep the dust off until I get back to work.



Here comes the last edition from danlovestikis of the Hale Tiki Mug saga.

All done and out of the kiln.














Dan boxed the mug and off it went to Hale Tiki and his big event.



OK Lucky (Hale Tiki) your turn. I hope you'll post here as well as on Ohana. I'm leaving for Tiki Kon and you could keep my thread alive.

Thank you all for sticking with the story of this man's love for Maddy. These mugs were only a small part and I was happy to contribute but wait until you see the rest of the story!

Cheers, Wendy

Ha! Grog one funny caveman. Glad Grog had warm coat and something plush to curl up on.

Wendy, love the picture of the (eye level) Tiki Soldiers on the Independence Day tablecloth. They look like they're ready for something big. (Glazing?)

FYI, I'd like to leave the painting up to the artist- I was just joking around giving suggestions- Iooking forward to your choice and where you head with it. It's very cool watching artists work- we're very lucky here at TC to watch so many talented folks show their steps along the way.

That being said, perhaps a neon tube top for the hula girl?

I knew you would pull an amazing mug out of thin air. That second mug for Maddy is amazing!! A pure joy to see.

Have a great time at TikiKon. Safe journeys.
