Professor G thank you. My hope is that my art is worth keeping in collections and that these tikis will still be around when Dan and I are not. I try to choose well the projects that I do. When I
saw the photos of the wooden tiki from the Coral Reef in Sacramento it was an easy choice. What
"grabbed" me were the hands. I'd not seen hands carved in this position before. So now there is a mug to go with the tiki.


hang10tiki you posters keep me going.

Gene S Morgan the color of the mug is the darker color. I need to get some bulbs for the portable photographic studio that MadDogMike gave me so I can do better photos again. I used it so much I burnt them out.

-------------------------------
I'm back to experimenting on the Artist Proof mugs.

Here I've taken a coral under-glaze and I'm painting right on top of the glazed mug. Since it is on top I don't have to use the wax. However when I fire this it could all run out of the grooves. That's what I need to find out.


Then I took one of the others and covered it with a glaze that has crystals. So it will make spots all over the mug when I fire it again.


Next up is my painting for the Tiki Oasis 13 show. I can't seem to get a good photo.
The title of the painting is:

Hot Night On Hulabilly Beach
Hahana Po Ma Hulabilly Kahakai

I'm sure the Hawaiian interpretation is full of grammatical errors but at least I tried.




Photos of paintings can be so strange. I look at this one and her eye looks like it has a big black dot. The painting looks just fine. I'm still tweaking it. I had fun having lava flow out of the ground. If it keeps flowing the tiki will go up in flames.

Off to work, cheers, Wendy

You are correct MDM. Diffused lighting. Nice, even lighting overall, no harsh highlights or shadows.

Professor is spot on. I realize the back of the mug (w/ the writing) is perfect, especially the vertical detailing. Wowzers.

Might be interesting to see another photo of the mug in another (non-studio) setting, w/ a photo of you or Dan (something to compare the color to). Not that you (or Dan) are the color of the mug, but at least most of us are already familiar with your mugs, and can thus compare and contrast the color of the Crawl Mug w/ Wendy & Dan's mug(s).

That being said, I really like the flash AND non-flash versions.

Thanks also for the wax resist tip. I've never used it on TOP of an existing glaze layer (just on the base bisque forms to prevent glaze from sticking to it), makes complete sense to use it that way but never thought of using it like that. Sure, I feel like an idiot for not thinking of this, but better late than never. Yay....

The painting looks great, her top looks great- as do her eyes (to me).

Wendy, also please tell Dan that I promise to not pinch his butt, but I can't vouch for the rest of these people around here.

MadDogMike it is unbelievable to me that you suggest photos when it is cloudy and a storm rolled in today. I was also able to buy the replacement bulbs for the photographic studio today at Home Depot.

GROG I swear I've tried it everyway possible. But today with clouds in my dark shed it worked best.

hang10tiki 250 pages! What do I win??? No actually I wasn't paying attention and I should have. So here's the deal if I bring you a prize at Oasis do you agree to wear it for at least one day no matter what it looks like?

TikiAno Dan said he was thinking that the backside check should be mandatory.

I am so happy that that some of my ideas are useful information for my readers. Swizzle wrote to me last night that he's using my spike method for glazing.

Oh and I forgot to mention that the glaze didn't skip where I had cleaned grass stains off the butt.

I will try to get a photo of us with the mug soon. I'm glad you like the painting here are more photos from today.

-------------------
Cloudy outside on my table.

Inside my dark shed.

Closeup.

Closeup.

-------------------

We went to Alpha Fired Arts and Dan found a friend who while not the most interesting man in the world is still interesting to us. Actual size reproduction from Xeon.


-------------------

Back from Alpha I needed to do some glaze tests for some new glaze colors.

I went there to find silver for the badge on this Detective mug for our friend Frank.

I lucked out. I went to get a silver glaze I'd run out of and found a brand new glaze that I thought would look even better.

The lettering is in black and will show up fine after firing. The silver glaze will sparkle.

I loaded the kiln and fired last night.

I will open it tomorrow.

The crawl mug is two tall for two layers so I'll have to fire twice as many times.

That's it for today. Thank you for checking in and for your posts, Wendy

Hi Friends, today is my birthday and I choose to start it off by posting here. I just have so much fun doing this that why not start the day right.

After a very long and hard journey I have completed the Missionary's Downfall bowl for Psycho Tiki D
He came and picked it up yesterday and we had a fun visit.


I opened the kiln.


The three new glazes look good. Silver sparkles, Pumpkin Orange and pewter.


I found that the hula girls glazing didn't work again. The Concepts under-glazes by Duncan run. These are under-glazes that fire and have a glossy finish without putting on a clear coat. They are an inferior product for detail. I've tried two ways. First by layers and the by scraping off glaze and applying the black and red on the bisque. Both ways ran.

I am going to paint these woman with enamel and make them look good. Same for this bowl.

Norma and I had a fun play day and her two vases are ready to pick up.


I still need to take photos to show my Artist Proof Crawl mugs. I learned some more and I'll share that tomorrow.

May your day be special, I'm going to go find some cake! Wendy

Happy Birthday, Wendy. BIG HUG!

Are those mettallics supposed to be fired at cone 06? Looks like they worked fine.

WENDY!!! I cant believe I missed your birthday and didn't get your card out on time I'll have to bring it to Oasis with me (didn't I do that last year too? )
Happy birthday anyway!


EDIT - I never did like the Duncan Concepts. They do become glossy without a clear coat and they run, I'm not sure why they are considered an underglaze? I use the Duncan CoverCoats and have never had a problem.

The Happiest of Happy Birthdays to Wonderful Wendy!

It amazes me how really shiny silver that silver glaze is.
