HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my favorite little lady mug maker! I wish I had won the Lottery. I would have flown out to CA just to give you a big birthday hug and then flown back home.

Hope you had a very special day and I'm sure Dan spoiled you rotten.

HUGS

- Dale

Happy Birthday Wendy!!! Sorry for the late wishes, first time on TC today. I hope you had a wonderful day filled with hugs, cake, cookies, and tikis. Oh, and Dan, too!

The latest kiln load looks amazing- love the pumpkin orange glaze test tile. I've never had great luck w/ underglazes. I will check w/ someone who does lots of glazing detail work and see what underglazes she uses- that being said, it might be colored slip that she works with?

In any case, look forward to seeing you next week!

I hope you had a nice birthday Wendy!

Those crawl mugs are really something. I don't comment on your thread very often, but wanted to say I am awed by the amount of work that you two do, and your devotion in keeping this thread going, bringing us all along with you on your journey.

Sorry I missed your birthday, Wendy! I got a new puppy and he's been keeping me busy. I hope you had a fabulous day!!!


the guy on the left is a 4 month old mixed breed rescue that we saved from a kill shelter in NC. He's named Harvey after the Mets pitcher. The dog on the right is our 5 year old Chug named Pudgie.

First off I had a wonderful birthday, especially because you all sent me well wishes here. Thank you very much (: I logged on a bunch of times just to read the next one. I smiled all day yesterday and today. I'll just answer any other messages now.

GROG these are new 06 glazes and they did turn out well on the chip. BIG Hugs at Oasis.

Atomic Tiki Punk (:

Holler Waller (:

zerostreet (:

swizzle I saw you ask for someone to pass on hugs from you at Oasis. If you send me the list I can do it. I'll be doing the same for ZERO TIKI

MadDogMike Yep, but in person is fun too. Dan and I celebrate the entire month. (:

I have always used the Duncan Cover Coats and only had them run with a pale colored bulk clear glaze which I now avoid. So it is back to Cover Coats and the dark green clear glaze.

WaikikianMoeKele finding new glazes is such fun. (:

Professor G (:

Gene S Morgan I like the reference to 29 especially since I now qualify for social security.

littlegiles I want to win the lottery too and build a home that looks like the Stockton Islander. I'm so flattered you would have used some for me!

tigertail777 (:

TikiRootsRocka (:

TikiAno Duncan Cover Coat works really well. I was trying to avoid having to also do 2 layers of clear glaze and instead I ended up with more work than that to fix them. (:

Bruddah Bear (((:

LoriLovesTiki oh cute puppy and dog. Our cat keeps us busy. She is a princess, no queen who has us wait on her.

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

We are packing for Oasis and leaving soon to visit relatives along the way. So soon I'll be writing but not posting photos. So here are a few for now.


The joke in my family is that Dan takes me shopping for a birthday present and he always comes home with the loot.

The tag on this said, "This is NOT a tourist tiki". It is really nice, the bottom has felt so we
don't know if it is signed. It is light weight like coconut.



He also found a Tonga Room Fairmount Hotel San Francisco Pepper shaker so he bought it too.


On my birthday a new restaurant opened and we were the first customers. It was a Marie Calendar's that was jutted and now looks spectacular.

It was a fun day out.


Back to opening the kiln. Notice that evil glint in Dan's eyes. He'd just said, "This one is for me"! So using a crystal glaze on top of three layers of brown worked really well.

Same for putting the Concepts under-glaze in the lettering. It didn't run.


This is the mug for Dan's best friend.

It has his badge number.

You can't tell here but this new glaze sparkles as you move the mug.


I finished painting the two women necklaces with enamel paint and baked them. I gave Dan the one I liked least

and saved this one for hang10tiki for noticing I'd done 250 pages here. Deal is he has to wear it for a day at Oasis. I haven't heard from him yet. hang10 deal???

I was able to save the faces on this bowl with enamel paint the same way.

Dan found a place to display it.

The person who ordered this bowl disappeared. I hope he is alright. Dan put it into his collection but knows if the gentleman comes back he's allowed to buy it.


That's it for today. Thank you all again for making my birthday feel very special. I treasure all my friends on TC. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki Dan would say I resemble that remark but that would be conceited so I'll just say thank you for not calling me an old hen! I'm looking forward to seeing you and Jonelle too. Are you going to wear the necklace?

Atomic Tiki Punk thank you so much I'm always trying to keep my work from looking as if it was made today.

This is the last post with photos until we return from Tiki Oasis. Last night we work up with a dog going crazy like we had a prowler. I'm going to arm my house sitter with water balloons and an electrical taser. Of course my cat is a killer too.

I'm looking forward to seeing many of you again and new people too. Please come tap me on the shoulder, at any time, for a visit. John-O met came up to us during dinner at the Islands and we had a great visit. You all mean so much to me. Please say come up and say hi.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Guess what I made a few Bob's a while back and here are a few more to share.

This is Tiki Rum Bob. He is a bit different from my Rum Barrel Bob which Dan took.

This one has four bands instead of two.

The rivets stand out instead of carved in.

The writing is at the bottom.

It says Tiki Rum Bob on the back and then on the bottom.



I really like doing my own versions of PNG Bob's.













A while back I did a Maori Bob for Steve Soto in purple. These take forever to carve but I like this design so much I wanted to do another in a different color.

After blocking in the pattern

I just start carving in the design.

Looks like my cat was keeping me company the whole time.



I called this June Bob because that is the month I carved it. Silly huh? When I was a kid I used to catch June Bugs under the street light and let them crawl in my hands. It had a fun tickle feeling.
So June Bug / June Bob



My last one is Somethings Fishy Bob.

He has a mouth ready for a kiss.

Lots of scales

that had their sharp edges smoothed with a wet brush.

A messy bottom.



So that's it for photos until we return from Tiki Oasis 13. I'll have a lot of photos to share from the event. I'll be reading this thread every day while we are gone so I hope to hear what you are all up to.

Cheers, Wendy

WaikikianMoeKele I've been missing you. Remember all the Hallmark ornaments. My great-niece is due to have her first baby so I gave her all the rest of them (around 100) and she's so excited.

I had a lot of fun carving those Bobs, I'm glad you like them.

hang10tiki that girl wants to hang around your neck! Bob wants you to wear her too.

-------------
We had a wonderful day. We drove clear to Monticeto and enjoyed a visit with my nephews family and now we are checked into our hotel in Ventura. It looks like there is a carnival on the beach that we will check out tomorrow.
--------------

I hear Oasis in the distance calling us. Cheers, Wendy

Hope to see you at Oasis.
