Looks like you guys made the most of your trip! I like all the cool things that you found in OB. I can't believe Dan got that King Ku Bowl! That thing is amazing!

I like the pictures. Thanks for posting the one with me and Doug. I forgot about that one.

lunarvideogames you are welcome. We won't forget to come see you if we make it to Oasis 14.


A few years back MadDogMike made this wolfman hand holding a severed vampire head. We won it on eBay and have loved it ever since.


Next came the contest at Tiki Farm and I decided to use a hand in my design. MadDog must have planted the idea there.






Now tonight Munktiki has their own version of a hand and mug. If you get one post it here when you get it for us to see.













Munktiki.com

6 P.M pst Tuesday 27th 2013

Fact

Zombie Hand Bob

This Tuesday August 27th 2013 up for your viewing and buying pleasure is Zombie Hand Bob. Sometimes you need an extra hand when drinking, just so happens this extra "Zombie" hand has a firm grip on a Tiki Bob mug. Don't try prying Bob from these cold dead hands though or you might anger your new Zombie Hand pal (most likely you'll just break it if you do). Just grab his wrist and drink away!
Zombie Hand Bob comes in a bunch of combinations. You'll be able to choose from either Mummified Brown or Zombie Green for your hand. For Bob there will be numerous colors to choose from.
Zombie Hand Bob stands at 10 1/2 inches tall and holds 12 ozs. Grab one of these suckers for just $85!

Fact

Only half the edition will be for sale Tuesday night, the rest will be released later and please only 1 per person the first 24 hours of the sale. When ordering please write in the comments during checkout what colors you want. Mugs will be made to order!

tic tic tic .....................the clock is counting down.



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

Dan's best friend is holding the detective Tiki Bob mug that I made for him. He's been Dan's best friend since 2nd grade. In the photo is his wife Sherry and grandson Trisin. When I married Dan 35 years ago that brought me a best friend and a grandson too. I think Tristin is hoping for a Tiki Bob mug in the future.
We are doing our best to raise him to love tikis.





Until tomorrow friends, Wendy

I just grabbed a Zombie Hand Bob mug. I will get some pictures as soon as I receive it. Hopefully soon. I don't know if I should have waited for the Raw Lava one though, but I am hoping mine looks cool anyway!

It took me 3 tries to order one as well. I started at 6 and it took me 15 minutes to actually get the transaction to work. That seems to happen a lot with their smaller run mugs. I keep getting a server message that says they are having trouble connecting. But I got one so whatever!

lunavideogames good for you getting through. I had that problem with getting a room for Oasis. The trick there turned out to be to refresh the page. I learned it too late to get the room I wanted.

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

I want to share a couple of home projects with you today.

I recently noticed that Dan's collection of usable tiki mugs and glasses in the kitchen were causing the shelves to sag.
He cut some pieces of wood and hid them behind the front piece of wood.


Hopefully the shelves can't collapse now.



Hobby Lobby opened in our town so we went there to spend our 40% off coupon (that's how Dan built his jungle room, one coupon at a time)and we found a Hawaiian section. Dan's not quiet, Dan's lots of fun.


I always have tiki projects on our dining room table. I use the MadDogMike photo studio there and I line up projects and things to ship. So one morning I told Dan that I was going to give away all of my parents china and crystal to my great-niece Michelle. I told him if he would pack it up he could have all the shelves
for his tiki collection.



He jumped on the offer and packed it all up. He had no problem filling them up.

When he needs more wall space I'll take down my paintings and let him use the wall too.


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

At Tiki Oasis Dan bought bowls from Bowana. One of them had a crack inside the bowl. Bowana discounted it because of the crack. I asked Dan if he would agree to risk a repair on the bowl. He said yes.

I couldn't tell if the crack was in the glaze or in the glaze and into the bisque. If it was in the bisque then this wouldn't work. I wanted to add glaze and do the firing and cooling very slowly to see if it would repair.

I picked a complimentary glaze and painted one layer. I didn't know how many layers were present and glaze that is too thick can crack.

This glaze dries a pretty pink.

After firing with a 10 hour preheat and a 12.5 hour ramp and cooling over night until it was down to 130 degrees we found a beautiful solid bowl.

I had Dan wrap it in towels so that it would cool slowly down to room temperature. He put the wrapped bowl in our 80 degree garage.

The next day when he unwrapped it we found the crack had reformed and

was now visible on the bottom. So now I think that the crack was into the bisque also.

We gambled and we lost. Dan likes this bowl so much that he is still displaying it in his collection.

Roge is back to work on resin projects. He just made some sun-catchers. I'm going to post them now on Marketplace.

Cheers, Wendy

So much cool stuff.... love all the pics from your trip.

Have to give you a hand on posting about the zombie hand mug (and cannot believe I am the first to roll out this old cornball joke).

Really sorry to hear about the Bowana bowl it looked so beautiful when you took it out of the kiln. Again this is why I could not do your line... I would end up shattering half the stuff I made to smithereens out of frustration. If I had all the things go wrong for instance that are happening to poor Zerostreet right now with his mugs I would hang my hat and call it quits. I've almost destroyed some of my paintings in the past because of frustration, so to me to do all this kiln stuff requires the patience of a saint.

I guess that's part of what keeps me tuned in on the edge of my seat to the Wendy and Dan show.

Dang, sorry to see what happened to Dave's (and Dan's!) bowl. The new glaze layer looked great- wonder if your kiln temp made a difference on the body of the piece? (High/low fire difference?)

Still looks great, maybe Dan can have the cracked side towards the back of the shelf... ? Thanks for posting all....

When I saw this picture, my heart sang.


When I saw this picture, my heart broke.


That's a really great glaze that compliments the outside color of the bowl perfectly.
I wonder if it cooled to rapidly?
Sorry to see it end up this way. If Dan still likes it enough to display it, that makes my day!
Thanks for thinking so much of it that you attempted to fix it.

Anyways, nice to see you at Oasis!

tigertail777 ups and downs but no matter what we learn from our mistakes.

TikiAno I did everything right to try to repair the bowl. Long preheat and a super slow ramp. It cooled to 130 degrees before we opened the kiln. Then we wrapped it up to hold in the heat for the rest of the day. If I could do it over again I would have left the kiln closed until it was room temperature inside. I'm sure someday I'll be trying this again.

Dan did put it on a shelf with the good side out.

Bowana/Bowie I didn't know you had a nickname. I think it would have benefited from slower cooling. I shouldn't have followed the 130 degree rule with this bowl.
It is a beautiful bowl even cracked.

hang10tiki those were Dan's words too. When he wrapped it up it was perfect so it was really sad to uncover it and find the crack. Oh well.

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

Back to work on the Sacramento Crawl mugs.

While the bisque fired mugs were waiting to be glazed I had them under plastic table clothes.


Even though they were covered I worried that there could be some dust on them.
One by one I carried them into the kitchen and rinsed them off inside and out.

I put them upside down on trays to keep dust from getting inside.

I figured that by the next day they would be dry enough but still damp enough to glaze.

So I took these photos and called it a day.


Gee, we can't cook in this kitchen we better go out to dinner! Cheers, Wendy

i hate that you had to go out for dinner. Gosh, you suffer so much for your art! haha

That's a strong kitchen island

littlegiles Dan likes a neat home and is horrified by the mess that making ceramics at home brings. However since he takes so many of my pieces he isn't allowed to complain. Dinner out was nice. We went to our favorite Indian Restaurant because they were now offering a buffet two nights a week. We were a bit disappointed to see it was the same buffet they have at lunch. Oh well the food is always excellent.

hang10tiki very close but add in all the water each one sucked up when I rinsed them inside and out.

MaukaHale until the Sacramento Crawl or the birth of my great-great-nephew. They are both coming up! Thank you for the heads up.

------------------------------------
We have a lot of tikis and skulls in our backyard. Dan got me yesterday to show that nature had added its own touch of art to our yard.


------------------------------------
In case you don't visit Marketplace often Roge is now had Sun Catchers for sale or special order and is selling them at 2 for the price of one for Tiki Central folks. Here's some photos. All the information about getting one is on Marketplace. The whole thread has the history of chunk lamps with photos of places that had them. Example: Disneyland Bowling.






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


Some things just work out well. All the Sacramento Crawl mugs are upside down so why not do the bottoms. Not Dan's bottom, that comes later, just the bottom of the mugs.

It wasn't easy standing up to do these but working from morning until night I got them done in two days. My postings here are close but not always done along with the work.


I left a small white area where I will number the mugs. I saw that the first one I'd done didn't have the white area so I used a wet paper towel to remove the glaze in the box. Remember I had to do this three times to make it three layers.


Next I went back and finished off with a strip of glaze under the white area.


All done and so was I.


You can see as they dry there are some tiny white areas where bubbles popped. I went back and added glaze to fill these in.

Back to work, thank you for the visit, you are all appreciated so much that I need to keep saying this often. Wendy
