Both of the new pieces are fantastic. Zombie's Torch mug's detail is over the top, and I love the concept of "reveals" in any drinking vessel. Safe travels, and look forward to seeing more progress.

Hi Friends, after 12 hours on the road we are home safe and happy. Now we'll have a bowl of soup and watch TV until bedtime.
Thank you for all the fun while we were on our vacation. We had a blast seeing hang10tikis Honu Lounge and him of course. Having our friends with us is always a treat. Oh, Dan's calling. Be back tomorrow, cheers, Wendy

WaikikianMoeKele maybe we can break the curse with this one. Your well wishes did bring us home safely, thank you.

TikiAno it is so good to be home. We'll have a special Thanksgivakah tomorrow. We have Jewish friends who told us that Hanukah for the first time since 1888 starts on Thanksgiving. We are going to their home for a pot luck meal and good cheer.

Romo's sculptors clay allows for fine detail but then you have to mold it to continue. I'll be doing more of that for the Wish List projects that were ordered.

You wish is granted, more in progress photos of the Cursed Bowl.

===============================================================================

The Cursed Bowl continues to behave. The large patch has held its place.

I used this tool to round each piece of bamboo.


I smoothed the bamboo with my big paint brush.


I added the section dividers to the bamboo.


I used this tool to do more rounding. Also to make an indentation at the base of each divider.


The multi-wire tool makes nice lines that will fill with glaze to give the bamboo texture.


The outside is all done.


I decided to just do the same on the inside. Flat surfaces are never flat enough with glaze, so why not just mess it up.


All done.


Different angle.



I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving. I am very grateful for all your comments and views this year. Thank you all for your support. I love making tiki ceramics while you watch. Many cheers for the holidays from Wendy and Dan

PS I'll be back tomorrow, our meal isn't until 4 PM

TikiHula I sure hope the cursed bowl becomes a sweet bowl. We are thankful for you too. I'll take photos at Dr. Tiki Mojo's Streng home today to share. A real tiki Thanksgiving.


hang10tiki are you home and sleeping to recover from all the Gecko and Oahu fun? I'll keep an eye on Dan all day. Than you for all the fun photos.

======================================================================================================

Last major step in making the cursed bowl was to add clay to make the tikis. I started with noses and foreheads.


I was at a small area and a hard angle in which to maneuver.


I just went slowly adding small bits of clay.


There's on bit on the tip of my finger.


Added the frowning mouths and top knots to their hats.


Close up.


Side view


and the other side view.


Now it will need to dry very slowly while I work on the Wish List Orders.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE FROM DAN AND WENDY. WE ARE SO THANKFUL FOR ALL OUR TIKI FRIENDS.

I just watched zerostreets video of drawing an art card. Please check it out it's wonderful.

=============================================================================================

Thank you hang10tiki. What an extraordinary month for travel, food and good friends. We are a lucky bunch.

=============================================================================================


Let's have a contest. I have three Tiki Bob necklaces that are not as perfect as I like so I'm willing to give them away and to ship them to the winners of my contests. So here are the three goofy questions. You may answer all three. The first who has the correct answer to each one wins one necklace for that question.


We were in Las Vegas for 8 days.

Question 1. We ate at one buffet each day. How many different buffets did we eat at?

Question 2. I have to avoid fat in my diet since finding out I'm "high risk" for a heart attack . So how many ounces did I lose or gain from the time we left home until the morning after we returned.

Question 3. Between 1 and 20, what did I choose as my favorite number as a grade school kid?

There it is. Post in order your three guesses by 10 am tomorrow (Saturday the 30th) and I'll announce the winners by Saturday evening.

Good luck.

================================================================

Now back to work.

Before the cold weather began Dan and I just started pouring molds. No mater what I pour I can convert it into something else. Clay is such fun.


We emptied the molds and turned them upside down to continue draining.


Opened up and removed.


After several hours I have these ready for whatever comes my way on the Wish List.


Keep from drying in Hefty bags I store them on a shelf.


The molds were put out to dry with a fan blowing on them to speed it up.


That's it for today. Tiki Hula is on his way here to help me with my computer. Cheers, Wendy

Wow, love the bowl, especially the mini Moais. Look forward to seeing the Bobs come forward as their new selves- though you might want to back the car up a bit- Dan doesn't have much wiggle room behind him as he works with those molds!

Now to win a Bob:
1. 10- since TikiTacky wrote "8," plus one for each travel day???
2 . 0
3 .7.

Belated Happy Thanksgiving!
