hang10tiki you are tooth funny!

Tiki Hula these photos are for you to think about tonight. Tomorrow we tackle all the problems.

While Tiki Hula was traveling this week I did some work on his bowl. I had his permission. I got to the place where it will now take two of us to continue and he'll be here tomorrow.

To start I needed to sculpt a third head. Dan caught me in the act.


This is really sticky clay placed on a hard ball of clay from the week before.


I just keep adding layers and smoothing them onto the face.


None of the faces have been shrunken but they will be tomorrow.


I caught Dan in the kitchen.


Next up an ear.


A good start and I'll need a matching one on the other side.


Front on. Moe Larry and Curly.


When I did this angled view I noticed that the guy in the middle was missing his ears so I added them.


Now it was time to hollow out the heads. Or as the head hunters would say, remove their brains.


I did the tops first.


It's a lot of clay that needs to come out of these heads.


I just listen to TV and slowly dig it out.


I did some more additions to the faces.


Now it was time to stop and wait until Tiki Hula is here and instructs me as to what he wants. Then we'll shrink them.


I uncovered his volcano for awhile. I hope we can flip this bowl tomorrow. The volcano needs to be thinned from the inside.


That's all for tonight. I hope we get a lot done tomorrow. I have started other Wish List Projects and I'll post photos soon.

Cheers, Wendy

Tavarua Tiki Happy New Year. Thank you, I live for comments like yours and

hang10tiki's photo-shopped pictures that we all adore.

LoriLovesTiki lololo and Happy New Year.

Holler Waller Aumakua mug was one that he had never even seen before so it made his day. Thank you so much. I love these swaps.
====================================================

Thank you everyone for the notes and visits. I know that the holidays are not over and that everyone is very busy. It means a lot to me that you come here.

Today Tiki Hula came at 11 am and didn't leave until 8:30 PM. We spent the day either eating or working clay. I'm too tired to post more than one set of eating photos. Here they are.


This sure reminds me of the story of The Three Bears.


Both Tiki Hula and I burnt our tongues but Dan's soup was just right!

Have a great night, Wendy

Haha. It looks like we're going to finish the whole bowl in one sitting. Lots of yummy Hot & Sour soup to enjoy tomorrow along with excellent walnut prawns. Can't wait

Wow we got a lot done today on the bowl. Wendy will probably post photos tomorrow. I'm amazed at her sculpting talent and how patient she is. I'm having a great time helping her make my dream bowl. While we were working I confessed that I'm a long time pessimist learning to be an optimist. Then the subject of nuclear power plant disasters came up and I think I took two steps back in my training
But most of our conversation is upbeat and lively

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and has a fun New Year's Eve.

hang10tiki my wish came true. Thank you always.

TikiHula the planet has a lot of problems. The worst is that there are not enough tiki bowls. Tiki Hula designed an over the top bowl and it's beginning to look like we can make it.

Here are a lot of photos of his dream bowl.

These photos will show that the volcano is a Fez. So we started on the Fez designs by using a vintage Fez vase from southern California.


One piece at a time.


Each is made from very soft sticky clay.


They are made thick and can be sanded down to the appropriate thickness later.


Getting them on and every edge sealed to the Fez without air pockets is the challenge.


This is also a shrunken head bowl. So Mike came up with the title AL DEAD for the Fez.


So we counted letters and found the center.


I used this as a guide as I sculpted and


placed the letters on the Fez.


One more letter to go.


The A was fun and fancy.


The front is done for now and will need to dry and equalize with the rest of the bowl.


Mike is happy here. Then I told him we needed to flip the bowl. The center is thick and heavy. The bowl is not and it is still wet so we can attach the heads. Could we do it without it collapsing?


One last look before we risk it all.


Together we managed to side the bowl onto a sheet of plastic on top of a board. I put plastic on top of the bowl and put a board on top of that. I picked it all up and with his hands ready to catch if I slipped I flipped that whole mess.


Taking off the board we could see into the Fez. The bowl did not collapse!


I begun the task of carving out some clay to make the walls of the Fez thinner.


Once the walls were right I carved our names on the bottom of the bowl along with the copy-write date.


Now it was time for Tiki Hula to carve the threads into the tassel.


The tassel will be part of a rum fire experience. A design that he is perfecting with this bowl.


What do you all think of a Fez volcano? I think he came up with a very cool design.

Now it's back to work on my list. He'll be back tonight to do more work on this bowl.

Cheers and Happy Holiday, Wendy

PS thank you again hang10tiki I just can't get enough of your creations because they are so fun

Great photoshop Hang10. Hmmmm....maybe Dan and Wendy will adopt me and then I can sleep in the Jungle Room every night!
Yesterday Dan gave me a CD he engineered with makes you feel like you're in the jungle with tigers and elephants and everything. The sound quality is awesome - I even feared for my life a couple of times while listening to it!

You are right Wendy, the world does need more tiki bowls. They are a symbol of happiness and togetherness (whoa, that's too deep for a Monday...)

TikiHula it's pretty dangerous in the tiki jungle room. If you rolled over and bumped a mug you'd have Dan to answer too and that's scary!

hang10tiki a Fez Volcano Shrunken Head bowl. This is a self made swap. Tiki Hula is trading his computer skills in exchange for learning and making tikis. He keeps adding up the hours on this bowl to see how many days he has to spend training Dan and I on the computer. I've got hours in the bank!

==============================================================
The day began with adjustments to one head. The features were to refined compared to the other two.


Working hard and loving every minute.


With all three heads sculpted the necks needed to be cut off. Yikes!


So these are the faces that will need to be shrunk.


Tiki Hula said he's satisfied with how they turned out.


Since they were hollowed out the tops need to be filled so that they are cups for rum fires. So I smoothed a sticky clay plug into the hole.


Next I filled the head over and used a brush inside to smooth and remove air bubbles from the plug.


Next Tiki Hula studied the bowl to see where he wanted the heads placed.


We started with the head in the back centered to the front of the Fez. I cut off a wedge of clay from the back of the head.


I checked the fit and removed more clay


then I added sticky clay back into the same area to use as glue.


I lowered and pushed forward the head until it was in place. Tiki Hula guided the positioning.


I smoothed the sides and top and removed excess sticky clay.


We did the same for the second head


and then the third head.


Dan is checking to see how we were coming along.


The end of this day has come. There is a lot to do yet. The hair, the shrunken faces. which will add more hours into my trade bank.


One view looking down on top of the AL DEAD bowl.


Tiki Hula will return tomorrow for more work.

Cheers, Wendy
