WHAT MONTH AND DAY WILL THIS THREAD REACH 1,000,000 views.

The first correct answer will win a slightly imperfect Zombie Torch open top mug. It has some glaze that ran onto the bottom. I It's a 1/1 glaze and hand painted enamel.








This is based on the menu for Zombie Village Oakland California. Long gone and missed.

Good Luck, Wendy

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

What's fun for me is that I don't know the answer. I too have to wait and see the same as you all do. When I hit one million I will then check this list and reward the winner who nails it or is the closest to the right day.


Dates taken so far.

I just brought forward the list of entries so far. It's really fun for me to see your names come up. Three more hours before I shut it down and we all wait to see when I hit one million and we find out who won.
====================================================================================

I have been making things to use up casts that I made ahead for the Wish List #4. I need the space for the Crawl mug and Kickstarter mugs I'm casting now.

So today I got out some Tiki Bob's and a Bowl. I cleaned the bowl and Bob's and outlined his face. I cut a hole in the shape of the bowl in Bob and added sticky clay.


I pressed him into place.


I used a brush and cleaned off the rest of the clay.


I did this four times.


Top view.


I added coconut texture to the bowl.


Then I carved rings around Bob.


Three eyes added. All done and ready to dry.

========================================================================
I'm so happy you all like the hula girl in the tapa bowl. GROG's so young! Thank you all.

Tick Tock or is it Toc? What I mean to say is that midnight is approaching. Cheers, Wendy

littlegiles thank you very much.

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

My goal with contests is to inspire everyone to continue to stop by here and to write comments when they like something. This has been a real treat for me.

We started the contest on Sunday the 16th of March. My dad and my sister were born on March 16th. It's a special day in our family.

The contest started at 983,097. We haven't hit 1,000,000 yet. I'll keep watching.


Thank you all for entering. Cheers, Wendy

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

When I cast these sea creatures I cleaned them up so that they were ready to use.


I didn't need them so I've now added holes and I'll make them into necklaces.


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

Huge step forward for Wish List #4. Not all but may of the pieces have dried so it was time to sand them and to load the kiln.

I can't sand in the house, it's bad enough that I'm sculpting in there. Clay dust is deadly.

I started by bringing out the first load to sand.


These are the tools I use to sand and fine tune each cast.


I started by outlining the faces on the two Suffering Bastard Bob's. I had forgotten to do that before they dried.


Here's one done and one to go. This is the time to make sure everything is as good as it can be.


Those have been finished. When I sand I always have a soft sponge matt under my work. If you don't do this the clay can chip on the bottom edges.


As I finish a tray Dan gets them and used the air compressor to blow off the dust.


Keep dust out of your kiln because it can ruin pieces you are glazing. We always vacuum the kiln after bisque firing is finished.


I use my label scraper tool to fine tune the hats. I have to make sure that I've left enough room for the glaze that will be added to the mug. Also when the clay is dry it is easier to make a flat surface. Now the hats will fit better.


Each time Dan finished blowing off the dust he would put the piece in the kiln.


Back and forth. unfortunately as I sanded and he loaded I missed a photo of when this level was filled. I'll get that after firing.


Top level is filled.


They can touch during the bisque fire. They do not stick. When they are glazed they have to be apart.


Some things were so thick they are still drying. Example Moai Mikes rocky Moai mug. Also some things were not completed yet. There will be more sessions like this ahead.

Thanks for the visit. Cheers, Wendy

Gosh, miss the list for a few months and everything just gets crazy!

A kiln O fun is right! I got to help unload it on Sunday and I couldn't stop complimenting Wendy on how amazing her work is.

And the Al Dead bowl was in there too - did it survive or did it crack in half or even explode into a million pieces!? Stay tuned to find out....

I'm away from this thread for a couple of days and I miss a contest!!!! Boo-hiss!

We're in the middle of gutting our kitchen (yuck) which keeps me busy and I've been busy making movies with the students at school so I haven't had a chance to visit. It's good to see you are as busy as ever!

A dear friend of ours has passed away. He was here on Tiki Central using his real name Steve Soto.
He was kind and loving. Dan first met him in high school and re-connected through tiki. I wish you
all could have known him. Someone posted this photo of him with the first ceramic I ever made.
It brought back a lot of fun memories.



=================================================================================================================================
Life goes on...


littlegiles all crazy fun. I work more hours retired!

hang10tiki this is step two. Make em, bake em, glaze em, bake em and check em and ship em. Lot's left to do.

ebtiki got the first Tiki Bob bowl I ever made. Dan came up with his own design which will replace this one on his shelf. I'll share it when it's ready.

TikiHula Dan's still happy how you helped me while he played records.

LoriLovesTiki sorry Lori. At least you'll have a great kitchen as your prize for all the hard work.

Polynesian Paddy March 24 so sorry but the contest closed Monday night. Now we are waiting to see who wins. Thanks for trying.

============================================================================================================================
Today I started a South Pacific Bowl. I had attached a Frankoma War God to the bowl but it didn't look right so I cut it off.

That left me with a War God with no backside. So I built a wall across the bottom and then put in a clay plug which I squished around to make a floor. This will hold a tea light.


Then I cut out the eyes.


Cleaned up and ready to dry.


I'll eventually show the bowl from which this was removed.

I'm taking the rest of the night off. I worked from 8 am until 7 pm and I'm beat.

Cheers, Wendy
