MaukaHale the only people with the view virus lurk on Tiki Central.

littlegiles I am very fond of hugs. We will be at Kon Tiki and Tiki Oasis this year and every one there after. I do hope to meet you in person one day. I always like to hear that viewers like my step by steps. So many of them are repetitive but once in a while I think up something new.

GROG you may not have won this contest but your new rocky moai bowl is a winner. It looks great!

Holler Waller I think KTD will be knocking on my door tomorrow or Saturday or I'll see him at Dr. Tiki Mojo's party on Sunday.
I do have number of posting contests once in a while. Hummm maybe one for when it reaches 5000, should I?

TikiAno saving on shipping was a win for me. It was also a fun contest where I didn't know the answer until it happened.

TikiHula see you Saturday and see your photos below! Thank you I do so love numbers.

muskrat thank you too. When I started this thread in the summer of 2010 I remember being so excited when I reached 10 views a day.
Now I wonder who all the people are who do look. I was at the ceramic store today and the owner said that he mentioned he knew a tiki artist and the couple said that must be Wendy. I wish I knew who it was he talked to. It's just good old fashioned fun.

little lost tiki you always have wonderful words flowing out of you just like all the creativity I see in your art. You are so dear.

tigertail777 thank you he was a very special man who we will miss very much. I plan to keep posting so we'll see if it takes me another 3 1/2 years to hit 2 million. How many tikis will I have made by then?

Even if you don't attend Tiki Kon I hope we can meet up with you. Is that a possibility?

hang10tiki alas I think I'm too old to make it to a billion. But I'll try.

Thank you ebTiki for this photo.






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

Thank you for the congratulations and kind comments. I eat them up. I appreciate all of you. You are my friends.

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

Wish List #4. The kiln is open and it's time to wash everything inside. This time Dan got to relax and Tiki Hula helped me out.

Two tubs, one to scrub in and one to rinse in. Even though Dan had used an air compressor to blow off the dust from sanding
more dust comes from the mugs shrinking as the fire.

Tiki Hula unloaded the kiln and I scrubbed everything. I'm showing lost of photos with lots of angles so you can locate your project. Not everything was dry so if you don't see it yours will be in the next load.


Filling the tubs with water.


Opening the kiln. He sees his ALL DEAD bowl.


The patch that was made for the top had a separation line that I'll try to fill. At the worst when it glazes this line will show. It will still function fine as a rum holder.


Top shelf view 1.


Top shelf view 2.


Wendy washing view 1.


Wendy washing view 2. How did that happen? Oh, I wanted you to see that I use a vegetable scrub brush and a sponge on a stick.


He's happy that using Magic Mend did fuse the head to the bowl.


Bottom shelf view 1.


Bottom shelf view 2.


I am so happy that I've finished scrubbing everything. Dan came out and carried all the trays into the house but first


a whole bunch of views. Can you find your project?




















Now with my furniture covered and more tables brought into my home "tiki factory". They will dry and when I am ready I will start to glaze them. That will probably start on April 1st. Before then I will be asking for some of you to let me know the colors you wish for on your project.


Thank you all for making my life so much fun, Wendy

I see mine...oh wait...sorry, I just see some that I want. I don't have one this time.

This next part is always my favorite, watching these amazing sculpts come to live with color.

I'm late to the program Wendy, but HUGE CONGRATS on being over one million views. That is over one million times you've added happiness to someone's day! That's a big, big thing!

Congratulations on the 1 Million views! Yeah!

And my deepest condolences on the loss of your friend Steve. It's so sad to lose a friend and it happens way too often.

I'm glad someone screen grabbed the million views- impressive!

Looks like you'll be busy glazing for a bit! Look forward to seeing the progress!

hang10tiki even I had to search for some of them and I just washed them.

littlegiles mine too but I still have work to do. It's a matter of dust. I'll explain in a bit.

DooWop it makes it fun when the numbers go up but comments here are a real joy.

LoriLovesTiki that's where I was headed because I loved junk foods. I was lucky to have volunteered for the heart study in time to work on reversing the blockages in the blood vessels to my heart. We will miss him forever.

TikiAno glazing is the scary part but the most fun too.

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

Here's a lesson in ceramics. Dust destroys glazes. One speck and the glaze crawls away from it leaving a defect. So before I glaze I have to finish all the sculpting of projects. Then I clean house really well and let the dust settle. Then I start to glaze.

Right now I have several Wish List #4 projects that didn't make it into the kiln. So I've been working to use up all the casts that I had made. None of these things are ordered but Dan has already claimed a few. I want to fill up the kiln and to fire again before I glaze.

I'll show you what I've made from the misc. casts. It's been fun and I'm getting closer. My goal is to fire by the end of next week and while the kiln cools to clean up all my clay mess and dust in the house.

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

Here's one of my fooling around projects.


I started with one of my Ren Clark heads.


I cut out the inside of the mouth which wasn't very deep.


I made a new mouth interior.


I attached it.


Smoothed and sealed it. I liked the depth.


Then I made hair on his head and carved his eyes.


Next I added Moko and turned him into a Maori warrior.











I had a fun clay day. Cheers, Wendy

WOW! He is quite impressive. I love the open mouth and the face tattoos. Ok, how cool would it be to use the mouth for a bit of flaming rum. Might make it a showstopper for a party.

Confession time....am I the only person that tries to figure out what Wendy is watching on TV while she works? HAHA

Looks like Grog had a stint on a soap opera

So everything came out of the kiln intact and in great shape! Wendy's work is impressive, but even more so when you see it grouped together. I really enjoyed unloading the kiln. And after that I picked glazes for the Al Dead bowl - woohooo!

Wendy's Maori severed head mug is so good, but just wait until you see the other one she made - it's a chicken severed head mug....no no its way cooler than that

hang10tiki I'm smiling at you.

littlegiles the flame in the mouth would be something to see. One day Tiki Hula will light up his AL DEAD bowl and he'll share photos. But first it has to be glazed.

hang10tiki I love GROG showing up on my show. He is a star.

TikiAno it is always the same show. I tape it for as much as 6 months, 5 days a week and then when the time comes to work at that table I play this show non-stop. It's good background noise.

TikiHula it was fun to see you this weekend on both Saturday and Sunday. I think I'll share some of that time tonight.

hang10tiki yep but I make him work hard for all this fun. I'm a task master.

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

Hey friends don't miss the zerostreet contest. All you have to do is check out his art and make a comment. He's going to draw three winning names. He has great prizes. I entered right after MadDogMike.

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

It's so much fun to have Tiki Hula come to play. We also go out to eat. Here's our weekend.

Dan is still getting free birthday deserts. This one is from Black Angus. They also gave him a free meal. It's worth it to sign up for the birthday clubs.


We go out to lots of meals with Mike. We found out he loves whipped cream.


We went to a vintage trailer show and saw a portable bar that was pulled by a small scooter.


Close up.


Time for a selfie.


Mike surprised Dan with a Hawaiian Eye mug for his birthday.

The rest of the Wish List #4 items had dried so it was time to sand. It's getting hot and sunny so after we brought out the


first batch the men set up a shade cover. I should have done this last summer. I was always chasing shade.


You can't see it but now I'm in the shade and ready to go to work.


I took the worst of the mugs from the time the workman spilled water in one of my trays and didn't tell me. There was no saving this one so I took a hack saw to it to cut off the damaged part.


Bottoms coming off nicely.


Next I cut off the top.


My plan was to saw it into halves however


I wasn't careful and when it came through the side I clunked the bottom and broke the girl in half just like the saw and the girl in the box trick only I killed the girl.


I got a good side with the zombie and I rounded the bottom and added hole so it can hang from a chord.


Now I started to sand the Zombie Torches and found that one bottom had a large piece of plaster imbedded in it. I have to remove it so it won't blow up. I dug it out.


Then I filled it with Magic Mend. A little at a time for the course of a few hours.


This is where I left off after a whole lot of sanding.



Saturday night it was back for more whipped cream.




=============================================================
I did a whole bunch of work today but those photos are still in the camera. Here's a party we all attended
at Dr. Tiki Mojo's home. It's his 50th birthday and we got to celebrate it with him.

Pineapple upside down cake, yummm.


Music by a Mai Kai Gent.


Tiki Hula, Mai Kai Gent and Dr Tiki Mojo.

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

That's it for tonight. See you again soon I hope, Wendy
