Wendy, I read your posts and every time I do, I smile big and think what a lovely person you are! You and Dan live in your Tiki house and create mugs and both of you are always smiling. I know you work so hard on your mugs and art to make them perfect for everyone. You make dreams come true for people. You are like a little fairy godmother.




I couldn't agree more. Thank you so much for all your hard work, Wendy!

kingstiedye I'd say looking forward to your visit but you've already come and gone!

littlegiles new photos of Viking Bob tomorrow. I have others to post tonight. I did add a few embellishments. I'm glad you liked the head too.

kingstiedye you'll have to see what I did to Viking Bob tomorrow.

hang10tiki I like entertaining you because you entertain us all right back.

lunavideogames do people really drink out of these? Oh yes Chippy does, I've see photos of him with his Chippy Bob in use. I have so much fun dressing Bob up.


hang10tiki fun, I wonder what it tastes like.

TikiAno I do have metal glaze.

Tiki-Atari we cast a kickstarter mug each day. I managed to trim the tops are remove some mold lines today on 6 of them. On step at a time. It's good to see you stop by here. It was fun to read the older post too and have you agree. I'm smiling.

kingstiedye it was great to see you and to have a fun play day. I loved going off my oil free diet. Tiki Hula will be so sad to have missed this day but he's coming here Sunday. I found my missing camera battery.

littlegiles my camera was dead at the Buffet but I did get one with his prize mug.

kingstiedye all you men have made my day. Where are all the women?

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

The winner of the 1,000,000 views contest kingstiedye. I won too because I didn't have to ship it, instead we took him to lunch.



Thank you all for entering the contest. The next contest will be when I get close to 5000 posts.

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

UPDATE ON WISH LIST #4

Just a reminder that the reason I don't take any "up front" money is because I always work at my own pace which is 7 days a week from morning until night. Even though I work this hard things take a long time from start to finish. I will always post my in-progress photos and one day your project will be finished. Thank you all for your patience.


It's been raining in California. We came out and found that the cover we put up had been collecting raindrops.


I got Dan a broom to push the water out.


The bisque fired Wish List projects second load had cooled and I opened the kiln.


This close up is for Tavarua Tiki.


I started unloading the kiln onto clean trays to transport to my washing station.


I think these photos show some projects that I haven't shared yet. Oh well, I show them being made on another day.


Dan filled the wash and rinse tubs.


I started unloading the lower level.


Not a single thing cracked or exploded. I had another good firing.


Once everything was out Dan disapeared


and I went to the tubs to start to wash and scrub.


Tavarua Tiki's Place of Refuge King's Goblet.


Close up.


Moai Mike's mug.


When I finished Dan came back and


carried them to the dining room table to dry.


I covered them with plastic table clothes to keep dust from landing on them. Now they wait until I'm ready.


Every single Wish List Project has now been made and bisque fired. The next step will be to glaze them. I still need to finish casting and carving the Sacramento Crawl mugs and also to cast the kickstarter mugs.

Once these have been cast I will clean up all the mess associated with these projects and I'll start to glaze. So maybe two more weeks until then.

Thank you always for the visit, cheers, Wendy

I always do my best to drink out of them, Wendy.

I think things need to be used for their purpose, otherwise they get sad.

I will have to post pics of me and others with your mugs.

Wendy, I'm still amazed at the amount of work that you and Dan do. There are nights that I get tired just reading about it.

Kingstiedye, awesome win on that mug! Congrats!

The "Place of Refuge" goblet just blows me away everytime I see it. I can't wait to see that one get glazed up. Beautiful piece.

Wendy! That is not a tiki mug! A tiki pipe maybe. A tiki cylinder maybe. A tiki chamber maybe. It is too big to be just a mug! Thank you so much! It will make me think of you and your beautiful mana always.

Wendy,

I am always amazed at your skill and creativity. It is such a treat to see all the wonderful designs and creations you keep coming up with.

Keep up the good work, and as a 1/4 Norseman I dig your Viking Bob.

lunavideogames I love photos of owners with my mugs. I never get to see enough of those kinds of photos. Please do post some.

littlegiles thank you it was a challenge. Gecko has made some beautiful full size mugs with these two tikis. $650 a pair.

Moai Mike when I added all those rocks it did grow to huge proportions. You'll build muscles if you ever drink from it. I'll want a photo of that for this thread!

hang10tiki he is just such a cutie. Thanks for helping him out.

Chippy it's fun seeing your posts of your Tiki Bob collection on facebook. I tried to copy one of your photos and it blocked the "steal". Maybe you could post a photos here, hint hint.

VampiressRN he resembled that remark.

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

Today we will not leave the house for any reason. We will work tiki starting as soon as I finish this post until the sun sets in the East. Tricky I meant West.

Here's the photo of the finished Viking Bob mug.

I took the advice of:

Littlegiles by adding beard and shield

kingstiedye by adding a ponytail

tiki Ano by using a metal glaze in the future.

and I ask Chippy should that hair and beard be blond?


First I needed to finish off the hat. I used my scrapper to flatten the surfaces and to reduce them to make enough space for glaze.


Next I carved out the clay from the inside of the helmet so that it wouldn't crack.


I smoothed the inside with a wet brush.


I carved a straw hole.


All done with the additions suggested by my friends.











Does he pass inspection and will he be added to the fighting clan?

Cheers, Wendy

Bob the Viking looks perfect- the beard is fantastic. Look forward to seeing it bisqued and glazed.

Moai Mike's mug is definitely a vessel. A large vessel. A very, very large vessel. Wowzers. A good looking gigantic vessel.
