Wendy, The Viking Bob is another one of your masterworks! just great.

(But allow me to insert a bit of historical fact, the Vikings never put horns on their helmets
this is one of those inaccuracies from the movies) just keeping it real.

TikiAno glazing the ultimate challenge. Viking Bob thanks you, he is a fahionista. Moai Mike is lifting weights to prepare for his mug.

littlegiles he's all set to do battle.

Atomic Tiki Punk no kidding? When I googled for Viking hair I got Tom Sellek (sp?) so it could have been worse. As it stands he's just another horney guy.

VampiressRN we love you!

kingstiedye way to go Bullet.

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

So many photos so little time. So here's a project I sculpted awhile back. It was a Dan request for work provided.

Introducing The Volcano Tiki Bob bowl and all the steps it took to put it together.

I choose a bowl that had the size necessary for the addition of a volcano. I cleaned up the edges.


At thrift stores I buy table top whatchamacallitz that rotate and put something waterproof on top. These are larger than professional turntables and work well for big ceramic projects.


I needed a hollow base for the volcano so I sacrificed a Big Bob mug.


I cut a hole in the center of the bowl and a corresponding hole out of the Bottom of the Bob mug.


I set Bob in the bowl and then cut off the top of his head at the height of the rum cup he would need for flames. The disk I cut out of his bottom fit nicely for the top.


I used sticky clay to glue that top on and then added it to the sides and bottom of the rest of the mug.


Now it is ready to stick to the bottom of the bowl.


I smoothed the bottom with some slip to remove tiny air bubbles.


I stuck it in place.


I built up more sticky clay on the sides.


I built up the sides so that there is a rum pocket on top. Now put into a plastic bag he rested overnight.


Then next morning it was time to work with the small Tiki Bob statues that go on the outside of the bowl.


I carved around their faces and


then I carved the rings.


I tried to space them equally around


the bowl. I never make it perfect because I'm always a bit off...


I cut clay off the back of a small Bob in the angle of the bowl. I start small and slowly cut away clay until it fits.


I add sticky clay, carefully to not introduce air pockets.


One by one they are all added on.


The bowl is done for now.


I let it sit over night and then I flip it over and make the sticky clay smooth on the inside of the volcano.


Now he'll be allowed to dry very slowly so nothing cracks. The volcano is very thick so it takes weeks for it to dry. I take it out of the plastic bag for an hour each day and then back inside. Before bisque firing I will carve the rings on each Bob back towards the bowl where the attachment messed them up.

Dan's happy with the way his bowl shaped up. It is the first volcano bowl I have made where the volcano is attached.

Cheers, Wendy

Love the Bob Bowl and the Viking Bob is over he top as well. So glad to hear the pieces in the latest kiln made it out safe and sound. Place of Refuge goblet is looking fantastic!!!!

TikiAno I like your thread.

muskrat I made your Kiki's version crawl mug yesterday. I'll post photos. You can't have it until the crawl. I also put
Kiki's #1 on the bottom. Do you want to give us your mug spot on the regular run?

ebtiki thank you Eric.

Tavarua Tiki have you seen all the Creature of the Black Lagoon heads on facebook? Look at David Nelms posts. Glad you like your Goblet etc. Glad we got back in touch.

hang10tiki I've never lit a volcano so I'll have to have Tiki Hula help with that when it's all done.

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

muskrat your name is the only one today that doesn't highlight for needed spell check.

I made the changes you requested to your Sacramento Crawl Mug yesterday. Here it is...

First I filled in the lettering with sticky clay.
After this was done it sat over night in a plastic bag to firm up and equalize.


I sanded a plastic stick into two width sizes that I could use to carve out the letters.


Large size for Kiki's and smaller for Tiki Village so that it could all be seen at the same time.


I added #1 Kiki's to the bottom since it is not part of the regular run of mugs for the crawl.


I carved the background for the coconut and


finished off the tiki.


The G in Village is larger than it looks in the photos. I'll sharpen the edges when it's drier.
====================================================================================================

Awhile back I used up some more casts leftover from the Wish List #4.

I made a another Flame Bob this one with a flame lid. I started with a cast ornament that fit and I carved flames on the sides of Bob.


I turned the ornament into a flame and finished the flames. I did flame eyelashes and flames at the corners of his mouth.


All done.




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

Update on the Kickstarter project for Tiki Atari. I am lining up the mugs to work on in my kitchen. I've run out of space anywhere else.


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

hang10tiki after you posted a photo of GROG sneaky peeks over the edge of the roof he won't come down, he just sits up there all day. I had Dan whack his bottom too.


Happy April Fools Day everyone! Wendy

Being off dealing with real life for to long, cause I come back and see this great picture and quote about Grog's butt and shot coffee out my nose, all down my shirt and all over my keyboard. Best start to an April Fool's in a long while.

Wendy love all the flames and volcanoes...Makes me antsy to see glazes go on.
