LoriLovesTiki thank you. Oh darn, I left off the stinger!

littlegiles that reminds me I have a ticket to check. When I get on Tiki Central and find that someone took the time to write a note here I feel like I won. Thank you.

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

Here are a few more creations that I made a few weeks back.

Tiki Hula will be here in a few hours. On one of his last visits he asked if his Sacramento Crawl mug could have an addition.
Since he was here to oversee the work I granted his Wish. He and Dan poured mugs on that day.


I made a disk of sticky clay and cut it in half.


I attached half of the disk and poked in my thumb to make a fire pocket.


I added some slip to make some extra soft sticky clay.


I ran this clay around the bottoms of each pocket to give them more strength.


His modified crawl mug is drying with the rest. One day it will have dual flames.

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

I ran out of my sea creature necklaces so I cast a few and cleaned them up.

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

It's time to do some projects with my Moai cast. I cleaned one up and cleaned up a wide bowl.


After that I tuned the bowl over and put the Moai on the bottom and outlined it with a tool.


Next I cut out a section of clay within that outline using my label scrapper.


All done. I left it deep at the top so that this bowl has a natural opening for a hanger if it goes on the wall.


I put sticky clay all over the back edge of the Moai and pressed him down over the opening.


I used a brush to remove the excess clay.


Sealed to the bottom of the bowl it was OK to


turn it over and to spread around the clay inside the opening.


Now I turned it back over and used sand paper to add texture to the Moai.


I also used this new tool.


Using this same tool I ran it around the outside of the bowl over and over again to add texture.


Done.


Now it was ready to dry.

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

Wishing you all a fun weekend with family and friends, Wendy

I was thinking I'd leave it sitting on the bar and use an 18 inch straw so I don't catch my face on fire. Can't wait!!

Mahalo, Wendy for granting my wish

FIRE FIRE FIRE...mmm....that'll be cool....more fire.

zerostreet ceramics are hard work but oh so fun. You know what I mean now that you do it too. Big smile.

Loki-Tiki Tiki Hula is a photographer and one day there will be lots of his projects on fire.

hang10tiki I'm going to have to try to replicate that photo when it's fired. Good one, he loved it.

hang10tiki looks like his ears will catch fire it he doesn't use a straw! Thank you for the fun photos.

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

Another productive clay day at the fun house using lots of glaze colors. But I'm still catching up showing you projects that were made a while back.

The Moai always casts as a wall hanging so I have to cut off all the excess clay.


I also add some detail to the arms etc.


Once it is ready I use sticky clay and seal it to the mug. The bottom of the Moai is open so that air can escape.


Large grain sand paper for texture.


Next I carved the whole mug with bamboo and added clay at each joint.


Then using a tool I carved in texture behind all of the bamboo.


All done and time to let it dry.


This one is much lighter that Moai Mike's rocky version.

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

Now it's time to read more of the book the Historian. I was surprised when it turned out to be a book about Vampires, but it fun.

Cheers, Wendy

Love the bamboo carvings on the Moai mug. It looks like he is emerging out of a bamboo grove.

hang10tiki thank you very much.

littlegiles I don't know if there is any bamboo on Easter Island but I hope there is because it's beautiful. Thank you.

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

Just as I have been posting left over images here while I glaze the Wish List I was making these things from left over casts.
So I had four Moai that needed to be used but I didn't have a bowl for them. So I decided to make them fancy and put in holes for a chord. So they can be wall hangings or really big necklaces.

I brought them in from the garage and cleaned off the excess clay.


I fine tuned them adding larger arms and hands.


Then I let them sit out overnight.


Then I started to carve them one by one.








All done and posing.








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

Thank you all for getting back to me with your glaze choices. I'm making a lot of headway now. Cheers, Wendy

They should have grown bamboo on Rapa Nui. Seems like no matter how much you cut it down, it always grows back quickly

Wendy, those moai carvings are so cool - never seen anything like them!

Wendy (and Dan) - Friends of mine have been telling me to check out this website, so I finally logged on and started exploring. I came across your thread and couldn't stop reading. Thanks for all the updates here - I look forward to seeing more photos of your work (and works in process) as you post. You have a new fan!

Holy texturing! Haven't checked in in a few days, so lots to look at. Love the Moai Bowl, and the carved Moais are phenomenal. Can't wait to see how you glaze those, especially over the texture on their bodies!

TikiHula, dig the flame holders in your mug!
