OMG! Two Dan & Wendy shows in a row with no commercial interruptions. HAHA I don't know what to do with myself.

I love the glazing on that volcano and the Tapa Bob is going to so impressive!

Now that you have added more pictures since the original post I made, I have a couple comments/questions.

First...LOVE LOVE LOVE that Bumatay bowl. Seeing the glazes you used on the test tiles I can already picture it.

That Moai Mike mug is crazy! Love what you are doing with it. Does that rank as officially, your largest mug to date?

On the Tapa Bob, do you have to worry about the dust from sanding off the first layer of yellow glaze? I know you are always really careful to clean all the dust off before you start glazing and was wondering if you had to be as careful with the glaze dust. Perhaps it won't cause skipping like the clay dust will?

Volcano Bob and Tapa Bob... I don't think I could pick a favorite if I tried! They are both so great looking (not to ignore the other awesome projects you have going on as well). I think I just may have a Bob weakness. I think you may have created that weakness, Wendy! And that's a good thing!

Aloha, Wendy! I can't believe how great all the mugs are looking. I may be bias but I think my mug looks the best! You do such good work and it shows how much you love doing it.

littlegiles you make me blush. Thank you. Glaze dust isn't a problem as long as I wipe it up and it doesn't stick any where it shouldn't. It will not make glaze skips like regular dust will do. I also wipe the mug so that it either comes off or stick.

DooWop Bob is a design that grows on you. At first Dan and I thought it was an owl. Then we saw it was based on an African Mask.
Now it's just a huge part of tiki collections everywhere.

I bet you can guess that I've saved your mug and Tiki Wahini's mug to glaze last. They are the most difficult to do and I want a clean table and quiet before I start them. I'm very close now.


Moai Mike I do love doing this otherwise I'd just sit and watch TV and that's not a bit healthy. You 36 pound mug will be fun for you to drink from, a work out at the same time!


hang10tiki Sweet........ <<<<<my nickname for you!

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

Dan did some spring cleaning for an Easter get together with family.






The only wooden tiki I ever carved.



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

Now it is time to show how Tiki Hula and I glazed his Shrunken Head Shriner's AL DEAD bowl. It wasn't easy.


I started alone doing just some repair work and the black satin glazing.


The separation line where I added a piece was filled using a needle so that it "got in the groove" well.


I wiped it flat and


let it dry.


I filled each head with glaze and then poured it out 10 seconds later.


I did that with the fez too. When you glaze the insides its one more way to glue the pieces together and it looks better too.


Next I wiped off the excess on the bottom so that our names showed up better.


I painted each face with black and


after it dried I wiped it off.


Then I poured a whole jar of black satin glaze into the bowl.


I moved it around to glaze the sides and not the fez.
Then I poured it out.


I glazed the hair on each head and the bowl. Then I turned it over to do the outside of the bowl.


I glazed up and down then horizontal then up and down again.


Tiki Hula now arrived and started by glazing the Fez.


He also glazed the tassel in satin black.


He had to do all the nooks and crannies around each letter.


He glazed the chords that tied the hair. Dan took some photos of us working.


Here I'm glazing the King's Place of Refuge Goblet for Tavarua Tiki.


No more posing, back to work.


Now Tiki Hula glazed the faces a greenish color over the black I'd put in the wrinkles.


Doing glazing upside down helps spot missed areas. He glazed the stitching of the eyes and lips.


Now it is ready to dry and fire.











Top view.


Good job tiki hula. What's next?

Thank you all for the visit, Wendy

The glazing was the most fun part for me because I could actually DO it and not feel nervous about screwing it up. I couldn't say that about the little bit of sculpting I did - but hey it was my first time. And it's fun to know that you're painting it with a color that will look TOTALLY different when it's fired. That still blows my mind

Everyone's mugs came out so awesome and everyone who ordered one is going to be so happy. Wendy impresses me every time!

We had a great time as always. And we had just returned from a celebration of life service for Steve Soto. He was one of our Sacramento Ohana and the nicest guy you'd ever meet in your life. Wearing some of Steve's hawaiian shirts, his brothers told wonderful stories about his life, including how much he liked tiki, Hawaii, and collecting and wearing hawaiian shirts. He had more Munktiki fugu mugs than anyone I'd ever seen (yes, including Dan!) We will miss seeing him at all our future events, but he'll always be with us...

Everything looks great and my favorite time is almost here....when you start the glaze firings! I swear it's like Christmas morning!!!! Can't wait to see the projects in all their colorful glory.

Happy Easter to everyone who is celebrating!

TikiHula thank you for the tribute about our dearest friend Steve Soto.

See you at 11 am? We are set up for a visit to Bullet's after lunch. See I do take some time off now and then!

hang10tiki and I can't wait until he lights the heads and Fez on fire while drinking from it. However there is more to this story.

littlegiles me too. Here's insider information. Even Tiki Hula doesn't yet know it's in the kiln firing for the 3rd time as I type.

TikiAno soon, soon. He would love to move South and glaze with friends.

LoriLovesTiki Happy Easter to you as well. I love opening the kiln. Right now a batch is still firing away.

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

Update on Wish List #4.

Cippy's Maori Bob

I started by covering the face in flat black glaze.


Then I wiped it off.


Next I filled inbetween the black lines with a white underglaze that isn't supposed to move.


Next a good Tiki Bob rust red on the body.


All done and ready to dry before firing.


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


I started by covering all but the tikis in red with black specks glaze.


The Goblet didn't make it into the kiln but many projects did make it. Bottom shelf.


Top shelf. They are separated to that glazes with chunks can't spit on another mug.


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

Bullet aka kingstiedye and his wife Sandy came over yesterday. He wanted to glaze his own Wish List #4 request for Frankoma salt and peppers.

Concentrating hard.


First of three layers.


All Done but not in the firing above.


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

Now it's time to get ready to socialize and to work on more tikis. There are still many photos to post but as
far as work goes I'm down to the last two and hardest projects for the Wish List.

These last two are Tiki Wahini's Rat Fink at Disneyland and Doo Wop's Creature at Gilligan's Island. I will be working on these
this weekend.

Soon all my time will be spent on perfecting the Tiki Atari kickstarter mugs.

Cheers and happy weekend, Wendy

OOOH, a red glaze with black specs? I can't wait to see that. If I hadn't already had you choose a background for my Moai that would be a contender! LOL (Can you say indecisive?? there are so many good choices...)

Can't wait to see this batch fired.
