Tikiwahini very cool, thank you. I sure hope you'll post a photo of you with the mug.

hang10tiki I hope you like the green I used on your Moai. It was the same shade as the Creature but had some rocky spots.

TikiAno next up will be the next mug I make or the swap art. Every day I work on one kickstarter mug. They have so much fine detail that to take them up a notch (I hope) I have to put in the hours. Same thing for 23 days.

littlegiles good information. I thought maybe he is a vampire and I caught it.

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

Miss Monk-ii's up next with her Bumatay fish with fins mug.


Side.


Ocean back.


Miss Monk-ii's next wish was for a Zombie Torch mug in light green





Moai Mike's mug weighs like it is made of rocks. Good to exercise when lifting it to drink!









Mondo-by-the-bay had five orders.

The first was a Volcano Bob with palm trees and a small tiki on the back.








Next was a King's Goblet. My photos are funky, it looks much better in real life.






This is Tapa Bob and the colors are deeper in real life. More yellow and darker brown.








This is Drunken Bamboo Bob. Even his eyes are off.






Last is a Bumatay Bowl with fins.







Tavarua Tiki's King's Place of Refuge Goblet. It's always a challenge to copy something rather than to just make it.
There were a lot of details to these tikis.








These photos show the real color better.





Tiki Wahini's Rat Fink in Disneyland took me back to jr. high where I was obsessed with carving these in soap.













VampiressRN's Zombie Torch was the last I made for this Wish List.




All three together.





WaikikianMoeKele (I have the spelling memorized) had this Hello Kitty made as a gift.






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

I kept everything until the entire Wish List #4 was completed. I did this so that I could take a group photo.

Tiki Hula helped me.

I figured out that putting them on the stairway was the best way to display them. However the walls showed a lot.
Tiki Hula said, I'll fix that with photoshop.

So after the photo shoot Dan boxed up all the tikis to ship.


Horrors the next day I found that I'd missed putting Kele's statue on the stairs. I thought this photo was all I could do.




But NO! Tiki Hula to the rescue. He took the little statue and added it to the final photoshopped picture.







Thank you Tiki Hula for the photo and thank you all for the projects that kept me busy for so many months.


Until next time, Wendy aka danlovestikis

How big can it be before it's no longer considered a mug?

Ok, that is just a whole lot of AWESOME!

I got my true wish and that was to hang out with good friends and create fun stuff! My second wish was to see the ceramic making process first hand. I'm still surprised at how much work it is.

Even after seeing everything in person and then looking at all the photos here, it's hard to pick a favorite. Of course the Al Dead bowl is something I'll enjoy every day. Working with Wendy on it is a true highlight of my life that I will cherish forever.

But all of Wendy's work is equally special because of who she is. She puts her passion and positive energy into every piece she makes. It's a win-win for everyone

Big mahalo again Wendy.

GROG just depends on the drinker. Remember when a woman's highheel was good for champagne?

GROG ah but when I think of you I always think of your smile.

LoriLovesTiki you are so welcome.

lunavideogames as long as I have messages to read here I'll keep making tiki art. These messages keep me going.

TikiHula - well that brought tears to my eyes. See you later for another fun play day. I have new pinstripping brushes
but we may just use regular brushes. This will be a first for me.

Friends today we will attempt to paint the lettering on his AL DEAD Fez.

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

I love coincidences. They are almost a hobby for me. I watch for them to occur. Today I had a good one.

Along with the Wish List I made things for Dan and just some extras to sell. One thing I made started out
as a Coconut Bob bowl but evolved into a Bob Honey Pot.




When I posted it here hang10tiki ran into a Frankoma honey pot in an antique store. I had never seen this and was surprised at how much they looked alike. Of course there's didn't have Bobs.






Today starts the Western Festival in Elk Grove where we live. Each year the parade starts off in our neighborhood so we go for a walk to check it out.

Today we were too early so we headed home. On the way there we came across a garage sale. They had Frankoma pottery for sale and I bought the honey pot to go with my Bob Bowl. Imagine that!





I still have 50 things I've made to glaze but first I have to finish the kickstarter project for Tiki Atari and to also glaze 50 Sacramento Crawl mugs. This will be a busy summer.

Thank you all for the visits and comments. Cheers and happy weekend, Wendy

Sandy is going to check out her mug. They are beautiful....as is all of your work. I will link up with you to send money and don't worry about mailing them, we will get them at the crawl.

Awesome stuff Wendy! Moai Mike's mug and Drunken Bamboo Bob stand out in particular!

Thought of you and Dan last night, we went to "our" Cuban spot!

hang10tiki - You have good genes Jon. Thank you for all the fun photos. I hope you inspire others to do the same.

VampiressRN sounds like a plan. We love the crawl, thank you for keeping it going.

zerostreet thank you Robert. I just posted on your thread and told you to do exactly what you mentioned here! We artists read each others minds.

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

By the way it is OK with me if Wish List final photos are used on facebook. I do love photos with you all with your piece best.

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

Our plans for the AL DEAD bowl changed. Tiki Hula got to Mahalo Tiki's two hours early. He waited one hour and then read the hours of operation on the door. Oops. So he came to our home. After we had lunch we spent a few moments at the Elk Grove
Western Festival.

There was a small time atmosphere and lot's of booths.


We walked around the lake


and saw baby ducks.


Then we stopped for ice cream, just for Mike. Dan and I are still being good.


Now it was time to get back to our work day.

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

Tiki Hula wanted to work so I gave him the next glazing test for the Sacramento Crawl mug to do.

First I had him spray the inside and outside with water to start the capillary action to hold the glaze on tighter.


Next he painted three layers on the tiki with a small brush.


Dan played music for us while we worked.


The front is all done.


The back lettering is all done.


I took over for a few moments to use a wet washcloth to rub off the excess glaze.


Working on one mug a day to perfect it the best I can.


It was hard being outside working on a kickstarter mug for Tiki Atari so we moved back inside. Tiki Hula painted 3 layers around the rim of the coconut.


Next I had him pour in the jar and swirl it around until all the inside was covered three times with the rotation.


The layers of glaze around the rim act like a barrier to keep the glaze from spilling out.


The last step was three layers of glaze on the outside of the coconut.




This test is different because the black was added first and covered with the brown glaze. If the black shows up this is how all the mugs will be done.

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

It's in the 70's here today I hope you all have a good weather day. I'll back to work on the kickstarter mugs and a few other small projects.

Cheers, Wendy

Wendy, the package arrived Friday afternoon right before my oldest got home. My grandfather and my youngest pleaded to open theirs now, they were so excited. I waited to open mine after school. I'm glad I did because she was glowing.

This little cutie has been wearing the float all weekend but didn't want to wear it for the picture...sigh...

Dad grabbed a Signed Mantle ball and one of favorite cards to flank the Yankee's Bob

I found a spot in the Master Bedroom...

and snapped this right before falling asleep.


Mom taught me to fill the house with things made with love.
Thank you. So much.

Derek

So many incredible mugs coming out of this thread!
it's like the magic thread, I guess it's because of this magic lady and her magic husband that make all this possible. Cheers guys, keep up the great work and inspiration, to so many great folks. All the best to all of you guys
