littlegiles I like being tiki busy.

hang10tiki oh GROG is so cute I want to rub that furry tummy. The bath is up to kingstiedye.

lunavideogames thank you. This was one that came out of the kiln without anything to touch up. I was so happy.

Tavarua Tiki kingstiedye's other name is Bullet. I had to go back and read the post, good catch. I sure am enjoying your photos. They remind me of the Tiki News magazine section showing where the issue shows up.

hang10tiki when I made the Creature of the Black Lagoon holding a Doug Horne puffer fish (with permission) it was the most difficult request at that time for the Wish List. I think that set the mood for challenging me. It's all fun.

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

Please show your photos of the Wish List projects when you have them. Thank you so much Tavarua Tiki and dartharnie.

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

I've been working every day on the kickstarter project. Soon I'll have some photos to post that show the variations I'm doing for the rewards part of Tiki Atari's project.

I have five mugs left to make. It's been a time of dedication to work for me. Far more hours than my past day jobs.

I saved some other photos to share during this time.

Mitch is a member of the band APE. He is also a professional photographer. Check out his web site when you have time.

He came to our home and spent a day taking photos of Dan's tiki collection. He said I could share these photos with everyone here.

I'm starting backwards. At the end of the day he walked through each room and took photos of individual tikis on shelves.
Here are some of his shots.

















































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

Dan mixes vintage and new. He is into perfect displays by color, height and space. I'll share more in the next few days.

Cheers, Wendy

Love the new pics. Wendy, good luck with all those mugs lining up to get worked on- hope they all cooperate.

Tavarua Tiki, congrats on the new mug- sorry I missed you guys at the Bali Hai on Monday, too many catering jobs that day (and night)! Would have loved to see the mug in person. Enjoy and Happy Birthday!

Glad we finally got to see some of Mitch's photos - good stuff.

Speaking of covered couches, did you notice Tavarua's beautiful mod couch? It's so beautiful - and white! You must not have pets?

I'll be at Caliente this year for the first time. Woohoo! Looking forward to meeting Chris and Jon. Anyone else from this thread gonna be there?

Wendy, those mugs take so much work and you only have five left to do?! Incredible amount of work

My post will be number 5001. I decided a month ago that I would give a small prize (a puffer fish necklace)to whoever did post number 5000. Well it's too funny that it's Tiki Hula who will be here on Saturday to go to breakfast with us. I think I'll just have him make his own prize since I've been teaching him the fine art of ceramics. Congratulations Tiki Hula its time for you to get back to work.

Tiki Ano work is good. I did a bit on the swap art today. Those mugs are super hard to work on but hopefully they'll be great when they are finished.

hang10tiki take good care of Tiki Hula at Caliente, keep him out of trouble...NOT! I hope you'll share lot's of photos here.
I see mugs I'd forgotten about in Dan's collection. Now he just wants me to make Wishes for him.

Tavaura Tiki I sure am loving your posts. You too have fun with Tiki Hula.

Tiki Hula it's good to have a witness to the hard work. Today I re-built 12 breasts because they just were too small.

My break is over and it's time to go back to work. Cheers, Wendy

I can't believe I'm the first to recognize the best Wendy post EVER on this thread..."today I re-built 12 breasts because they just were too small". Not counting every amazing mug her and Dan put their all into for our collecting pleasure. Just say'in.
Wendy, you and Dan will be sorely missed at Caliente this year. I hope Tiki Hula likes a good steak house cause Hang10 and I have a reserved spot at Lyon's every night at TC.

Wow Wendy- that wish list group shot is phenomenal. Just gorgeous work. If I had to pick a fav, it might be the Fink mug. There is nothing like a collection of tiki mugs, truly.

The work you are doing on the Kickstarter mugs is amazing, and humbling. I'm you took it on, and how gorgeous they are turning out is yet more testament to your amazing skill. Thank you! (Thank Dan, too!).

Jonathan

Tavarua Tiki photos below, enjoy! I PM'd Tiki Hula about Lyon's in case he didn't read your post.

Tiki-Atari thank you. One of your mugs will be glazed like the rat fink. Dan says you are welcome.

Tavarua Tiki I am saving all your photos, thank you.

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

Tiki Atari's kickstarter project. It's been my job to mold his original and to make 23 fine tuned mugs. It's a weird project because what I'm attempting to do is to make the cast look as close to his 3D printer master as possible. It takes a day to do one. Here are a few examples.

The printer didn't make one of the butt cheeks large enough.


So here's where I have added it. I also carved the background lines and pressed in all the indentations.


One of the mold lines ran over this area and a lot of detail was lost.



I add suction cups, some so tiny that I use a wooden skewer to sculpt them.


Another mold line runs over the sunken city ruins.


There is a lot of detail to add back into this area.


To cast this master I had to fill in all the deep or undercut portions.


I dig out the letters so that they will show up better.


I use a wet brush to smooth them.


When I finish a set I line them up and go over them again to make sure I didn't miss anything.
What I found yesterday was that all the left breast had shrunk more than the right as they firmed up.
So one by one I added clay and


built them all back up to double D's.


They are back in plastic bags so that they will firm up slowly and this new clay will stick.


I number all the bottoms and I have been allowed to put my name on the bottoms of those I work on. This is entirely Tiki Atari's design. I'm just hired help.


This is a run of 6 with breasts on the half woman and half creature part of the sculpt.


They show up on the standing woman and the diving woman.


I have four to change with carving and 1 to do with special glazing.


I better get busy.

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

Tomorrow I'll put up more Mitch Tobias photos. Cheers, Wendy

Wendy, I don't stop in here every day (busy with wedding plans and such). I stop by about one a week so I can be COMPLETELY OVERWHELMED by what you have done!
The Al Dead Bowl is one of my most favorite pieces by any artist in the past few years
Isn't that crackle glaze fun? I also like the swirled colors of the blue flame.
For some reason Hang10's ginormous pendant reminds me of a PNG crocodile
Love the colors on the Bumatay Fish mug with the blues and oranges
Your attention to detail on the Atari kickstarter mug is AMAZING!!!

See ya again in about a week

Wow you miss even half a day here and you miss a lot! Won a contest I didn't even know about - breasts are flying everywhere - a beautiful chocolate brownie and even more beautiful Honaunau mug - steak houses - Witco wood - mass hysteria!

So much fun but I can't keep up
