LoriLovesTiki they had a charity auction at the end and they piece went for hundreds of dollars.

Atomic Tiki Punk taller than a sky scrapper. He and his wife are a very cute couple. I've sent him a request for his height.

hang10tiki tiki necklace will travel is its motto.

=====================================================================
It's time to take a break from the trip to show what I'm currently working on. This it the project for Tiki Atari's kickstarter.
He designed this mug and did a 3D cast. I made a mold and cast the mugs. Now after finishing the first set of 12 I am working on the specials.

This first mug is 6/6 for a topless version.

Here is how I'm glazing it. Scary part is that all the colors will change in the kiln so I don't know until it fires if it will be as good as I hope.

Tiki Atari decided that he wanted the inside of the mug to match the hula girls skirt. These are two types of glazes so I worked to pair them up.


I started by doing the inside and bottoms of each mug.


I then used the teal blue to cover the background of the mugs.


This is a very complicated mug to glaze.




All done. Think of this, it had to be done three times for each mug. It would be so nice if glaze only took one layer.


Next I brought in all the underglazes that will not travel from where I paint them on. Regular glaze moves as it fires.


I started with the letters.


I am also using the glaze to build a letter that Tiki Atari and I missed on the mug due to a mold line.



There is so much detail to paint over and over again.


I don't know if the black will show through once the mug is fired. An underglaze such as black will show through a glaze that covers it but I think the layers of the next color will hide this black. So it's an experiment.


With the layers being repeated three times it has taken me one day to glaze the outside of this one mug.














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

Here is how he has displayed these photos on his kickstarter page.

Love that Gillman House mug! Brad is right, it is a bit Lovecraftian.

Your trip pictures are great! It pulled at the archaeologist in me to see Pompeii. It really has come a long way in clean up, I have a tourist souvenir booklet from the 30's or 40's and there was not as many streets etc to view.

In honor of your fantastic trip reports I put one together on my trip to the Egyptian grand opening since I know how much you wanted to see it. Probably not nearly as entertaining as yours, but I gave it a shot.

Looks like you two had a blast.

Tiki Shark Art thank you for the link. I listened to it last night. Now I know where Tiki Atari got his idea or maybe that was his link. I've sent him an inquiry. It does say Horror in Clay on the bottom. I'm doing my best to glaze these well.

tigertail777 I just looked at all your trip to the Egyptian Theater photos and read your words. Impressive. I love the nooks and crannies photos.

This is not to be missed.

Wendy, thanks so much for sharing your great trip pictures. It looks like you and Dan had a fantastic adventure. It's fun to see you share the tiki vibe with folks in the Mediterranean.

Tavarua Tiki it still amazes me that people do not know what a tikis until you explain it. We all have to keep working to promote tiki so it doesn't have a turn down. That's why Sven is such a hero.

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

Tiki Hula came over today to play. So I gave him a task to make glaze tests for the newest glazes I'd purchased.

First he shook them up really well.


Then on the bisque forms I'd made he did the three sets on each one. 1, 2 and 3 layers.


All done. These will fire with my next batch.


Next he glazed his Sacramento Crawl mug. He doesn't get to take it home until the crawl.
First he painted the outside in black and then scrubbed it back off leaving it in the cracks.


After he glazed the inside and top edge in clear so that it will stay white he painted the outside in Iron Ore. The black added first will still show through.


All done except for a bit


of touch up. His is the only one with fire cups inside. Sorry guys.


We also went out to lunch.


Afterwards he took us out for frozen yogurt. Yum.


Tomorrow I'm going to start showing more of our trip. I've only shown half so far! Cheers, Wendy

Wow, the latest kickstarter glazing is amazing, always so impressed with your detail- and patience. I, like Grog, have grown to hate glazing.

I've missed a few days of your thread so fun to binge read and catch up. Yes, we still have the Hot Chocolate Mix (actually, have to make a few more bags and will send them to you- unfortunately will be after the 4th of July since we're heading out of town this week).

Fun watching your trip photos- looks like an amazing trip!!!

Tiki Ano glazing is really hard. The whole time I worry that the under-glaze will not stay put and that the whole mug will come our blurry. We'll see. I can't speed it up at all. So far it takes 8 hours to glaze one mug not counting the time to do the inside and bottom. Tiki Hula got to witness that for me yesterday. 4 down and 7 to go.

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

Another day another


tour.


This time to Athens and the Acropolis.


This is the port where the ship docked and our buses were waiting.


Graffiti everywhere.


At the Acropolis we had a nice walk that went from here to


the top of the hill.


On the way we could overlook Athens.


Time to pose with Tiki Magazine.


Dan poses with the Acropolis.



A postcard view.


A view of a postcard.


One more with Tiki Magazine. Are we obsessed?


Looking over the top of the hill. The view was much like Pompeii's.


For the first time I saw my initials set in stone. But everything in Greece is stone.


Back in the bus we saw that even nice building were covered in graffiti.


We saw many of the unique shops downtown. The buss driver wouldn't stop for a shopping spree.


This is our next stop. Not bad we got our stripper show after all.


The wind was really ripping through but this was so much better than the heat that we had on so many other days.


Dan with Tiki Magazine.


The temple alone.



Our Greek bill in Euros.


The breeze under the roof was just right.


They shouldn't have cut Dan loose at the buffet when there were 4 kinds of shish-kabobs.


The sun sets as we cruise on to our next destination.



Cheers, Wendy

Atomic Tiki Punk here is the answer about Poynesian Paddy's height:

I used to tel my math students I'm 5 feet 16 inches tall, but you can just say 6' 4". Funny how things work out. When I was young I was always partial to tall slender blonds. Just my luck to fall in love with a short brunette (at least she used to be a brunette).

One more photo of the two of them lying side by side.




(: Wendy

What no jokes about the Male Stripper?

On our next stop we will visit Turkey. I didn't remember to bring my Tiki Magazine but it was such a spiritual place that it wouldn't have been right. However nothing stops me from pointing out how often I see my initials WC.

Here we go..............

A nice blurry day.


Our tour for the day.


Where our ship docked.


See Dan on the right in his white and black socks.


The first street in Turkey. An old fort on the right.


A sign that pictured our stops for the day.


On the hillside leading to the Virgin Mary's home there was her statue.


Arriving with many other buses that let


out the crowds. Here it was beautiful and shady. Of course to see Mary's house the line was long.


This is Mary's house. The darker part at the bottom was all that was left before restoration. We were in line for 45 minutes when 30 Americans shoved past and cut in front of us. Our guide stopped one woman and told her they needed to wait their turn in line. She said, "I'm fine with what I'm doing". As she went with all those who cheated I called out, "I'd like to be there for your Judgment day".


With all these people who blatantly pushed ahead of us we didn't have time to go inside. As we left the line I took this last photo. Mary's tomb is inside. She is revered as a holy person in Turkey a country 98% Muslim.


This is a place where you may collect water from the same spring that Mary used.


Here you can write a message and leave it on the wall.


Pointing the way to Ephesus the city is at the base of the hill where Mary lived.



















The last view on the way to the bus was where you went for entertainment.



Back on the bus to the next city of ruins.



We were led through the main portions of the city.



It was the apostles John and Paul who took Mary into hiding after her son was murdered. They too are buried in Turkey although pieces of them may be in many churches in other countries.


Now we were taken to a Turkish Theme Park.


The entrance.


I had a grand welcome.


We were taken to a buffet for one of our very best meals of the trip.


Once again I saw my initials. I kept telling Dan to watch for his but they never show up.


They put on a show about Cleopatra with belly dancers.






I thought maybe these guys in the gift shop were pointing the way for Dan. Grog this sure reminds me of some of your bowls and mugs.


I found that the bathrooms in their theme park are better than in Disneyland.


Our last view of Turkey before we set sail.


This was one of our best stops. I wonder what the next day will bring. Cheers, Wendy

Sorry you didn't get to go see the male strippers Wendy I'm really enjoying the photos and play by play from your trip since I may never get to see all these places in person.

Great to have you back home again though. I had fun working ceramics and going out to eat with you two as always!
mahalo for lunch!

TikiHula thank you for the Frozen Yogurt. We went back on Monday for the Pineapple Tart version. Oh it's heaven.
I learned a lot on this trip. When all my photos are up I'll critique our journey. I always miss those shows.

LoriLovesTiki Dan always stops my shopping by saying you can make one when you get home. You could too Lori!

hang10tiki where are you? I'm getting worried. We know MadDogMike is on his honeymoon but you are already married.

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

Another day is dawning.


It's time to get up and go.


Another tour of


rock piles.


Our ship docked out to sea. We took a boat to Mykonos and caught another boat to the island of Delos.


Barbara and Polynesian Paddy joined us for this tour.


This is Mykonos where we caught the next boat.


Our first view of Delos and once off the boat


we began the long hot tour.


Dan carried water in our Big Kahuna bag.


One ruin had many pottery shards that I could relate too.


Even today decorators put these indented shelves in rooms. My mom did this in the 50's.


I finally got to see a mosaic floor like those I missed in Pompeii.


Their rooms had high ceilings.


An aqueduct.


Posing and more


posing.


A long wide street though the town and it didn't have any speed bumps.


Part of the city once looked like this.


It was spread out with lots of places to go.


On our ticket were these famous lions.


When we came across them we were told these are copies as were most statues on our trip so far.


However the museum was on this island so we saw the originals.


They have found some artifacts but most things had been looted from the island.


It's fun to imagine that this man was once living on the island and wasn't from an artists imagination.


Quite a lot of work to save these upright.


Another beautiful mosaic.


Back outside we were shown where the shapes of feet were chiseled into stone. No one knows why.


It was flattering to have it mentioned that I was at the museum.


Then we did the boat trip to return to Mykonos. We were too tired to walk among the gift shops so
we returned to the ship via another boat.


We had a nice buffet dinner and relaxed.


We love the sunsets here.





Later we went to the glass show and then to bed.


Thank you for the visit. Wendy

Beautiful weather to go sightseeing. And I love watching glass blowing - must have been fun to watch it almost every day? The piece that PP and his wife won is beautiful. Wish you guys had won one too!
