So much detail in each of those mugs. It just amazes me. I think the Tapa is my favorite, but you know me, I love all that you do.

The gillman glazes are INCREDIBLE! That is some serious dedication - I could never stay focused that long! Can't wait to see them after firing.

It was such a treat seeing you at Tiki Kon - mahalo for stopping by and chatting! Loved hearing about your adventures and talking clay. You need to sail to Hawaii!

Henrik "VanTiki"

TikiAno if it all works out then it was worth the work. If the clear glaze makes it run then it will really be a
Horror in Clay!

TikiHula
You wrote, "Fire Fire Fire!!!" and look what happened.


littlegiles thank you. I'm fond of tapa too.

hang10tiki you too? Here it comes again.


TikiAno you get this too.


Beachbumz it all comes down to Pure Brilliance the best clear glaze by Duncan. There other clear glaze makes under-glaze run. Also I did the three layers but with so many areas to do I could have missed some. So this first time in the kiln is a check firing.

You made a good guess. We hope to see you and Rob in 2015.

VanTiki I think we had the best visit yet. You and your wife are so athletic. I had no idea. We loved the mug and necklaces. One day we will visit.

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

I am so happy that I did complete the last two mugs and they are in the kiln as I type. Here's the final run of photos until they come out of the "Fire, Fire, Fire!


Starting on the 2nd to last mug. This one is like the Tiki Farm addition except that I re-did the background and did the special glazing.


All Done.











Starting the last mug. This is the PNG version.


I painted it solid and then wiped it off the raised surfaces. Sound familiar?


This turned out to be the most difficult. At my age my hands are not steady. I would paint in the second color and then have to go back and touch up the darker Teal. Back and forth all over the mug.


All done.







The 5 special mugs are done and here's the tiki mug line up for comparison.








Then it occurred to me that all 11 mugs should be in the line. Here we go again.








Next I carried them outside to dry longer and then


I loaded them into the kiln on the bottom level. Just enough space for the 11 mugs.


When I put in the top shelf I had room left so I got out an all blue Bumatay bowl to add color to the fish.


I hope this works. I'm using CN light ginger.


Into the kiln with some glaze tests and Tiki Hula's special crawl mug with pockets.


We are waving bye for now. Cheers, Wendy

These things are incredible. Far surpassing even my wildest hopes. I can't wait to see them fired, but they are beautiful now!

Tiki-Atari right now they are what I call Easter Tiki mugs. Nice pale colors. Once the clear glaze goes on these will be dark and scary. That's my hope. I'm glad you like them so far.

lunavideogames as long as I have all my tiki buddies here I'll keep working. If Tiki Central went away I would slowly disappear. I love Tiki Central and all of you!

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

TIKI POP I hope that it's OK I'm going to post a few photos here from the book. We love the book.
Talk about pounds of History. My scale goes between 5.5 and 6 pounds of Tiki goodness. Every page is covered with photos.
Sven has done it again, he's a master. He'll keep Tiki on everyone's radar. Thank you SVEN.


Off facebook today I borrowed this photo that shows the size.


We love Gecko'z art and what a thrill to see he's holding one of my Bloody Maori heads that he had altered.


This is my own photo.


He's in the photo with kingstiedye aka Bullet.


Another page shows work by GROG and Bosko.


Another page shows Doug Horne, Derek Yanger, Tiki Art Shark and little lost tiki.


I'm so happy to fine one of Roge's Tiki Chunk Lamps. I did the sculpt for the tikis on the sides. That's an Eric October on the right.


The ultimate for me was the page with my Zombie's Torch mug.


I didn't show much of the book. The last image of my torch is on page 377. Notch and others are in there too.

Over and over I say a huge THANK YOU Sven. Love the book.

I can't wait to see the Gilman mugs fired!

Thanks for the sneak peek at the Tiki Pop book. Congrats for being in it, an honor well deserved for you and our other TC members! WTG everyone!

hang10tiki thank you, I'm so happy. We are so lucky to have Sven. This is a book to keep us going. I did 160 votes to get Sven above the now finished Tiki Kon. It didn't work so I gave up. Today I see that others took over and got it there. Now I know how much effort it is to be on the list and I thank you all for putting me there recently.

LoriLovesTiki thank you. The book is mainly history with wonderful photos. This book is a keeper. I know one day I'll read of people upset that they didn't get a copy and now it's $400 on eBay.

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

Tiki Ano you are over the top kind. Thank you for the gift of the ultimate hot chocolate mix from your
www.JoesOnTheNose.com store. It's so good that Dan starts each day with a cup of coffee with your mix added.

We hung your tiki plaque in our family room right next to your Kahiki fireplace art. We are now able to sip and view and think of you!

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

I'm working on the Alien swap art.


I couldn't find a 14 x 18 frame at a thrift store. I was told at Arron Brothers that this is an odd size. I was surprised because I bought the canvas there. They only had one design left in this size but the 1 cent sale was going on so I got two.

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

I opened the kiln.

I wouldn't have to worry about shocking the ceramics with a temperature change. It's been hot enough to warm up the water in my tubs.


Top shelf.


Glaze Tests.


Tiki Hula's one of a kind Sacramento Crawl mug.





The inner cups will hold burning rum. The regular run doesn't have these.


Dan helps so much that he's on the bottom of all the Sacramento Crawl mugs.


The color I added to the Bumatay fish changed them up just right.





Tiki Atari's kickstarter Horror In Clay mugs are ready to come out.


The inside of a kiln is dusty so I washed and rinsed the mugs. They still need the clear glaze layer.


The colors will change again when the clear glaze is added. Water changes it enough to show problems. I learned this from MadDogMike.


The pink I added to the nipples of the topless mugs turned white. I don't think it's going to work. So here's one save by doing this extra firing.


This mug will be very dark. All the white areas will be blended into the rest of the mug with a blue sparkle glaze.





These are all wet and I found other problems that I'll show tomorrow as I fix them.





















Cheers, Wendy

Those mugs have more going on than any other mug I've seen before.
