tikilongbeach thank you for the travel tips. We plan to return now that we've found it to be so close to home. Our parents always went to Santa Cruz on the beach and we did the same. It's an hour further away so now we've found a closer trip. However we do not drive in snow so Lake Tahoe is only a summer trip for us.

tigertail777 I am so sorry to hear about your tendonitis. For me ice always worked best. You may scream a bit until you get used to it but it will heat up your tendons better than a heat pack. Think of this, when you heat up your body tries to cool you off. When you get cold blood rushes to that area to warm you up. What helps tendons? Heat and blood with it's healing properties. I can put an ice pack right on my side without flinching, that's how much I've used ice. It calms down the pain too.

I wanted the Moia but if I photographed it from the other side it was a wonder the head was still on. Glad you like Tiki Atari's mugs. I'm waiting for them to arrive at his home.

hang10tiki the salt and peppers are original. Do you have any? The trip was wonderful. I'm going through Tiki Oasis withdrawl. I have to keep busy so I don't suffer not being there.

TikiAno you and hang10tiki are going to have so much fun swapping art at Oasis. I am looking forward to photos.


The Moai and Sphinx were at the side of the sculptors shop. I just took photos from the other side.


More photos later, Dan wants to go on a walk. Cheers, Wendy

MadDogMike we have a really small oven. In the 19 years we've lived here I've never baked a Turkey. A chicken fits! Are you and Teresa going to Oasis? I'm so sad to miss it.

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

Back when I made Wish List #4 there was also a list for Dan's wishes. I put them on the backburner while I did the mugs for Tiki Atari. Now it's time to start glazing his wishes while I do the Sacramento Crawl mugs.

This is the complete glazing story for Dan's Tiki Bob Volcano Bowl. These are the colors he picked out to use on the bowl and volcano.


I sat down to start and then changed my mind and


set up in front of the bigger TV. I started on the bottom.




















Only where I used under-glaze (which doesn't move) did I use the clear glaze on top.











In the kiln to fire.


All done no skips.


Off to Dan's tiki room it goes.


I hope that many of you have gone off to Tiki Oasis. I hope you'll post photos here. Have a wonderful time.

Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki this is so super fine. Now I don't feel like I'm missing out. Please continue when you have time. I know it takes a lot of that to post. I appreciate it so much and I bet everyone else does too. Hugs, Wendy

No Wendy, we're not making it to Oasis this year either - too much stuff going on. So I'm enjoying Jon's pics too

I like that volcano bowl, if you put some baking soda into the crater then add lime juice will it erupt?

hang10tiki you were reading my mind. Seeing the photos of the art show is such a gift. Thank you.

hang10tiki Sandra Fremgen has a painting in the show. Did you see which one?

MadDogMike is that a hint? I've never put baking soda and lime together. Should I? We are missing you and all out tiki buddies this time. But I know you are in good hands.

Dan's really happy with his volcano bowl. Soon I'll be working on all of his Wish List. Those pieces are just waiting to be glazed.

TikiG Thank you so much. Good to see your name pop up. Do you still have the sticky zombie clay mug?

hang10tiki those photos were so wonderful I feel as if I was there. Thank Janelle for doing them for us all.

hang10tiki I've really been in withdrawal. No tiki buddy hugs in August is a real bummer. I think I need a trip this winter to Las Vegas to see our friends!!!

Thank you so posting these photos. I love seeing you there having fun. The greatest tiki party in the world. With the best tiki people ever.

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

While we wait for more Tiki Oasis photos from hang10tiki and others I'll post my projects.

Tiki Hula came over to see how his mug turned out. It was perfect. One day we'll have more photos with flames from the pockets he had me custom add.


One by one while he and Dan played record I wiped off the excess glaze from the second half of the mugs.


Sometimes the washcloth took off too much. For some I used an underglaze pencil to put the line back and sometimes I painted it back on. I had to check the bottom of every mug to make sure they were OK. My bottoms are hand done so they don't look manufactured.


My next day I prepared to glaze all the insides so that they would be white there and around the edge. These are coconut mugs with white meat. My first plan was to fill the mug and coat the inside and then to put them upside down on these plates to drain further. Then I would smooth the outer edge when I picked them up. I changed my mind see how below.


I set up another table and brought all the mugs together. My goal is to get the insides done in one day.


I poured in the glaze and coated the insides.


Then I quickly poured out the excess. Instead of putting it down on a plate I had found bowls that fit the coconuts so that they could drain into the bowl.


6 at a time could drain.


Also I would use a spatula every so often to clean out the bowls and put the glaze back into the pitcher.


Another 8 draining.


When I turned them over I spread the glaze around the rim with my finger.


I made it. In one day I did all the crawl mugs plus one left over from Wish List #4. See below.


Muskrat requested that I change the name to Kiki's. I told him that I could do that if he could wait until I was working on the crawl mugs. He also wanted the letters to be turquoise. I'll do that with enamel after they fire. But I did do a back up glaze of teal blue that will show up a tiny bit.









Now it's time to get back to work in my home tiki factory. Cheers, Wendy

As you may know, I'm not the biggest Tiki Bob fan, but that volcano bowl is just amazing - especially in person. Dan is a very lucky guy (because he has you, Wendy)

Hang10. Of course I'm missing Oasis too and partying with all you cool kats again Next year I'll be there or else! Mahalo for the photos.

Jon,

Thanks so much for posting pictures! Someday I'll get to Oasis, SOMEDAY! In the meantime thank you for leeting me live vicariously through you.

As everyone knows, Dan is a most excellent packer. I just received my swap painting (I was away last week) and, as usual, it was packed beautifully. Thanks Dan & Wendy!
