ZeroTiki and you are super sweet. I can't wait to see you at the crawl.

hang10tiki and you are too!

hang10tiki and she is too. That is darling. I just know how much she smiled thinking of giving it to you. More photos?

ebtiki you are the first to mention it. We just opened our editions. It shows our obsession with everything tiki.

===========================
Friends Dan and I are the centerfold in this months issue of Tiki Magazine. We are the Tikified couple. Mitch Tobias took the photos of the collection and Tiki Hula took the photo of Dan and I. We are such hams that we are thrilled to be in this issue.

I will love to hear what you think of the spread.

This magazine is a must for collectors and historians. Every article is well done and worth saving. Queen Kamehameha aka Amy has kept up the high standards since taking over from Nick Camera. Please check it out.
===========================

Back to Bloody Maori's. The first severed Maori head I did for Dan wasn't my favorite so I told him I would make him another. Well that first head ended up in the issue of Tiki Magazine so now he'll not part with it but he still intends to take one of these heads. The other I will sell.

When these were first cast I altered one to have a high forehead and tongue sticking out. The other still resembles a Ren Clark head.


I used the squirt bottle to do the inside of the mouth.


Next I choose the glaze.


Then I did the insides of each mug.


I used the squeeze bottle to fill in all the moko carvings on the faces.


Another view and


one more view.


I used a wet washcloth to wipe one down and


then the other one.


I choose all the colors for doing the faces.


I did the mouths and eyes.


I choose the skin color that went well with the interior glaze.


Then I painted one and


then the other one.


I then did the bottoms of the mugs.


Next I wiped off the glaze on the eyebrows and


painted black on the space.


Now I've finished with doing the hair too.


Side view. The closest mug has an earring.


Now hopefully the black moko will show through the skin glaze.

What do you think? Wendy

Those severed heads are going to be SICK!

What Hang10 said about what TikiHula said.

I saw you & Dan in Tiki Magazine, awesome!

The latest heads look great. Your glazing, and patience re: said glazing, is always beyond impressive. Thanks for showing off for us!

My three Musketeers have written to me! I love male, I mean mail.

TikiHula

hang10tiki

TikiAno

Thank you men.

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

I'll post a photo from Tiki Magazine soon. If you see it tell me what you think. I look at it and think Obsession.

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

Now it's back to glazing. This is the weird bowl I made from left over casts. So I call it the Polynesian bowl.

First I glazed the inside white and then the outside brown, it's a coconut.


Now I raised the bottom up and let it dry overnight.


I rubbed black into the crevices


and choose a color for these parts.


Glazed them.


I glazed all the Moai and put it out in the backyard to dry. I have enough to run a load now.


Bottom shelf.


Center shelf.


Top shelf.


Now it's back to the coconuts. Cheers, Wendy

That kiln is full of awesomeness

The colors are better in person
Can't wait to see the kiln open

hang10tiki are those two birds beak to beak? Whatever the theme it's really pretty.

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

Have mugs will travel. The Sacramento Crawl mugs made it back to the nook one more time. I'm enhancing the tiki and the wording with gold pin-striping paint that I got from Mahalo Tiki.


It's taking extra days but I think it makes it all stand out from the background so it's worth it.


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

We are totally thrilled to be the centerfold for Tiki Magazine this month.

Here's the cover with Sven. His Tiki Pop book is a must have with so many photos it's over the top.


Here's our centerfold.


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

We had a Buzzy type of sunset.


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

Dan gave me the nickname of Goofy and my lucky number is 10 so when I saw this license I had to snap a photo.


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

We went on another tiki hunt.

Dan spotted this tapa on a board.


We didn't buy it but I took a photo for use when carving mugs.


He did spot one extra cool mug to buy.


Then off to another store where he spotted this mug.


By the end of the search we had these to purchase.


I've already added my sailfish to the bathroom wall.


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

hang10tiki I'll open the kiln tomorrow! Cheers, Wendy

RugbyMatt thank you your all set, see you at the crawl.

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

To start off here are some futzing around photos.


I tried to see how well the moon would show up one evening.


Gotta have a tiki in there too.


I found the first Tiki Atari kickstarter mug that I'd cleaned up and fired as a guide. I glazed and hand painted it and sent it off to him as a gift.


Dan moved two large Gecko'z bowls downstairs so I suggested he put all our tiki/music books on the empty shelves. Hi filled it up and then I reminded him that the huge new Tiki Pop book is still out. No room left!


We bought a Witch Doctor Hawaiian Eye mug and Dan asked if I would change the color.


I'm just painting right over the old glaze. First with underglaze in black and


then in a rusty spotted orange.


I'm working to glaze a load for firing.

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

Sacramento Crawl Mugs.

I finished the mugs and they are waiting for their signature cards and to be boxed.



I numbered all of the boxes for while Tiki Hula hid behind them.


======================================================
The kiln is opened.

Shelf number 1.


I close up of the Zombie wall hanging that I made when the front of the mug was ruined with water spilt by a repairman.


Shelf number 2.


Dan snagged his Rappa Moai.


Shelf number 3.


New glazes to use in the future.


I'll take some close up photos of the new pieces and post them here soon. Cheers, Wendy

Atomic Tiki Punk I like to remember special statements.
I fixed my (here) error on the header. I'll have better photos soon.

Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki good finds. I wish your trip had brought you here. That a Dan sized cinnamon roll. Beware of big treats!

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

The kiln is unloaded and all the new works are on the dining room table.


The lump past these are all the rest of the bisque fired pieces waiting to be glazed. There's always something to do.


I hope you all have a great hump day. That's Wednesday of course. Cheers, Wendy
