Wendy,I'm sorry about your bowl cracking but, the way you've dealt with it looks like it could be amazing! I can't wait to see your lamp Tikis in acrylic! I don't know what I'm going to do with your rocks(thank you)but, I now have rocks in my head!

MDM, I love your waterfall!

I hope the Tiki Gods are now satisfied with all of our sacrificial pieces! Maybe we can get some work done without all the drama!

Good Karma to all!

Wendy,
Came home tonight after having a Mai-Tai or 3 at the Bali Hai and found a lil box at the door. Picked it up, ran inside, grabbed a machete, ripped da box open and BAMMMMMM, my jaw fell on the floor and broke in two. The crate tiki is AMAZING and huge...WOW...it looks great, you did a wonderful job...I placed it next to the two carvings I did in your honor...LOVE IT...thanks again...pics below...

PS- I was wrong, my jaw broke into 3 pieces...

hang10tiki, thank you very much for your post. I love seeing your carving tribute next to my ceramic. I enjoyed it when you did the carvings and I'm enjoying them now.

Lamp update. The molding etc. is being done in Grass Valley where winter has set in. It may snow there tomorrow. So the mold is taking its time setting. Roge hopes to take it apart next Monday.

Well my Missionary's Downfall bowl has continued to crack so I've made the crack part of the style. I like the way the light shines through onto the woman with the hole but then it needed to still be a useful piece of art. So I've made a bowl to sit inside the alter. I will carve it out to look like the stone pillars. It will be removable a free standing bowl to drink from or to store in the alter.

It will shrink an inch as it dries. I might at well have fun with this. Who knows in the end it may look just fine.

Hi friends, it's all fun no matter what. It's as much fun sharing the catastrophes as the successes. Today Sven was on TV, I missed it but I saw this photo. To my joy I saw my Zombie Hut mug on the top of Sven's CD cabinet next to the pole. Here's the photo. Cheers, Wendy

That is as cool as the segment was on the come back of Tiki Bars! Congratulations Wendy! You do ROCK! From New York to California there is a Tiki Revival! I couldn't be more pleased! Well maybe if one of my pieces of art was on National TV!

Cheers to my Mentor, Wendy!

Hi zerostreet, umeone and Kele. Thanks for taking a look. That was so much fun to revisit the fact the Sven wanted my mug.

UPDATE AND RECAP ON THE PROGRESS OF THE TIKI RESIN CHUNK LAMP PROJECT

THE CLAY PATTERNS WERE DELIVERED TO ROGER AND WITH FURTHER ASSISTANCE FROM MIGUEL ANDRADE THEY PREPARED THE PATTERNS FOR THE MOLD AND THEN CASTINGS WERE PRODUCED TO GO INTO THE TIKI LAMPS

THIS IS ROGER BODINE HE STARTED AND OWNED LAGUNA LAMPS. HE DESIGNED ALL OF THE ROCK CHUNK LAMPS AND AFTER HIS BUSINESS BURNT TO THE GROUND HE SOLD IT ALL. HE DISPLAYED HIS LAMPS IN THE FESTIVAL OF ARTS IN LAGUNA BEACH, CALIFORNIA.

HIS CURRENT DESIGNS FOR SALE ON ETSY 2011.


THESE ARE THE CLAY SCULPTURES THAT I BROUGHT TO LIFE FROM ROGERS VISION AND INSTRUCTION AS TO DETAIL AND TEXTURE (I fess up he taught me to use sandpaper)


Before proceeding to make the rubber mold Roge called the company that makes Romo sculpting clay. He asked them it it would inhibit the cure of the rubber mold material. He was told that it wouldn't. They were not correct in giving that assurance. The mold did not set and was mush for 2 weeks and had to be discarded. The pink mold shows that it is still slimy where it touched the clay.


Miguel was able to save the sculpts from this mess and to proceed to make new rubber molds with a different mix of chemicals.






From the blue molds Miguel was able to cast the master's with all the detail.


Next step. Miguel cast each of the heads.

The God of Light

The Easter Island Moai


Next step was to place the head into a mold and pour resin and add the resin chunk rocks.











Another design element that Roger came up with was to add lava rock boarders. He will also add this rock along the seams when the panels (4) are attached.




Stay tuned for more photos next week. To check out the rest of Rogers Lamps see his etsy pages.

I watch their project the same way you do. They send photos and I post them here. I had such a tiny part to play but the thrill for me is huge!

Cheers, Wendy


“Wendy gets the credit for sculpting the Tiki and Easter Island heads. Without the heads in the Tiki Lamps, passion would be missing”…….Roger

Aaaah, how great it is to see the art of resin Tikis resurrected!

There were few, but some, vintage resin Tiki lamps in existence in the 60s:



But no one has combined them with the chunky lamps, so far!
Later, during the early Tiki revival, someone made these resin pendants:





...which I always loved. And then there were the translucent swizzle sticks:



Resin objects are, quite literally, real eye candy!

Congratulations Wendy, they look great. I've added his etsy page to my favourites and look forward to seeing the finished pieces. I actually need a nice lamp cover for my lounge room. One with tikis on it would be perfect.
