hang10tiki I am so happy to be able to post again. It must have been that TC had many working to post at the same time.

Next up will be a Blog by Ray Wyland on facebook. He is also coming to Sacramento to visit us and the Jungle Bird in March.

What are you doing for Janelle's birthday on Sunday? Photos to share? Wish her a happy one from us.

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

Wish List #7 progress report. Since I got a head start I am able to post the sculpting from start to finish in one long post on some of the projects.

The Wish was to have a volcano bowl made with the name and log of this hotel bar on the side. I can't reveal the name of who ordered this bowl.





I started with cleaning a bowl and then using a shot glass to cut a center hole. This will open the volcano to outside air for drying and releasing gasses when fired.


I cast and cleaned up a fogcutter mug and cut off the top.


I attached it to the bowl with sticky clay and


then I built a floor inside the volcano for a rum and sugar cube for lighting.


Once this had firmed up overnight I worked on the sides of the volcano.


Side view.


Top View.


About a week later I could turn it upside down to finish off the bottom.


Time for the name and logo. I found some stiff hair curlers at a thrift shop. They were in 6 sizes and perfect for pressing into clay to make a circle.


I carved the circle deeper and then the logo.


Now it was time for the name of the hotel. I used the photo and a stick to press along the words.


Now I have a guide.


I sanded a stick to the right size and shape for carving the letters.


I'm always so happy with this part is done.


He requested a wood-grain on the bowl so that's what I carved.


A few days later I did the smaller lines.


As the grains of clay dry I will be able to brush them off.


Another week of drying one hour in the plastic bag and one hour out it was finally dry enough to turn over onto a plastic tub so I can do the bottom as well.


The bowl is now completely dry after almost a month. It is just waiting until I can fire. Cracking is always a possibility. I never say a piece is safe until it is in the hands of the Wisher.

Cheers, Wendy

JenTiki thank you so much for the link. It's fun seeing it move around. They never told us that it could happen so this is a surprise.

bamalamalu We are having a wonderful retirement with fun projects and trips. Dan and I both were fortunate to be employed from age 16 until retirement. That's probably why I can't stop working. But I am having so much fun. I love all the challenges of peoples ideas.

Thank you for watching and reading and for letting me know.

JenTiki I am such a ham I pulled it up and took a photo. Thank you.

lunavideogames this is by far the creepiest photo of my work I have ever seen. How will I sleep tonight?


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


Wish List #7 the KZAP cat for Bullet aka kingstiedye.


I just started adding clay and


more clay.



I worked to build the cat face.


Getting closer.


When I showed this to Bullet he wanted to know if I could pull the face back so it wasn't jutting forward.


I couldn't do that but I could build out the body until it was under the head. So I just started adding clay to each part.



All done and ready to spend a month drying in and out of a plastic bag. Bullets suggestion made the entire mug better. I'm always open to these comments.









Every part of this cat was worked and re-worked to get it right. The shape of the sign, with bottom lip of the cat, every part changed over time.
Clay is a wonderful medium because no one has to settle, you just have to keep at it until it is right.

Cheers, Wendy

Catch up photos from the past couple of weeks.


I found a shelf at a thrift store and Dan attached it to the wall for me. He then loaded all the recent thrift store glaze onto the shelves. Perfect.


I don't know how Dan keeps track of his tiki collection but when he saw this plate he said, "just what I need to complete my set". Good memory and a great find.


Jen Tiki was so sweet to show me that our article made another paper, this one in San Louis Obispo.


Dan found a basket and filled it with tikis that had been hidden behind other tikis.


He said his man cave is now complete.


It's Dan's job to dust his tiki collection but the sea shells are all mine.


I cleaned each one and then put them back on the shelf.


I forgot I can't post photos when I rotate the camera.


Dan found a basket and knew just what he needed it for.


We went to Alpha because I completely ran out of slip for casting the Sacramento Crawl mug. One each day.


We went thrifting for one day and I found lamp shades for some Maori Lamps I am making, A vase for draining the insides of mugs as I glaze them. A string of beads I will use when I make the Zombie Village necklaces. A big pot for washing my bisque-ware when it is too cold to wash them outside. Two big Rubbermade containers for storing clay that I cut off the tops of mugs after casting. A jar of sponge brushes for glazing. A roller for making spaghetti that I will try to use with clay. A plastic table cloth for covering my bisqeware to keep the dust off. A fantastic haul.


Dan found these records and some were from the 60's and never opened.


May your weather be good. Tomorrow a 6 day storm comes to our area with flood warnings. We bought food today so we could stay home. Cheers, Wendy

Wish List #7. This one is for hang10tiki.

He sent me this photo. The brain I made is larger so it's possible he could say, "nope do it again".


He wanted the brain to sit on a rim inside the mug so I made that as requested. So if he wants a flat brain the mug will still be ready.


I just work a big piece of clay until it's the right shape.


I put plastic wrap on the mug so that the brain won't stick as I check out the size.


Days later I was able to carve detail into Tiki Bob's Brain.


Days after that I was able to fine tune the inside of the Brain piece using my label scrapper.











The Brain is hollow but thick so it will need to dry for weeks.


Now we wait to see it the Brain is too big. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki oh I'm so happy that it's OK. Please sing Happy Birthday to Sew Tiki aka Janelle for us. I don't know how often she's here so you get to do it!




Hugs for both of you, Wendy



Progress Report on Wish List #7 this mug is for Brian Kast.

He sent me these photos and asked if


I could make a Tiki King Diamond Bob.


Here are the steps I took starting with cleaning up a Tiki Bob mug to alter.


I worked on the hat.


It's Built in so


It's not removable. Then I carved the face detail.


Perfect, a white Bob face with Black King Diamond decorations, just like Psycho Tiki D's KISS mugs.


Copying is so hard. I used a photo to outline the words on the clay.


It takes hours to look at the printed version and to still carve it to match.


All done and ready for inspection.












I can't do a mug a day but I'm far enough ahead having started in October that I can share some start to finish until my posts catch up with me!

Cheers, Wendy
