hang10tiki NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! You can't be done because where are the photos of Janelle?

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

Months ago I made a few things that I'll be sharing now. I also made two more wishes. One I had missed on the list and a second one was for Dan. He said I was working him so hard he needed to be paid.

First up tonight are a couple of Tiki Bobs that I altered into Mid-Century Cats.


My models were my wooden cats.




















Then I altered Tiki Bobs face.






Clay is just so much fun, Wendy

hang10tiki no fair, photos are like a visit and we miss her. We love cats but no pets for us until we decide to quit traveling.

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


It's time to share some catch up photos.


When I'm in thrift stores I watch for wooden beads that will work for my necklaces.


It's time for me to donate art to the Luau on the Lake silent auction for charity. I used some of those beads for these Zombie Village necklaces.


Dan and I were out thrifting and ran into Cole Unger's wife Jenny. That was a treat.


A thank you to Zero Tiki for the get well card. Now that I'm back to work the numbness if back to on and off. I will see a hand surgeon in June.


Dan makes CD's every day. He has many projects. For example all the best music of 1965. He decided that it was time to organize his binders of music.


We went to a Global sale and found some treasures. These are copper/enamel dishes from New Zealand.


PNG stake. Africa Mask. Hula girl in grass skirt.


When we were in O'Hare airport we saw this mammoth dinosaur.


Big Toe bones.


Then at the Global sale I found this super big and heavy war club. It's made with a real bone. Maybe a dinosaur toe bone?


About 3 feet long. Wrapped with leather.


What country do you think it's from by looking at the designs.


Could be a horse tail or human hair, I couldn't tell.



I have finished sculpting the missing wishes and I'll show them soon. It's wonderful to be in a new phase of sanding and firing the projects.
More photos soon, Wendy

There was one Wish on the list that I missed. So As soon as we were back from our trip I went to work on it.
This is for Jeffrey Bannow's home bar. It is a combination of a passion fruit and a wave.

Here is the fruit which also dictates the color of the mug.


My reference wave which also helps with coloring the mug.


I choose the mold which would work best. I soothed off all of the coconut texture on the outside.


I blew up this balloon with it inside the mug and made it have lots of pressure. It job is to keep the mug from collapsing as I roll it around the table to make the shape that of the passion fruit.



After I positioned the fruit on the turntable I also in addition to rolling the mug I began to add clay to form the shape of the tip of the fruit.


Now it's getting there.


I used tape to flatten the end with the opening into the balloon. This allowed me to now add clay to close it off. Since the balloon can be pressed to make room for a brush I did that and smoothed the clay inside the mug also.


Little by little until this end was closed up.






After the clay had firmed up again after a few days I started on the wave.


I go slowly and carefully so there are no air pockets between layers of clay. These would explode in the kiln.


Then I carved the name of the bar. This is a combo of the fruit name and the Hawaiian name for wave.



Jeff decided that he wanted the stem so that it looked more like the fruit.


Next I cut the opening at the top of the mug that will be large enough for ice cubes even after it shrinks from drying and firing. I popped and removed the balloon.


All done.





At the base of the stem are some dead pieces of leaves. All the leaves are placed to prevent the stem from breaking off.

Jeff Bannow, I'm so happy that you are happy. Do you want the inside of the mug yellow? Do you want the name of the bar left purple or done in white or yellow since it is carved into the fruit?

hang10tiki I still have more projects to share that happened because of the Wish List.

Wendy

Wow, great name for a home bar- and fantastic sculpt! We have a lilikoi vine, and love them to bits (Wendy, Tiki Ari is also a huge fan of both eating and hunting for lilikoi that have fallen off the vine (when ripe)). Look forward to seeing this completed!

Since I know Wendy will ask, here are a couple photos of the boy attacking a passion fruit:



Sucking it down, as I learned in Hawaii many years ago...



Love the idea of using a balloon to hold the clay up and preventing it from folding in- Wendy, thanks again for another ceramics tip that I will definitely use! I've used foam blocks, towels, and more, but a balloon makes the most sense!

I hope your hand gets stronger and better- hopefully you can continue taking it easy even after your cruise to give your hand a break- though I know that may be tough since you work nonstop on all of this amazing work!

As requested, Wendy, here's a recent pic of Tiki Ari (at the Bali Hai, at the recent "Tiki Trader" event (where I vended)

I think yellow inside and white for the lettering would be great. Thanks!

TikiAno what a fun morning to wake up to these photos. I will smile all day thinking of him and the fruit photos. Thank you so much.

Jeff Bannow that would be my choice too.


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

Update on the Wish List #7. During the last year...yes year...I started casting last June for this Wish List and began the project in September. Since I started so early on both the Wish List and the Sacramento Crawl mug I have a ton of Catch Up project photos to share. While I do that I have started to glaze what has already been fired. So much to show and so little time. I will get it out there day by day.


So here is the first catch up.

I have had problem with making lids for my huge Maori lamps.

I would hand build the disk and then when firm do all the design carving.


I would dry them in and out of a plastic bag and right about the time they were done drying they would crack. ARGH!


So I decided that maybe I was trapping air in the clay when I made them and that casting would be better. So it's time to sculpt a lid and to make a mold. So I started with a mix of Romo #3 and #2 and some Monster Clay.


To save my joints I use a wooden "thumb".


I save lids that I can use as templates. I mark the clay for cutting.


The so I don't slip I use one as a brace as I remove clay.


I constantly smooth the clay.


Looking at it I decided that I wanted the ring in the center to be larger.


I added a ring of clay and


smoothed it into shape.


Thinking about mold making I changed to shape into a pyramid.


once I was done adding clay I used my label scraper to cut the top flat.


All done. Now how will I make a mold for this?


I flipped it over and smoothed the top.


I will need an opening in which to pour in the slip so I made a cone of clay.
I set it in the center of my lid.


I added clay at the bottom.


I mushed it into place locking the cone to the lid.


I smoothed it around the base.


Almost looks like a space ship with a beam to steal cows!


Now the lid is ready to mold along with my new Rapa Nui mug. I bisque fired the mug since the sculpt was made from carving regular clay and not sculptors clay. Now it is hard and can be molded.


Now I'm off to work, Wendy
