You are welcome. Everyone should have a copy of the Goonies.

Keep up the great mug making and we will see you soon at Tiki Oasis!

Wendy-The same picture you are using (the black and white) is the same that caught my eye.

bamalamalu my husband and I couldn't remember the word petroglyph and just gave up. Thank you so much. I went and changed it on that post.

If you look at the first tiki I ever made in clay you would laugh. It just comes down to practice. I've been doing this for a number of years now. My first sculpt that wasn't laughable was the Bloody Maori that Gecko molded and produced since we were and are friends. Get some clay and just play with it. I started with Sculpey.

TMJ is not fun. I'm lucky that it only hurt when I dislocated my jaw, now I'm careful and it's not painful. Good advice for those who are suffering.

Thank you for your post. Reading messages like yours is what makes my day.


lunavideogames we are looking forward to seeing you at Oasis. Dan is so excited to own the movie that has always been one of his favorites though he's only seen it twice 30 years ago. Now he'll watch it many more times. I'll watch it once with him.

RVICTOR isn't it a small world of tiki. If you run into any more from my area...share, please. I need inspiration for next year.

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

Part Two of making necklaces so I have extra stuff for the kiln.


The second Sacramento crawl mug was a decanter. When I broke up that mold I kept the one piece from which I could cast Tiki Bob necklaces. This photo is an optical illusion. It actually is inverted.


The molds are not flat so to keep enough slip filling Bob to the top of his head I make a dam. The next time I did this I just shimmed the bottoms with pencils.


I fill them up for 2 hours and then pour the excess out.


The next day I was able to easily remove them and


later to trim off the excess clay. On of the molds always makes a whole bunch of tiny air bubbles in the slip.


The holes are bigger than they look and you can't glaze over them. So I press then flat and then add clay on top and smooth it.


Four done with holes for the string.


I decided to make a few Moai necklaces too. So I cast one.


Now I'm getting a pile that will help off set the cost of firing a mostly empty kiln.


I started carving this Moai and when I finished


he had a hand grenade belly.


This one is just a fun in the garden Moai.





I made a couple more and now it's time to let everything dry out. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki me too. I doubt they'll leave this house!

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


The next steps for the Swap mug, HUGE Maori jar for the Xiem Clay Center Show and the necklaces.

It took three weeks for the HUGE Maori jar to dry and just a week for the two mugs and necklaces to dry. Now they are all ready to sand.


This shows how I sand the bottom of the mugs and a mesh sheet of "sand" paper. That's the Swap mug.


Using plaster and sanding both require a mask. See the flash reflecting off the particles? All done.


Dan's job is to air compress off the dust while I load them into the kiln. We both wear ear protection and the masks.


This Maori is so large that he's holding it while I take the photo and aim the nozzle at the inside.


Down and


up and


sideways.


All done.


The last one was the Swap mug.


I loaded them into the kiln one by one. They could have been stacked on top of each other but I wanted to say I'd made enough to fill one shelf. I'm done with sculpting and casting and I'll only be glazing now for months!


The bisque fire is done and cooled and ready to be washed.


One of our washing tubs cracked so we got a couple of short garbage cans this time. Our plants get excited when we wash ceramics because they know they'll get a drink. We try to do different shrubs each time.


Waiting to be washed you can see the HUGE Maori jar with the lid on.


Top view.


Starting to wash.


All the next loads will be glazing loads. Now the real fun begins! Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki you always make me smile.

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

Catchup photos.

Out in the wild Dan found a Mark Thomas Outrigger Pineapple mug for $2.25!


BAck home he redid the sawhorses making them taller and stronger for the next time we make a mold.





This was a Wish List Failure. I just couldn't get the dot's how the person who ordered them envisioned. Worked out well because Dan liked it. But now he decided to have me change it and fuse the two pieces together.


So I glazed it and


after firing the dots where still there. Suborn little dots. Someday I'll try it again. These were CN glazes on top of CN glazes.


I'm working hard and I have many more photos to post as I free up some time. Cheers, Wendy

Biotron2000 this is an actual cast of a Frankoma War God. I was given the copy write to the tiki line by my dear friend Joniece Frank so it's legal. I'll let you know if Dan wants to sell this one or you can order one when I open the next Wish List at the end of this year. Thank you.

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

I'm behind in posting photos of my work because I've been working so hard I'm to tire to post!!!

I'll just ahead here to show that I have glaze my Swap mug for the Enchanted Tiki Room Swap. It's a lot of fun.













Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki thank you for the visit and cool comments.

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

Last December as I started work on the Sacramento Crawl mug and Wish List #5 I added to that the pouring of Tiki Bob's.
I posted many of the mugs on page 116 because they were for sale. Some sold and some of those are still waiting to be glazes.

I've continued to carve Tiki Bob's whenever I watched TV. These are all new Tiki Bob's that haven't been shown here before. Some have been claimed by Dan and some by Mahalo Tiki. The rest will eventually be up for sale.

Right now I'm just catching up posting and soon I'll be showing those that have already been glazed.

After all of these have been made I plan to stop making Tiki Bob's unless they are requested on a Wish List.


1. First, Second or Third.








2. Red Brick Chimney Bob.





3. Torch with flame.


4. Tapa Doodles.








5. Tapa Bottle.








6. Bamboo already claimed by Dan.






7. Re-do of a Wish List Order for K.G.McN.








8. Mid-Century Cat held for lunavideogames.




9. Maori carvings.








10. Peanut and mid-century.








11, Deep carving.









Thank you for the visit, Wendy

I'll take the Cat Bob if it is not already sold. My wife loves the cat mugs. She bought a girl Bob from you at the Marketplace a while back, but she seems to like Bobs and wants everything cats

"Many more one-of-a-kind Tiki Bobs"? Now that's my kind of headline!
I'm digging the 'modified tapa' Bob, btw.
Cheers! e.

lunavideogames I am behind in posting. The cat mug is available. As soon as it is fired I'll check back with you to see if she still wants it.

We watched the Goonies and we loved the movie. Thank you so much. Having just been in Astoria, Oregon we recognized so many of the places seen in the movie. Sending that to us when they were celebrating the 30th anniversary made it even more special. Thank you so much.


ebtiki it's fun for me when it's fun for you!


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


This year I cast 100 Tiki Bob's. Some were used as bases for other creations and many were just carved for fun.
Here are all the rest. I am in the process of glazing them and firing them. They run from $75 to $95 depending on complexity of carving and or glazing. Plus shipping too.


A.




B.


C.






D.
These eyes are human, from outer space and whose knows what. I will glaze them accordingly.










E. - #1 or #2








F.


G.




H.




I.




J.
I forgot to take more photos of this one.


K.




L.










Dan has claimed this Spider Bob.









I've lettered them in case you want to place a hold on one until you see it glazed. I'm going back to number the first set.

Oh my goodness! I want one of these Bobs soooooo bad. They all make me smile from ear to ear! I think the one I like best (at least unglazed) is the one in the first batch on the left that almost looks like the pattern is ferns or other foliage fronds? I'd looooooove it, if it's available. But if it's not, I'd be thrilled to have any of them in our home Hokulani Lounge!
