Jon, nice carve!

Wendy, love Flower Power Bob- great use of found object. Love the detail/ combination of peanut & flowers. I wonder if Dan is going to wear a matching flower power shirt when he steals this mug????

Also love the detail on the Venice leg Bob, but who's counting? Hope you're getting a bit of rest in, too.

Those are some of my most favorite Brady Bunch episodes ever! I was addicted to the show as a kid. I have been know to stay tuned to Tv land Brady Bunch marathons in the hopes of catching a Hawaii episode. Vincent Price! Hawaii! Scorpions! Surfing!

But sadly, I haven't seen one of them in YEARS!

TikiAno you make me blush with all the fun comments. Dan too for hogging all my work!

hang10tiki is Green Valley Ranch the place with the casino that looks like Italy? I'm really close to being 100% healed and feeling better than I have in years. This wasn't a surgery connected to my back. It was to fix a muscle. I have cramping issues. However my physical therapy that is going along concurrently is pure hell. I dislocated my jaw and messed up my TMJ. They press so hard outside and inside my mouth to stretch the muscles that work the jaw that it's almost not bearable. Then they do shock treatments with an EMG machine. That's why I'm getting so many day trips from Dan so that I also have good times too.

Thank you so much for the photos. I really have been so curious about that show. I only saw a bit of it now and then. That's wonderful that you could access them for all of us.

I hope you have other carving projects to share here.

LoriLovesTiki (: Childhood memories can be such fun. I still have a box with some small mementos.

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

Today is catch up day where I share what we do besides make tikis.

As soon as I finished my TMJ PT we headed off to Folsom, California to the Animal Sanctuary. They even have feral cats here.


This was my favorite animal by far.


Dan tried to fly like an eagle.


We saw dear just hanging out.


The next day we drove to Grass Valley. It fun to find tikis in the wild or is it Dan being wild?


In an antique shop we found some Harvey's vintage mugs. Three for $28 was too good to pass up.


Next we went to Roge's shop. He's retiring again from making chunk lamps so all he has left are on Etsy.


These are for sale on the site.


We bought all the rest of his cast Moai that I had sculpted for him to mold and cast.


When we got home I lined them up on the top shelf of the nook.


He had just enough left that I was able to perfect the display.


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

At an estate sale near our home we found two glass floats that Dan hung with our Tiki Tony pet bird.


I'll call it a night with Dan rocking our baby to sleep.


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

Thank you all so much for making each day so much fun. I love posting and reading your comments, Wendy

hang10tiki every time we go to someone's home they have things we have never seen. I think it's good to collect a certain style or artist so that your home doesn't get taken over like a couple I know personally. WE B Buried in Tikis but not with them.

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

I sat down and started to work on a new PNG Bob and got so absorbed that I didn't move from the chair for hours. I also forgot to take in progress photos. That's so not me!





Rings around the body. Texture added and then the pinup photos.















I'm working hard to get a kiln load. Once I get that accomplished and fired I'll think about opening the next
Wish List which will be number 5. I also need to start sculpting the next Sacramento Crawl mug for 2015. Ceramics
are not fast so I always start early.

See you all soon, I hope, Wendy

New Bob = amazing. Even without progress shots I'm still impressed!

I'm still looking for the full streaming episode of that Brady Bunch episode, but here are a few clips:

This is pretty fun, too, a "mash-up" of the 3 part episode (to music):

Jon, great pics, ha ha ha!

hang10tiki Tiki Bob says he's very please you think he looks good.

TikiHula glazing will require some patience but I don't mind. Maybe you'll be here to watch.

TikiAno It's so much fun to multitask. Get well, watch TV and carve a Tiki Bob all while nibbling on veggies! I watched the Brady bunch movies. I'd never seen them and it was so fun. Vincent Price was a favorite actor of Dan's and mine. It was good to see him too.

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

Here's a fail that I turned around. I did this once before but this time I supercarved Bob.

Every once in a while I pour in slip that doesn't have enough water content. When I go to pour out the Bob I sometimes forget to check that all the slip has poured out before I leave the mold upside down for the night. If I'd noticed I could have stuck in a long stick to get the sludge moving or pounded the side of the mold with a rubber mallet, this too will get the thick slip to move out of the cast.

Well since I did neither I had a Tiki Bob whose bottom half of the mug was thick wet slip. The only way to get it out was to cut out the bottom of the mug and scoop it out. I did it until it looked like this.


It is easier to add a top than to form a new bottom so I made a piece of clay with a hole in the middle.


I added some sticky clay to this piece and then I pressed Bob into place.


I cut around to remove the excess but left some that I


could pull up the side of the mug to seal on the piece better.


I flipped him over and cleaned up the whole mug.


Once it was firm enough I carved in some designs. This Tiki Bob will have a flickering bulb on top of his head. He's a torch.


Now I just started doing some carving around his sides.


Not too elaborate just fun.





I also added a hole for the electrical cord.


The swirls in the front didn't tie in so I changed them and then I hated it so


I removed the new design also.


Sometimes less is better so this is how I've left him to dry.


This Tiki Bob will join his brothers to wait for his day in the kiln.

I hope you are having a fun weekend.

Tiki Ano's baby is due in a couple of weeks. Will you name it Tiki Bob or Tiki BobBette? Wendy

Ha ha ha! Unfortunately my wife has vetoed most of my names offered (a number of them tiki related). Hopefully he stays in there a little bit to be fully cooked (cone 00004?). Yes, it's a boy- though won't be named Mo(ai). (It got vetoed).
