hang10tiki thanks for the visit. I like making torches now and then. It's great that they still make flicker bulbs.

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

Some of the mugs I make are similar to previous mugs. I do this because Dan has taken what I made before and it has disappeared into his tiki jungle room.

I had this cast that had an irregular top so I decided to make a bamboo Bob.


I just started by doing the bamboo and then I added leaves.


Some leaves go in front of the stalks and some behind.


For this mug I did a rocky wall behind the bamboo.


Pinups.












Tiki Hula is here right now working on my computer back up drives. Something isn't right. I've given him a challenge.

I hope your weekend is fun and free of glitches.

Cheers, Wendy

HallerWaller thank you for the visit. Tiki Bob thanks you too.

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

On Friday we went on an all day trip to go to new Discovery Shops in towns within driving distance of our home. We were gone 12 hours total. It wouldn't have taken so long but a big rig had an accident on the Freeway and we were stuck for hours sitting in our car. We were just so happy that we were not part of the accident.


In Freemont we found a shelf of tikis but most were marked one hundred dollars so we kept on going.


20 years ago we searched for this mug when in Hawaii and didn't find it. It's a Daga Honolulu. $14 Yippy!


I also found Dan a couple for $3.


Then we were off to Las Gatos and lunch at Billy's Boston Chowder House. Yum.


The Discovery Shop were we go most days is run by the American Cancer Society. In Las Gatos it apparently gets donations that are worth a lot more than in our home town.


As we rounded the corner I saw that renting space in this town must cost a lot.


We also went to San Jose, Sunnyvale and then to San Mateo to our favorite restaurant away from home. The Fish Market. The view and the sourdough bread are the best.


The ride home before the backup began.


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


For Tiki Bob's you can carve the body, the face or both. Here's a Maori Bob with his tongue out.












One of these days I'll open Wish List #5 so I can work on your creations.

Today we get our flu shots. They really work. I hope you all can get one too. Wendy

TikiG you are so welcome. Dan has your painting in his man cave. Each day I feel one of the pieces that I used the new sealer on and when it stays fine and not sticky I am so happy. I hope your stays fine from this point on. Thank you so much for the eerie photo, full of mystique.

TikiAno traffic used to be so light in the 50's. There's no more room in downtowns to widen the roads. How will it work in another 50 years? Better make some mass transit that is appealing.

Jon's photoshops were terrific, I agree.

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

Dan's last request for awhile. He wants another huge volcano bowl with Frankoma (salt and pepper shaker) Tikis around the bowl.
I'll have fun sending a photo of the finished bowl to Jonice Frank when it's done. That's how we met. I made a bowl with her design and a friend sent her a photo. She called me at work to tell me how much she liked it and we became friends.

I poured in the slip and let it sit in the bowl mold for two hours.


Dumped out he excess slip but since I had to put the bowl back flat on the table I wiped out more that ran into the bottom from the sides.


Not too bad. I let it sit overnight exposed like this.


The next day I flipped the bowl over and labeled the bottom.


This is how I do the flipping. I just hold the two boards together and turn it over.


To make the volcano I'm going to use a tubular mug that I also cast.


I cut out a hole in the center of the bowl and


wiped sticky clay around the hole where I want to stick on the mug.


I stuck it in place.


Then I spread out the clay into the bowl.


I put more sticky clay on a long paintbrush.


After cutting the tip off the mug I wiped the sticky clay around the mug on the inside.


I began to press in the sides to form the volcano.


I pinched off the top.


Then using this wooden ball I made the indentation.


I started to form the volcano but it was too soft and


began to sink. Only the trapped air is keeping it from melting like the bad witch of OZ.


Dan keeps me busy with his own Wish List. I hope this helps you all make your volcanos. Wendy

hang10tiki he just stands in the living room and makes wishes. A Giant Bob hummmmm.......

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


I missed posting yesterday as Dan and I ran around having fun in the sun before the rain starts tomorrow. I'll make up for it
now.

Maori number II. The first one had his tongue out. This guy is frowning.


I added clay to smooth out below his chin.


I next carved in the outlines.


Time for Moko.


Details show best when in light and


then dark photos.





All done with this guy.



I decided to see how well I could do a crazy Hawaiian shirt Tiki Bob. It will take a lot of different glazes to
bring out all the colors on this guys outfit.















It sure is fun to play with clay. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki congratulations on the loss. I'm still at 21 off and ready to start with Dan tomorrow. We shook hands last night that we would both work on it. Beautiful sunset.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN everyone. Here are the 13 photos that Dan allowed me to take. little lost tiki won that contest and has his necklace.









































Since it is supposed to start raining in Northern California today we went to the zoo. I've lived here my entire life and it's the first time I've gone at Halloween and seen the decorations.


My costume!




















We went to lunch and the server pointed out that


my total was appropriate for Halloween. He said to buy a lottery ticket. Maybe I will.


We went antiquing and I found these monkey's.


We didn't buy this...$175 but I thought it would be fun to show. We run into her every so often.



Once again Happy Halloween dearest friends. Cheers, Wendy
