TikiHula ahhh thank you. Let's go to Tiki Oasis next year and hang with all the cool cats. I wonder what the theme will be.

hang10tiki more wonderful photos. I hope there are more to come. Did you stay today or head home?

LoriLovesTiki I'm so happy to know the box arrived safely. Dan is a wonderful packer.

hang10tiki I feel so good when I see your photos. Thank you for the gift of your time and effort.

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

I'm catching up my photos. Here's four days worth of work on the Sacramento Crawl mugs.

I need an unglazed spot to mark the 1/50, 2/50 etc. on the bottoms. I cut pieces of painters blue tape and put in on the bottom of each of the mugs.


Then I walked around each table and painted over the tape covering the bottoms with glaze.


I finished the bottoms in one day.


The next morning I decided that I needed to do more of the sides before flipping them over. This photo shows how far down the sides I ran the glaze. Another day gone.


The mugs dried overnight and now on the third day I flipped them over and glazed from under the rim down.


One table down two to go.


Now all three tables full have one layer done. They dried overnight.


On the fourth day I did the second layer


and put them on trays on the floor as I worked.


Glaze layer number two done after 9 hours of work. One more layer left to do.


GROG you should have come here to glaze instead of having fun at Tiki Oasis. Not fair.

Cheers, Wendy

lunavideogames thank you for letting me know. Now I'll start a painting for the Tiki Oasis show this winter.

I took a couple of photos of Dan's Tiki Bob volcano bowl.





Cheers, Wendy

Now that I'm putting on the third layer of glaze I am also adding one more layer to the top edge and


pulling off the blue tape so I can number them.





Once they were all done they went into the 90 degree heat of the backyard to dry out for several hours.


Into the kiln. I was just able to do three layers. 21 mugs per load.


I brought the rest of the mugs into the shed where it will get real hot.



Dan surprised me by putting boxes together. There's still a lot left to do. Before they go into the boxes but this just puts us a step ahead.




I hope everyone is safely home from Tiki Oasis.

Cheers, Wendy

TikiHula we miss you. We are having fun working each day on Tiki projects. I'll be posting the changes that are occurring.
Love your new Tonie mug.

hang10tiki you just put that song in my head again! Our Sacramento Crawl is so much fun. Some year you have to come meet our Ohana and see all the homes.

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

I opened the kiln to find all those coconuts waiting to be removed.


I still plan to paint them with some pin-striping gold paint to highlight the tiki and lettering.


The second of three shelves. I can't put a mug under the thermal couple on the left because it shoots out specks of black metal.


21 out of the kiln.


21 more into the kiln to fire.


closing the lid.


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

I took Dan to have his favorite bowl of soup. That's my bowl in front of his!


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

I took Dan to have his favorite bowl of tostadas.


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

Now that I've bribed him I got out my list of honey-do's.

The first was to take me on a day trip to Davis, California. It's about 45 minutes from our home.
Recently we saw that Brenda's Tiki Hut had gone for a walk there and we wanted to do the same.

Here's the start to the University of Davis Arboretum walk. Those are shovels.


We found Dan's favorite flower. He'd better watch out for that big beetle.


Gotta take a selfie.


Then when we walked through the town we found this


and this. We were there so early all the shops were closed.


Thank you for the visit. Time to work, Wendy

Wendy singing the coconut song
Now that would be a great video

The color on the coconut mugs is great

I knew it
Dan-0 is just to busy to not have a twin

Those are some fine looking coconuts....

I wanted to add to Jon's photos of Oasis- I didn't take too many, so enjoy...

Late on Sunday at the pool- a LOT less crowded:


Car show:







The Rum Revolution seminar with Martin Cate:



Photo since I'd think you'd appreciate the mascot- I called him Che Bob ("Rum Revolution," ha)







You and Dan were missed, and more than one person talked about your whereabouts...

Dan, if you were any better you'd be twins!
Wendy, the crawl mugs are beautiful - nice glazing. My kiln was starting to take forever to fire to ^04 so I bought new elements and am going to try and replace them - wish me luck

Hi Wendy -

Thanks for the kind words and YES! I have the "clay zombie" mug from 2009 - as you know the clay does not hold up well even though the mug is usually wrapped up secure and boxed...
...I thought you would enjoy the attached photos I took last night of this very same piece:







With or without the cracks this mug is still one of my prized poly-pop possessions. Thanks Wendy and Dan for all the tiki goodness. G

hang10tiki I love this photo because I just can't have enough Dan's. Thank you so much.

lunavideogames I'm happy with how they have turned out and having some good responses makes my day. My goal is to make them look vintage but of a very good quality.

TikiAno you guys and gals can never put too many photos on here for us to enjoy. I appreciate them very much. Thank you.

MadDogMike you are so brave. I hope my elements will last a long time because I fire with a high of 04 when my kiln will go to 10.
I am wishing you luck on the repair and also on not catching anything from the river water bucket challenge.

TikiG Hi, I'm so glad I wrote to you asking. I have a dozen of my original sculpts made the same way. Two were out in my kiln shed and the rest are in my house. The one's that were subjected to heat and cold cracked. Those in the house are still just fine.

Would you consider a swap? I'll send you a ceramic surprise in exchange for this cracked beauty?

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

I'll have to post photos tomorrow. I'm beat. I'll show you what we have been up to that has taken my strength and is sending me to bed right now. It would have been great to have had two Dan's for the last few days.

Cheers, Wendy
