Tiki Ano I wish Dan and I looked as good in our selfie as the tiki does. How about a Tiki Ari update?

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

Progress report and Step by Steps for kingstiedye designed Wish based on Dave Burke's art called DEATH TIKI.

This first photo is a sneak peek at kingstiedye other request and on the right is Munktiki's version of the David Burke mug that designed and I'm making for him now.


This is a side view of one of the legs.


I had built the tikis left knee and


here's the right one finished.


I started with the arms and


then enlarged the chest. The top of the head is started and I'll continue to add clay until it's just right.


Next the first piece of the head has added.


Side view.


Each time I added a slab of clay I had to add small connective pieces.


All the way around the top until


I had the head covered. If an air bubble is trapped under this flap this tiki is going to blow up in the kiln.


Now this one sits overnight to firm up. Right now the clay is limp.

I really enjoy the Wish List projects. Thank you all for using my hands. Idle hands get into trouble and we wouldn't want that!

Cheers, Wendy

This is going to be a good one...

(okay, ANOTHER good one).

Wendy, Maya took Tiki Ari for another photo shoot, and I was even able to convince her to bring one of his Aloha shirts... shocking, I know. He's getting big fast. I need to do a clay imprint of his hands and feet sooner than later...

Hi Friends, there has been a lesson to be learned from these Wish List requests. They sometimes involve material that has a copy write by another artist. When I started this project it was impersonal for me because I'd never seen the DEATH TIKI before nor did I know Dave Burke Art. After I started this project it became a bit unsettling when directed to his facebook page. He has been notified that I'm doing this 1 mug for a fan of his and that will end with just this one. He has posted since I wrote to him and he hasn't asked me to stop. I hope my mug will inspire him to have one made because his design is really creepy cool.

kingstiedye it's been interesting Bullet. I hope we don't have to take one for this project.


TikiAno not only is he Tiki Ari he's a tiki tot! What a beautiful boy. Love the shirt too. Are your ceramics made for him in his room?


LoriLovesTiki copying is harder than creating so I really appreciate the compliments posted here. The Wish List is always a challenge that I relish, sometimes with mustard and ketchup too.


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

kingstiedye came for a visit and got to watch me progress through the steps. The Dave Burke DEATH TIKI now has a face and the trim is started.


I shortened the head as I worked around to the backside.


More trim done.


kingstiedye aka Bullet is watching over my shoulder as I work. Tweak it here Wendy...not really.


I get this far and now the tiki


needs to rest and


to fir up.


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

Thank you all for your support and comments. Every one is special. Wendy

hang10tiki kingstiedye will be very happy to hear that. No word from Dave Burke.

Tyber Tiki is does look kind of real.

IDoVoodoo I want to resemble that remark. I see Tonie is doing a wonderful job on project #3. I'll have to work hard on your other two wishes to keep up with her. I'm so happy that the referral worked out.

hang10tiki he does speak in full sentences. He said, "I love daddies tiki mugs."

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

The finishing touches to kingstiedye's Dave Burke/vintage bottom tiki mug for Wish List #5.



I always turn my mugs upside down once they start to firm up so that I can fine tune the rest of the carving.


Each section as smoothed and where thin more clay was added.


I carved the bottom of each face shingle to match the painting better.


Now I've added a bit of cracks to finish off the mug.








Now it will sit for a month to dry out extremely slowly because of the thick areas of clay. If it doesn't crack then the next hurdle will be the bisque fire. I'm not sure that there are no trapped air bubbles. We'll find out once more projects are completed and it's time to fire.

Cheers, Wendy

Oh good, you saw the Shrunken Monkey/Severed Hand set? I am glad!

And don't you worry, I have faith in your excellent skills and art; everything you sculpt is genius!

Cannot wait to see more!
