teaKEY, Big Kahuna and VampiressRN, thank you for the posts and comments. I've been so busy that I didn't get back to work on these sculpts until yesterday. Now they are done. I just need to hook up with Roge in Grass Valley so the next step can be taken to make the Bumatay lamps. Finally I'm getting all these projects done. Cheers, Wendy

Yesterday turned on a dime. I put away all of my clay tools so I could start painting the mugs when Roge said, "hey I can meet you at my shop today". So we jumped in the car and did the 4 hour round trip from Elk Grove to Grass Valley.

We dropped off the sea life sculptures and picked up a few Bumatay heads.

We also had fun seeing his lamps that are on Etsy for sale. Here's our day.

Roge gets the box of my sculpts.


A corner of his workspace.


The Bumatay.


A table with the Moai head the Bumatay. Also an assortment of whales by Miguel.


Miguel has made a whale of a chunk lamp. His looked so good I am extra excited to see how mine turns out.


Dan turns on the lamps so we may enjoy them.


The lamp in the middle is an experiment that worked. The resin is neither clear nor black it is rose. A whole new ambiance.


Roge hopes to mold the sculpts with Miguel tomorrow and to have the first prototype lamp ready by May 1st!

I hope you all have a special day. Wendy

I like all those little sculpted sea life additions you're making - really takes the chunk lamp to a new level. endless possibilites going down this road.... keep it up !!

I would like to see you cast some half round bamboo pieces.... I can see these with molded bamboo cast pieces in various colors with bits of the chunks thrown in around them....maybe glue a bunch of vertical half round bamboo pieces side by side on a piece of wood to cast as light panels on a four sided lamp...in colors !!

Hey Tipsy thank you. I'll pass on your idea to Roge. He's constantly working on new designs.

bigbrotiki it is so much fun to have you watch what we are doing.

Cheers, Wendy

The lamps keep getting better and better! I saw these two cool vintage Moai table lamps on ebay and wondered if they were Roge's work?

Hi Dusty Cajun, well this is a small world. MadDogMike shared the making of your tiki wine glass with me step by step and now I get to talk to you.

The answer is no they are not his. He did chunk lamps without tiki or other extras. He didn't have any tikis associated with them until I did the sculpts of the Moai and Sun God.

Next up from Roge will be the Bumatay lamp with sea life creatures. He just got them molded. We go see him next week to design the lamp we want. Soon after he'll take orders. I'll post when he is ready with examples.

Are you bidding on those lamps? Cheers, Wendy

Last week we drove to Grass Valley to see Roge.

Here's a report on the Bumatay Chunk lamps.

These are the masters for each sea creature.


Roge is developing the Bumatay he'll offer for sale.


It is always fun to see what he has accomplished. I ordered a Bumatay lamp for us so in less than a month I'll have photos for you.


Cheers, Wendy

Here's Roge's site for orders. He has pre made Tiki Lamps for sale now.

I would love to be able to buy a clay or resin bumatay, do you think Roge would be down?

Hale Tiki Roge stays in his shop working. To buy a lamp just check out his Etsy site. You can special order your favorite colors. Check out Steve's below.

Yesterday we headed up the highway to Grass Valley to Roge shop. It was time to pick up our Bumatay Lamp. These lamps do not photograph well when lit but they look great in person.

I brought the tikis with the new bases added on for him to mold. Then he'll offer two versions. One that hangs on the wall and one that stands on its own. Those could be set on a window ledge with the light shining through.


This is my Bumatay Lamp. If you look hard you will see that some of the chunks are actually sea creatures from puffer fish to octopuses.





Roge gave us a gift of a photo of a lamp that he had enlarged. Very cool.


We got a sneak peek at Steve Soto's lamp in progress. It was a beautiful color choice.


Roge has gone back to his roots and pulled out another design. This one is not a box it is a tube. Lights on.


Lights off.


Miguel shows his work.


Here is a tiki free lamp.


Their work is for sale on Roge. Here's the link.
