I finally have some progress pics to post.

The bowls I'm creating, I realized, don't really look like bowls...

Here's a square bowl: the Stockton Islander:


The A-frame roof comes off. Straw holes are cut into the windows under the outrigger beam on front and back.

Here's a vertical bowl: Cassowary


There is a PNG spirit board between the Cassowary's legs to fill out that space, and cocktail goes down there, too.

The most bowl-like is extra-bowl-like, as it circles all the way in 365 degrees:


The bowl is covered in Tapa patterns, and the lid is ringed withs: Hawaiian, PNG, Tangaroa, Marq and Maori. The top sports a Moai. All the tikis are fire chambers, so with six, this may be the most fire-chambered bowl ever!

CASS and TOBUNGA!!!!!!!

Your stuff is looking


GROG looking forward to seeeing what the other artists get done for the bowl show. Cray Al, Tiki Diablo, Tiki Tony, Johnny Velour, and an MP/ Ruzic collaboration---all should have some really nice stuff.

Tiki Roots Rocka, Buzzy, and Babalu said they were hoping to get a bowl done for the show, but were more on the "maybe" side. Babalu is in China right now and he's Buzzy's source for clay and firing, so they may not get something done in time for the show.


Pulled these out of the kiln this morning: (Some were fixes that had to be refired) 1 Tiki Bob Bowl, 2 Primitive GROG Moai Bowls, 5 Wangaroan Bowls, 3 Wang Shots, and 1 pair of Salt and Pecker Shakers.

Artists with stuff for the bowl art show: (If everybody does bring/send stuff)

Crazy Al, Tiki Diablo, Tiki Tony, Cass, Tobunga, GROG, Wendy(Danlovestikis), Johnnie Velour, Mp/Ruzic.

Vendors: (so far)

Crazy Al,GROG, Tobunga, Johnnie Velour,Tiki Roots Rocka, Mahalo Tiki, Smokin' Tikis.

GROG trying to get some vendors with stuff for the ladies--Jewelry/earrings, vintage wear, purses, hair accessories etc. but not having too much luck so far.

Music;
Kitty Chow and Fisherman at 4pm, The Glasgow Tiki Shakers at 6pm. Tonga Tom DJing in the parking lot during art show/vending.

GROG need to talk to Tonga Hut, but GROG think if you buy a bowl at the event and order a drink for it, maybe you can get a discount on your drink.

That's hilarious, Cass. GROG like.

It looks pretty large. GROG have to figure out how we're going to display all these babies. GROG not think GROG usual mug display has wide enough shelves.
