Skip - Still going to do my best. Everyone needs deadlines to work against or else we can tend to be unproductive. There are a lot of other responsibilities that pull me away from art, but I need to make the time and these assignments keep me moving forward.

They should have been bisque fired (cone 04) last week. I will put them in for high firing (I think were going to cone 3) tonight. The first firing is to burn the organics out of the clay. The second one is to improve the strength and ability to resist stresses in the final ceramic product. It should help with durability and ability to withstand the weight of the contents of a planter.

Skip - The moai looked good after bisque firing. No cracking or spalling that I could see. Next step is high fire. I should get them back next Wednesday. About two weeks after that I will have the final fired pieces back (Dec. 30th) if all goes well.

Skip - drats...they didn't get them fired but they will go in tomorrow. I am planning on glazing them on the 23rd and putting them in on the same day. Still on track for the 30th unless there is another hiccup.

Hang10 - sent you a PM about Vegas meet and greet on the 22nd. Maybe the Golden Tiki first? Looking forward to finally getting to meet you.

Aloha,
First I want to give a Happy New Years shout out to the tiki tribe. It's been a fun year packed with a lot of firsts, like my first tiki convention (Tiki Kon) and my first official tiki mug (Taki Tiki, Edmonds, WA). But I think I will look most fondly on getting to know, and in some cases, getting to meet some of the tiki ohana from around the nation.

A few special shout outs...
Hang10-great getting to meet and spend time with you this Christmas. Had a great time.
TikiSkip - Thanks for being a killer trading partner. Look forward to more collaboration in the future.
Wendy - Thanks for all the guidance and collaboration. We should do it more often.
Henrick (aka Vantiki) - Thanks for the good times at Tiki Kon. I am hoping to make it down again this year, if only for fun.
Jason Alexander - It's been far too long since I made a trip down to T-town but we should be down in the next couple months I hope. I plan on coming bearing gifts. s
Rob@Shameful Tiki - Had a great time seeing the Shameful for the first time. It was great seeing Monica. Sorry I missed you but you were out doing the lords work getting a Shameful built in Toronto.
Paul, Niels and Barbara - Great meeting you all at Tiki Kon. Look forward to seeing you again this next year.
Brandon Powers - It was great getting to meet you at the Golden Tiki. You have a great thing going there. You should get Jason out there some time to guest bartend. I will send some shwag your way this year but it will probably take me 6 months to do it...yes, I'm just that slow.
Maui Rob - Thanks for hooking my friend Jared up in Maui. Got your trades ready, just let me know when your ready to go.
Notch - Thanks for taking on my King Ku request. Look forward to seeing your handiwork in my case.
Other Ohana - Thanks for the support and encouragement. I plan on keeping on this next year and learning more.

It's been a real fun and busy year and I have much to be thankful for.

Ok...now to the Kahiki Moai planter feet project results. Pretty happy in how they came out. They got a lot of comments from people that aren't even into tiki in my class. Skip, I think your instincts as an artist are right on!

These look great!
love to trade with tiki art type people.

"They got a lot of comments from people that aren't even into tiki in my class."
When people who are not tiki nutz say they really like one of my lights that's when I know it's a good one.
They even want to buy them without a tiki room to put them in, to me that's a bit odd.

Ok so I will send your light after the weekend, so Monday.
Will send email when I do ship it too.
Let me know if you need my address as well.

Can't wait to show you how many uses these things have.
So what would you charge for a set of these?

Great Job!!

Skip-Never thought about what I would charge for a set...it wasn't super easy to make them, so I doubt that it would be cost-effective. I would make more in trade though.

Skip-ok...I won't break the mold. I'll work on another set but take my sweet time.

Wendy-thanks. I wish I had more time. I have so many ideas and no time to do them.
