Aloha everybody!
Here's one of the pieces I'll have in the Art Show.
It's the original painting I did for the poster/postcards, but before I added the Tonga Hut tikis and the text.

It's based on the poster for the Academy Award winning Kon Tiki documentary from 1950.

Plugging away on more stuff, hopefully I'll have more to post soon!
Mahalo!

Here's a detail of something I have in the works for the Art Show... it's part of a larger piece... this is a close up of a shot glass that has a miniature Kon Tiki raft sailing on the rim.
Picking it up from In The Kiln after the bisque fire in a few days, fingers crossed the whole piece turns out OK... I'll post more progress shots if all goes well!

Cool idea, Eric. A buddy and I have talked about wanting a mug/bowl that took the form of the Kon-Tiki expedition raft. I dig the idea of the raft traveling round and round the top of the mug here.

Did I miss something about the Hut's anniversaries? I thought it just had it's 55th in 2013?

Cheers!

Ryan

Here are some Kon Tiki pendants I have in the works. They just need the clear glaze and a firing and they'll be ready to go!

To emphasize the theme of this month's parking lot sale and art show, for the first time on public display:



It will be like the Kon-Tiki itself is parking in North-Hollywood!

WOW!!! That is freakin' fantastic, Sven!!! Can't wait to see it in person!

Here's another of my humble tributes to the Kon Tiki Expedition.






It's a bowl celebrating the Expedition. The bowl is in the shape of the Raroia Atoll where the Kon Tiki raft made contact with Polynesia. The raft is a separate piece, on the rim of a shot glass.

I've had this piece in mind for a a very long time, and this show was the perfect opportunity to finally create it!

The atoll and raft are not to scale. If you look closely at the middle of the upper part of the atoll, you will see a line that I included that represents an airfield landing strip for planes to take off and land on the atoll.

See everybody on the 2nd!

Mahalo for the awesome complement, Sven! I'm quite pleased that it came out so well!

Hey Mike! Outside of posting my stuff on event pages, I've been too busy to catalog what I've been up to lately... there's just too much stuff!
