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
