How many skulls can I fit in one tiki pendant?..answer..so far 8, but I think I can beat that record someday!






Sometimes I start carving a tiki with no idea of where I am going with it! This leads to some interesting designs... This is one of those tikis!!

Kickin ass Kirby!

I like this guy, and its cool how you can just freestyle like that and get a great result.

I gotta let go more, I stress so much trying to match the picture in my head.

Is this a one-off or are you making duplicates?

That's killer. My hat's off to you for being able to produce a killer design totally off the top of your head. I always get mental block when I try to do that.

That looks beautiful, Kirby. And knowing where it was created only makes it better.

KIRBY, You have Really stepped it up and given us some High standards to meet! Your "Skull" tiki is Just FantastiSkull! The KU is Totally Awesome as is the Drum and I can't believe the amount of detail you are getting now, VERY RESPECTFUL.
Spontaneous Carving produces some of the most Free and Innovative pieces you will ever do, I'm Happy to see you have the confidence to do this.
Excellent Stuff.

Nice new carves Kirby!

Saw the Hawaii carve on Facebook, no better inspiration then sitting under a palm tree on a tropical island! It turned out great!

What to say about the Ku? Incredible work! Of course the base is what caught my eye first... sweet Tapa design and great color scheme! The rope puts a nice touch to it
all and frames it in nice. Then the details in the tiki... love the jutting lower jaw, like he's standing guard with a "Hhhhhrumppphhh!"

Got me all stoked to carve a log now... gotta get my flatwork all done first!
