TikiWahine - Thanks. I hope this Honu likes cold weather.

Benz - I'm trying to keep the lines flowing, but some critters just don't lend themselves well to it. Well to hell with 'em, we can make 'em flow if we want to!

JOneS - I like animal crackers! As for the bone, you how I get them Like butta!

Surfin - Thanks for stopping by. Show us that Tang you have going. I'm sure we would all love to see it. Quit having so much fun!

Benz - A bone to pick with me? Sure, you can come over and pick meat off these bones with me. Someone has to do it. Yes, yes, there are bonz for today.....see below.

Here is a 8.25" bone Maori teko in progress. Still lots and lots to do, but we are having some bad thunder storms and poor Earnie is scared to death. It's time for me to stay with him and watch some TV. This carving will get mounted in a box frame and will be a part of my collection.







Thanks for looking,

Gman

This one's looking really good already, what's up with the darker tones on the ouside?
Did you stain it? Aparently a soak in cold tea works wonders with bone.

Paipo - Yeah, I soaked this one in tea before I started so I could see my cuts/depth better. Once I'm done I'll soak him again to put some age on him. Thanks for checking in

Conga,

I'm trying to work the "S" curve that is so common in Maori works. Any appearance of disco or any other pose is definitely NOT what was going for. Ack!

WOW, Looks great. Now you are in a strange territory where he isn't a Small carving and you need More tools than you have and he isn't a Large carving,you can't use your "Big" tiki tools. How ever you are cutting away the bone, you seem to not have a problem with it. Nice form and flow!.

Really, really nice work Gman. I love the sharks and the turtles too. What kind of bone is that large piece? (you don't have to tell if you don't want to )

"This is tiki from the roots. This is the stuff that inspired the stuff we drink to and dream about."

JP - Thanks for that. That's the kind of stuff that keeps me going. Hopefully I will be able to finish him out nicely and he'll become a permanent part of the collection. Then we can drink and be inspired.

Finky - I'm glad you like these pieces. The big guy is Beef - "it's what's for dinner!" I'll have a few more big guys coming soon. It's time for you to show us your bone carvings. I know you are working on them....

-Gman

Great man. Looks like you're enjoying this change - Im loving all of these bone guys myself.

How about a one piece dagger with a fully carved handle?

GMAN, your "bone guys" are great. A definite inspiration. I don't think I'll be able to go into a butcher shop without thinking of you!

Hewey and Heath,

Thanks for stopping by. Yes sir, I am having fun. It's been a long time since I carved in bone, since like 89 or 90. I'm seriously tool limited anymore, but I'm happy with what I'm doing. I have lots of things drawn out and a few more pieces I want for my own collection. In the meantime I'll be working on the big cedar tekoteko and the usual other carvings. Maybe with TS Ernesto hanging around I will stay inside and work on the bone teko. I have a buggy run/hill climb this weekend and I'm gonna try not to wind up in the ER again

-Gman

You need to be less tool limited.

Be careful with the rail. Wear your safety gear.
