Hey GMan...the boar turned out very cool...makes me hungry for a little pulled pork. And
all of your pendants are great...just remember to chop into big wood once in a while...just for
us guys who need their BIG GMAN FIX.

Benz - I tried to spend a buncha time in the studio today, thanks!

Hewey - I appreciate the note. I tried. JOneS is sporting the hog down at Huki. It was harder to do than it looks.

So, today I worked on a big cedar Maori Warrior and then worked on a Maori bone pendant. Pics of both are below.







I hope you like them as much as I do,

Gman

Go big, go small, go hard! Nice one Gman.
The colour change in the teko-teko looks cool, will it be apparent when finished? Also, what wood-type is it? Sorry if youve already mentioned... TTT

Man, it's been a long time since we've seen the big guy. Almost forgot what he looks like. This is better than you goin boar hunting.

You are crankin' on the bonz, getting better and better, now that I'm working on the Tekoteko I'm noticing a bunch more detail in the NZ art.

Good to see you back in the groove G. You're getting to be real pro with the bones now, I really like how you're pushing out with the detailed engraving. There's someone who could probably use some advice from you here.

I am back home from Hukilau and too tired for much more today. GMAn, I saw some of your work t Hukilau and the photos don't do justice to your Flying Pig and some bone work. Most excellent stuff.
I will post pic's tomorrow. G-nite

This last bone piece is excellent, I think has to be your best. I Love how the detail is cut in and rounded out. Looks like you spent a Lot of time on this guy. How long ago did you start him? He's rally Sweet.

Tama - The big warrior is carved from a cedar tree I harvested a while back. The color will show through most stains and I have finished them in a variety of ways. I'm not sure where I'll take this fella, but most likely quite dark. I have mixed my own stains that are very dark but still allow the reds to show through.

JP - It's been a long time since I've felt good enough to carry the big guy outside, let alone make any real progress on him. I removed a lot of wood from his bottom end, but he kicked my butt! When the heat got the best of me, I retired to the garage to work with the bonz.

Queen K. - Thanks for the kind note and for stopping in to see my carves. I appreciate your kind comment.

Paipo - Glad you like what I'm up to, but it all has to do with the toolz - or lack of them. Now I have most of what I need to make intricate bonz. Before I just had the bare necessities to get by. Good this will be happening now.

Benzo - Glad to hear the boar hog was well liked down at Huki. As for the bone posted above; it was in my head for a while - the whole time I was up in DC on travel. It was making me crazy, so I got home and worked like I was possessed and didn't stop until I was finished. I was totally spent after that session and had to take a day off.

So, today I started the rough out of a mini Maori warrior pendant who will be sporting carved moko and greenstone eyez. He is 4.75" tall and made from a nice thick piece of beef bone with lots of shape. Pics are below:









Thanks for looking,

Gman
