Hello all

I can not thank you folks enough for the comments and compliments it is really great to hear that my work inspires someone enough to post.

Over on the marketplace section I posted that this week we are having a 30% off sale (as seen here
http://www.tikibosko.com/boskoart/baframtc.htm ) for TC members on my framed wood art. These are the wood art pieces I put in shows with color bars etc…
I love doing these pieces they have an amazing quality and I had really hoped to get a whole new direction going but the overall production cost of these has proven prohibitive. Add to this if we are selling in a gallery setting they get 50% so as I said in the other post these are the last of the framed wood art. If you have ever had any interest in acquiring one this is your chance, I have a few frames left up in the shop and once they are gone I don’t plan on ever doing these again.
Below are a couple of non-Tiki pieces but I thought I’d show you some of my other Witco inspired work.


As always thanks for looking and everyone’s support.

Bosko

Sorry I know, I don’t post enough but when I’m working I am working and when I’m not I am off doing other art or yard work or whatever.
I picked up some dry cedar and (further) down below are a couple of results from the last week, I also have a large Ku up on the rack waiting to get sanded and finished, then I hope to do a few other new pieces.

But first last month saw this monster (1 meter across 3 meters tall) get carved for a job in Japan, I had to make a front and back which were channeled, each piece weighed 1400 lbs, the mouth got hollowed out in Japan and they are planning to put a fire “feature” inside. Because of the size and weight I had to work on the thing while it was laying on the ground and then had to have the back head dress match up to the front.















This weeks Maori and New Guinea inspired pieces, hope to have more to show you in the next few weeks.











My very best Alohas

Bosko

Wow Bosko - incredible as always!! Great mask at the bottom. I hadn't seen the Whale Watching piece either, I really like it.

I'm happy to say that you are the one who inspired me. Keep on inspiring Bosko.
Did you ever complete the water feature?

Great stuff, Bosko.

Where in Japan is the first piece going to reside?

Love that subtle use of color on the second two.

I wanted to add, that lately I have been obsessed with getting my work as closely symmetrical as humanly possibly and then you post the PNG shield/mask and blow that concept out of the water. That's a good thing. Deliberate and perfectly imperfect.

THIS is the Bosko stuff I personally dig. Can't go wrong with contemporary traditional. I'd LOVE to see this sucker installed.

Wow! Incredible stuff. But I have to comment on the Maori-esque piece. That is really a look I like, that added, super-subtle blue and green highlight totally works on me! I will be copying...errr...ahh, I mean, inspiring me to do something like that!

That's a massive work of tiki, Bosko. Really nice work, and congrats on the successful match up work on the front and back.

Did you have that log ripped at a mill?

Gotta be a tough carve when you can't stand it up and take a few steps back to eyeball it.

Shipping costs have gotta be insane on that.



Nice work on the Maori and New Guinea inspired pieces also, love the touch you have with the color treatment.
