Benz, I think you'll find they are stacks of STONE! So I'm the one who should be drooling....

Man, you're just pumping out non-stop great stuff Haikai. That Maori wax carving would make a great bronze pendant!

Howdy friends,

hiltiki,
thanks for your motivating words. That do so good!

tikiracer,
I´ll put you on the list. But it needs a little bit more time before the key fob will be finished.
First I must check out the handling with the resin, because I´ve never worked with that material.
I´ll keep you up and post pictures!

Benzart,
that´s great words from the master! Thanks a lot! It´s like Paipo said. Sadly, that´s not my wood stacks, but it would be beautiful. Than I would be a rich man. No, that´s not wood, that´s stacks of stone from my neighbor´s tombstone factory.
Here is a picture of his stone treasure! I remember, he told me that his most stones came from Asia and Italy.
Most impressively I tink, are the big stacks in the background. That´s realy big and heavy stone plates.
I´m very happy about my neighbor and his heavy stones, because he own some forklift. So, I´ve never problems with my big logs.



benella,
thanks for the compliment! I have to be bussy, because you learn very fast and will catch me soon.
Great work on your new lono.

Paipo,
thanks, that words are a big honor for me. The stone stacks could be the right playground for you!
That would be realy, many, beautiful Paipo pendants!
Last friday, I delivered the wax carving at the jeweler in Munich. Now, they will figure out the mold
and make a prototype. Than we´ll consider about the next steps and perhaps a proper necklace.
Your idea to make the ring in bronze is great! I´ll include it at the next meeting.

Greetings to all and knock on wood (stone), Haikai

I can see it now - a tiki tombstone!!

Here lies AlohaStation,
he died as he lived,
without any comotion,
slumped over a tiki
for some stupid advertising promotion!

OK, I can see Clearly now and yes it IS a Pile for Paipo but I'd love a few slabs myself. Thanks.

Aloha guys!

I have some new pictures for you. Yesterday, I continued to create more plaster models for my resin project.
A few minutes ago I finished with the moai pendant.

The marquesan moon:


That´s the little maori:


The hawaiian cracker:


And at last the happy moai:


Mahalo, Haikai

Thanks Benella!
First I´ll try out some trials with the resin pendants and by the way I´ll start next week
with a carving job. It´s going to be a Ku. My first one! And after the Ku I´ll figure out
one more tiki for the London Luau´s "Art Show". I´m not sure, what kind of tiki it will be.
But more soon....

Have a nice weekend and mahalo,

kai

Aloha!

I have some new carving pictures for you. Last weekend "Forbidden Paradise" visited the biggest island
of Germany in the Baltic Sea.
Michael (ramba-zamba) and me were invited for a carving job at the "Surfhostel" at the island Rügen.
We started our trip last Friday and crossed the complete contry from the south to the north.
On Saturday morning, I started to carve the tiki out of an 10 feet tall cottonwood log.
That was a realy fat and heavy log and we had only 2 days to get him ready.
So I was very happy about my bussy assistant Michael, who grinded his fingers bloody.
We worked above 10 hours per day and finished the tiki at Sunday evening at 10 o´clock. Puuuu!!!
On monday morning we went back to Bavaria with a realy strong muscle ache.

In the middle of July we´ll visit the the "Surfhostel" for 10 days again.
We´ll carve one more tiki, make a little exibition in their tiki bar and a sales stall.
So, here are the pictures.....

Mahalo and a great week,

Haikai

Very cool. 2 days - you must be sore! Sounds like this could be a cool place to visit.

Master Haikai....

These pictures are just awesome! Thanks for showing us the steps you took on this monster. You German guys are simply some of the best carvers around....please keep carving and posting.

After seeing these photos, I have to go out and buy a chain saw!

Peace.

Haikai, your sculpture is just beautiful. You are one of the best artists posting on TC. One of these days you should come to L.A. and carve some stuff for us.
