Jeez, you're stepping it up with every piece these days. This guy is a little masterpiece! It's not easy to put that level of character and expression into a tiki but you've made it look natural. You've obviously had a fair bit of artistic background before you started making tikis?

Aloha fiends,

Thanks congatiki, appreciate the kind words. Yes, the ball "tongue" is funny, I got that idea while I was creating the mouth.
It´s like a little pearl in a shell or coconut. Rather a coconut because it looks like "the grandfather" has no teeth.

GMAN, thanks for visiting my thread. I´m very enthused from your last carving. I think it is realy one of your best carving.
Great form and style.

benella, thanks for your great german words and compliments. This time I have a lots of fun to work with chisels and to try out different textures. It´s great how many options there are.
Tomorrow, I will start my holyday trip to country and I´m looking forward to stay 2 weeks at the Atlantic Ozean.
Surfin, beachcombing and just hanging around. Perhaps I´ll carve a tiki on the beach.
Than I´ll make some pictures and post them here.

Paipo,thanks a lot! You are right, it´s realy not easy to put character and expression into a tiki.
I must admit that I had a lot of luck while I was creating that tiki figure.
I try to escalate myself with creating the bodys much more detailed than by my previous tikis.
It´s very difficult to cave hands and feets. It´s a big step!
Yes, I studied 4 years to become a graphic designer and already earlier I had lots of fun in painting and doing handicrafts.
In my short free time I keep busy with photography.

So guys, before I hop off into my holydays, I have one more picture of my London Luau tikis for you.
Yesterday, they started there trip to London. I hope it´ll be not to stressful for "the grandfather".
Have a nice time and see you in two weeks,

Haikai

"the grandfather" and "the beatnik"

HaiKai, I Really Love your "Grandfather". I think he is Hilarious with his ball tongue. He is Very expressive and I can feel the pain of his Old Bones, he must have worked Hard all his life. The Beatnik Son is Perfect too, What a Pair.
Excellent and Very well done. Your Giant tiki is looking Impressive too.
Good Stuff!

Aloha everyboy!

I hope you are all fine. Now it´s high time, to post some new pictures on TC.
Since May, noting is happend with this thread. Sorry!
But I was very busy in my job and get about a lot in this last weeks.
I spend two wonderful weeks in France at the Atlantic Ocean.
I collected many driftwood, stones and mussels, but I was addle and didn´t carve in my holidays.
When I arrived back home, I created 4 big Tiki masks out of paper-mâché for a Tiki Party in Nürnberg.
In June we visited with Forbidden Paradise the Rockin Hangar Festival in Switzerland.
A great event like every year with dangerous cars, airplanes, nice people, beautiful weather and bavarian Tikis.
The last 10 days of July we spend on the biggest island of Germany. The island Rügen!
Together with the "Surfhostel Rügen", we arranged a 1 week south sea festival with different entertainment.
- Forbidden Paradise art show
- cinema with surf and exotic movies
- Tiki painting for kids
- live carving every day
- a slide show from an Austrian family, which sailed 3 years through the south sea
- concerts, partys and a drum circle ...

It was a fantastic week with realy nice people, lots of Tiki and wanderlust feeling.
Now we are back and gear up for the next events. We´ll decorate some Hawaii events,
visit the Road Devil´s "Rod & Kustom Show" with our artworks
and accompany the "European Tiki Modern Tour" with Sven and Jochen.

Slowly, Tiki awakened in Germany!

Well I want to thank benella, Benzart, MAILMAN76, hewey, hiltiki and Clarita for there nice words on my last Tikis. Thanks!

Special thanks to benella for your worry messages! You see I´m fine and I don´t forgot you guys.
The hollydays were fantastic and I hope I could visit your country soon again.

So, eventually I have some interesting pics for you!

Perhaps, you can remember on my ring projekt, which I did with the jeweler from Munich.
In the first pic you can see the wax model and than the finished sterling silver ring.



Also it gives a necklace of these Tiki. In the near future I´ll post more pictures of the jewelry.


That´s the 4 paper-mâché Tiki masks. No.1 and no.2 has the same form but different colors.


And the Marquesa and Papua New Guinea mask. The last mask is the biggest one.
You´ll see it when I´ll post the pictures of Rügen in the next days.


Here are some pics of the hangar festival. If you want to see more, visit our homepage:
www.forbidden-paradise.com
That´s one of our big oak Tikis and the sales booth in the background.


Michael´s canvas!


Smoking kills!


That´s me and a new cotton wood Tiki. I don´t finish it yet. And the sales booth with the dark and dangerous Tiki!


And here a tiny choice of the crazy cars!




I hope you enjoyed it. The pics of my resin pendants and of the Rügen week with the new giant Tiki will follow in the next days. The giant Tiki is bigger that the last one!

Mahalo and greetings,

Haikai

Kia ora Haikai - Man, you've been having all the fun! Good to see some new works from you; all top-shelf as we've come to expect! The Maori casting is great and your friend Michaels paintings look very slick/interesting.

Tiki-Madness is alive and well in Germany!

Thanks for saving me the need to bump your thread and ask what you've been doing! Looks like you've got a great crew happening for collaborations and promoting the whole tiki vibe in Germany. Eagerly awaiting some new carving pix.....
