Aloha,

Polynesiac, thanks for your nice words and visiting my website.
I hope the website is also interesting for you american guys.
To know a little bit what happen with tiki in Germany/Europe.
Cross the pond and and enter Europe; we need much more pirates like you!

seeksurf and Tahitiki, thanks for your compliments.

AlohaStation, thanks!
First, I colored the marquesan tiki with moorbrown wood stain.
Then I took a broad brush with a little bit orange acrylic and
colored softly over the wood surface.
So the color adhere only at the highest parts of the carving texture.
And for the finish I polished the wood with antique wax. So, all the color is fix.

I hope you understand, what I try to explain with my english skills.

Wish you all a nice weekend! Mahalo, Haikai

I knew I missed something: your new pix. Thanks for those pix.

Very nice carvings.
Every single new marq you do is always different and more beautiful than the previous, so How do you do ?
I'm always very impressed with your work.
I hope to see new stuff very soon

Franken tiki and bone tiki are very good too. I've waited but I'm not disappointed !

Hey Benzart, I´m happy that you visited my thread. Thanks!
This week I´ll start with two new carvings. A three feet Ku out of cherry wood
and a cottonwood mask. Perhaps in the beginning of Dezember I´ll carve a new giant
seven feet oak tiki. So furthermore I´ll be busy in carving.

I realy like your myspace picture gallery, it´s a own "Book of Tiki". Your carvings are so lovely!


Salut benella my neighbor, thanks for your nice words.
To create always new tikis or one figure in different styles, is the greatest job for me.
It´s always a new challenge , but that´s the fun and makes a great result.
You create step by step and learn more.

For me it would be boring to carve always the same tiki. It´s a work for a machine!
I`ll busy and let you know if I have new pixs!
Keep on carving, you make a good job!

Greetings, Haikai

Great work! Luv the glaze on the mug - it's really cool. As is the acrylic highlights on the marq.

Hi man,
it is always a pleasure to see some new stuff of yours.
By next year you can stop doing all the advertising stuff and focus fully on the tiki-cult, I suppose.
Joking apart, you do a great job with all those new ideas to come up with. That is a real guide to me. Drop me a note for next years tiki-tour. I would appreciate to talk
tiki with you in person someday.
By the way, are there plans for the next walldorf weekender? Or anything else in my neighbourhood (NRW)?

Rock on, tok-tok

hiltiki, I do my best to jolly you guys along. Thanks for your nice words! Ill be back....

TheBigT, thanks also for your kind words. I attached importance that the mug have such a
marmorate glaze and not only one color. So, I think that some parts of the mug comes out
more interesting and it looks a little bit like an old mug.

tok-tok, "...stop doing all the advertising stuff and focus fully on the tiki-cult..."
That would be a fantastic life. But I think that more people on TC have this dream.
"Tiki carver thats my regular job" sounds good. Perhaps sometimes... and than Ill be very
At this time Ill start planing the events and exhibitions for next years.
Ill let you know if something happen. It would be great to talk tiki with you in person.

Basement Kahuna, Im very proud that you visting my thread. I visiting your thread too and
so I go also every time out and buy a tall, frosty Paulaner and toast you..



Thanks guys and have a nice week, Kai

Aloha!

Thanks AKUAE, I visited your thread and was happy, when I saw how busy you are.
Nice Tikis, especially the Moai is realy well done.
Have fun and keep it on!

Here are some new pics for you!
I have carved two new tiki masks in the same style like the first one.
I carved it in summer 2008 and now I dilate it to a tiki trio.
They are all out of cotton wood, colored with wood stain and polished with antique wax.

Have a nice weekend, Kai

Thats the older mask!

no. 2

and no. 3

And all together!

Kai, these are really nice masks. Great style as always. I can see them turning into many aftermarket items also. Imagine them framing some art in their mouths. Or as a sconce on a wall and a type of diffused light or lamp inside the mouth.

Or something like these simulated fires in the mouth...

They look great stand-alone though too!

Aloha!

Benella, thanks for visiting my thread so constant.
Hope you feel fine and you are busy in carving some new french gods.

Lake Surfer, thanks for you great suggestion. Yes, it realy lend itself to create something
for the cut-out at the mouth. I like your idea to use them as a wall lamp with a diffused light.
The masks already change their owner, but I will grab the idea sometimes for an other project.
It would be also funny as a frame for an aquarium or a display!

Seeksurf, thanks for your comment and the tip. The charm of the masks is that`s a trio
and they supporting themselves.The new owner of the masks hang them up on a wall of his bedroom.
The wall is decorate with a snake paperhanging.



Now, I think its time for a new "Tiki Microcosms" and some progress pictures.
When I read bigbrotikis tread about
Tiki Microcosms a long time ago, I was very inspire and created the Voodoo Box.
Now, Ill start a new project with an old wooden first aid box. It should become a box with some
niceties inside. Perhaps with a native shack, some tiki figures, a campfire, a sacrificial altar
and especially some light effects. I dont want to lay down someting, yet.
Ill try to create it in an old and authentic style.

Now, I have the first pictures for you. Ill only be busy after my regular job on this project, because itll take a lots of time.
But we have long and cold winter evenings in Bavaria.

Currently, I grinded the old first aid box and lay down a PNG styled pattern on the door.
In the next step Ill countersink the pattern. Hope you like the first pics!

Kai
