Thanks for the comments guys.

TikiGap He is pretty thin, I ground him down a little too much. I just hope I don't drop it.

Tama Thanks for the advise. I didn't get too far along on my first one, barely past the rough out phase, so I didn't loose too much time. I am more impressed now with your carvings.

Davez tikiz - Every carving is stepping out of what I know.

Paipo, thanks for posting the horn noises. If it wasn't for yours and Tama's guidance I couldn't have had a chance at carving rock. It is still a mystery.

Tikigap, my girls howl also when I blow these horns, the dog just hides.

TikiDav, Thanks that means a lot coming from you.

Benella Thanks X2

Gman Thanks for the compliment from a master carver and a Maori enthusiast.

As for the horns, I can't play music at all. I can just get out the sounds, but my father in-law actually made it sound like a trumpet with notes and everything. I'll try and record him. They are still fun to play with though.

My second project in jade was a set of ear rings for Mrs. JohnnyP. She wanted sea turtles. These are about 3/8ths of inch at the longest.






Not overly tiki, but inspired from the South Pacific. And encouraged to post by Gman.

Thanks for looking.

JP

Very nice; Im sure she'll love them!
(you might get past the tiki-police by saying there's also a frigate bird influence in there too..?)


Ive just remembered a poem stuck to our fridge by the late, great UK comedian, Spike Milligan. Based on a true story I believe...

---

Green earrings I bought her from Maori Shores.
When I returned, she had gone
and taken her ears with her.

Earrings made from Pacific Jade - you could see right through them.
Why didn't I see through her?

---

Beautiful, no?

*Better give them to Mrs P right now... Go!

Tama

JohnnyP,

Those are magnificent! She has to love those. What could be more oceanic art than a sea turtle? Making those little beauties was a tall order...especially with those dang blasted Chinese diamonds. You have THE touch my friend! Your next jade piece is gonna be scary-great! Don't keep us waiting too long.

-Gman

Hey Johnny
Nice work on the sea turtles...I can't even think of how patient you guys have to be to
carve that small stuff outta stone....and I dig the horn sounds....kinda reminds me of some of
my bamboo sax grunts!
Let's hope that cold spell is over for good so we can get outside and make some wood chips.
Sounds like you have a lot of work that needs your attention.

Gman, Nope not dead just swamped at work, and it's too cold to carve outside (I am wimping out this winter). The teko has been chilling out in the pole barn, not getting a whole lot of attention, but it supposed to start warming up so I may chop at it a bit more soon.

Thank you much for the comments on the ear rings, she liked them, In fact she wanted a matching necklace. The turtle is just under 2 inches long.








Thanks for looking.

JP

Nice one JP; I dig the wee undercuts around the shell. Its little details like that, that although go largely unnoticed (on a concious, oh-wow-look-at-that-undercut level), really give that extra life to a piece. Good eye!

She wont be taking her ears away now...
