Not a bad weeks work. Thanks for sharing.

I like the Moai; very clean/crisp. Almost Meso-American 'glyph-like'.

Also, the cut-away areas of the Maori spear-head/patu almost make it a Kotiati/'liver-cutter'...

Thanks everyone!

Hewey, I actually thought of that, but I thought it might look a bit to much like GMAN's awsome hammerhead pendant, so tuning it upside down made it look more unique. Happy Birthday, mate!

Conga, I'll do what I can!

Polynesiac, Thanks for the kind words! No hook knife, mostly roto-tools and lots of hand sanding. There's a bunch of coats of poly on him to so he's real smooth.

GMAN, If I thought for a moment that I could make the same amount of money carving as I do at my crappy job I would do it in a heartbeat! Thanks for everything.

Tamapoutini, My wife made similar comments about the Moai. But calling my spear-thing a Kotiati/'liver-cutter' totally made my day! That's cool! Thanks again for all your interest and advice!

Wanted to experiment with color. I'm not sure if I achieved what I wanted or not, but I think it's interesting anyway.



A view from the bottom so you can see the curve


Thanks for looking!

Mate, looks very interesting. I would suggest cover that whole section where the colour is with colour? At the moment looks half done or something....? But a very kool addition to your carvings

I made another patu kind of thing and I decided to play around with some inlay. It's a tiny piece of cedar (I think, at least it smells like cedar).

When it was finished I decided to take it to work to show my buddies there. I was there about 10 minutes when the clasp came undone and it fell to the cement floor and shattered like glass. I managed to find most of the pieces and glued them together. I had to reshape it quite a bit to cover up the missing places. Boy, I'm gonna get an ear full from GMAN.

Sorry for the crappy pics. My camera is like my 14 year old daughter, I can never tell what mood it will be in from one moment to the next.


Thanks for looking!

Oh my! My heart broke when you said it shattered! What a beautiful piece. I really like the inlay concept.

I really like the inlay. It gives the piece some contrast or depth or...
Whatever it is, it's definately a good thing.
I also like the the coloring you did on the previous one.
A real feeling of movement and flow.
Keep 'em comin'!

Finky,

I'll show you a clasp configuration that will never come undone, unless you want it to. Sorry to hear it broke, it was VERY nice. Remember, carpet under the carving area.....

Ouch, and that was a great piece. How did you put the inlay in?
