pjc5150, many thanks for the compliment!

I never tire of the variety in Oceanic Art, and the stories behind each piece just makes them that much more amazing and mysterious.

Thanks for stopping by!

Good work! you do inspirational stuff and once I get tired of the traditional Hawaiian carves I'll come back here for some ideas ...

Good luck vending at Don's next month. I'm planning on stopping by so will stop and say hello! there should be some nice waves for you on the south side of the pier! But the water is cold this time of year so bring the 8 mm!

Captain Jack,

Thank you sir for the kind words. Much appreciated! I love the traditional Hawaiian also, but it is so easy to get lost in the endless variety of PNG.
Will be good to meet you at Don's, stop by and say hi for sure!
I am planning on bringing the 4/3 with me and hopefully there will be a swell running. I've surfed the pier a few times in my life at all different times of the year.
50 degree water will be so much warmer then the 34 degree water we have here right now.

Big stuff from the last 2 weeks. Carved from 2" thick Poplar.



Ku, PNG Middle Sepik Region Mask and a PNG Female Abelam Figure.

Headed off to the mill for another 10' long by 19" wide slab of Poplar... more big stuff in the coming weeks.

Aloha Chris!

Many thanks for the compliment!
The Ku has a mind numbing amount of little carve gouges in him... all adds up to the crisp lines.

Andy... thanks for the kind compliments!
Out of the harder woods, it is pretty soft. I can carve it with a palm gouge and some pressure.
Leaves a nice clean waxy surface after carving. I like it better then PIne almost.
The guys at the mill hate it though... gets dusty and fuzzy.

Scored a 10 foot by 19" Poplar board today for a good price... more big work to come.

Always great to see your PNG pieces--great carving and wonderful
colors. I can't even express how much I'm impressed with your
expanding "collection" of artifacts. Here's a hearty Wisconsin
toast to you!

I cut up the latest purchase from the sawmill and got a couple of new pieces going this week.

This Maori piece is one of them, and overall it measures 46" H x 19.5" W.

Still carving the body, but here are some detail shots of the face...
