Buzz, Moari Guy is lookin great, but it's reminding me of that one a while back where you went overboard on the tattooing and got burned out before finishing!
Pace yerself, avoid the burnout!

"Cam; I'm down for Mission:"Tiki Island take over" Take some rafts over, chop, and stake up a tiki."

That had crossed my mind -



So today, Cammo set out on the high pacific seas in search of treasures and adventures of unimaginable scope. Luckily, I was able to document his journey from my work area with my telescope and x2.0 camera lens.

Here, we can see Cammo on the shore in the white shirt, just getting ready to shove off:


Having rated the vessel worthy for safe sea passage, Cammo leaves the land, and its securities, behind:


With mother nature and king neptune on his side, Cammo is granted quick passage through the often times challenging channel:


The wide open sea confronts him, as it seems to roll on forever before him, leaving no mark to show his progress or position


Finally, after all the time and the struggles of being out at sea, the cry rings out: "Land Ho!"


Cammo enters the channel


After disappearing on the far side of the lagoon, Cammo emerges on the summit of the atoll:


Cammo on the island, with the roller coaster in the background:

Let's all hope Cammo makes it back safely.

Hey Duddy! I can't wait to get that new guy stood up so I can really see him. I still haven't mananged to do it myself. Maybe Wednesday when I have a couple carving buddies over.
As for the sunsets, it's all trick photography. Here's yesterdays sunset without using photoshop:


Speaking of carving buddies, Babalu had me over yesterday afternoon to do some glazing. here we see Babalu working on his monster bowl:


Here's a little pile of stuff I glazed while I was there:

Firing tomorrow, so i need to go finish another mug and a few pendants tonight. Tick tock...

He's going to be a little bit less ornate than that other one. Different styled guy too. More liney than triangly...

More later...

Buzzy's Island!

On the landward side, there it is right off shore.


The Goonie-babloonie birds who rule the island. I may have to eat one later.


The inner lagoon. The ride over was quick and the water glass smooth. The water in the lagoon is tropical-warm and clean as heck. This island is BIG! That far side of the lagoon is pretty far away, its hard to judge sizes but the whole place is about twice as big as I expected it to be.


The only palm tree on the island (Mexican Fan Palm, look out for Buzzy) and signs of natives.


Beachcomber swag, and a clear shot of how the crescent shape of the island was created a long time ago by some lost civilization. Inuit? Bora Bora tribesmen? We'll probably never know...


Panorama shots of the whole place.




Nice shot of the lagoon, showing the primo swimming conditions.


Shellhunter paradise!


Let's not say goodbye to Buzzy's Island, but rather Aloha, which means goodbye, hello, I love this place, and just about anything else those Hawaiians can think of to get you to come back next year...

Today's sunset:

There were a few sprinkles this evening. Hopefully not enough to get anything real wet.

More carving on the big guy done today:


A picture of the finished face in better light:


I did the ears and shoulders first:


then I did the legs and feet:




After
two evenings at babalu's, I got these glazed and ready for tomorrow's firing:


And now for a quick diversion for my friends in cold climates right now:

I had to set up a ski lodge thingy yesterday for a snow themed party, and it included actual snow. Mind you, it was about 75 or so degrees and sunny there.
Here is where we get local snow: the guy wheels ice out of the truck and dumps it in this big old machine


Then the machine makes a bunch of noise and snow spits out of a hose:

All you need is enough ice to cover the whole yard. It ends up just like a real blizzard.

They made a snow covered mountain to snowboard on too:


Add a 40 x 20 backdrop and it's just like being in Maine! or maybe Colorado?

This was actually a surprise party. the lady it was for went away for a few hours and we all snuck in and set up a big old bash. It was a pretty big affair for a yard party. Imagine coming home from the mall and finding all this snow and a band in the yard. For me, it was just like being stuck in those winter storms back east, except that this one had a keg and a caterer!

That was only the third time I was ever in snow, and boy was it fun!

A tropical lagoon and a snowstorm, wood and clay: Just a normal day at the House of Buzz!
Buzzy Out!

Today's sunset:



I took a break from working on big heavy stuff today because I was tired and I grabbed a piece of basswood and hacked into it to relax

First I drew a little 6" maori guy on a 2"w x 1.5"d basswood block and carved out the outline



It looked a little thick, so I cut the wood down the center, making two 3/4" slices


Since I already had the outline carved, I decided to do a mirror image of the original design on the back and carve both


After a little more progress

I was doing both of them simultaneously, but then I started concentrating on just one

I'll have to do the backs of them after I cut them of the stock piece

I watched some crappy tv while I worked and I got pretty far on the first guy tonight. Here he is now:



And soon, he'll have a twin.

Buzzy Out!

The Maori twins are cool - you gonna leave them back to back? It looks kind of freaky talisman big ju-ju magic that way. One could be looking to the future, the other the past - or one is good, one evil...

Hey Duddy - you near Winterpeg?

Buzz, the maori is coming along nicely!

Classic style going on there... you nailed it.

The "snow party" makes me laugh. Smart move setting it up in the shade... that San Diego sun would do a number on the giant snow cone.

We had 14 inches of "lake effect" snow Tuesday that you could have had.

Cold air moving across the long fetch of Lake Michigan picks up moisture and dumps it in the form of snow on our shore.
At times we were getting 2-4 inches per hour of snow.

Love the Mission Bay "Kon Tiki voyage!"

Never stop having fun!

Yesterday's sunset:

We had a couple drop of rain early on today, but now it's back to being sunny and warm

Yesterday was another get together and carve on a Wednesday here. Most of the regulras showed up
Jabtiki working on his lucky tiki money god:


Pat bustin loose on a new tang


He got it to here by the end of the day:


I worked on the little twins
First one done the night before

New one worked on yesterday:


And finally
Since I had the boys over, I took advantage of their help and got the big guy standing:


The little white dot by his head was the moon.

It looked really cool in person. I guess you had to be there

Here I am next to it for scale

How much does snow cost up there? It seems pretty expensive down here. Maybe you could fill an ice truck full of your free snow and sell it to parties down here. Other than gas and time, you really wouldn't have any overhead.

I haven't thought that through all the way yet. I have a lot of lumber under eack one of them, so I could pretty much put them on anything we can think up. Maybe something unique like a gear shift knob for a hot rod or a keg pull. I'm always partial to fork and spoon sets, so maybe a matching set...

Actually, my first step was to round out the square wood I was using into a rounded log shape, like I'm used to. I think I heard benzart once say something about not getting trapped by or in the shape of the wood, or something like that which actually made sense to me the way he said it.
Wow! I just though of something cool: Tikis that don't look like logs. I'm on it...

Geez! I don't think we even get 14 inches of rain in a whole year. Tuesday was pretty warm here, if I recall. I'm really starting to get my farmer tan going good now. Tis the season.

Part two of the Kon Tiki voyage coming soon! Something about a "tiki lagoon"...

When I stop having fun, I QUIT!
Buzzy Out!
(not that i wsn't having fun)



edit-oh yeah
my clay stuff at babalu's out of the kiln last night
