Here's my last couple weeks update:


Starting with the sunsets



we're in the sunsets behind the bay time of year finally!


I developed a new product last week. Introducing my new matchbooks:

I used a couple free stamps I got from Vistaprints, some old blank matchbooks from my 10 for a dollar box, and some little resin tiki heads I cast from a cocojoes pendant to make these

Coolest matchbooks ever!

I love my new matchbooks!

Hey Buzzy, that hurts, , 30 minutes every other day? Love your clay Ku tu!



30 minutes every other day indeed hurts. I think I spend more time on my hair in the morning! I liked the nu KU tuu, so I made a couple more. I'm a regular over at babalu's these days. I've been having a lot of fun over there. Here's my last two weeks of work:

I made a smaller version of this tiki on a lava plaque last year . I liked it a lot and when it was done I wanted to keep it for myself, or give it to Freddie for the contest. However, I was a little cash poor at the time and took it to the Tonga Hut show, where it sold. So, this time, I decided to make it larger, and make three of hem. One for me, one for Freddie, and one to sell. after finishing #1, I started right away on #2 and 3.
I actually used the picture for reference on the second one. The first one I just did from memory and had a couple areas that I was uncertain of. Here's #2 with the corrections made and most of the rest of it done:

#2 finished next to #1

Next was throwing it on the lava slab. Here's the slab for it and #3 getting ready to be worked on next

Meanwhile, #1 got fired. It turned out fine. It's on the right. #2 is finshed in the middle and #3 has the tiki done

#2 and #3, which was finished today

I glazed #1 yesterday, and it's sitting on the kiln shelf

Nice plaque. I don't see the hole to hang it with. Don't forget that. LOL



I hid the hanger hole thingies in a recessed section on the back. I also made three holes in case they get clogged by the glaze

Oh Buzzy, you can always take a break and recooperate in our Buzzy Bedroom for special guests.

Gecko slept here.



I'm sure your little slice of heaven room reminded him of home:

I think he has his in the bedroom too.

And while we're on the subject, Here's a couple of pictures of us at Oasises past:


Fun times indeed!

Hey Wendy, That's smart having those Buzzy's there. Everybody likes guest to stay over but it totally keeps the long term guest from settling in.



My main concern would be that they would be stolen. That'd be a hard loss to deal with...

Don't fret! I've been working on my tan lately in preparation for next year's photo. I'll have plenty of time to add some bulk later next year

Thanks Benz! you had a lot to do with me being where I am right now. The part where I said that got cut out of the final draft, but I did say that and mean it.

Thanks, me too. Especially me too!


Medical update:
I went back to the doctor yesterday, and unfortunately, I have not been cleared to work for another month. I'm actually being referred to another specialist on Thursday, and will recieve some injections in my shoulders and neck. So hopefully, I'll make enough progress after that that I can get back to tearing up some wood very, very soon. Until then, I stretch, rest, and do whetever the medical team tells me to do to get better.

In the meantime, I'll be spending my 30 minutes every other in the center of the universe, hanging out with Babalu and Simon, playing in the mud,



I think I'll make a mug next. There are not enough of those things out there yet. But should I do a Moai, or a Tiki bob tribute?

Life is full of hard choices!
Buzzy Out!

Buzzy-

Hey man! - congrats on the latest Tiki Magazine article. Cool pics and I thought the story was well balanced. The line at the end about turning a neophyte on to carving because they may have bought a pendant "from a guy on the sidewalk" is so f'ckin true! Its all about the ripples - cause and effect - and you sir, have created ripples by the thousands. Trust that your influence has planted many moments of inspiration for many people. Also -
I get a kick from seeing you carve indoors on the carpet; Believe me if I didn't rent my home I'd be doing the same - you have to work comfortably wherever that may be to achieve max results. Rock on!

My thoughts are with you and your healing process, please take the time to heal properly so you may come back to carving with a vengeance...the world requires more of your hand-made musical drums distributed. They are beautiful to hear, beautiful to see and blanket us with joy.

Take care. G

Wake up Mr Bay Park, King of the BUZZ! Back to work, those Doc's are Milking you for all your tiki money and plan on keeping you on the hook a long time.
sharpen up the tools, skin the Logz, there's Tiki's out there Waiting to be carved.

finally, My Tiki Mag came in the mail and the wait was worth it, I Really enjoyed reading your story and it's about time too. I think you've carved enough tiki stuff to have 3 features infact you should have your own Tiki Mag corner.
Now,, Back to Wirk.

I thought the most interesting thing about the article was that we finally discovered Buzzy's real name is "Auslott J. Krempenschmelder".

Jeez, no wonder he calls himself Buzzy.

Hey man, who wrote that slanderous, New York Post-style jazz about you anyways?

Hope you can start chopping away in your living room as soon as possible and until then, may your Christmas dinner be Rogers & Parton-free.

Cheers to you and Zaya, pally~

Andy

ps Rest assured, your name is safe with me...(ahh..the POWER!)
