Jim, good to see some work by you again!

Really missed your creations here... it has been a while.

But it is also great to see that you haven't lost that great style and wonderful finish to your work!

Keep up the great work... and above all have a blast doing it!

Great work Polynesiac, really love your Tang, Marq and Baby Tang.
Really nice use of color, especially on that cute little Baby. It has
been a long time, good to see you back.

Mahalo all my friends for stopping by my little corner!

Kirbs - you da man in my book. You got me inspired to start carvin' and postin' again. Thanks, bro!

Jeff - I'm lookin' forward to it! thanks!

Lake - Thank you! your work that you've been producing is OUTSTANDING! Thanks for stopping by! I've been doing some soul searching lately and it's very important for me to get back to doing the things I love...and have a blast doing!!!!!

Conga - I like how color can compliment a piece. There is a fine line though, as we all know! I take my color inspiration from the master (mr. Leroy S) and the amazing creations by the peoples of PNG. Thanks!

Kate, JT and Laojia - yes....you're all right in a sense, but the first is to the amazing carves of Mr. Richard Ellis. I decided to carve him first because I have many fond memories around his carvings at sams/kona/DTBC. Thanks for the guesses!!!! (I thought I had cropped is name out....I guess I uploaded the wrong the picture!) thanks for peeking in!

Heath - Mahalo!!!

Thanks for peekin' in!

Surf and LLT - thank you both very much for your posts. Sorry about the delayed response...

The Aquarium where I work has been asking me to donate a carving for their annual fundraiser "the Grand Grunion Gala" for a few years. I was never able to pull something together in a timely enough fashion, until this year. INstead of carving a south pacific piece, I decided to really challenge myself and head North for inspiration. Because it's an auction piece for the aquarium, the overt ocean theme made sense, so I looked to the Haida and their superb renditions of the orca.
I found a really nice carving from black slate to model my carving from.

I know it's not tiki, but I thought I'd share it anyway. It's obvious that all pacific art is related in some fashion. Even the carvers in the North Pacific know that. Here are some pictures. I hope you enjoy them:

the carving all finished waiting for stain and paint:


All freshly painted, but it still needs to look "old"


Detail closeup:




Finished carving, all weathered and aged with a coconut fiber rope boarder:


The back of the carving with a little info about the carving and the subject matter:



Thanks for looking!
