Well here is my biggest effort with this one, I wish I could keep going, but as you know bamboo is hollow and I don't want to break it...





This was all the "equipment" I used, no hammer or anything else involved, because bamboo is too fragile and it breaks a lot, so I had to cut and slice very slowly into it.
i've learn a lot each minute I've spend with this, and I appreciate very much all that bamboo has to say, how it makes you work like he wants, and not the other way around. It makes you slowdown, to be able to listen and learn the way, otherwise it will break.... Very interesting! A great workout in the approach to carving, I think. Not that carving should be about this (specially tikis carving), but is good to learn it too, at list I've enjoyed it very much.

fineness of the work of fine materials...I respect that. You should learn about japanese craftman who work bamboo, it seems to me that the technique is similar..

Bravo! It looks so precise. Are you going to do more? Or are OTHER woods calling you?!?!

So this is what you've been up to, hm?
The shallowness of the carved areas almost reads like tattooing. Nice clean lines.
Is the red color a type of stain?
Buen trabajo!

laojia Thank you very much, It's amazing want Chinese bamboo carvers can do!

little lost tiki Thanks! I don't think the meaning of what I'm doing around here, or why I do what I do, was coming across very well with what I did so far using wax (people think I like candles and I only choose wax because of what it lets you do on the designing level), that's why I want to carve originals and learn from noble materials like wood. Because the finished piece will show much better what I'm about. And ultimately I'm here to connect with people that get's what I'm trying to do and what kind of person i'm trying to be. So little by little I hope I'll get there

surfintiki I'm going to finish the other one I've started, but as you suspect OTHER woods are calling me, for sure! Bamboo is to limited, you can't get much volume out of it, an less you are Chinese

Bowana Thanks! no the red color is because I took the picture with sun, these are very old drums so the bamboo is very dry and it was like "burned"(I don't know how to say it right), so it has brow areas and more caramel ones and some a little redish, it looks more like the pic with the tools.
I discovered that if you peal off very thin slices, you find different color in the first layers of the outside of the bamboo, so I being playing with that, on the nose, mouth and drum, and then i leave some parts untouched, that look more brilliant. I think it adds a lot to the harmony of the guy...

Lake Surfer Thank you very much! means a lot to me.

seeksurf Thanks ! You think , you think?

big daddy Gracias! it's great to calm down crazy minds like mine own

Back to fighting the second guy, I'll try to do something different with this one... we'll see...

Clarita, Most Excellent Stuff you are doing with such Limited tools even. I Love the precise lines you are getting and I Know it is not easy with cured bamboo. It wouldn't hurt to carve all the way through in places maybe? Also if you can find it, try carving some Green, fresh bamboo, you will see a big happy difference. Your designs are excellent too, Darn Look at you!

Clarita, awesome tikis, love the last bamboo guy, I carved bamboo once and cut my hand, it's really hard to carve right.
So kudos for such a nice one, deep cuts too... amazing!!
