That new bamboo is perfect for you! Those are some deep, deep cuts. Great looking piece.

Hello Clarita,

I am fairly new at TC and have never seen your thread before. I love your style... very original. I will look forward to seeing more of your work in the future.

Thanks congatiki, means a lot to me, i'll try not to waste my conga credits
Thank you BIG tiki scott!
surfintiki thanks for being around, I'm glad you like
Thanks tikigodz let me know how it went
Lake Surfer I'm not sure who mastered who honestly Thanks!
Glad GROG like
Thanks Benz it's an honor you think so. I'm waiting for the knife you suggested, to get here already! happy happy!
laojia, little lost tiki and TikiMango the secret is that this kind of bamboo has a very thick wall, 3 or 4 times thicker than the Chinese one, so you can go a lot deeper with the cuts, and it's also softer to carve, but the outside is not as great to work with fire, as the other kind, thanks for posting
TikiG it means a lot, gives me strength to keep going, thanks!
harro Hola amigo! good to here from you, stop taking all my tikis on adventures around the world, i have your Tiki Modern hostage... so bring them back!
MadDogMike gracias PerroLoco, me gustan mucho tus mugs, muy buenos
Merci beaucoup benella
amate, I'm not very representative of what TC is about, they just let me hang around because they are nice, honestly thanks for checking my work out

Amazing, simply amazing. I wish we had a better supply of bamboo here in Iowa so I could try my hand at this. Oh well, a better reason to go to warmer regions.

YES! Another awesome one. Quite the niche you're CARVING out for yourself there. Muy Bueno!
How big is that piece anyway? I'd like to see it along with something to compare the size. What are you using for your torching?

Much and much better Clarita! Bravo!

I find this in an old book called "art papou":



They are also drums, may be that this design will be useful for your bamboo work...

Keep the good work!

Thank you very much surfintiki, Tikilizard, Lake Surfer, Queen Kamehameha and laojia, I'm very glad you like him!

surfintiki this one is little, he is 7 inches tall, and more or less 4 of diameter, I promise I'll take some scale reference pic on the next one. and what I'm using for my torching?... you are going to laugh... what could I be using.... guess....
I'm using one of my Tiki candles, yes really...

laojia oh those are very nice! but how do you play them, do they have a patch up there?
