Although it took me 3 months to respond, thanks for the bump, Mooney!

Here's what little I've been up to. First is a PNG style drum mug I carved from a blank casting Babalu made and encouraged me to do something with.








I made a rough sketch from a photograph in a book, then put the book away and went by only the sketch so that the image I made would be twice removed from the actual piece. It's 9" tall.




This is my current project. A hand built mug in my fav Kona Style.








It's fun to be able to design things this way without having to think about undercuts and stuff for molding purposes. You can go a little crazy and do what you like.
I put him in the classic "wrestler's stance" common in Kona Style. Think I'll call him Lil' Tuff Guy or something like that. He's 10" tall.
Babalu, I'll bring him over to throw in the fire soon!

Thanks for looking!
Happy Holidays! Fa-Ra-Ra-Ra-Raaa, Ra-Ra-Ra-Raa!

Like Ken said... DAAAAAAAAAAANG!

The Kona Style tiki is so cool!

I love the extra "nudge" you gave the head dress and the "wrestler" stance!

Brings so much more life and action to the tiki. The detail is off the hook.

And agreed on the PNG mug... great color combinations and wonderful lines!

Two great pieces... congrats!

Holy Cow Sir B! The little tough guy turned out superb! Really nice brother...I love, love the way his little arms are pushing those "eye tails?" out creating that circle shape there. Lot's of fun movement in this one boss.

Next?
