Well I got a little inspired and worked all day and night creating for Tiki Oasis . I havent thought of a proper name for it yet so for now I will call it "Moai Charona ".





Enjoy !!!!!

I just finished the tiki I was working on at Tiki Oasis . I carved it there because I wanted to reproduce the "Garden Tiki" at the Hanalei Hotel . Its one of my favorites . I like it so much that it is also tattooed on my arm . I hope you like it . It will look much better after I put the finish on it . This will be a personal piece for me . Im always carving for everyone else and I never get to keep any .

Great job Ray - you nailed it! Can't wait to see what he looks like with some patina!
That's one of my all-time favourite tikis too - #9 "Niku" was heavily influenced by that piece.

That's your best, man. Looks like the Hanalei Hotel Ku pictured in the Book Of Tiki? Very nice tiki.

Well folks after I was asked to be in the show and saw this poster , Nick Camera , Hassan "Headhunter " Patterson and I did some correspondence .It was then that I was allowed to recreate the poster tiki into 3D tiki form . It is one solid piece of palm carved only with hand tools .It has white pine teeth and wood inlay on the top and bottom to match the design. This is a first for me but I finally painted a tiki . It has a 2 tone purple acrylic colorwash with drybrushed highlights . Then I put on a matte finish to seal it . I hope you like it . Nick and Hassan said they loved it . Check out the similarities.


Now I have to start carving that wahine...

I will definitley be bringing it to sell . The wahine stays here for a while . It could take years of slow hand sanding before I release it .
