There are so many big fish in this pond, I hope there's room for one more little tadpole.







Many cups of good cheer to all in 2009! - Hodaddy

Thanks for the kind words fellas. All the larger Mini Mod Tangaroas are made from Hawaiian hardwoods including Koa, that I had mailed back to myself from my visit last visit to Kauai. The smaller Mini Mods are from African hardwood pen blanks. The Ebony versions sold quickly as they held bone skulls and were frowning. I oil these with a natural mixture of seed oils to deepen the grain. They all have a hemp tapa print loincloth (grown from seed to fabric on Hawaii) and are strung on a unique woven organic hemp necklace by the lovely PakoloLolita.

Don't know if I ever posted this nice pic of Sue & Dave from Dorset's {b]HotRodTIKI[/b] during one of their Oasis 7 visits to Freaky Boutiki last summer but it and the goofy photo snapped seconds later may be the only pics of tikijunk TIKI # 2 awaiting some sort of varnish. As with my pendants, an anatomically correct Mod Tangaroa, this time with a huge abalone shell offering inlay. It sold a few months ago. This was only my second carving since the OKI OKI and the best wood I've yet to get my hands on.

tikijunk # 3, a 3' Mod Marq. This one's keeping the snails off the mint in my garden as it stares across the lagoon.

I love 'em! How do I get one?
They remind me of the real old-school pendants you see on ebay from time to time - the tropical wood, hemp(?) cords and use of found objects really give them a cool 60s beachcomber/surf vibe. There is always room for more fish in the sea!
PS Respect the WANG! Down with emasculated tikis!

Thanks so much guys for the encouragement with my poles and pendants.

Forgot about this one... Here's a pic of tikijunk #1, (my Oki Oki carving) which now lives in Freaky Boutiki's front window. I remember Bosko telling me over my shoulder that if I carved any more out of the mouth I could use it as a mailbox!




BTW- Ben the tikijunk "BRAND" evolved from many decades of parents, girlfriends and ex-wives asking 'whats your obsession with all this tiki junk?'... one man's trash is another's treasure. Maybe twenty years from now somebody at a garage sale will find an old tiki with the tikijunk logo on the back and be stoked. See, the logo is a San Pan which turned on it's side are my initials.

Anyway, accept no substitutes. LOL!

Absolutely. I remember a story about a mainland Polynesian resturant being forbidden to open until the terrible frightening penises were sliced off any tikis inside!

San Pan, HH, and Tiki Junk --- that is pretty darn clever.

Your carvings are great as well. I have to get out there see your Boutiki.

Yeah that's me Johnny: A real smarty pants! Hey! When you comin' out again brah?
__________

I just got a call from my buddy artist Rob Tobin who's visiting Hawaii. He called while standing in front of Duke's statue in Waikiki so we could see him waving at us online! Far out!

Frieze Installation: These pieces were a fun collaboration with Rob, who freehand jigged and helped mount my designs after our fire. Each relief layer was shaped seperately then lamanated. Details were then sanded, chiseled and painted by hand while vertical and after permanent exterior installation at FREAKY BOUTIKI.
