Ben - OK, I'll admit it, I have been holding out a little. Thanks for all the encouragement (from everyone), which directly fuels the urge to create more tikis. I've got one more big deadline to meet and then I can settle into a more relaxed mode of creating.

When I made GROG's piece, I actually started a group of 3 in the same style. Here's the second one finished. I don't know why I didn't make more of these sooner (I LOVE using MOP shell, possibly my favourite material), but there will be plenty more to come. After 3 Marqs I think I need to try a different style for the next one...


I also finished a commission piece based on one of my early jade series:
"Rei Puta"

Nice one Paipo! I think you should revisit that style a lot more often!

Both are beautiful stuff, "Rei Puta" is an amazing smooth, neat, beautifully designed piece.

I'm loving your breastplates!! Even your contemporary pieces are very cool. They may not be so tiki but Paipo + stone= tiki..... to me anyways.

Grog's pendent is excellent. The stone and shell are perfect complements to each other. This is a fantastic piece. Just don't send it to Grog until he cancles his to do list.

Thanks fellas - all of those pieces are on their way to new homes as we speak, so I guess I better get cracking on something new!
I do have an ugly little "cannibal charm" on the bench right now, so I'll see if I can get a few pics up later today....
