Paipo, This is just plain STUNNING!! It's really good to have you back in the shed. Thought you might have been hauled off by a herd of wondering Gangsta Kangas.

Indeed VERY nice paipo.That argillite has a odd purple tinge to it the stuff iv worked has always been jet black.Must be different variations? Steve was working on a argillite disc the other day and man it woke the whole workshop up man that stuff can sing.

That is incredible. The whole thing is insanely graceful.

How do you even practice to do that? What is the trick?

Thanks for all the comments - looks like I just lost my lengthy reply I had typed out!
So, we'll have to go with the condensed version:
Nearly all work on the tusk was done with the point carver (chuck mounted on the bench grinder) with fine tuning from the handpiece. The tool grade argillite is unforgiving with scratches and it took many repeat sandings to get the flow and surface looking just right.

New stuff.....
Spirit Mask


More soon....including
