Thanks Benjamin - I spent a crazy amount of time on that little negative space. As far as I know (or at least in this case), that little notch is used to trap the enemy's weapon and destroy it. The two koru (spirals) on either side form a mangopare (hammerhead shark) motif, appropriate seeing as the club is named after a fish...

big daddy, this one is large as my pebbles go, 3 1/2" (87mm) long, 1 1/2" wide and 1/2" thick. The little mask on the side is just over 1" long. Cheers!

Paipo, I'm Really Floored by this one. This has to be the most Beautiful piece you have ever done. Beautiful lines, curves, sweeps and shapes, topped by the beautiful sweet looking Mask. If I had the choice, this would be the club to use to bash in my Skull and end my life.
Happy Happy Happy!

I would echo Benz, this piece is simply stunning, lines, detail, design etc and the overall crispness blows me away. I've been lurking a little while since firing up the micromotor, hope to post one or two pieces soon

My-T-Fine there Paipo! Boy is that a looker. I know a few old farts that would love to hang that 'round their necks. One of them being the Zart-Man. I think that may be the sharpest piece I've seen from you. I dunno, if it isn't the sharpest...it's in the top three....

I can only imagine how hard you stressed over that one

Love it.

Top notch, Rhys!

The Wahaika is a beautiful piece, as are all of yours.

Such smooth and precise lines, and a hint of texture to set off the non carved surfaces.

Beautiful!

Getting any surf in these days in the summer months?

The Great Lakes have been clogged with ice floes this winter due to extremely cold temps... I haven't been on a wave in 3 months now and going seriously out of my mind.

Keep up the good work!

I REALLY Think this Wahaika deserves to be on this page also so I'm bumping it up here too. This guy is just So Sweet sitting on his Club with that secure, smug, Calm, cool, Collected air about him. GMAN is right, This guy could spend his life protecting My neck forever.

Just SO NICE!

I agree with everyone and I can't think of much to say. One of the
coolest ever.

Can't get over that Wahaika....
man!
What i wouldn't give to crack GROG on the head with that!
I would've said Clysdalle,but he's got a baby head
and they're too soft to withstand the
Crack-A! of the Wahaika!

Stunning,Rhys!

Your work inspires me long, I think it refers to many very strong.Eg Wahaika me back to this:



The scale is different, but I feel the spirit is same...
Well done, I continue to follow.

Aw man, now look what I've done! Mega replies to respond to...here goes!

Ben - it's a shame that this one is gone already as it seems maybe it was "the one" for you (and maybe my chance to score a Benzart in return)? Ah well, there will be more clubs ... as long as this one took, I really enjoyed it and I'm keen to tackle some of the other variants. Club shaped stones are easy to find so I'll keep my eyes peeled. Thanks for bumping the pics on to the next page!

flynny: I'm so glad to see you return from the land of the lost - come on dude, post up some new work! That little Rapa Nui fish god is still one of my favourite ever TC small carvings and I bet you're cooking now you've got the micromotor. Don't be shy! Thanks!

B-RAD! Sacrilege? Uh-uh - just a cross-Polynesian ART JAM - shaped in Aotearoa and hand painted in Hawaii! I would do it myself if I knew how!

G - Definitely top 3 (depending on the street) - the little guy on the side is easily the best job I've made of a micro mask so far. The 'Zart's neck is just gonna have to wait for an even better one! Stress? Surprisingly relaxed, but the tough part was knowing how much to do and in the end keeping it clean and simple was the way to go. Thanks my friend!

Lake: Thanks! You summed up my approach and intent pretty much perfectly. Waves galore lately - a mate from the Rock School class of '02 just moved back and has been dragging my sorry older ass out just about every second day! I think he has only missed 3 days since he came back! We have had beautiful warm (except for the water!) weather and an amazing run of good consistent swell in the 2-5 ft range. If you get the chance check out the "Drive Thru New Zealand" surf vid to see some pros (including Occy, Donovan etc) ripping the #!@% out our North breakwall on an INSANE winter's day! Best waves/section on the whole DVD!

Conga, Duddy, Babs...thanks guys!

Kinny, I wouldn't be surprised if Ernie's skull is harder on the mohs scale than a standard beach stone. CRACK-AH!

Anwyay, if I sound excited, that's cause I am - it's the opening of the big Jade & Stone show (first one in 3 years) today and it's gonna go off tonight! Got some new work to share too, but the '02 classmate mentioned above is on his way to pick me up so it'll have to wait! Cheers!
