Tip of the glass to Ben, Loki, Surfintiki, Kinny, Robin and Slave2Tiki

Weeeeell - pretty quiet round here this weekend. Guess everyone's at the Hukilau getting thrown in the pool, dancing to great live exotica, sweating rum through their skin, and buying mindblowing artwork.
Me? I'll be sitting in the pool too - enjoying a tropical drink and dreaming of Florida....



Meanwhile, back in the shed, here's a quicker piece that was finished today - Austral Islands drum figure mask:

Even your "quicker piece" look precision made. When you say quicker, how long is quicker?


PS Not all of us are at Hukilau,

Hey Paipo! I'm not at Hukilau either. Just slacking at home.

Love your new piece. Very minimalist. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the Chinese Mystery Clay!

For me, quick is half a day or less - most of my complex pieces take 1 to 2 days. I love the simple stuff too - there are a handful of styles that have the cool modernist look and it's interesting tracing connections between them. I think I've been spending more time reading than carving lately - there are always 2 or 3 stacks of books dotted around the house to tempt me. I've been doing a lot more drawing than in previous years too.

Many thanks for all the happy vibes - it really helps keep me motivated to stay focused on my art. I had some unpleasant BS to deal with this week (which will be dealt with in another thread) and it is has been drawing energy I should be putting into my carving. On top of that I'm crazy busy with non-tiki work, which is good in some ways, but also preventing me from making pieces that I'm bursting to get out. Unfortunately , in these situations the deadlines always win. My backburner is now overloaded with shelved projects - clay, wood, and of course more stone tikis. They will come..eventually!

It ain't all bad, not by a long shot - I've got 2 weeks with my family in Australia to look forward to in September/October (and will be able to see my upcoming show there just before it finishes), and also just had a work accepted for a high profile exhibition that will showcase emerging artists across all mediums. One of my good carving/jewellery buddies also got in, which makes it even better!

I Know I SAW this piece and I thought I had already told you how simply elegant it was but I guess I forgot, Sorry. I thinks you needs to do a Bunch more like this style, you fit it well or it suits you well, however you want to do it, just DO More!

After all the hassles that fell into my lap this week, it was nice to get something finished up and remind me of why I enjoy making tikis so much. I'd love to see the Indo carvers try and copy this!

I'll post more/better pics and info when I get some good light to work with.
Ben...you rock!
