Many thanks Iokona, LOL Tiki, Perry, Bullet, Clarita, Laojia, C'Al, Henrik, Flynny, Ben, Ernie, Tom, Ben, Ben, Ernie, seeks and Mango! Thanks for hanging in there during the lull. Time for my bi-monthly update again!

In order of creation...

Lil' Ku

Trying for something simpler (not sure if it was in the end?) and modernist with this one, kinda like the graphics on some of the old Hawaiian tourist brochures and menu art. About 1 1/2" wide.


Another version of an old favourite - Wheku





Black Velvet Edition



Pekapeka (struggled to get a decent shot of this one):


Shark Aumakua (NZ Jade)

Paipo, every time I think your work cannot possibly get any better, you prove me wrong.
Sheesh!

I want to add some context to the Mano Aumakua jade piece... I had asked Paipo to make me something like his personal piece, which I had admired for a long time, but with some more Hawaiian traits thrown in. So what you see is actually the combination of both a Mano (shark) and Lono theme... which to me is a perfect blend of them both! An Aumakua is more of a family God or Spirit in the Hawaiian culture. I know it must have taken a lot o ftime and thougth to work out that design, many thanks Paipo!

Sooooooooooo sweet. I want them all!
I would like to know how ya come up with most of the designs. Do you sketch 'em out 1st? Are these straight out of the imagination? Modified somewhat?
Just so many slick designs.

Well, Im glad one of us is managing to break up the drudge of production carving; top shelf matey! Have to comment:

I can imagine your 'brochure/menu' Tiki as a surfboard sticker or t-shirt design..

Awesome wheku - damn man, your cuts and angles are crazy! I imagine myself in 'clean-up' phase of this piece & its like walking amongst great architecture.

Pekapeka with 'taratara a Kae' to die for - in stone! And I need to talk to you about those inlays too.

And a perfect little bite of some super-sweet pounamu to finish, lovely. thanks

-

Jeez mate, its been so long since we caught up I probably wont remember half of whats been going on when we do.. doh!
