Wow Paips,

You are too good with that lapidary stuff. I only wish I had half the talent you have. Your creativity in design is immaculate & clean. Keep it up!

Oh, WOW Paipo, More incredible stuff you have created.. Beautiful marriage of Stone and Jade with a bit of Paua thrown in. You seem to be the Only one making those eyes look so alive and piercing. AND, your Shark Aumakua is totally off the scale, with the textures and finish topping of a Museum quality piece which Blowfish is Certainly most Fortunate to possess.

simply amazing.......nice to see an update. the pekapeka is my favorite......just curious, how much time do you average on each piece to achieve just perfect detail?



Some of the smallest/ simplest ones are probably a day (ie 8+ hrs at the bench) or so...then add day/s as they get bigger and more complex, adding inlays, surface carving etc. It is very hard to measure as I often do small sessions on a piece many months or weeks apart.

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.



Most are just drawn (and redrawn!) straight on to the stone from my head. I will have a style and feel in mind which I tweak to work within the shape and size of the stone. To help with the design process (which is often all in my head) I'll have a dig through my library for examples to nail down the distinct elements of that particular tiki. Lately I've been drawing more and more on paper to help work out some of the problems before I encounter them with the tools and also to get the "ideal" versions of what I'm striving for.

Questions answered - on to some new stuff!

Apologies for the dullness of many of the pix, we seem to only get cloudy days when I have photos to take!

See you again in a couple of months....
