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





A couple of months! Only four wonderful pieces and we must wait a couple of months... You're killing me!

Otherwise the koruru is my WOW favorite!!! I like so much the work on the inlays eye, impressive! Also the Unaunahi, really style exercice pattern , a beauty!

Waiting September...

I am way outta my league when I see your stuff Paips. You are just too much to handle. Masterpieces no matter which one you look at.

Bump! Update coming real soon for GROG (and everyone else) - and some overdue replies too. For now, it's been a really shitty day for the south of NZ and I need some sleep...goddamn earthquakes.

Aw SHUCKS, Paips! When I checked the thread & seen your name signed, I assumed you'd have some eye candy for us to see. I immediately clicked only to find your BUMP. That's okay though, at least we still know that you are still breathing ! Although the anticipation is nearly killing me!

First things first - big thanks to TikiG, GROG, seeks, meheadhunter, surfin, Kinny, Ben, KAHAKA, Laojia, Dave LS, Clarita, Tama and coconuttzo. Glad you all liked the new stuff, it's not as frequent as it used to be but I do try to go for quality over quantity these days.

----------------

Well onto recent events...many of you may have heard we had a HUGE quake here over the weekend...it was on the other side of the island to where Tama & I are living, but still felt strongly here and we were all woken at 4:30am Saturday morning. The timing was a godsend really as despite the massive destruction in Christchurch city, as far as anyone knows there were no fatalities. With all of the huge rubble piles on the city's major commercial street this would definitely have claimed lives if it had occurred during business hours. Nearly all of my family live "over the hill" in Chch but apart from lots of broken housewares and a huge scare everything is OK.
Others weren't so lucky yesterday...NZ's worst plane crash in several years claimed 9 lives way down south on our side of the island (glacier country) and we and some of our friends have connections to some of the victims involved through school and the arts scene.
So, all in all, a really shitty day for many people in the South Island. Makes you grateful for being alive, warm and safe with family when something like this happens.

-----------------

Back at home, work continues on in the Paipo studio regardless of crazy spring weather (rain, hail, snow) and recent tragic events.
Two new pieces for your viewing pleasure, with one more not quite finished that will be posted in another day or two (promise!)


The latest incarnation of one of my signature designs: The Navigator











Lots of hours in this one...I'd forgotten how much hand finishing is involved in a pendant this big. Having a lovely assistant helps:



Next up, another oldie from the box that was drawn up many years ago but underwent major revision/redrawing during carving. Less trad and more contemporary...
Rua Tangaroa











----------

That's all for now....see you in November!*









*just kidding...new (and very cool) piece coming in another few days!

Hey Paipo! Happy have (some good) news from NZ! I believe that humans have made the earth crazy ... increasingly it is playing with us...


Your new pieces also make me mad!!! I see the lot of work on "the navigator" even with your little assistant.
The "rua tangaroa" is wonderful, really a good piece, a fine balance between primitive and modern.

Waiting few days... Not more!

J.
