Well folks, sorry if scared you with that picture

Gogo, Bowana, Sam - thank you very much.
Bill - "savage" - I like the sound of that
Wendy - glad you found stuff you liked. "The Great Dime Hoax" was fun but I want to carve a real one now. I have some deer antler, I've been practicing my Dremel skills and buying some tools- I want to try to carve an ivi po'o. You will enjoy ceramic clay (much cheaper than Super Sculpty too), there are lots of people here who can give you advise if you need. I took a beginning ceramics course at the community college and learned lots
Babalu- I'm afraid it's true, TC has corrupted me

I finally finished this little bone Aku Aku. About 3 inches tall with an antler toggle. I love the finish you can get on bone. (Had a heck of a time getting a decent picture though)

Not sure how I missed this a couple of days ago, great piece. I can't see your cord, self-braided? Looking forward to seeing more bone from your creative hands.

MP, thanks - SHAKE THAT FUNK, the world needs your art!!!

Tiki Mango, thank you too. The cord is self braided. I tried a 4 cord braid but couldn't figure it out so I did 3 strands of doubled waxed cord.

For April Fools, I did a
micro bone carving hoax and fooled some of the kind TC folks. I felt bad and thought the only way I could redeem myself was to do a REAL micro bone carving. Let me say that I have the utmost respect for the carvers, that's an artform that will take me a long time to acquire a basic competence

I stole this idea from Buzzy and tried to make a carved hat cord slider. I got a piece if deer antler (because it was round and solid) and tried to carve an ivi po'o.



3/4 inch tall and 1/2 inch in diameter. It didn't turn out so great but I'll keep trying - I think I'm better off sticking with larger projects for now. I didn't really care for the antler as much as bone, it seems more fibrous and doesn't polish up as well. It has an interesting color but I prefer the ivory look of bone.

Kinny, the moko was temporary but the facial hair is permanent - it helps cover my ugly face

I finished my Aloha Jhoe's mug, I went with monochrome like the menu illustration.



Unfortunately, it will never see the light of the Swap - I broke three of the little "petals" off the top. There was also some glaze crawling, probably from my repair attempts.



I broke it after it was bisqued and before it was glazed. I tried wet-on-bisque with paperclay but it didn't stick. I tried to repair it with brickset/refractory cement and that didn't work either. I could use some superglue but the broken pieces are not yet glazed. My next plan it to fire the little glazed pieces on stilt points, reglaze the crawled areas, and try superglue. It won't be good enough to swap but may be good enough to keep.

Good work Mike. It still looks good even with the
problem up top. Masterful work.

Thank you MP

Working on a new "diorama" mug with a small waterfall and pond, still got a long ways to go.



Does anyone recognize it? Probably not, the last time you saw it you were in drunken stupor I can only hope my amateur work doesn't offend the artisan gods who created the original, the last thing I need is a curse!

Perry, it's ironic you would ID that location - I think you and I are the only TC folk in the southwest US that haven't been there!

I was working on this Rietveld inspired mug at the
Lagoon Chop last week, complete with garnished re-usable straw. Seems sometimes it's harder to take a decent picture of your work than it was to make it!

Oooohhhh, nice woodgrain effect on that mug. I really like your Moai bone carving, too. Makes me want to break out my lapidary tools. If it wasn't for the unfortunate bone burning incident of '76! I was boiling a piece of bone to clean it and forgot it was on the stove . . . for an hour or so . . .
UGH. Try getting THAT smell out of your house! Scarred for life!
You're breaking out with all kinds of good stuff Mike!

Just so you don't have to give credit where credit isn't due:

From page 186 of the Book of Tiki by Sven A. Kirsten (Taschen 2003)

Everything you are and ever will be as a tiki artist is due to all the hard work of BigBro. You should go back and change your original post so that it says your work, like Rietveld's, has always been inspired the tiki photo work of BigBro.

Nice one! Looks familar to me. However,I think I put the long faced guy on the left. Don't forget the table and chairs!

Buzzy Out!
