Thank you all Benno, seek and surfin' and sorry for no update... As soon as I have some time I post pictures of the last pieces on the workbench!

Just one shot with my first Hei Tiki carved in Wengé more than one year ago and the last in pink ivory.




Have a nice day!

J.

Well Well Well Look at what a Year has done to your skill set:

Jerome we have been watching you grow as a carver and here is proof it has not been in vain. While the older one is excellent the new one is More perfect, cleaner, fuller and overall much tighter in the detail. can't wait to se what the Next year brings so Hurry it up Will'Ya?

Hey sensei carver! Sure there's been progress in my work, how could it be otherwise when I follow all the talented carvers around here... I am conscious of having much to do and understand in this art of discipline. Thank's for support one more time BenZ.

Bennno! Ha! Insider Trading! Best pics to follow below...

Like candy, but a little hard on the tooth... Thank you Seeksurf!



Here are the new stuff...

Hybrid Hei matau/tiki

Carved in grenadill

Other picture with the shadow...


The last in pink ivory with the lashing...


A whale tail pendant, carved in mopane...


And finally some details pics and close up for the walnut moai pendant:


back


It's the gifts for wedding anniversary of Kon-Hemsby for his wife, therefore I've carved a tiny heart between his hands...


Finally in the gift box with cord braided and toggles

HAPPY WEDDING ANNIVERSARY SIMON & NINA!


Have a nice day!

Jérôme.

Love the New stuff Grasshopper,and I'm Really Happy to see you carving SO Many pieces, Your "Hybrid Hei matau/tiki" certainly looks like he/they are having fun talking laughing at something,

at Least he/they will never be lonely.


Absolutely LOVE the Moai with a heart,,,,Jerome, you must be the sweetest guy around and I'll bet all the girls fought over you. Love your eye for detail, what better Wedding git than to offer ones heart.

Now I just can't Wait to see whats next!?

Benz is right! We are waiting for the rest! What a wonderful creativity you have! It's a pleasure to look at your creatures coming to the world ! So go ahead, please...
I love the way you use wood instead of bone or stone for many figures

For the arrival of spring, one non-tiki piece that I am giving this afternoon to a lover for his bride.

Also an headache and two long evening for the inlay



Sanding and polishing



With the gift box, ash tree with black stain
