Aloha!

Thank you Eric!

Also thank you for reply and support Clarita, this fruit is called
"MIRABELLE" in french, a delicious fruit from our region.



Now the Tang had time to dry, here it gloss:




And the koropepe with his obsidian eye is finished, polished and lashed:





Have a nice day!

Jerome, your tangy guy is Totally off the wall, you must have used 5 miles of sand paper on him. Excellent finish! The koropepe is Top shelf too. What's next?

Bone, resin, wood, perfect bindings and hand-made tools and a box to carry everything in. Truly a universal artist! Love that lil hei-tiki you posted...super clean and crisp.

Sweet! Really nice carve. Like the simplicity of the design while at the same time the features really stand out.

It seems it's a specie that mostly grows in France, here we have ones yellow but bigger or more like violet, the general name of this fruit here is ciruela, mmmm! and what a pretty tree too

Week update!


Thank you CC! We often get the impression that the finish is ungrateful to achieve but it always bears fruit. Thank's again.

Thank's for kind word Rhys. I just try to find another sensation that wood ... and by dint of thinking I might try to scratch the rock one of these days. Have a nice austral summer, and don't forget to clean the workshop, you have a visit from old europe soon...

Thank you Tikilizard!

Yeah Surfin'! Not! Not a museum piece! He is all new! Not even dust over... Thank you Tang master!

Also thank you Tikigodz!

"Wise and content" ... Like a man in his tikibog ... Thank you Craig!

Also thank you Clarita! It is true that this makes these beautiful plum trees ... I promised my wife to wait long before carving!

Thank you Amate! It was carved from a birch branch. It has a nice crack from behind but I think it goes well anyway.




Random pics of the last works finished:


First, a pink ivory hei tiki:


Some quick carving, the different mood of tiki bob:


My first twisted bone finally monted with a tiny hei matau:

in fact it merely serves to light the lamp...



And finally two twisted bone pendant. The first I made, on the left, have a mistake on the design and a little crack behind, the second is a little better:





If the sun goes down here, he must also rise up somewhere...
Have a nice day!

J.

laojia, Love the lamp cord decorations, the twisted bone is Excellent and the cord is Amazing, you've learned well! Love the new twists as well as the Pink Hei-Tiki too.
What super surprises do you have in store next?
