OOPs... Long time without update... Summer seems to last a little longer, so I spend much time in the workshop ... Lots of things started, very few finished...


Clarita, don't worries for the this little plum tree , lot of dry wood wait chisels and gouges in the workshop. Thank's for the comp'!

Also thank you Tikilizard!

BenZ! If I learn well it's a little bit cause of you! Thank for support sensei carver.

Next tiki out of the workshop are still in the state of work in progress:


The tiny maori panel continue his journey:


A small hunk of buffalo horn, I've finally decided to begin for a new pendant:

hell this is hard material...

A marquisian tiki:


And some rough draft that wait may be next spring:



Thank's for looking!

Have a nice day!

wonderful projects Jerome. You are off to a great start on the PNG figure,
and EVERYTHING else looks great too. Some of the objects in the back look like
they might be finished, more pics please. There's a dark sideways "fishermans god"
sort of thing that looks fun.

Hi everybody! A lil' update:


Wplugger, thank's for the comment. I've always two or three project on the same time, large or small. That way I pass from one to another when the inspiration or technical problem stopped me. Some things need to mature to continue... There are also, I borrowed a chainsaw to my work, I take a morning to make several rough form, and I will take several weeks (month!) to finish everything that there is.

Hey ! BenZ! Proud to make my mentor proud! Thank you for support '" class A sensei"!

Thank you too Conga, your eyes are everywhere, this fisherman god is one of a series of three that is not finished yet.

Lot of work on this tiny maori panel, one day I would see the end... Glad you like! Thank you Dave!

Salut Eric! Ben avec la tronçonneuse pour l'entre jambes... C'est un peu dangereux mais bon... Merci en tout cas!

Yubaba, thank you for the comp'! It's my first attempt in bone carving, I'm a beginner in this art. Next event in the program may be in Metz before Christmas or so in Paris in spring... Stay tuned!


Some pics:

Two grenadill pendant almost forgotten in the corner of the desk, finally lashing:

Maori warrior mask


Tiny Hei matau



Almost finished (yesterday evening at 9 p.m):


carved in poplar

making fun chips on the pattern of the basis


And what I have to finish quickly:

it lacks a door at home...

After I will attack the cargo that I am fetching yesterday


Thank's to Vincent & Aline



Thank's for looking!
Have a nice day!

Jérôme.
