Hi TC'ers fellow!

Long time I'm don't post here... Thank's all for stopping by and write comments and kind words.
Sunny days are back and workshop is full of uncomplete work...



-Thank you Amate, the Sépik will be the first of a serie I think. Lot of fun to carve it!

-Also thank you John CC! The adze is still a bit dangerous ... Like all cutting tools! Always pay attention to the work axis and weight gesture to control the cutting. Thank's again!

-Thank you Sensei carver! The framed trio is inlayed only with beachcombing find: An urchin shell for the Tangaroa, a tiny mussel for the Lono and french abalone ( give by Benella! ) for the maori.

-Thank you too Clarita! Now I'm going to carve more tiki again, the event went very well and there remains no much to back home.



Some pics of recent tiki work:

roughing for the next weeks and a new adze:



The Adze finished:











A carved frame for Jimmy Virani...



...for his Robb Hamel black velvet painting
Almost finished!




Two non-tiki pieces, commissionned work:


A carved owl perched in a double lamp:



And some flowers carved in oak...


...finishing with mother of pearls find on the beach near the
towers of Belem(Lisbon) last summer.




Just for fun, a ring made from a steel nut:





And Lono, best look with his new patina I think, soaking up the sun in the garden:





Thank's for looking!
Have a nice day!

Jérôme.

Wow Jerome, I've been missing out! There's so much great stuff going on in your shop. I love the owl - brilliant idea. I like seeing how you have all the tikis blocked out on your bench. Are you hand cutting those or using a band saw?

That skull-nut ring is sweeeeeeet!! very cool

Great job on the toki/adze too, nice to know the old forms are still being used, Im assuming its a working tool? A no-nonsense tool anyway! If you ever want to make an ornamental model with traditional nephrite/pounamu blade Im happy to help.

Hello Tiki Central! Monthly update from France!



-Thank's for comment Cy! Always appreciate.

-Yes Will, my lil Lono guy love journeys...

-Thank you Hiltiki!

-The adze handle is from ash tree Tom, less harder than oak, beautiful grain and nice smell when you cut it.

-Thank you Grand Poobah!

-Also thank's for stopping by Sensei carver.

-Thank you Conga! The adze was a pleasure to carve, same time a challenge... I think I will start another one soon. But meanwhile there are still many things on the workbench!

-Thank's BigT! The owl is a commisionned work for a friend, his wife love owl... the tiki on the bench were roughed with the bandsaw ... At my work as the boss looks elsewhere...

-Hey Tama! Nice to see here! Thank's for the skull ring . Fun and sweat to made it, I'm not very accustomed to working with files and metal saw. My adze will indeed make lot of chips ... Moreover, it has already begun
We'll talk about this adze ornamental... Thank's again Tama!

-Thank you amate! Happy to inspire you! (You did the same...)
