Kia ora All –

Tama V2.0! At Paipos suggestion Ill kick off this new thread with a bit of flagrant self-promotion; the TC Kiwi boys both picking up placements at NZs recent ‘12th Pounamu/Jade & Hard Stone Exhibition’ held bi-annually at a local gallery here on the Sth Islands’ West Coast. Thanks Ben and Pdrake for your kind messages of support!

Besides the overall ‘Premier Award’ winner, P’po was the undeniable star of the show with one of his ‘Hidden Charms’ series scooping top prize in the Adornment category. The concept and execution of the piece in question being a stroke of pure (evil) genius! Id love to tell you about it but feel its probably better coming from the man hisself.. Go on P, let them in..

I was personally very happy to receive a Merit Award for one of my entries (pekapeka) which earned me a very sexy chunk of British Colombian nephrite and an excuse to sit with the judge of the show at dinner later. This to me was the real highlight, John Edgar being one of a legendary crew of pioneer studio stonecarver/sculptors in NZ. A truly inspiring guy to listen to, his speech for the evening revolving around the theme of communicating through the medium of stone, or as he put it, ‘teaching stones to talk’.
As well as picking up prizes, the pendants made by Paipo and myself were purchased by the host gallery to add to their permanent pounamu/jade collection; another huge honour.

*the posters will be for sale on eBay once show is finished.. Actually Im not even sure how many were printed, possibly just the one(?) Rest assured I will do my best to grab as many as I can. In the meantime heres a snippet from the catalogue:



Proof that Paipo and I are on the same page. Well, almost..


The original beachcomber..





Most of the opening night attendees have strong ties to the ‘jade community’, perhaps half of them carvers themselves. A few rising stars amongst the crowd.


“Id like to thank the Academy, my parents, etc..”





The other piece I had entered was based on the Maori ‘re niho Paraoa’ or pierced whaletooth, the difference being that my ‘tooth’ was plucked from the jaws of a taniwha/sea monster..!

And to pad out pg1, heres a few from recent months:

Little trad hei-Tiki:

Little Moko'ed warrior:










-

Tangaroa - *sorry Grog, this had been promised to a woman of Cook Islnd decent, a gift for her father. I guess this makes us even, you b*stard..

Latest side-hanger:

V2.0 off to a flying start. Keep the pressure on me..

Take care All!

Congratulations Tama! Those two pieces are certainly worthy of awards.

Just one bit of feedback ... don't ever make me scroll so far down your post to get to the "good stuff"! I was starting to think you'd forgotten all about my needs!

Well done, sir!

Well Well, Great Happy news all around. Definitely a Great way to start up a new thread. Big Congratulations again for being recognized as good as we Knew you were from the start, it's about time those guys opened their eyes to the facts!
That Legendary "Box of 80" has held these winners for quite awhile and we have seen progress on them both at one time or another and I guess it's good that you still had them in the box, available for last minute finishing and dazzling entry into the show. I know how it is when you need something really fast, you look through your box for the best stuff that needs the least work that you can finish up and get out the door. Good thing the box was there.
You Know we have missed your posts a lot and now that you have a new thread started we will expect a Regular entry every day! Anyway just know that we are Proud of your new accomplishments and honors.
HappyHappyHappy
