You is so damn hot sister! This latest takes my breath away!

Did you sculpt a lot of this one solid and hollow out? Seperate chamber for the body? The straw hole.... BRAVO!

I have no words - it is too good!
I'm curious about your process as well - I am thinking that your ideas are so good that you shape the clay with the power of your mind alone!

Keep sharing!
Henrik

Edit - wanted to add, you could easily turn these into production pieces - is that in the works?

AWESOME!
You kept the guy on top
and his mouth is where the straw goes in!
shrinking the body captures a cute feeling
you definitely wouldn't get from a real Moai kava-kava!

Even the ribs and the spine!
All These new pieces break on thru
to the other side!

Bai rocks!

You really have a unique style, the detail work is fantastic but they still looks playful and just slightly cartoon-like. Your carving skills are amazing. Are you going to mass produce any of these?

hehe

Last time I was in Paris I wrote "LIZ WAS HERE" in black marker at the top somewhere. Actually I think I defaced the tower about 3 times now.

You should take Duke to the top and leave your mark

(although you are French and live in Paris and most likely look down on such tacky tourist behavior!)

That's hilarious! Duke turned out really great and the feathers are perfect!
