I love the Hei Matua. Especially the way you balance the cord bindings and incorporate them as part of the design. It really gives your pieces a lot of mana.

The tiki is cute, darned cute. That facial expression had me feeling "sunny" as soon as I looked at it. This carving has sunshine in its soul, no doubt about it. The self-contained stance adds a feeling of good-natured serenity as well. A great result, especially for a first try.

Aloha!

Marcus

I haven't been on here in a while. Been a crazy summer for work so I haven't got much carving done at all. I have a nice big log drying for a tiki.

I have some new fishhooks made though. Got my hands on some nice materials.

This one is made from extinct stellar sea cow rib bone. I love the texture and color of the bone.







This hook is made from an artificial material called Corian (used for countertops, etc). It carves really nice although it doesn't quite have the feel of the bone.
