Cy thank you for including Tikiskip lights in your art.
I love the two tone job you did on "Totem" (HA! where did you get that name?)
They had tiki in the Kahiki in Columbus Ohio kinda like this Cy.
These tiki were not Oceanic Arts or Witco but from another place I think.

Got a new idea for you but am having a hard time starting it as am not
feeling very tiki at this time.

Cy is a great guy to work with and hope to help
out when I can.

Thanks Will, you are correct, the contrast in colors is a fun way to make em' pop. Big T I have been planning an 8 ball shrunken head type thing for the bottom panel so stay tuned. I appreciate the constant motivation you send my way H10! TikiSkip the last carving I added your lighting to sold in no time so I'd be a fool not including it whenever possible. Here is "Totem" all finished. I added red to pick up highlights from the float, and though I was convinced I needed a cluster of them, one looked the most balanced. Also melted some glass for the eyes.



What a great wood mahogany is. Started this 4ft. by 10in. panel yesterday.

Thanks for the props Conga, Big T, Aloha, and H10, it always makes it worth the effort! I did a lot on the mahogany panel "Restless Natives" in the last week or so.

Also got some work done on "Brunswick", a poplar plank.

My first attempt with polymer clay was this 8 ball shrunken head. I wanted to carve a wooden croquet ball but it was too big. My pal re-covers pool tables and gave me some scrap for the background and I jig sawed, grinded, and filed the triangle out of poplar from the same piece of wood.

A bit'o progress. This is a piece of Malaysian jelutong which handles a lot like bass wood but a little harder and with a cool yellowish tint.

His name is "Ward" because he is being built to ward off evil spirits.

I added hands and spear handles to this mahogany plank and will add the carved tips next.

CY, I think you honed your skills during a past lifetime...or two. I see many cultures in your work and that proves my theory.

Miss you, Wendy

Thanks Will, they form a tight defense back to back. Always appreciate H10, and Wendy I do not remember what happened last week let alone another lifetime ago but I use every influence I can when carving.

Cy, looking great. Each one of your pieces demonstrates so much thoughtfulness and creativity- inspiring. I really need to come visit the wood carving section more, ha. I definitely agree with what Wendy said...

Your first attempt with clay is phenomenal, too. Enough with showing off!

Brunswick looks awesome, as does Ward. Look forward to seeing more. I promise to come back soon.
