Since the theme is Pele/Fire/Volcano, I'm thinkin' I'll just lite a piece of wood on fire and draw a face on it...
That'll work, right?

Yes please! Or maybe I should have a chop so you can bring those, or some other strange concoction.

Thanks for starting this, I'm getting inspired, which hasn't happened much lately.

Wendy - I can't wait to see what you cook up
Anthony - those are some cool flames, I don't think we've ever had a Art Swap motorcycle helmet!
Tiki Lee - sound great, but it HAS to arrive to the recipient ON FIRE!
Meiko - happy to see you, glad we could stir some inspiration for you. I think it is about time for another Chop

***********************************************************

I must confess that there is a reason why I chose the Pele theme for the Art Swap, the Volcano Goddess holds a special place in my heart. Years ago, while hiking near Na'alehu on the southern slopes Mauna Loa, I ran across an old run-down hut in a clearing. I could see smoke from the cook fire so I shouted "Aloha" and out came a very ancient looking man. We talked for a while, he told me he had been a kahuna at the ‘Iolani Palace before the invasion of the haoles. That he had moved to this remote area to find some peace. Then he lowered his voice and looked around - "There's something I want to show you" he said and motioned me into his hut.

Once inside the dark and smoky hut he handed me something round and hard. As my eyes adjusted, I could see that it was a human skull! He whispered "This is the actual skull of the goddess Pele". I examined the object in my hands, it was smooth black snowflake obsidian with traces of lava flowing down the sides. From the fissures and the hollow eye sockets emanated an orange glow and it was warm to the touch. “It won’t be long now until I go to live with the ancestors” the aged one told me “I can sell it to you for $100”

How could I pass up a chance to own the real skull of Pele!? He even had a certificate of authenticity from the Territory of Hawaii Bureau of Antiquities dated 1932. I paid him, packed the skull carefully in my backpack and brought it home where I displayed it proudly.



Last year, I was back in Hawai’i and found the dilapidated grass shack again. There was still smoke coming from the hut so I called out and the wizened old man came forth. He hadn’t changed a bit, still looking not a day younger than 150. I could tell he didn’t remember me as he told me his story and invited me into his hut again. He handed me another skull and said “This is the actual skull of the goddess Pele”. “Wait a minute” I said “When I was here several years ago you sold me the ‘actual skull of the goddess Pele’ for a hundred bucks and it was much larger than this one”. “Yes” he said “I know, this is the skull of Pele when she was just a little girl”.

*******************************************

OK, this isn’t really a Swap project ~ just a little something for inspiration and entertainment. In full disclosure, this isn’t my sculpt; this skull was a quickie formed over a Halloween foam skull and then modified.

Cool story Mike - what you missed was that on the other side of the hut was a big neon sign that read "Big Kahuna's Collectibles".

Here's where I am. Retrieved another reject out of the box and started to finish it up. This one was previously rejected because the wood grain going the wrong way for optimal carving. It was a struggle but I managed to get some nice features on her.

Wow wow wow, this is so much fun. I hope to start on mine tonight. You men are rocking the swap.

What happened? I can't see the posts without scanning back and forth and that's a bummer for trying to read long posts like MDM's. I have a 17 inch screen but I can only see 2/3rds.

Typing here is normal right now. Oh well, Wendy

Wendy, I messed it up! The row of asterisks I used for a border was too long so I fixed it and it displays right now.

Tom, she's lookin' GREAT!

I know where I want to swim next time we are in Las Vegas hang10tiki.

This is so much fun to see the variety for this swap. I just came in from the garage after working on my contribution. It's roughed out.

Start with one Bob mug.

Work on some peaks and valleys for the lava to run down.

My swap partner will need to use a straw or will find out fast this is a dribble mug.

Here I began to build Pele.

I thought about leaving off the boobies but decided I owed them to my fans!

The clay is really sticky right now so I'll round out and fine tune those points later.


Now I'll put these and some other photos on my crafts thread. Cheers, Wendy
