Hi everyone,

I first introduce myself on tiki central at the end of 2010 and then road life kept me away from carving and internet for a while. But recently, being fed up with fixing my van (40years old mercedes), which is also my house, I decided to have a go with some antler and tried my very first 3D-kind tiki carving. I only carved some maori inspired pendants before that.
And even though the result is far from what I can see on this forum, I decided that it was time to go back to carving more frequently and because coming back to tiki central was also part of my choice, I thought I should share some pictures with you.

My very first carving

My first bone pendant

Some others


This one still need is paua eye

And, the very first tiki and THE tools for it



Thank's for watching any comment or advice is more than welcome

Christophe

I would say these are all excellent for someone just starting out. Keep going.

Thanks for your comment Amate, I will try to find some time for the next tiki, should be in birch, but I don't know yet about the size, it will depend on what I can get my hands on.....
About my work I should try to remember that the perfect is the enemy of the good, I always seem to reach a point where one curve does not "flow" enough and I sand to much...well, I guess that's the normal process of learning

Thanks Surfintiki, I would like to try some big stuff, but I live in a van with my other half and our 3 dogs, and between the bones and wood pieces (all over), the surfboards, the spear-fishing gear, the skateboard, the tools....etc, and due to the fact that my other half also do some clothe and leather work....well she might get cranky if I put a Big log in the middle of the van lol but I will find a way

Beautiful work! Sometime when you have the space, the bigger stuff can happen.

Mahalo for your feedback McTiki. Hopefully, if I get lucky I should have some space within the next 2years....for the moment I'll keep with the small, but maybe bigger than the first one

Some more work....
My very first moai, this idea came actually after seeing a moia by hang10tiki and finding a piece of wild cherry that was suppose to be burning wood

and 2 more maori hooks,
one from unknown driftwood

and a bone one which is the basic typical maori hook, style need the lashing on this one


6/6/2012, one update, Wild cherry maori Toki, with first try of "tattooing" some motifs, plus the closing pearl turn out of a wild cherry micro-burl





... back to carving...
