Here is a recent project carved for VonTiki...it is a walrus tooth that he has carried in his pocket since he was a child, so there was absolutely no margin of error on this piece...it was a very special one-of-a-kinder and had to be a very special design!!


That's some pretty fine carving, almost like a Maori netsuke...what are the dimensons of the tooth?

It's a small piece, around two inches. Tight space to interpret, but it morphed out well. Thanks, all for the props...always nice to hear...keeps the thinking cap on!

I just got this fab new studio! Found a great place in an all woodshop collective right outside of Athens! Fair rent and lotsa breathing room...(and a mini fridge, too!). Ample storage, plenty of extra bench space for my books and projects...woohoo! Been waiting for something like this.. Oops...busted with the liquid crack in the fridge...have to keep my big, lumbering self awake...and my favorite c.d.!

Nice looking space BK, does that mean we'll see some progress pics of that Fijian club shortly?
I see you have a few of the same books I have too. "Adorning the World" is one of my favourites.

Congrats on the new shop space. Looks nice and clean. Thanx also for getting your old pix back up--since I've joined TC I've evolved (my tastes, not my carving skills) from the typical Ku figure that EVERYbody is familiar with to some of the more obscure sides of 'tiki art' like your weapons. Gonna have to whittle me up an Aktara or 2 someday, thanx for the inspiration. Going to have to pick up some of those books soon also-thanx.

BK, What a GREAT Find for a workspace, I'm really Jealous> Al you need is some wood chips on the floor and I can see those Chisels Smokin' now. Can't wait to see the stuff that comes outta here! Damn, I might have to come visit one day.
Is there still a Pizza Joint up there called "Everybody's Pizza"? They used to make great pies.

I was wondering what happened to your "North Aukland panel" that we saw many weeks ago...and there it
is waiting for more attention. We are all waiting to see what comes out of that workshop.
