Dave... great to see you back to such cool stuff again. And while the time off for you was filled with hardship, it has made you more passionate about your craft and that really shows. Your work blew doors off in the old TC days... these days... out of this world. A style so refined.... you are channeling ancients.

Now... if we could just get our beloved Gecko back to show us a thing or two....

Keep up the killer work man.

Thanks, Dave. You were there from the old carving post days, too, doing great stuff. Shootz. Here's the easy mask I produced for Marketplace. This one's not typical for me, heavier on the power tools, but simple and nice.

Hey BK, do you have another job, or do you carve full-time?

Good on you mate. You can be proud to have achieved that; I know its not the 'safest' way to earn your crust. Hope all goes well & prosperous!

I saw an interview with a young business entrepreneur a week or two back & this guy put success down to 3 things:

1)-Youve got to be doing something that you find easy & others find difficult... ie; youve got to be naturally good at it.

2)-It must be something you thoroughly enjoy & would be doing anyway - for no money...

3)-You must give back...

He went into some detail regarding the last point, stating that whatever it is you wish to achieve; you must give first..? The practicalities lost me a little...

Anyhow, you seem to have the first two criteria in spades!

Well done Carver! Tama

Thanks, Tam, and thanks Conga...It's feast or famine...and governed a lot by how much you feel like carving this day or that. Motivation is a killer sometimes. I can't do it unless the mana is right...if I force myself my product slips, and I don't like any even regular line Basement Kahuna stuff leaving this shop unless it is on fire. Anything worth doing is worth doing with all you've got creatively, mentally, and physically. Keeping the output original, interesting, new and different and avoiding repetition as much as possible takes a lot of digging around in the noggin as well, but the clients deserve every iota, because they work just as hard to earn their money as I do. I'm thankful and truly blessed that people like what I do. It's been one happy creative accident right after another that made me good at carving. I wouldn't trade the art form for any other.

Beautiful! Im glad you are posting jewellery again; makes me feel more at home & easier to relate to than all of the TC Big Stuff.

Ka pai! Tama
