I'd love to be a fly on the wall when BK calls his dentist and says, "Can I have you left over molars and any other teeth you have lying around" I can hear the awkward silence on the other end now.

You should see what a gal I used to know who worked at a vet used to do with left over cat testicles...

It's nearly finished after close to 7 months...I don't work on it unless I'm in the right frame of mind; its a special piece to me. I've been pretty backed up on carving work (granted I love it!). It is property of Kingstiedye as soon as it's finished.

A few pics of ongoing progress on the North Auckland style meeting house panel. Also the pile of abalone required to get the inlays....you get about four good, really varrigated center cuts out of each one, averaging about an inch and a half a piece. This panel will take a lot of them.

Hahahahahahaaaaa! In light of the recent choppy seas and a waka or two nearly capsized, the Terrible Tama cannot help but sez:

Great contemporary-traditional piece. This will make one hell of a bar-feature Bullet. I say contemporay because anything made nowdays has to be contemporary doesn't it? But as close as you will ever get to the real Macoy; very nice work!

i can't believe the thought, heart and talent that has gone into this piece. normally pieces like this would take 2 years with quite few carvers. this piece truly shows the talent of the person working it. there is no way a person who doesn't carve or who hasn't used a mallet and chisel to understand what this entails. it's truly not about what your client want's when you're creating a piece like this. it's only about what you want.

that might not even make sense unless you're a carver. i just have to say, you create a piece and it consumes you. you make sure it's right and you make sure you're happy with it.

art is often called a subjective subject. well, the artist himself is his own worst critic. i think BK is probably breaking his arm patting himself on the back with this piece. as well he should.

whiting, shmiting

I don't normally post in carving (but I often look on in awe of the skills on display). But damn. That takes my breath away BK. Is that the same one I saw in the back of your van before last Hukilau? KTD is one lucky dude to get that.
