Wow, In Vegas, are you sure it was mine? That's kinda bizarre since I've never shipped anything to Nevada. I'm gonna have to get to the bottom of that.
That's a great fountain. I might just have to make one like that.
Thanks Mike for the link too. I enjoyed reading about Tarpon Springs. It gives it a personal spin. We're gonna have to get out to Fla. and check some of those places out. I swear one of these days we're gonna sell the house and buy an old motorhome and hit the road. There's just too many interesting places we wanna see and experience before we decide where we wanna live next. Is there a good flea market or swap meet in that area?

Seamus,
I assumed they were yours as they were cast concrete masks and tikis. Can't recall if they were exactly the same as in your posts, but you're the only person on the board who seems to do a lot of cast concrete stuff. The person who runs Red Rooster tiki shop posts on TC, so maybe they can clarify where the merchandise came from....
How possible would it be to make a mold of the tiki fountain at the hotel and cast a replica of it? I think it is about for feet tall.

Muggler,
Don't know how I missed your original post on Tahitian Resort. We love that place and have stayed there a couple of times, while messing around in Tarpon Springs for the weekend. I sure hope someone saves those tikis if it ever gets torn down.
Also, there are some good antique shops in the area and a thrift store next to the hotel. (I bought my Mr. Bali Hai mug in Tarpon Springs.) I always thought it would make a cool place for a tiki weekend party that includes a day trip to Weeki-Watchee. (Still haven't been to see the mermaids, but need to do so.)

It is possible to make molds and replicate just about anything these days. There are people who specialize in architectual restoration that are masters of the craft. If I were to make one, I would just do a close approximation of it, sort of like I did with the Outrigger mug. When I buld them by hand (without a mold) I can control the thickness of the "skin" , and keep them amazingly lightweight. When I use a mold, although still hollow, they are quite a bit thicker walled, and quite a bit heavier. For instance, a 3ft tall handbuilt spitting Moai fountain can be about the same weight as a 20" Moai cast from a mold. Both weigh in around 30lbs. Of course weight issues are only really important when it comes to shipping costs (or moving them!).Even still, a 4ft casting could easily weigh 75lbs or more, and thats w/ a hollow center. Once in place, who cares?

Aloha Everyone!!
I just wanted to let you all know that after an extended relocation fiasco I am finally settled again, back to making Tikis, and best of all back on Tiki Central!

My deepest apologies to anyone who tried placing an order with me this summer. Now that I am back to work, I have discovered that I lost my Email contacts when I switched my ISP. Any of you out there who are still interested, please Email me again and remind me.

It's nice to be back.
seamus

Welcome back Seamus! From curiosity - where did you land? Are you still in Oregon?

Howdy Tikitronic!
Yes, We're still in Oregon. It's kinda funny, but after all the road trips, daydreaming, and wearing out our welcome in the spare rooms, backyards, and RV's of most everyone we knew well enough to mooch off of, we found a great deal on this cute litle ranch home right back where we started. Waldport. I don't know if we like this place more than we thought, or that we couldn't find anything else that we liked better. A little of both I guess. You know the old saying that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone, well, it proved true in our case. Being nomadic is great for awhile, but's really good to be settled again.

Thanks friends.

I tried mugs, but they were too heavy, and noone seemed to like drinking out of concrete!
Seriously, it's on my really long to do list.

Welcome back, Seamus ! I'll send you an email, as we're still on for a Monterey and a Walaka tiki.

I finally got around to finshing my version of that way cool fountain at the Royal Tahitian in Tarpon Springs FL. I've never seen it in person and have no idea of the dimensions, but mine is about 3 ft tall.


Here's another spitting fountain I just finished.


This Moai went to a TC member right before Christmas.
