Forgive me for hijacking this thread but I'm going to post many photos from Gale Haner's portfolio/scrapbook. First up the tikis.



Hell yeah you are forgiven, I mean this is right on the money! Spectacular for so much material to have surfaced. There is even one Witco stool in there he must have used for reference.

This again proves to me that if you really put your intention towards something, eventually it will happen! You wanted to find this.

Now Haner's carved wood, swag, resin chunk lamps. The book was loaned to me by the owner of a collectables shop in Tacoma. A bit over a year ago I asked him if these lamps were Witco...



He hadn't heard of Witco or Haner. These lamps are big, about three feet from point to point and he still has six, and had sold some to a lodge in Alaska and to someone in Portland. They came from an apartment building in Tacoma so when he came across the book he grabbed it because of this photo.



a smaller version of the same lamp, mystery solved. now more lamps.











Thats it for the lamps...


aloha for now, tikicoma

Great! Yet another connection between chunky resin lamps and Tiki moderne! Wish there was a photo of the first lamps in situ at their apartment building. I guess he doesn't know what the name of the apartments was?

Bigbro the apartments were the Ivanhoe, you were about 3 blocks from them in what '95, real close to the Tiki (originally Tangaroa) apts.

Finally a few of his commercial signs. The Jamaican, cool mid century apartments with tikis.





I know the caribbean wasn't polynesia but it was exotic in the 1950's-60's.

now a couple of mid-century signs...





about half of this book is commercial signs, though really good stuff and probably his bread and butter, not directly of interest to TC users. There are also a lot of other carvings birds, dogs, cats, other animals, asian and nudes.

nautical...



lastly another photo from the paper and a letter. The book is going back today. thanks for looking.





aloha, tikicoma

Dude! (expression of enthusiasm rarely used by me ) LOVE that typeface on that Jamaican sign!
I lightened up the shadows a little, the sun-dappled contrast made it hard to see. Haner was a talent at signs fer sure



And who was/is Terry Anderson?

Bora Boris the only photo I kept of the asian carvings is this one...



I know there was a seated Buddha and a few other carvings but I don't recall what they were. Funny thing, when I returned the book I looked up by the entrance and saw a Senufo mask, not by Haner but what a coincidence! (By the way I love that coffee table)

aloha, tikicoma

I found these photos of the Tiki masks outside of the Jasmine Tree restaurant that were shot just before the restaurant was demolished in 2006. They look like the could be the work of Haner.

Dusty I don't know but the mask on the bottom does look similar to one at the top of the page doesn't it.

Bora Boris I found another asian carving of his, and a mask, that I picked up a couple months ago.


The hair makes me think she's a geisha.





What his inspiration for the mask was I don't know but this mask is in one over the earlier photos of Haner standing in front of a business selling his carvings (also in that photo is the Caroline tiki carving Sven has and the tiki that Mimi has).

Posting Svens photo of the shrine he made after finally receiving his Haner carvings and lamp, which he staged with his Bosko and Witco's. He takes such good photos!
