love the moais and the idea of using them as door pulls
doing double duty is always good

Sheeeeeeit, Kirby... that's nasty!

Hope you heal up quick, though I had a nick 1/8 that size last month and it took forever to heal.

If I were you, I woulda headed in for a couple stitches at the walk in... they've done the trick for me the last coupla times.


Butter carves on these last guys... super nice finish on them and the kneeling Marquesan is killer!

Save the booze for after the sharp tools get put away!

SHEITE!!!!! i'm still trying to recoup from my incident (3 stitches) just before xmas. i still can't bend my finger all the way and unfortunately i can't play the guitar. can't bend enough to make a c chord and to tender to make bar chords. lot of scar tissue to break up. hope yop have better luck than i've had. really like what you did before "the INCIDENT". and yeah, i was drinking and carving too.

Nice carves Kirby, I really like your stylish moai. Too bad about
the cut but I'm sure we've all done it. I sliced the tip of my
index finger with a hook knife two years ago, the sucker still gets
numb when its cold.
Keep up the good work!

be careful Kirbs!
would be a shame to have you just blossoming
and then lose a finger...
If you drink and carve-wear protective gear!
this ain't the old West!

Moais and marq are both splendid
that got that playful Kirby touch!

The new stuff is excellent. I really like the posture and expression of the Moai!! How tall is he? Sucks about the cut - but that all part of the fun, when you play with knives. A little superglue and a few bandaids - you'll be good as new!

A couple of the nicest new pieces I've seen in here for a long time Kirby, you really put your own twist on all the stuff you make and it always has the classic Poly Pop vibe nailed down tight. I LOVE that lil Marq, how can I get one? (or a Kanoo?)

here are a few tiki pendants In been working on.. Some will be avalable at the kona art show...
i have been messing around with a lil paint with these guys..
this one was inspired by a tiki I saw at disneyland.

a lil more traditional

a lil more stylized I never get tired of the skullz


this guy is all dressed up to go to a fun tiki party. im not sure if someone has already done one like this before,but i thought it was a fun idea..
