Hello,
Here are the flyers for my "Island Series". I design and create glass tiki wall/table sculptures, candle shields, panels, and jewelry.

thanks,
the two connected tikis are 2"x8", those are samples of wall hangings that can be from 1 tiki (4") up to 10 tikis (40"). the necklaces range from .75"x.75" all the way to 1.25"x2.5". the other tikis are about 3x5 to 4"x6". the palm tree/tiki is 8x8. i specialize in custom, i can do them in about any color and any size to around 32x42(the size of my kiln)
-john
p.s. as of 2:45am the monochromatic tiki's went in the kiln. They should be cooled, photographed and ready to post by late tuesday/early wednesday.

Lookin good John. Is the glass hard to work with? I'm just not familiar with the process it takes to create those in glass. Very nice stylized tikis

Great stuff, john!

I have been crafting stained glass panels for quite a few years now. I have watched some crafters work with fused glass, and can really appreciate what you must go thru on such small pieces, and admire your craftmanship and artistry.

I have been trying to come up with some window panel designs for tiki's but haven't completed any as of yet. You are inspiring me to get back at it and keep trying. The crafting of piece seems to be easier than actually creating the design since I am more geometric oriented (Frank Lloyd Wright inspired) than objects and landscapes.

Keep up the great work!!

thank you very much,
i know what you're going through, i started out very geometric-minded, but my cartoon drawing and painting helped me break that mindset. crafting the pieces, especially the small pieces, can get fustrating but i'm doing what i love so it's worth it.
-john

the monochromatic pieces came out awesome, i should hopefully have some pictures up soon.

Seriously, they look good John. Are you going to be doing fused glass Tiki's in a larger scale?
