Marcus, loving the diversity that your tiki art has taken! Thanks for the pics.
You've "carved" a nice little niche for yourself.
I do miss seeing you chop out the big guys though. Soon enough, I'm sure.

Wishing you continued success in the New Year, and Merry Christmas!

First, I can't blame Moon tiki for getting fresh with the Pin-up girl (lucky bastard), it really looks like you had a Great time and you fit right ion with all the other artists there. Awesome colors on the rods too!

Aloha everyone- thanks so much for all the support and kind words - sorry I havent got back to you with any photos I'm heading over to Hawaii this week to restore two ancient Ku tikis - they have a bad case of footrot - they belong to a developer - not sure if they are needed for hotel or shopping mall. I am sure I will have a heap of photos to post on my return - and will have to get stuck into carving again to get on top of my orders - which have been piling up over the last couple of months.

I see you've got some new pics up on your myspace of the current project, and Sven found this somewhere (posted in the "Tiki Torch" thread in General)...

World prominent Australian Idol carver Marcus Thorn fulfills personal dream to carve in Hawaii.

World renowned Australian Idol carver Marcus Thorn is carving in Hawaii after just completing prestigious Mooneyes invitational show in Tokyo, Japan.
Thorn prominent in what is described as “Tiki “ or “ Hot Rod “ circles wanted to explore traditional Polynesian carving style and Hawaii seemed the right place to go for inspiration. “I admire the art of the early carvers’. The piece I am working on is based on old and new references; it is in the Marquesan style.

In preparation for Marcus’ arrival Karen Maguire of Maguire Interiors located a tree slated for removal and had a 12’ section delivered to her Wailupe Circle driveway. Although the neighbors were accustomed to seeing large sculptures come and go her family thought possibly a 12’ log might be too large for her first time carving project.
So did the carver. Although nicknamed the human termite Thorn said “I never ever thought I’d complete a project this large in this amount of time, I just didn’t think it could be done”.

“I am astounded by Marcus ability to think 3 dimensionally; he has executed a beautifully complex and perfectly proportioned piece. The results are beyond my expectations -I just can’t believe it.” Maguire

Marcus second major project while in the Islands is to restore a 6ft pair of 1950’s Hawaiian style idol carvings purchased with other vintage carvings from Maguire Interiors by Nordstrom for their flagship Hawaii location at Ala Moana opening in March.

Karen’s Wailupe neighbors stop by everyday to see the progress, and her family has come around a bit too.



Marcus, you're truly living the dream - hot rod shows in Japan, carving tikis in Hawaii - what's next?
