Just back from Hawaii- Did you see me? No, because I carved like a crazy man. In less than 3 weeks we managed to get a giant leap of a start.

Not nearly enough time left for meeting the locals and visiting Tiki central folks- but plans are to return soon…..
I am happy to announce my work will soon, finally be available in the U.S.!
To accomplish this I have begun a collaboration with Karen Maguire of Maguire Interiors. (Seattle / Honolulu)
Karen is an Interior designer and Hawaiiana and Tiki antiques dealer, and a huge tiki fan!
On arrival she had a 12’ Mango log waiting for me in her driveway – that she now admits may have been an overly ambitious purchase, but great strides were made and I can’t wait to post the shots of our Marquesan “Henry”. Additionally she had a teeny tiny restoration job to do on a big vintage pair you’ll see in the new Nordstrom store @ Ala moana. The restoration was a project and a half and I’ll post those shots as well.
Karen has an extensive art background and lots of clients and contacts in Hawaii so we got off to a great start with our marketing efforts.
A local filmmaker shot an interview of me which is now posted on You-tube. There was also another T.V. appearance on the KGMB morning news.
Additionally there are other interviews and articles in the works and yes, another 8’ log arrived in the driveway.

Inquiries about these projects can be made to Karen directly:
