Aloha all!

Here are a couple of tiki related things I've done. I'll add more as they come, however few and far between they are. I hope you enjoy my creations!

First off is the Moai bowl I drempt about in a hotel room, then awoke and just had to draw it. The bowl looks more like a hat or an angel food cake pan than a volcano, but dreams are funny sometimes!
Maybe someday I could refine this idea and actually make a bowl from it, that would be cool.


Next is an idea I've had for a long time. To combine tiki patio lights with solar powered garden stakes. Unfortunately, this was an expensive endeavor, and I've only done one so far. When husband returns I'll send him back to Home depot for more supplies(nuts and washers and such) so I can do all the other colours. They ended up costing me around $20 each in supplies.

Tikiwahine, how about a Solar Powered Tiki Garden Light how-to & photo essay? I'm sure more people than just me are interested in the possibilities.

Thanks Sam!

I feel tiny in this vast sea of professional artistry, I can't believe I started my own thread!

Tapa lamps, fish float lamps, wicker lamps, small tiki quilts(wallhangings), drawings & a ceiling installation are other things you can expect to see here in the next few months.

Freddie, I will definitely do that.

It'll have to wait until next month, but when I put the other ones together I'll do a photo journal & how-to.
Chop sticks come into play, in an unexpected, mechanical way.

Nice first "creating" post TiWa. The solar lamp looks sweet. Now you have to keep 'em coming.

Go Wahine!

Great idea for the solar lamps. I just bought a set at Costco - I wonder if they can be converted?

When I saw your post I thought of a brand new technology and I love the opportunity to share.

Konarka’s photovoltaic fibers and durable plastics bring power-generating capabilities to structures including tent, awnings, roofs, windows and window coverings.

Huge potential for investors and inventors/designers.


Every one is an artist. I have a friend who owns a land scaping business. You might not think mowing lawns and digging in gardens is an artform. I drove by one of the run down properties he recently took over. you should see this yard now. It is a masterpiece.

The torch is a neat idea. This site might give you some design options.


Aloha
E

What are you on? From the sound of it you have plenty to offer! From these early pieces, the quality and ingenuity is up there too. Cool going, can't wait to see more

Hey everyone!
Thanks for the kind words & encouragement!
Very much appreciated

That's very interesting AlienTiki. Other forms of energy have always interested me. My husband and I have talked about installing a
heat pump on our property, but have settled with an on-demand tankless hot water system, for now.

After installing electricity to my pond and a sprinkler system, I'm done with digging trenches. Solar power helps me feel better about having the waterfall running 24/7

Yesterday my Dad stopped by my work and we had a conversation about adding an little roof extension to the back of the addition on my house.

I scribbled it down on the back of my time sheet, and decided to scan it before handing it in today. Here it is! Not technical or anything, but since I'm turning my current patio into the enclosed Huki Lounge(it will be attached to the left side of the building in this drawing), I'll need another outdoor spot for the BBQ, patio furniture, etc.



I think it would be super cool to have something like this projecting into the backyard!
(float would of course be illuminated)
