I found this website while searching for concrete sculpture.

Here is his tiki sculpture:


This is the only posting of tiki but WOW! I've e-mailed him to see where it is located.

Yes, of course I've heard of the infamous Seamus! I've admired his work for some time now.

I have no money & I've decided to try one of my own and was out there looking for some pointers. I really can't find anything that helpful. I'm just making it for my own backyard. I SWEAR! Everyone seems so secretive of their concrete fabrication secrets.

If anyone would like to throw me a bone, please PM me. I promise not to spread the concrete family secrets.

yeah me too. I won't tell a soul.

Actually cement is fun but its some hard work to make one off creations from scratch. I know most people in Creating do carving which is great and something that I haven't done yet. Yet. But I think it has too be harder to make a large hollow concrete tiki. With wood, the tiki is inside waiting to be brought out. The way that I have tried using cement' it takes alot of early planning because there is nothing there is start with. I was thinking up one today. I'm probably going about it too in the most difficult way. (In fact I can't help doing all of the unseen work top notch. I doesn't even matter but I can't help it. Hopefully I will get over that.) Well I guess starting with cement which I think is probably the more difficult task first can only make everything else alittle easier. Just my opinion. When I see a sidewalk now I think tiki (and I live in the city) and I bet the carves see tiki in the trees and fallen logs.
