Dang! That is some great work. I like your style. Those tiki stools look quite comfy with the shaping you did to their tops. First rate stuff all the way. Show us more!!!

Here are some new pics from Germany! I have started a few new projects.
The first one is carved out of a piece of chestnut.







The second Tiki is also a Moai. Its not finished yet! I think that in a few days,
I will be able to post more pictures of that work. Its a spruce wood.









Here I try to create a Tiki in Marquesan style.



The next figures are all balsa Tikis.

















In the next picutes you can see my tiki candle.
It was my first try and I was very surprised about, how great it is to carve in wax.





And this is my latest shrunken head.
He is so dangerous, that he must be behind a glass pane.

Your carvings are getting much better. Love the Moais, you got the look down just right in that last one. The candle looks great too.You should make a mold of it and sell the repro's.

Kai, I just found this. Welcome on TC! I love seeing ALL your stuff. I might have to come back for work in freezing February, see you at Trader Vic's then.

In a true example of good timing, I had just arrived in Munich this August when Kai and Micha's Tiki exhibit ran at the WESC store (TC link?), so we met, and I fell in love with the biggest Moai and bought it. This puppy is so heavy, it will have to stay in Germany, and is currently lodging in Jo's pad in Munich. (pic?)

For being at it so briefly, this boy really has it down.

And here he is recovering from the cold German winter in our well heated Lucky Lounge. Looks like the Banana tree is growing out of his head. There is always a warm place for a lonely tiki at our home.

I miss him! I want him with me at home! Sigh.
...it must be proof of serious Tiki fever to shell out beaucoup Euros for a Tiki you MUST have but can't HAVE.

Kai, I am glad you will be doing another show so soon!
