Another giant masterpiece. The guys with the hot rods must have loved all the dust!!

It was great getting to hang out with you guys at the Mai Kai. We seem to have a lot in common, other than carving tikis. Keep up the great work and I hope to see you to see you again soon.

Tucson Tiki, thanks for the compliment!

AlohaStation, thanks for your entry. Hope you are felling fine. Do you got my email last week?
Yes you are right the hot rod guys were all wondering about the dust on there cars. First I had a bad conscience .
But they all enjoyed my work on the tiki so much, that it wasn´t a problem. It was a funny time to stay there with these guys and their incredible cars.
Now the Trashers CC has a new mascot.

It is only a relly easy tiki. I used only simple and clear forms, because I had not really much time for the carving.
But I think such a big tiki doesn´t need much deails. Anyway, two dasy ago I started with your wallnut piece.
I works very well and makes a lot of fun. It will need much more time to finish it, but I will definitely post pictures.

Thanks so much for all your time, gifts, and your great hospitality. Please say it also to Will.
We had a great time in Miami and I hope we will come back soon.
Or you will visit us in Germany, feel free and come over. Some hard pieces of oak wood are waiting for you.

Kai, you always seem to have the big logs ready to go!

Another impressive piece, and yes, less is more on these big guys.

They have a huge presence.

We are into such a bitter winter that it has driven me to the warmest and smallest corner of my studio.

Maybe by spring I'll be able to drag out the saw and get to some big logs! You've really got me craving to carve up a big tiki.

Keep up the inspiring work!

Hey guys,
thanks for your nice entries. I already start with a new carving, but I just have no pics of it, yet.
It will be a little tiki figure out of walnut wood, which is a gift from AlohaStation.
He gave me the piece of wood, when we met us at the Mai-Kai two weeks ago.
Tom, thanks again for that!

Tiki Diablo, I send you a personal message at TC and the same message to Myspace. I hope you will get it.
Your email address don´t work and returns always back. Don´t know what´s the problem???
Please give me a short feedback, if you got the mail.

Lake Surfer, thanks so much! Yes you are right! It really sucks to carve when it is cold outside and the tool
are freezing on you fingers. But it is the season, when I would have the most time to carve. Stupid!
Thats why I am carving a small one at my warm flat at the moment.
Next time, when I will visit the US and meet you again, I will bring you a bottle of hot cuban rum for your studio.
Looking forward to see the first pictures of your next big log project. We could start an competition at TC:
"Who will carve the biggest Tiki"
This morning I talked with a friend and he told me that he got a log with 4 feet diameter. Black cottonwood!

Tiki Duddy, thanks so much! To carve the sand tiki was very funny. It worked very well and it was easy to carve it clean.
The sand was very hard and so, the tiki stand there for 2 or 3 month.

I wish you all a great time and a wonderful Merry Christmas, Kai

Aloha Tiki friends,

this is the poster of my next tiki artshow in my hometown Regensburg/Germany.
The "Grand Opening show" with exotic music and drinks will start at Saturday - 7.00 pm - 3th October 2009.

Kopfkunst
Corner shop
Schwandorfer Straße 24
Lappersdorfer Straße at Regensburg

The show includes many different artworks of the last 5 years, from the first tiki to the last. I will also report about
the unforgettable impressions uring my tiki time and show two new tiki dioramas.

Perhaps one of you gals and guys will be in Germany during this time. So I would be happy to meet you at the opening show.

Kai,

Gruss Gott! It looks like you have been keeping busy and continuing to improve your skills. I hope all is well for you. I will be over sometime in October but probably stuck in Tubingen and Tuttlingen again. Have you tried JapGo in Tubingen yet? They have an incredible rum selection and one of the bartenders bought an old Trader Vic's drink book on e-bay so their cocktails are getting better.

Chuss!

Matt
