I am new to this forum and to tiki.

This place sounds like bunch of Goths fighting over what is Goth and how do we protect our subculture from the evil influences of change.

Oh sure, in any scene/genre/subculture/clique you'll have a large amount of that, and you'll also have new members who get all uppity about the old-timers and the set ways. It's the natural ebb and flow, like the seasons, like the ocean.

This place is no different. With 8K+ members, you are going to run the gambit, huh?

Thing is, if you feel it in your heart, you'll understand how to find your way. The other thing is, the longer you stick around, the better you are at seeing nuances. You just have to put in your time. And you can only put in your time if you are compelled internally.

The above is a very old post, but I wanted to bring it back up and say don't sell us design professionals short. I am a registered and practicing architect and interior designer and the last thing I would do is turn up my nose at authentic tiki decor. Nor would my peers (at least, the ones who are worth a darn). I think you'll find that design professionals have a particular sensitivity towards vintage furniture and decor that you won't find in the general public. Whereas your neighbor might turn up his nose and wonder if you're living with Salvation Army cast-offs, if you invite a designer over they would likely react quite favorably to these furnishings

Hey man, I'm guilty of creating a horrible 1st tiki. Fortunately, I was using it strictly as a learning tool. My first initial drawing had crazy big, "chicklet teeth". That tiki is now hiding in the receses of my patio for now. I'm proud that I learned some basic techniques, but not really proud of the result. My 2nd tiki is pretty much a copy of a Westwood Ashtray. Again, a learning experience to simply learn certain techniques and cuts.

I'm working on some carving posts for my tiki bar right now. Some of the carvings are modifications of some Witco patterns, as well as some of my own inspiration.

I purchased a variety of reference material. It's very helpful to refer to Art/History books, history books, and other historical source material. It really gives you an education and well-rounded look at the history of the tiki and art through the years.

Ahh... whats old is new again. It's been awhile since we discussed "traditional" vs. "Modern" tiki.........er, wait. hmmmm.
The search for the "pure bred" tikiphyle continues as the cloning station awaits.

...and absynthe. Don't forget the absynthe....

(note: I can say this, as I have a small amount of Goth-clout)

With or without the sugar cube? Is absynthe legal these days? The closest I ever had to the real thing was Pernod.
