Spike, thanks for the kind compliment, and thanks for stopping by my thread!

Its been a good year for surf here. Warmer waters and more favorable winds for waves. Bit of a lull lately, and the water temps have taken their yearly dive... Down to 40 degrees now and getting colder. I'll be out of the water for a while anyhow taking care of my new son.

A little bit of downtime as I regroup for this year's events and try to keep up with my 2 month old son. Thought I'd post up an update since its been a while.

A few highlights from 2012, which was a very busy year for this tiki carver...

I was honored to be a part of last year's "Modernism Week" in Palm Springs at M Modern Gallery.



"Twin Tangaroa Trio" 28.5" W x 20.5" H x 1.75" D.



Crossed another item off my wish list last January when I carved this "Middle Sepik Region Orators Stool." 47" H x 12" W. All hand carved and hand painted with shell and natural fiber ornamentation.



I was honored to once again create awards and trophies for the Ohana: Luau at the Lake in Lake George, NY
This was the Best Cocktail trophy, and this year's work was inspired by the Tiki Resort's architecture.



Another honor this year was being a part of the "Call of the Tropics" show in Dayton, Ohio in July.
These are my two pieces... "God of War" 33" h x 13" w x 2" D and "Papuan Gulf Ceremonial Mask" 35" H x 30" W x 3/4" D



I'm proud to be a part of the new "Hale Pele" in Portland, OR. The "Cannibal Trio" is a theme throughout the bar, and I was asked to create these big guys to hang on one of the walls. Here are "The Catcher," "The Eater" and "The Digester" all together. Each piece is 36" H x 18" W.



I did a lot of work with large milled Poplar boards last year. Never did much with Poplar in the past, but after using it for over 8 pieces last year it is now one of my favorite woods to carve. The Lono is 58" H x 16" W x 1 1/4" D, and the "Wrath of Ku" piece is 31" H x 16" W x 1 5/8" D.

Entering into my 12th year as a tiki carver in 2013, and I've got big plans again this year.



I am proud to announce my collection for 2013: Modern Primitive. A focus on the Polynesian Pop movement of the mid century, with a continuation of works inspired by the primitive cultures of Papua New Guinea and the South Pacific islands. I hope to kick off the vending season in early Spring at Don the Beachcomber in Huntington Beach!

Many thanks swizzle! I've done smaller versions at 42" tall, and it's been one of my favorites to carve. Had to go supersize with it for once. Still just as complex as the smaller ones.
