Sunset:



I finished GROG's tiki, but before he could pick it up on Saturday, I sold it to someone else. Now all I have are memories of it, and this set of final pictures:





Don't stare:





Side view like this always freaks me out because from the front looks so full and 3D:

I guess this makes it a relief carving, technically.


I did more carving of material out on the back than in the front. Here you can see how I hollowed it out pretty good.

Light as feather and wall hanging ready. Missed another good one GROG...

Paired next to the mask:

Both carved from the sma esplit log.

I also made a couple paddles from part of the Disney Polynesian Village matchbook logo:

I have one on my list of things to do because demand outstripped supply on this one.

Here are some resin pendants that I cast last week for the INternational Tiki marketplace at Don's on Saturday. I cast them in lighter shades of brown and hen hand painted them for that real wood look

The originals of these were carved from mahogany. The castings really caught the grain well. Hard to tell they're not wood.


Hei Tiki one below was originally done in clay, and I tried to cast it to see what would happen.

I tried to make it look like polished jade. The other one was from mahogany. Both are hand painted for accent.


I never took good pictures of this guy after I finshed it, so I dusted and polished him up a bit and snapped these shots:




Good thing I took those, because he went bye bye on Saturday too. Kinda sad for me, because I was getting used to having him around...

I can always make more. Guess I'll start tomorrow...
Buzzy Out!

GROG when you double post you need to make the background on the second graphic grey instead of dark green. (a transparent gif would work too)

Great stuff! Cash is the artist's ultimate compliment.

I just noticed: It's my seven year Tiki Central anniversary this week!


Thanks to all of you I've met or had contact with through TC, for all the good times and adventures that resulted from my carving work and the postings that I made here.

I hope I can continue to be inspired, as well as inspire others with my work, here on TC.

On with the fun...
Buzzy Out!

Far in the future somebody is going to find Buzzy's tikis and think an entirely unique, thriving and happy carving-based civilization existed somewhere along the shores of Bay Park. They'll pay an enormous amount of future credits to enter a time machine, excitedly dial in the co-ordinates to Bay Park 2013, and arrive to see Buzzy sitting around with his cousin on the couch with a can of Arnold Palmer Tea, up to his ankles in wood chips.

Sunset:


I've had a carved and finished drum waiting for a head to be placed on it for a few months now. Last week, a special ordered slab of cow finally came in and I was able to stretch and mount it to the drum.
Here is the playing surface:


The whole finished piece:


4 tikis like this make the base. These allow the air and sound to come out really well

You can see the hole at the bottom of the bell in this photo.

The bell

The nails that hold down the rope are even done in a repetitive pattern

It;s about sternum height, which makes it real comfortable to play


Ball details

You can still see a couple scars from the tree climbers spikes. I always like to leave those on the pieces I carve. I feel like it's part of the history of the piece and tells a part of it's story

All the tikis got butts...


Boom boom boom!
Buzzy Out!
