This was a trade with Onatiki and Moki.

I was inspired by the artwork Swampfire had created for their home bar and wanted to incorporate my carving into it.

Here is the original logo

Here is my contribution
Made from solid mahogany with a dark walnut stain and 4 coats of satin laquer. Hand buffed for the final look.
He is about 20-22 inches long and 14-16 inches tall

We love the puffer!!! Derek did an amazing job. He really brought Swampfire's design to life.

Here he is in his new home. He is the first thing you see when you come in the door.
