Tama bad, Tama very very bad..

Hey guys, its the usual greeting and apology from me. As you know, my waka hit the doldrums a while back and its been a long slow journey finding the puff to get going again. Partially due to economic blues and partially just Tiki-burnout (be careful; it can happen!). Taking a break at the moment, spent a nice 10 days in the sun at the top of the Sth Island & had a great Christmas with my family up there. My latest project at home is a kick-ass vegetable garden, freshly planted with over 15 different crops. ok 16
Not in any immediate hurry to resume work but feel confident that 2009 will bring fresh perspectives and enthusiasm.
Thanks to all of you who look and comment on my work; it really is appreciated. My time really is stretched with my growing family and household projects on top of carvng & my biggest regret is not being able to give enough time here - I apologize if my posts are few and far between.

enuff. on with the show:

-

A little Warrior with 'tude - I hear the owner of this has been wearing it to church functions in order to provoke comment..









-

Dark parauri stone, the raw material from a prominent NZ family collection:







-

A very local stone; accidentally stumbled apon in a friends garden:







-
Side-hanger:









-
Another local, from the nearby Marsden district:







-

My most recent fave; a Tahitian/Marquesan double Tiki:








Inspiring a new one:



-

A large dark Tiki in local serpentine:











-

In prog:









-

I swear this one was alive..







-

Taiaha-head pendant:







-

In-prog Tangaroa:





-

and another little in-prog Warrior:







-

Stopped by to see an old friend on my Xmas travels (Jester House Cafe, Motueka Hwy - fantastic organic bacon+eggs+hashbrowns+mushrooms+coffee - perfect hangover cure!)



-

Lets hope this pushes it over 100 pages so I can start afresh in 2009..

Hope you All had a great Christmas & wishing you a Happy New Year!!

Amazing stuff again, I can't really decide what my favorite or most desired piece would be.
And as long as you spoil us with so much good stuff in one single post, I don't mind there's a little waiting before a next post appears. And remember it's about having fun at what you do, not about burning out from doing to much. Have a great new year and be nice to the veggies, they will show you their appreciation in the end.
Thanks for showing all the cool stuff.

Allright, that post makes up for your long absense. There is so much to choose from, but I like the Taiaha-head pendant and the one which was alive.

Nice to see you posting, you are are the Jade man around here.

Enjoying your summer?

Love the new stuff - especially the ones that have a bit of your own little twists. I hear ya about the burnout, anything in excess can create burnout. Take it easy with the garden. I'd hate to hear you OD'd on tomatos!

Helloha Tama! I'm glad you've got the herb garden all squared away. Hopefully now you will be able to play a little with us. We miss you man. As always, your most recent wurks are slobberific. I need a little daily wearer like the Docs (she won't let me near hers) so let's talk. I know you are bizzy, but one day soon we will talk. Thanks for posting all those pics for us to gawk at - we've needed them around here lately. Keep bailing your Waka and you'll be fine. I've been taking on a lot of water myself - keep bailing and I'll see you at the shoreline.
