TheBigT thanks! what is helping me, is that this kind of bamboo "tacuaron" has a very thick wall so it gives you a lot more to work with than the Chinese bamboo.



oh, neat. I'll have to remember that. But you still have a very clever design and well executed! Are you growing this bamboo or where does it come from?

Thank you very much Benz, love you! hope you feel better soon.

hiltiki thanks! the plant on the background is my favorite pet plant, it's a plumeria that I adopted when it was a dead stick and now it's pretty and big (at list for a plant on a pot..), so I carved it on the tiki as an homage to the non human family I love, like my dog chufi

TheBigT Thanks! I wish I could grow bamboo I live in the middle of the city (it's like living in new york for you to imagine), i don't even have soil.. the plants you see are on pots, I try to make the pics look like if it were a jungle, but is all an optical effect
I buy the bamboo in a market we have here called 'mercado de frutos de Tigre' it's next to a river, it's a place were you can buy fruits and hand made objects, some art, and stuff, there are a few places that sell bamboo there, at some point i've discovered this kind and loved it. I'm not sure if it comes from that river (Rio de la Plata) or they bring it from the north of Argentina were it is a lot more tropical than here.

Haha Thanks ThebigT

Here's #6, This one I've made for my friends Marcela & Tim Harro wedding, that was this past Friday. It was thee most fun wedding I've ever been to, the bride was gorgeous, the groom was very happy. Both their families came from far, his from Australia and hers from Corrientes that is a state here in Argentina, at that state people really know how to have fun, well and you know that Australians are known for their booze resistance, but honestly I think the Correntinos proved they are the kings of parties.The party started at 10pm and went on and on until 6am the next day, a lot of food and a lot of love, people were dancing like crazy all over the place, they both have the coolest families ever! I know they are going to be very happy, they are an incredible couple, both very intelligent, fun and most of all very good people. And they love each other very much.

With all the excitement I forgot to take pictures of the Tiki I've made for them, so I took some cellphone ones at the party...







There it says Marce & Tim
Wishing them the best

Aloha to you all!

CLARITA!!!
More Beautiful Bamboo Art from our Bamboo Queen, You have really given the Bamboo World a whole new life and I'm sure many people are seeing bamboo in a whole new light.
If I get married are you gonna make me a Bamboo Remembrance?? Sounds like a big fun party where you all had too much fun.

Hey seeksurf thanks! I miss your posts, what's going on with you? glad to see you around.

Cheers BIG tiki scott thank you a bunch!

tikigodz thanks! Your table turned out great I like it a lot.

laojia Merci, is always a pleasure to hear from you.

hewey Hi! Welcome back, glad to see you around again too.

Benzart Thank you so much, I wait for your comments like if they were the reason I carve, maybe they are not the only reason but.. Thank you so much.
If you get married (and invite me) I would totally carve something for you, don't tell anybody but, specially if you've carved an awesome Ku for me before that, just because I found the log for you , remember this guy?



fabulous hm? I don't know if my carve is enough to thank him and as wedding gift too, but I did my best...

Thanks GROG I'm always happy when you stop by

This thread is a shining beacon of what good Poly Pop tikis should look like. Not only original in conception and crisp in execution, but also the challenge of the material...using the basic building unit of the tiki bar itself. The latest one is a stunner Clarita! Congrats to Harro too!

I have been listening to one of your compatriots lately (a lot) and wondered if you are familiar with this guy?

I'm sure cumbia is well-known to you, but it is something I have only recently discovered (and now I can't get enough of it!) If you listen to the track "Villadonde" you will even hear a little bit of Aotearoa...there are some very cool Maori vocals in the mix. Argentina meets Polynesia...just like your work!
