After reading this site for over a year I thought it was finally timre to
join. I just finished my third year as a vendor at the Hukilau in Fort Lauderdale. What a trip that was. I am a sculpture teacher and I create ceramic Tikis. I am including some pics of my stuff and I would love some feedback.

Do you sculpt your tikis or do you have a mold?

They look fantastic!! Do you have a website?

Cool pieces. Im sure the regulars over in 'Creating/Other Crafts' would appreciate hearing the technical ins-and-outs of how you make them. Have you thought about starting a thread of your work/processes?

Hey Barefoot!
I have been at the last two Hukilaus and remember your work very well. Your work is great! While we are used to all the carved stuff, the pottery gives a different option. The tiki torches are really wonderful! As a pottery student, I had often thought about trying to make those. Seeing your work let me know it is definitely possible. My only concern is the stability of the larger tikis. I would worry about something that size getting chipped or broken. Your designs on them are really great. I love the ones with the curvy tops that look like flames. The smaller tikis with the cords to turn bottles into tiki torches are wonderful. They are a convenient, more portable, and more economical way to get the look of the torch if you have a smaller space and are easier to pack and carry home.

We bought some of the bottle toppers torches and stuck them in dead sailor jerry bottles. Love em'. My only feedback would be to figure out ways we can drink out of you creations.

Feedback? If you have been lurking for 1 year and have been a vendor at Hukilau, you are here to brag about your cool stuff not look for feedback! I'll give it to you anyway, very cool! and where can I get one of your Tiki Torch's?

Welcome to TC, glad you finally jumped in.

I love your stuff. Well, no, I don't love it. I lust for it and want it all!

And, I knew you were in Florida but I didn't realize you this close. We have to get together at the Mai-Kai sometime soon and talk story. There are several of the local o'hana that want to talk story about the hows and tos of your stuff.

Welcome!

I'm a big fan of your work.. I have one of your pendants and just bought 2 headhunter tiki torches at Hukilau. (I had to have them after seeing them in the garden at Jetsetter!)

Keep it up and get the website together!

Barefoot Tiki, Thanks for the PM but it would be a good idea to post your answers here too. Many others that read the forums may have the same questions.
