tikis are made with polyesther resin and exotic wood all arround.When I was younger,I used to build pleasure boats(for Olivier de Kersauzon,for Florence Artaud,for Alain Gautier,for Loïc Peyron...)and thanks to what I learnt,now I can make anything I want with sillicon and resin.
The wedding was on saturday and did not have the time yet to put the pic in my computer...

Great lamps. Congrats and welcome to TC.
Edit : I don't see on the website how to get a lamp ? Do you sell them ? Do you make custom lamps ?

until now,I made some lamps for my friends...Never sold any lamps in another country than France!...Don't know at all the way to sell in another country than mine...
Did you have a look at the links my friend "Rockinbart" gave in his message?That's another kind of lamps I use to make (as I am a rockabilly fan!...)
As I am alone to make the lamps,I only make a few of them in a year...Sometimes,I'm able to spend a lot of time in my working-room and some other times there is nothing in my mind and I'm unable to make anything!!!
I will ask the way to do at the post office and will tell how to manage...
Very happy for the congratulations!thanks!

WOW, I'm very impressed.
I was in Brittany (Carnac) in the early july and I was searching for tiki bars but found unfortunately none.

Very beautiful lamps and nice ideas to put the tikis with the different kinds of lamp together.

Benjamin.
