Dear Basement Kahuna,
Great carvings you have made and thanks for the comment.
Dear Ben,
Next post Ill take some better shots of the tools, not so "panoramic", and you can be sure about loving to hold them and carving with them!!!!
Dear Gman,
What can I say, Thanks for the photos, and I know what Im not going to carve again after seeing Big Bens Moai. A loooooong way ahead of me!
Thanks for the posts.
Hugs,
Sebas

Dear Friends,
Long time without posting... I know, I have been busy lately but never stoped carving. Here are two photos of some works. Hope you like them.
By the way I am always using my same tools plus a new chisel that I made last month, next time I will post a photo of it.
Any comments, please, are more than welcome!

This is a Modern Maori design ( Not mine of course ) that was order from Spain:



Here is my last baby. This one is living in Portland, Oregon. Two Longfin Mako Sharks:



Sizes: 4.3x3.5x0.5 cm (Sorry about the inches... )

HUGS,
Sebas

Ohhhhhhh. That hits me right in the heart. I did all my grad work on sharks and work with them as a professional now. I have a thing for longfins. That is absolutely stunning. WOW! You made my day today. Thanks for sharing! Have any more pics of that piece? Post 'em?

Great stuff Sebastian, can't decide what piece i like best.
Keep spoiling us with pics of your work. And keep putting up pics of them creepy crawlers, they are as scary as they are beautiful.

Dear Friends,
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR WORDS!
GMAN To be honest with you I only knew about the Mako sharks when my client asked me to carve them and they are GREAT! The worst part of carving them was the muscles on the back... I mean, to make them with proportion and projection as not easy. Unfortunately this is the only front phot that I have, I will post a photo of the back, though is not carved. THANKS!
Tiki Duddy THANK YOU TOO!
Grapa-RuHa, HEY, I will post some more photos this week, but just for you to know, they were gone this year! I have not seen one since last year!!! But I will take another insects photos for you! THANKS!!!!
See you next post,
Hugs,
Sebas

Dear Friends,
As I promised on the last post here I have some new pictures. Not tools yet because I could not take them this weekend... SORRY!
But here I have two of my last orders, HOPE YOU LIKE THEM!
First one a Toki with a Celtic knot, I think that I spent more time drawing it than carving it... The Knot is 1,2 cm.


Second one a Traditional Toki with two Koru. Is very nice to carve fronds but difficult to do two! I think that we can say that they look alike... (:P) LOL!


HOPE YOU LIKE THEM!!!!!!!!!
HUGS,
Sebas

Very nice Sebastian! The rope work tying the pieces is almost as stunning as the carvings themselves. I like the makos too.

Dear Friends,
THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORDS!!!!
So you like the lashings? I really enjoy doing them too. If you want I can make a tutorial on the braids? Hows that, huh? Let me know about it.
Ok, heres my last work so far, I did this to a friend and co-worker that is pregnant.
Hope you like it!



That was a nice carving to do, as usual I did it with my regular hand tools.

Today I took a photo of my tools but I need to make it smaller to fit here. Ill do it on the next days, sorry for the delay.
HUGS,
Sebas
