It was such an unexpected treat to a) see two HUGE and AMAZING tiki carvings at the show, and then b) meet the incredibly talented and kind Marcus Thorn! Had no idea he was gonna be there, and meeting him and seeing his work was the highlight of the show. Such a nice guy! Such gigantic tiki! Hope they found a good home. I'd love to have the marquesan style one he did in my office - but I'd have to cut several feet off the base before I could fit it in the door

Really enjoyed the show this year - but oddly enough I left empty handed.
