Hi All,

I've been busy making some metal tikis and tiki sconces. I make them all myself from steel and use a variety of different finishes. Here's a couple to peek at, and to see the rest, please visit my site at
www.tiki-smith.com









Let me know what you think.


Thanks,
the Tiki Smith

These are friggin' awesome.

I especially love the sconces. It's like an updated version of the torchlit tiki sculpture.

Take care,

I.

Amazing, flat out amazing. I hope your work gets the attention it deserves. The lighting effects are incredible... so are the designs.

cooOOOOOooool.
nicely done, good design, as I know steel work is a world of its own. These are strong architectural pieces that would be great in outdoor spaces. They must weigh a ton! lookforward to checking ot your website. Dawn

I've got access to a CNC plasma cutter, planning a metal volcano patio firepit. Hope to have it done by this winter

Metal Volcano, Damn! That sounds awesome. Any chance of you posting some pics after it's done?

Here's a crude plan. If someone builds one before I get a chance, let me know how it works out



Got plans for a similar ceramic mug too.

Just a quick note. I got my first sconce from Tim aka Tiki-smith today. I say first because I'm sure it won't be my last. I wasn't disappointed. I won't have time to get it wired and up until the weekend but expect some pics then.
