Trying something different with a hook... this is something Im making for my customers. Will mold, cast and give away at the anniversary party. Still have a lot of little detail finishing, sanding, staining, poly, etc.. but the rough is done.
Thanks for looking!

Oh, the tiki will actually hang by its feet... supposed to be a hook necklace/tiki hook.

I havent carved in a long time, but had some inspiration as of late. Tried working on bone for the first time. Here are the first three in progres:

Something I made from cow bone. made it look like boar's tusk (tusk look on the back side at least). Hibiscus and Hawaiian fern patterns.


Something for a friend that just got inducted into the cult of the eye... hence the eye in the center


And then a honu made from Mammoth tusk... I left the weathered exterior as it kinda made sense:






Thanks for looking!

Great looking pieces! I think the bone likes you. Nice honu, and good call to leave that patina for the shell.

Thanks! I continue to enjoy learning what I can/can't do with bone. My skill level requires that I make things a little bigger, so here is an attempt at a larger pendant. I'ts a Hawaiian plant I really like called the lawai fern with two plumeria. Measures about 2.5 inches high. I tried carving a raised vein in the fern and raised spores. I like how it turned out and will continue to experiment with this. I'm probably most proud of this piece to date. Also an image of another hibiscus with a tea stain.












When I made this hibiscus, I originally liked it. But after looking for a while, I feel that I need to work on a little larger of a scale before going this small again (like the pros here at TC But I'm really enjoying the process of learning how to carve bone. I'm really able to lose myself in the tediousness!

You dont really need any advice you got natural skill! Just pratice bone lots and then some more...the hawaiian theme works for you and your ability to design. I like the flowers

Really great to see your carving skills progress so well, as Rainhawk said you Are a Natural. Love your original designs most of all, so great. The tats are sweet too, you could have my arm any time!

Absolutely amazing! Your detail work is stupendous! I've seen your tat designs which are great by the way but I think you found your true calling as a 3-D artist.

I also am just starting in bone carving & was just roaming in here to find a few tips, inspiration. Keep it up! I loved that tat design with the tiki partial with cracked wood grain detal. Never seen that before.

Beautiful pieces man! They show the tremendous effort you put in. It inspires me to be more full, and create a real piece of art...ahhhh, nevermind.
