Thank's again Chris Y!
Also thank you all: Hiltiki, Big T, Basement Kahuna and nicework! Much appreciated!!!
Wow! i just realize: almost one year without a post on TC... This year was quite busy and complicated: a new job where I had to learn everything, new responsibilities within my union, other projects that I would like to carry out, and some work in the house. And so a little less time to artwork ... But I still did some carving:
Here's an inspired carving from the "heretical carver" by Shag:
Now in collection of Mr Sven A. Kirsten. Thank you to him!
deer antler TikiBob with ebony eyes:
Koru and Matau from white Corian:
And two fez brooch in Pink ivory with corian inlays for my friend of the Sons of the Desert
A large Kane head on a metal stand:
Carved from willow
A funny piece: Finky Bob:
carved from birch, pine and ebony eyes, corian tooth. Hand painted and patined
A scariest (and wearable) voodoo mask
Carved from plane tree
A Modern-Moai carved out walnut:
And a dog...(It was for a gift, nice challenge and funny to do)
from the same hunk of walnut of the Mod Moai
I've also take the time to finish this large Marquesan started last year during Tiki Pop in musée du Quai Branly:
And carve a big and heavy Tangaroa from ash tree:
Our collective Tiki Tribe has also evolved during this year, we are now a legal association and Oncle Red made us a very nice logo:
A guest again at Cry Baby carshow (5 th edition)I've build a tiki hut for the occasion:
...and we had the honor of awarding a prize for the "best aloha style car":
Walnut Tiki as shifter on Hot Wheels 57' chevy pick up. Old oak base
This winner of this award is the owner of a nice 3100 chevy with home made bamboo interiors. (Sorry, I don't find any pictures... Damn! I must store that mess)
Another funny experience this past year:
Hand carved smoking pipe:
Here's my first in marquesan style:
Carved out rough pipe in high quality briar burl from a master pipe maker of Saint Claude
The second, figured a Moai, was commisionned:
Next was in maori style with mother of pearl inlays...
...and one figured Kukailimoku:
The last (at this time), also in marquesan style was commissionned by canadian tattoo artist:
Last news, after some evenings of work (I'm not a geek) it's the first days of my new webstore:
There are still some details to settle appearance but it works already well...
Thanks for looking!
Have a nice day!

That's a lot to take in.
I'm worn out.

Less time for artwork?! Wow, your small amount of artwork is nothing short of amazing. Bravo man. Love that voodoo mask. So cool.
