I heard you were coming to Hukilau?? If you get here I'm sure we can find you place to sleep under someone's workbench.

Salut Jérôme,

Bon, comme dab....excellent, ça commence à devenir difficile de laisser un commentaire différent
Moi qui n'aime que très moyennement les tiki Bob, là, je dois dire que tu m'as bluffé, je les verrais plus de la même façon.
Pour les Pa Kahawai, ça fait un moment que je veux en faire et les tiens m'ont rappelé qu'il serait temps, par contre j'ai une petite question technique, qu'as tu utilisé pour l'attache de l'os sur l'ensemble bois-paua, du polyester? (je sais qu'à l'origine ils utilisaient du tendon, mais bon, je le sens pas trop de le coup du tendon)
Encore bravo

Aloha Tiki Central!
Finally a new post from France. This year was very very busy...
Thank you all for reply and nice word, always appreciated! Tom Aloha station, I'll come sleep under a workbench another year. I promise!


In the first days of january, I've been commissioned to working for the french artist
Hervé Di Rosa
I've carved two tiki in walnut made from his drawings for be exposed the Musée du Quai Branly. Big pressure!!!

the first one, tall 3,6 ft:


The both two:


Finished following the instruction of the artist:


And finally in the museum for six weeks last spring:


Then the season continued with the preparation of exhibitions this summer. In Geneva for Tiki Sailor & Hula



I've sent some pieces:

A Pakahawai pendant, a shrunken head (show last post), a bone Hei tiki with paua inlay under a glass bell:


and a larger piece called "the Sacred heart of Tangaroa":

Carved from alder, resin heart carved by Absurd Toys

And the exhibition Off for Tiki Pop:



for this, I've few pièce in the spirit of Sven's exhibition

The Witcodama panel:


And a serie of framed masks in different style made in the same plank of wood


A large Moai carved from walnut:



Among other carving from the Tribe:


And a folding Tiki Bar made for the opening:


Many people came to the opening and we were very proud to have the author of Tiki Pop among us:

(picture by Tim Keenan)

Also proud and happy to be represented with Pogany Tiki in the last showcase of Tiki Pop in museum of Quai Branly with so many artists (Shag, Derek Yaniger, Hakai, Benzart, Ken Ruzic...) that I admire and who have inspired me:


Two weeks later, I returned to the museum for a luau evening around Tiki Pop. Program for me: live Tiki Carving while my friend Jimmy Virani was mixing Exotica Music:

Laojia at work


Jimmy Virani posing with a fan:


And few hours later, not finished but well started:




Despite the busy winter and spring, I finished a few other pieces:

A tiny Tangaroa for the birthday of my daughter:

Carved from Birch and waxed

Some Opinel folding knife:

Tangaroa


Koi knife (non tiki commisioned work...)


Tiki Bob


A last for the road, a commissioned PNG inspired for a customer who has changed his mind on the way ... Now on sale at auction:
http://cgi.ebay.fr/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=151402778361&ssPageName=STRK%3AMESELX%3AIT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649




Thanks for looking!
Have a nice day!

Jérôme.

Wow, what a feast for the eyes laojia, incredible art! (You should have told Herve to shove it on his choice of color though)

Thank you for nice word Cy! Much appreciated.

About the colors on these two "tiki" for Hervé Di Rosa, it was he who decided the finishing. At first he wanted very, very dark. Then he chose the color for the small one, very present in all his work,I just traded for leaving natural color of the wood parts ... This walnut was so beautiful!!!

Actually Jerome I am a big fan of Herve's work as well as yours and it is fantastic that he commissioned you to carve these pieces- Quite an honor!

Dude, that's a serious amount of work in one post. I'm going to have to go back and look again. I love the framed masks (and everything else)!
