Wow! That face looks like it was carved from NZ kokopu jade. The expression is both stern and severe at the same time. You balance the expressions in your work so well it is astounding.

Aloha!

Thanks Clarita, I passed your story on to Sherry
and she says she must be doing OK as I'm still here!

Aweulekuula, Thanks fir the kind words,, When things come together like that it usually means the Ancients were playing around again so I don't get the credit!! Darn it! As for the jade I can;t for the life of me remember who the hanks Clarita, Yes Sherry is doing well and I passed her your message doner was, But I know it came from either NZ or SO Cal and both Kokopu jades are beautiful. WHOEVER sent me this stone please speak up???

Meanwhile I finished the carving on this little guy but I'm going to have t wrap the head to old the cord since he is too small do drikk correctly and the wrapping will end up looking like a fez maybe.

Gorgeous! Your work just keeps getting smaller and smaller. Pretty soon I am going to need a magnifying glass just to see what is on the screen. But even as your work gets smaller, you still manage to keep the detail level up.

Thanks Clarita, Love your Smiles I Know you are waering.

Johnny thanks, I appreciate that, Have no fear though as I will not b going any smaller any time soon. It's just that I have these small slivers of different material I hate to toss out. This kokopu is quite rare stuff and it was calling and challenging me.

Thanks Jerome, you Always find posotove things to say no matter what I do.
so far you are the only one who has made claims on this guy so he may be making the trip to France, We'll have to see how the lashing turns out.

Me too, me too... only 32F in the workshop! Fortunately I can do a little chip on my desk.

What's up? Are your carvings now so small that we can't even see them?
