thank you all for the comments about the Moais. I'm happy to say that a couple of weeks ago one of the gang landed safely somewhere in the US and handled a portion of Mai Kai Barrel of Rum, so I've been told
Here's my piece for the Tiki Art Swap that's taking place here in the forums.


It's a ceramic wall plaque made of red (background) and white (carved bit) clay, adapted from a wooden plaque-shield that belongs to a friend's mom, who was PNG's honorary consul here in Israel. Her apartment is filled with amazing Oceanic art and artifacts. My friend had promised me a play-date with her mom in a couple of weeks - can't wait!

thank you, MDM (it's already there), LLT, Babalu and 4WDTiki.
I haven't taken pics from other angles, as there is nothing to see on the side.
Oh, I wanted to show you this -



(sorry for the pic that really doesn't do it justice). Grandma Malka finally gave up and gave me this wall piece that she carved. In the mid 1990's my grandmother started takig woodcarvind/ sculpting classes at the senior citizens' community center in her neighbourhood. Her tutor, she always tells forbade them using reference images. "Work with your imagination and with the wood", he said. This is one of her first pieces, carved in 1995. Born and raised in Tel Aviv, I don't think she knows what tiki is (she's been to Florida in the late 1970's, but couldn't confirm a visit to the Mai Kai (as opposed to my maternal grandparents who've been to Hawaii and to a Benihana restaurant, evidence is
here). It is neither 'pure' tiki nor African, but I've always loved this slim and smooth piece and for a few years I've been nagging her that I want it. She refuses to part with her work and it took alot of persuasions from my uncle, who noticed my fascination with this piece, but eventually she gave it to me.
Grandma stopped carving a few years ago, due to neurological deficiencies and now lives in an apartment filled with wooden glory - from kitchy bamby pieces (she managed to sneak a reference image once!) to neat abstract-modern creations. This one greets whoever enters our living room - mostly the cats.

Long time no updating and I've got plenty of excuses in hand. Here are the main two:
1. In July my ceramics teacher gave birth to a beautiful baby girl (whom I had the honor to nanny for a couple of months in the winter) and took a maternity leave for a few months.

2. For someone who makes her living off of the internet I'm really lousy when it comes to actually uploading pictures.

I haven't been making many tikis this year, but until I actually take pictures of completed projects, here's a progress shot of Cook's Loot, a series inspired by a sculpture taken by Captain Cook on his expedition to Hawaii It's HUGE and the mold is so heavy that I am discouraged by it. The first bisqued, underglazed, double-glazed duo went in the kiln for the 3rd time on Thursday, but here it is, fresh out of the mold.

nuKKe, good to see your work again. Sounds like life is full! Cook's Loot is a hoot! Hope you sell it for lots of cash so you can buy your own kiln

LOL - looks like I need it, because my teacher's closing down the studio in a couple of months; she's doing the escape to the country thingy and while raku sessions are planned, it cannot be compared to the weekly classes.
