Romulesian, Thats beautiful. I always wondered if I was from Romulesia. That explains
my taste for weird clothes.

Thanks Robb, Grog and Clarita.

Robb, I was trying to get to your velvet thread and comment. Your work is
unbelievable. I am trying my hand at velvets. You, Heather watts, Thor and
others here on TC are truly inspirational. I cant wait to see more!

I am starting all kinds of new things right now with a
new energy. Here are some pics of some past work.


The tiki in the middle was near death. I glued all his bark
back, painted him up and sealed him for my friend chuck. The tikis in the back
are foam carvings for my wedding in 2004.


This is chop, this is a little study for a mug I want to make.


This is Jumbo, he is Romulesian.

Thanks so much Sam, that means a lot. Your art and
tiki mugs are awesome. Ive checked out your work for
a long while now, I am a vintage freak too. Ive been through your
website but is there a thread here on TC with your work on it.

Jumbo is very cool - is he metal? We need more metal around here to fill in the thin spots. The velvet is very nice too. Your stuff is inspirational in both quality and ambition.

I'm glad you knew how to take the Romulan comment, Star Trek had some excellent conceptual designers that tried to express a raw, primitive look for some of the alien species and I wouldn't be surprised if some of their reference was Polynesian art!

Thanks fellas.

Robb, Jumbo is clay. The glaze is antique pewter which
is really cool, but not food safe. Thanks for your comments.

Dave, Ive got your little mug on my bookshelf. I love it.
My mug collection is packed away right now, I cant wait to put
him in there. I'll see you at Tiki Oasis.

Bai, Thank for the nice words, that means a lot.
You are an artistic genius.

I just wanted to get my new velveteen painting in here and
share a few older things with all of you.

The Tonga Hut Hand Built show has got me fired up and doing
new things. I will be in the artist alley at Tiki Oasis this year
and want to hold off posting new stuff until its over. I will
have ceramics and new and old paintings as well. I cant wait!


This is Frank the mug on velveteen.


The Raku gods smiled on this familiar fellow.
His glaze is copper.


Skull Idol


Maritime Skull


Lil' Headless


This is Herman. Hes a Tiki~Candy~Volcano. He's a candy
shelf for Heebe Jeebe novelty store in Petaluma , CA.

Thanks for looking, MP

So much good stuff I don't know where to start! I don"t see anything in this thread I wouldn't covet. You've got a great tiki aesthetic going on but my favourite of all is the Secret Society mug - you certainly have a great eye when it comes to design. Keep em rolling!

Thanks everyone for the support! It feels great to get some
positive feedback. Besides the love I get from my family and a few friends, it gets a little skull/tiki lonely out here on Penngrove Island. Looking foward to TO9. MP

Tremendous work. Absolutely tremendous.
(edit) I am so glad to share a chunk of NorCal with such talent! I work down the street from Heebe Jeebie's, and have admired that particular piece for awhile now. On behalf of us petalumans, Mahalo for adding to our daily Tiki goodness!
