Kiki, It was great to meet you too, Yes TO was awesome and the family had fun also. My wife Kim and son Calvin got to do some real
fun stuff while I was vending and we all partied together at night. Seeing the all the surf bands was great! Thanks for the kind words,
I love your art too. You have a high level of creativity and quality that goes into your pieces. I would love to collaborate with you someday. I'm sorry I haven't posted pics Ive just been busy catching up with everything I let slide the past few months. I will chat with you soon, cant wait to see some more of your pieces. Big Hug!

Hey Everyone, I want to show you some of my work for Tiki Oasis. Ive been in a funk
lately and trying to get family stuff done and what not has kinda delayed this post.
As some of you know I had a table in the artist alley this year. My family and I had
a blast and also my first time in San Diego. Really cool city, I love the vibe down there.
You may have seen some of these pieces in the artist alley thread but I
wanted to get them posted here. Some of these photos arent that great but
I was kinda rushed for time before oasis


Charcoal Chop


Hang,n


Chop the mug. This guy is hanging in the Freaky Boutiki
gallery right now. Thanks Hank! Its an honor to be included
in with all those great artists.


My first bowl


Two face


Pink skull mug


Retro Moai


Ole Buggy


Frank the mug. I am working on some more of these.


Original frank carving. This is the original clay face
of the frank the mug model. At the Tonga hut show I gave away
all my remaining pendants to the artists that night. Somehow
squid missed out. I pm'd him later and told him I would
get him something sooner or later. Finally, I got it to him
at Oasis. If any of you have had brothers or sisters you know
damn well everything has to be fair!


Crazy mojo stick thing. I gave this little carving to
Crazy Al at Oasis. I never knew what to do with this
little guy. I thought Al could use it. Letting Al know
he has been an inspiration was huge!


Frank the mug painting

Thanks for looking, got to get to bed!!!
I will post some more stuff real soon.

Kinny, I'll have some trade painting pics for you asap.
I thought we could do an interactive mp painting for our trade.

Cheers, MP

trade painting pics!
that's right...
PNG,right?
really really wanting to see what that group of islands can inspire in you!
Step to it,lazybones!


that mojo stick thing is waaaay cool!
Al may have to pierce a drumskin with that mean lookin thing!

Frank the mug is nailing it with the perfectly placed details!
Tho, i would rather plant an orchid in it than drink out it
'cause you can't look at it while you're drinking from it....

i like the mix of different feels on the ol' Buggy
a perfect composition of 2 and 3-D!

Pink Skull Mug, i have hanging proudly in my back painting/main room...
i love how it pops off the background!Thank you for the adoption papers...
and moooose-stashes!

Very nice for a first bowl!
Those Moais have the clean graphicness of a Witco
without all dem pesky grains!

Charcoal Chop nailed it too!
You gots a great sense of presentation...

Great warm-up!
What's next?

the black velvet IS quite dramatic...
The first too may be more Hawaiian than New Guinea
Fur?
my studio is a dust factory...
Send that fur to Mitch O'Connell-he loves it!
But-having not seen the "meat"
i will hold back until the PNG "meat" of the piece is underway....
Does this mess up your Factory production line?
thank you,kind sir!

Wise decision kenny, the meat of the painting is under way.

Here is a new skull mug I'm working on. My son and I were playing with
clay last night and I liked what was happening with my lump. I named him
Irwin and he is inspired by my Ivan skull we had out on the table. My Randotti
skulls from Disneyland are some of my most prized treasures.

Here are some progress pics.











Right about now Irwin is getting "leather hard". My favorite
stage for carving clay.




Still more work to do.

MP, I was asleep at the wheel and missed your last few posts
While the veterans dream of the fight,
Fast asleep at the traffic light

Love the Charcoal Chop and the bowl
CMST (Crazy Mojo Stick Thing)? - 'nuf said I too, stopped and told Crazy Al he was an inspiration to me. What a character! (I mean that in a good way)

This interactive deal between you and Kinny is fun. The frames are cool and all but what attracted my eye was the textures behind the frames; is your studio an old barn? How cool is that!

"Ivan the Awesome" is looking, well...AWESOME! Is that porcelain?

Thanks a lot Lorilei and MadDog. Im having fun carving again.
Here some progress on Irwin and a Tiki Bob mug I just finished today.
I'm doing a Raku firing in a couple of weeks so I need some stuff. Hope I can
get a couple of molds made of these two if I have time.

Mike, that is an old barn I work in. There's a lot of space out here on the farm.
The clay I'm using is B-mix, very soft and creamy for carving.





Irwin has a funky little coaster now.


My square version of Bob, a very popular fellow. Having fun carving this one.
Cheers
