cheers. I made that video cause i was sick of searching for bone carving techniques and there were hardly any good resources. I have the video for all the process but most of the carving is done by chisel, so i edited it down.
Heres some pics i didnt have time to post before: Toka-sand stone


Upoko:

Greetings Rainhawk, it's Nice to find yet Another Ben posting here on TC, WELCOME! Sorry I had not seen your post until now but Anyway I Love your bone pieces anad your Shop looks Interesting too, ncluding that huge slab of wood. from the bone chunks I see in the background it looks as though you have really been busy and it seems you carve wood as well. Your chisel Must be very sharp to pare the bone as it does.
Thanks Big time for the videos too, they are great for learning and Inspiration. Thanks
"Other" Ben

Kia ora Rainhawk, you've got some sweet traditional-influenced chops and there is a definitely an appreciative audience here for this style of work. I really enjoyed sitting back and watching that vid last night, even though I had already spent the whole evening carving. Gotta try the chisels on bone myself when I finally get back to it. There are a lot of new threads being posted here all the time and it's very easy for them to slip down the page without many replies, so just be patient and keep posting and the questions and accolades will follow!

Tena koe Rainhawk. Good to have another Kiwi on board - nice work!

As has been mentioned already, TC members are all different, some posting everyday, others only checking in every few weeks or months. Hang in there (you may find more responce with rakau-whakairo around here too, mostly woodchippers).

video? Am I missing something..?

So, a few Q's for you: where did you learn to carve? wananga trained? Ive recently been sitting at the feet of a great woodcarver and even with that luxury, know how difficult surface decoration is. You seem to have a good handle on it. Im sure you have a lot more to share with us - how about it?

Thanks Guys

I love carving wood and stone also but bone is where im at for now. Im in the process of failing my B.A in traditional maori whakairo. Wananga.
I am trained both in wananga and whare maire anyway. Mostly I was inspired by friends who grew up in whakairo carving and stories of how their family carved waka etc. A friend taught me some traditional maori wood whakairo and I taught him Reo. I was also trained how to carve stone/bone by hand.
It takes a life time to learn and i still feel like im at the start. If you have questions ill try to answer. I have alot of questions 2.

I have a edited part of a bone carving video up on you tube. Its on my homepage also... most of the carving was done with a single flat Stanly chisel thats as blunt as hell.

Hopefully il post some better videos later on
