Well I've been really busy the last few weeks and have been working on heaps of stuff, made a trip to hawaii and just finished with the Rose seidler house Fifties fair.but as always haven't really posted many pics ... anyways I thought I'd post a pic of my silly puffer fish lamp


and also a picture of the market Stall me and my wife Tiki Diva(love) had at the fifties fair.


The fifties fair is an annual event that I had the pleasure of working with this year and made several props as their theme was Tiki being a historical society it's fairly conservative and the decor was subtle.... but heres a pic of the sign I made for the event.

It was a great event to be a part of and for me the most important part was having the pleasure to meet several people here in Australia that are true tiki afficianados.
I have posted more pics on my myspace blog.

Ahoy,...well, I don't know how the weather has been in the northern hemisphere but the weather here in Australia has been crap, we've had wind, dust storms, 90cm of rain,cold and miserable for a good three weeks now. so it's been difficult to get the motivation, let alone inspiration to carve, today I had a slight break in the weather and got out there to finish up my latest log...I still might go back but here is the result thus far.

Introducing the formerly known as log ..."Cap'n cooked makes a rad hat."

It's made out of a recycled pier post(possibly telegraph pole) complete with cracks, Screws and enough inclusions to blunt any chisel.





Too show scale I thought I'd jump in this one

thats all folks.....


As always check out my scurvey blog
with other stuff I'm working on.

Hey cap'n! Nice. I really love that. Good work with all the cracks and holes. It really has a lot of character. Nice work! I like your take on the headdress too. Very cool.

1 conch shell
12 clams
2 fish
1 spear
1 adze or chisel

only problem ...hard to drag back to cave.
especially from land down under.

Thanks ben , I'm glad you enjoy it , that puffer fish is actually a lamp as well.

it's totally stupid(thats why i like it), I actually have always loved Puffer fish.my grandma used to bring them back from vacation in florida. so as I got older I figured I need another puffer fish...I found one on the beach and tried to taxidermy it, it didn't help it had been in the sun a while. I managed to dry it out but was unable to inflate it. It was by far the grossest thing I've ever done.(i'll post pics soon) And to this day when I think about it, it makes me want to vomit. So thats why I figured I'll carve one out of wood instead.

Beware of real puffer fish lamps ,my mother dropped one on her foot and it pierced her entire foot.Straight through

Thanks Marcus, I appreciate the encouragement. I really dig your work, the last Maori w/shrunken head that I saw of yours was amazing really really exquisite! gives me something to shoot for. I know your in Australia , so if you ever make it passed the NSW central coast stop in for a mai tai.

Aloha and Ahoy!

I finally got four new "Bone Nose" mugs out of the kiln, here they are....I hope you enjoy!



Here on my island summer has finally kicked in so that means the carving season has also arrived.
here is my first warm up....thirty minute TIKI...well actually I should say hour and thirty. thirty to carve....one hour to dig the hole and lift him in place...I really wish I owned a crane.

I find it alot easier to carve when you warm up!
And gives me something to look at while I carve on a hardwood log that takes me three weeks instead of thirty minutes.




I'm also working on a log that washed up on my local beach...I've been carving on it over the last two weeks...there is something really relaxing about carving right on the beach ...pictures of that to follow.
