Hey everyone! We just finished our second recycled art show. Nobody jumped on our tikis, but we had a great show! Any advice? I saw on a page that Lake Surfer wrote that tikis are quite a niche. Everyone loved the work, don't get me wrong, but no buyers. The shows were quite an experience with lots of really good peeps. The other vendors were awesome and really helpful! Our works are definitely works of love and it's very hard to put a price on them, so maybe thats an issue If someone would pay my mortgage I would make metal tikis all day and just let them pile up in the corner or give them away for free. Anyway I did sell 2 pieces this summer! I'm pumped!!! Has any one had any experience with Etsy?

Anyway.....later!

T

Shows are over and we did pretty good. I'm finding that everyone loves the tiki's. However I would like to show them off in person to some true tiki lovers. Do you guys travel to shows often. I see ads at the top all the time and am always curious. I live way up here in Vancouver, WA. Not quite as far as Seeks. But if there are any show in the Pacific NW would some one shoot me a reply.

Thanks for looking,

metalhead

Here's some of the latest photos.

Great work mate!

You might find the hot rodders will be a good market to try and sell to. Check out vending options at some rod runs and on forums like the HAMB (Honkey Ass Message Board)

Hey metalhead i dig it man. Here is a metal one i finished this morning. It has flamethrowers on its head, but have to wait til night to photograph it. It is made from a vintage bomb casing I dug up years ago. I am bringing it to TO 10 to deliver it to the guy that commissioned it. it was inspired by my recent war god mug score. "Fire" glaze = real fire! ha makes sense right?
the start

some layout

the eyes

some decoration

the grin

where the fire goes

more pics with fire soon!

love it! I think you have it going on here. I like the detail in the head dress.
Makes it look like notches thing going down.

I'm happy to see some metal work start showing up around here...it's not really carving, but hey, it's cool.

I apprenticed for some really fine Colorado blacksmiths for a few years back when I was in college (just a clean up boy really, but I did learn quite a bit). I may have to give this a go when I can find time to take a break from ceramics.

Would love to see some tapa style railing...
