Aloha kÔkou !!
Like The Creature from The Black Lagoon ... here I am floating back to the suface ... Its great to see new faces here and old familiar friends!!

After a forced hiatus due to a faulty ticker I am back ... I want to thank all of the well wishers and friends for their support this past year. You guys are awesome!!

New Stuff Finally !!! More to come!! I will be posting my latest work here. Hope you like the new additions to my cast of characters.

I have also taken the step into 3 Dimensions and will have tiki wall masks that match some of my current designs. Super cool new stuff coming to the Tiki-Caliente II in Palm Springs June 4-6th too!!

Mahalo nui loa

Here is another ... this one is just a selection of the guy in the middle.




Approx. 18" Tall

Alas I no longer have the personal ability to produce carvings so I have all of my original designs made into carvings by Jason over at Smokin Tikis. The quality of the work and faithfullness to my original is fantastic.
