Thanks Heath for the mug purchase and thanks to everyone else who commented.

Hamo, i can see the resemblance. I need to find one of those straw hats to fit the mug.

=============================================================================

Weather has been pretty miserable and because i have to work outside i haven't been doing much although i did finish a new Witco 'style' flower, a Plumeria/Frangipani.

Wow the two flowers you are doing are so different yet cohesive. Wonderful.

Thanks Wendy.

=========================================================

Found these replica brass ship lights at a thrift store a few weeks ago.



Made some backing boards for them.....



..... and then had them wired up with coloured LEDs.




So stoked with how they turned out.

I bought some new artwork recently and just got around to making some frames for them.

This first one is a piece by Derek Yaniger. Sadly an original painting is out of my budget but i was able to afford an original drawing. I've had the sea grass material for quite a while now but this is the first time i've used it for anything. The frame is pretty simple but i think it's very effective and looks great.



The second is from an artist i follow on Instagram called Eddy Crosby. I initially bought the redhead on the left and when i went to pick it up from him i had the idea to turn it into a triptych and basically 'finish' the scene. I sketched out the layout and told Eddy exactly what i wanted in it and he nailed it perfectly.



And here's a close up pic of each painting.

Everyone seems to be doing enamel pins at the moment and i thought, if you can't beat 'em then join 'em, and had one of my mug designs turned into a pin. Decided to go with Bob'O'Nut as i figured he might appeal to general pin collectors, not just those into Tiki. I'm very happy with how he turned out.



Also designed a new horizontal logo and used that for the backing card.



Made a few more Witco 'style' flowers including this Monstera leaf which is the first one with holes.



As far as ceramics go i've only done two firings. One of those was a glaze firing of pieces that had been bisqued and were sitting around waiting for me to get to them and the other was a kiln load of stuff that people had requested and extra pieces to fill the kiln whilst doing those.

Here's some random pics of just some of the various pieces that were in those two firings.

A couple of Tangata Manu's.




Some Hei Matau with various types of added embellishments.






And some miscellaneous.












Although there are some other things i still need to list, what hasn't sold in the pictures above you'll find in my Etsy store (link below) along with some other pieces not pictured, and a listing for the Bob'O'Nut pin.

How many Bob-0-nut pins does it take to hold a double Mai-Tai


Great work as always Bruddah

Love the pin. I'm doing buttons that I can include with orders. Dan's niece does buttons as her profession.
My latest one is of a group of my Tiki Bob's. So we both chose Bob he should be so pleased. I guess I better post
mine soon.

You have done incredible work. The hook is terrific.

Wish you were closer, Wendy
