Ok much more to show.
Here is the Boylan Barrel I named it after the
person who called and said "look John I need something
more nautical than tiki" (Think super cool NY accent)
Amy I could talk to you for hours.
She is a supporter of many tiki artists.
I have lights in every home, tea shop and rest type stop she
has and that is a great honor.
THANK YOU AMY!!!
PS most of these have a different message on the inside of the copper
sleeve(the part you can't see unless you take them apart)
That's probably for the best for now.
You can see one message here. (made 15 of these lights for Amy)

Skipster, thank you so much for that amazing lamp, it is so boootiful! It now hangs next to an O.A. lamp in my library:



Besides everything else you do on your lamps, I was looking at your rope and knot work, and can only compare it to the genre of Sailor's Fancy Work, the kind of craft projects that sailors kept themselves busy with during long sea voyages.



Unlike well-known Scrimshaw, rope and knot fancy work is an under-appreciated art form well suited for the Tiki Lounge.



I found this piece, converted from an empty rum bottle, in my home port of Hamburg:







There are a few folks who appreciate this handicraft:

All I can say is keep up the good work, maybe some day it will be in a museum...

You hit the nail on the head Sven.
When my wife and I went to San Diego
I went to the ship museums there.
Being on those old ships and seeing the rope work
was so awesome. ( I shold live near an ocean)
You are cheating yourself if you don't go to these musems at some
point in life.
Came home with tons of close up photos of knotts.
Found this book while there.
It's not cheap but worth the money.






And I love those old roped bottles!

The Light looks great there.
Enjoy!

No gulls, but how about
puffins instead?

For all the rope art enthusiasts (forgive me if I digress, Skip), here is another great use for the material I haven't seen that often:

In Santa Monica there was a street with TWO Tiki-titled apartment buildings. The first one was the TIKI, of which I believe I published this photo in my books:



Now rope FRAMING is cool, but what I really liked was what they did for the TIKI TOO, down the street from the Tiki:



Unfortunately, by the time I got to document it (in Sept.'93), the lettering had somewhat decayed, so I never used it for publication.
But I often wondered about the way it must have looked in its heyday, hoping an original photo would surface some day.
Probably as cool as this rope font:



Next: Anchor chain art...

Sven that rope sign is very cool!
The rope needs to be treated to keep that
shape.
Like every year.
Here is Mike Rowe tarring ropes on the Star of India.
Also rope can stretch a whole lot when outside.
