Hi Friends, I'm posting information for a dear friend Roge. Wendy


IN HIS OWN WORDS!

A NOTE FOR THE NEAR FUTURE: WE WILL BE PRESENTING A NEW TIKI LAMP DESIGN. THERE WILL BE CHOICES AVAILABLE FOR CUSTOMIZING YOUR TIKI ISLAND HANGING LAMP. (Nov 30th, this evening photos & description, west coast time)

WENDY CEVOLA IS NATIONALLY KNOWN FOR HER TIKI SCULPTING. SHE MADE THE ORIGINALS AND WE ARE MAKING MOLDS AND CASTINGS AND COMBINING THEM INTO A GREAT LOOKING RED ROCK TIKI LAMP. WE PLAN ON HAVING PHOTOS UP BY tonight November 30th, Pacific coast time around 6 to 8 p.m.

IF YOU ARE A FAN OF HAWAII, EASTER ISLAND, TIKIS, THEN take a look, see you tonight!

This Tiki Lamp has been a fun design project. I contacted Wendy Cevola to sculpt the Tiki Head and the Easter Island statue. So thanks to her artistic nature, we have the heads. I made a mold off and cast them using a red resin (per Wendy’s request) which has become part of the rock panel sides. Real Lava Rock has been added to the black putty seams. You can choose to have solid red resin rocks or a mixture of red rocks with black poured around each one to restrict the light coming through. Ask for a design form to be emailed to you.

Measurements are 15 lbs, 10.5” wide x 15.5” high, a four sided rectangle with an open bottom for down light and a closed top. The lamp is wired with 15 ft of chain and 18’ of wire/plug/on-off switch and 2 ceiling hooks.

The time it takes to make a unit is between 2 and 3 weeks.


To Order or view his lamps go to this link later tonight. 11/30/11.

This is the lamp I ordered from Roge in colors of my choice.











Roge is the original resin chunk lamp artist from the 1960's. I thrilled to have been able to do the sculptures of the tikis for this lamp. You can customize your order to your favorite colors, check it out friends. Cheers, Wendy

PS step by step images of this lamp as it is manufactured are on my "other crafts" thread.

Hi Friends, Roge is working on a less labor intensive version of his tiki lamp. He hopes to make it more affordable at around $200. I'll post photos as soon as they are available. Meanwhile for fun you can always check out his Etsy site. Wendy

Hi Friends, Roge is hard at work this weekend filling orders and ready for more. I don't have photos of the less expensive one yet but when I do I'll be posting for him. Thanks for checking back.

Every lamp can be done in the colors of your choice. Wendy

I just got one of these fantastic chunky lights-packed with lots of care-arrived in record time in great condition! I have my eye on the red one showing above....might have to give up rum for a few days to buy it! Well worth it-quality workmanship-even better than my original ones! Thanks for your quality craftsmanship! Mahalo! The blue and green glow gives my Mai Tais a great look!

Quasimodo57, can you share a picture of the one you got? (I would love to see a blue and green version!)

Me too. I'm going to have to remind him I am supposed to get photos. I am so happy you like your lamp. I don't even have one yet. Cheers, Wendy

Hey Mikeytiki, If you don't want to wait for a posted photo, you can click on the link at the top of this thread. It'll take you to Roger's Etsy store. If you look at the ones he has already sold, you'll see the blue/green one. Quasimodo57 is one lucky guy; that one is gorgeous! ~murphdog

Hey Murphdog, I believe the one he bought has smaller chunks and my tiki heads. I'm looking forward to finding out if my guess is right. Wendy

Sorry, Wendy! Then like MikeyTiki, I would really like to see that one too! Thanks for bringing this artist to our attention. I've been adding his lamps to my wish list on Etsy and hoping that my husband takes the hint!

I haven't hung the lamp in its final location, but will take some photos. This lamp has the large chunks, which looks pretty cool. Photos to be posted later this week.....

Roger I'm sure would say thank you TikiG.
murphdog who would guess you are female with that name! Wish lists are good.
Quasimodo57 I'm looking forward to seeing your photos.

I was with Roger today in Grass Valley viewing his newest creations and orders he is filling.

I'm baaaaack! Roge just sent me a photo showing the new small size. He hopes to keep it around $200 but he's still crunching numbers. The tikis are the same size he just took some off the top and bottom of the panel.

Hi Wendy and all, Roger emailed me a pre-shipping photo of my lamp. It has to cure a few more day, I can hardly wait to get it.

Mahalo!
Chris
