Here are some of my projects- lamps and other stuff that I have created in past few years.
here they are lit up:
Here is a lighter blue one I had hanging outside and a huge monster 16" globe that took a very long time to tie
Didn't get a chance to take a pic of it lit up before it got sold, but you can see sunlight coming though it below
I've also been obsessed with shrunken heads, so I sorta converted one of the cheapy party store ones into a light.
Then and of course, naturally, once you have done a puffer, on to the next-my all time fav tiki lamp puffer in a float! Yes. They make me bleed, ouch, but they are worth it!
Here are a few more I made a while ago, bamboo ones were a special request from a friend.
First one of it's type:
Tiki is really inspiring and exciting to me and it keeps me motivated to try different things.
During our trip to Chicago a few years ago, we made a stop at Natural History Museum and checked out their Oceanic exhibit, oh my! They have a huge collection of PNG items, mind-blowing. I have seen Duk Duk before, but not a life-sized one, so I got inspired to make a mug.
These are my first attempts at the world of ceramics
and here is another one, hand built coils, it is small so it holds my swizzles
So the proportions were a bit off on the first Duk, so I made another one.
I had one of those old vintage Duraglass floats, so I made him a net! New type of the net made with treated rope.
Drilled glass float:
Small 5" yellow float drilled and sandblasted on the inside and out:
A few small floats, and a small 5" lamp,-handblown by me, sandblasted.
9" blue float- handblown by me, net made with hemp rope.
I hope you like it! More coming soon!
