Spent a little time in the studio this week hammering out some more pieces. Here are a few "in-progress" shots: The first is The Skipper, which is made to pay homage to SD surfing legend Skip Frye. The Skipper has long hair, shaggy brow, and will be aged/ textured as he dries. I know, not very traditional, but I tried to include some more traditional tiki elements.




The Tangaroan Long Distance Rummer is up next. While not 100% traditional, I used Tangaroan elements (less lines, I know, and more teeth) for the face. More details will be carved in as he dries. The "Rum?" on the back will have more texture, and the circles added will be cut out into different shapes. This one is definitely a work in progress.



The hairpin legged bowl has been bisque fired, and now I have to figure out how to glaze it. While the chubby legs are no longer mid century modern looking, a silver look might be in order. The little cracks in the skull should be covered up when glazing- it's my first crack in a bisqued piece, which was bound to happen one of these days. Any thoughts are appreciated.


While my wife isn't as attached to the ever growing world of tiki at home, Dreyfus is coming along & exploring his options:


Feedback, as always, is appreciated. Thanks!
