Jon (Hang10tiki)& I made our swap at Oasis. After Oasis I had a motorcycle trip planned with some friends so I didn't get a chance to put out Jon's great tiki. Here it is in my patio. It has an end table all it's self. Thanks again Jon, it looks great.
It was cool meeting everyone & putting faces to names at Oasis.
Thanks to MDM for putting this swap together.






Jon, The lamp looks good in your room!

I received Pikey's Dog's great swap piece a couple days ago, but unfortunately my hard drive bit the big one so I've been a bit out of commission. I'm on a loaner now & will try to get pics posted this weekend.

How about another Swap. Perhaps a Xmas theme?

Just to confirm, mine arrived.

Unfortunately the 'blood' in the cooking pot wasn't fully set, and had 'run' in the post, wrecking the item in the process.

I'm afraid it ended up in the trash before I had chance to take pictures.

Here is the groovy carving from the swap. I put it on my display of other art. This is the first tiki piece I have. I think it goes well with the machete.

It's really too bad that you didn't take photos or wait for the blood to dry. The one thing I know about being an artist
is that most things can be repaired and brought back. That's how I became a tiki artist. Dan brought me things that needed
a tune up. I learned this craft by doing repairs.

I think by throwing it out without taking photos so Kele could address the issue of blood in the cannibal house you
lost all possibility of having this rectified.

There was a lot of work done to make this scene. A cool piece of art is now gone forever. I'm glad there are photos still to enjoy.





A very sad story. It's time to get back to work for the next swap. Wendy

Wendy,

Believe me, if it could have been salvaged it would have - the item had obviously ended up upside down in transit, allowing the unset liquid in the 'cooking pot' to run.
This meant that the straw roof was stained, there was long strands of the stuff all over the painted background - and some of it was still wet, which I only found out as I was unpacking it (it ended up on me, my wife and the kitchen counter in the process).
This is the reason it ended up straight in the trash before photos could be taken - I couldn't risk it causing further damage to anything else because it really was that bad!

I wasn't going to mention on this thread about the damage, in fact I told Mike via e-mail as much, but it appeared that folks were complaining about the lack of feedback.

I was sorely disappointed with the whole experience and it's definitely made me think about my future participation in such trades (I'm already sitting the next one out), and your second guessing me in the post above has cemented my thoughts on this.

ps.

I didn't want anything "rectifying" - I was just letting folks know what happened.

I wasn't blaming my trade partner - the blood could well have appeared 'set' to the touch, but was still liquid underneath.

I was just unlucky, these things happen, that's life.

What was this blood made of?

And you should not feel bad as this art bomb was sent to you.
Wendy do you think he should have sent this back to be fixed,
then sent back to him after it was fixed?
