Aloha everybody!

I'm really excited about Oasis! Here's some pieces I finished in the nick of time...

To continue the tiki temple bowl series I started with the Stockton Isander and Mai Kai bowls... the Tiki Ti, in bowl form!


And to commemorate this year's beatnik theme, I've created a mug set of a pair of marq bongos, playing themselves:


Speaking of drums, here's a completed pic of some of the PNG drum pendants I created:


And a completed pic of the PNG croc bowl:


Here's some PNG platters:



And another cassowary bowl... this one got a little crazy big... it's 15" high, possibly the tallest ceramic piece I've made to date!


See everyone in a few hours!

What does an octopus at Tiki Oasis?
Come meet the little guy at the art show!

Support your local artist.
To finance this rum-filled Tiki Oasis weekend, I created a limited edition 18x24 print of my art show piece.
Which is available for a nominal fee of just $20 while they last…
(reply with your request here, wink.)

Here is a preview of Crazy 8!

After last night's 2 sets at the Bali Hai (wow!), let me throw out a plug for tonight's ̀xthauele set on the main stage. There are a ton of great acts playing this weekend so it can be hard to catch them all. But if you're here at Oasis and really enjoy your exotica get down there and see 'em this evening.

I'm so missing everyone. Next year, for sure I'm there at the Oasis, come hell or high water. I'm going to drown my sorrows tonight by hitting up the Tonga Hut and Kahuna Tiki. I'm at the Oasis vicariously through the pictures that are being posted.

Did anyone take video of King Kukulele's Tiki Tot Tour when he went through the restaurant? My mom and I were at the table that became the focus of his talk for a while. While my mom loves Denny and greatly admires his way with kids, she is not as tolerant of children so the expression on her face as she was surrounded by seemingly thousands of screaming rugrats was priceless. The kids and the King were actually fine but she was expecting the worst!

I just wanted to say thank you to Otto, Baby-Doe, and everyone else involved in making Tiki Oasis the epic event, that it is. It was my first year in attendance, and know it'll be an annual event from here on out.

To everyone who stopped by my booth at the car show to say hi, just browse, or purchase one of my ceramic pieces, thank you very much. Your kind words and support mean a lot and make me want to get right back in the studio.

Even with vending on Saturday and Sunday, I got to see more live music and party with great friends, than I've gotten to in a long time. See you next year Tiki-O!

If you missed out, there's a few pictures linked below.

Also a great slideshow in LA Weekly on-line.

Thanks so much to all the people who put in the work it takes to pull off such a fantastic event! I love sensory over-load and it does not get much better than this. The bands were cool with Ixtahuele being one of the best I have seen in a long time, the R.I.P. Tides are always fun and the Three Somes from Serbia were also entertaining. Special thanks go to Suze for being the first person of the event to purchase a piece from me (again), Brett from San Diego that bought "Airic" and then loaded him in a cab for the ride home, and many mucho mahalos go to Jason Lee and Michelle for taking "Juan and Atu" home and helping me with my journey back to Oregon. Looking forward to next year's space themed extravaganza!

I can't say thank you enough to Otto, Baby Doe, the Tiki Oasis volunteers, the entertainers, educators, the artists, and to my fellow attendees. Everyone puts so much into making Tiki Oasis what it is. It's pretty rare to look forward to something all year (every year) and have it exceed expectations each time.

It's time to start digging through the digital camera and let loose the highlights.

Mahalo,

Kevin

My first Oasis as well and it was SO amazing! Double ditto on the big thanks to Otto and Baby Doe, everything was so fun. Can't wait for next year.

Hairball & TikiRootsRocka, good to meet you guys! So many great people, and it was fun meeting lots of people from here and Instagram. Gotta start saving my clams for more awesome stuff next year!
