We moved into the new house this past weekend (don't ask me about Home Depot screwing up our tile order TWICE and the fact that we are moving into a half tiled house ) Welcome to the "Mud Room" it's a double entendre since it's clay studio with lots of storage on one end and laundry room on the other end, one of the things we really liked about this house. It is also a dumping place for things we haven't figured a place for yet Now to get it cleaned out and set up in time for a dream project.

MadDogMike, which one of you likes Roosevelt? I've never hung a presidents photon in my home.


It's wonderful to see you have a home where your creative nature will take off running. This will be fun to watch. Wendy

Cool idea, CY! I love repurposing vintage/distressed items into art!

Mike, hope you get settled in soon and get that tile project out of the way!

Cheers,

Jeff

I've been super busy lately with other projects, but had some time to work on my weird Attenborough tiki foetus. I studied some pictures here and there, and here's what I've come up with:



I like the idea of this tiki being birthed by the sea, in the same way that Pacific islands are born by volcano. Soooo, I'm feeling inspired by this antique plate of the "Crater of Kilauea" and I'm thinking of incorporating something similar into the design. Maybe my foetus is inside a crater, percolating until he's ripe and ready? Oh, and that's not blood flowing through the umbilical, but lava.



Cheers, Jeff

Jon - Actually that room is about 10x20 feet, it's AWESOME!!!!

Wendy - Sorry, no Roosevelt. Jon was referencing an old April Fools prank I pulled several years ago

Thank you Sam and Queen KamehamAMY

I have always admired the work of the TC Micro-Masters like Bowana & Benzart - I decided to give it a shot myself. I wanted to make a little Marquesan Tiki Ivi Po'o, so I started with a chicken bone (KFC)


Next, I got a hold of a pair of surgical binocular loupes and a Dremell



After some carving, some wiped-off stain, and some varnish, here's the result, about 1/2 inch diameter and 3/4 inch tall





This was the real piece, I used an oversized dime


Jeff - Looks very cool, your imagination is running overtime!

tikitube that one eye staring at me is made of nightmares. I recognized the umbilical cord so I was happy when you said that was what it is.

MadDogMike you had the Roosevelt Dime from your wall shrunk! Love the bone carving. You totally got me.

It's all looking good. Wendy
