Howdy Folks,
Here's my two-bits worth. I've been making Tikis for about 6 years now. After a few carvings, I started sculpting with concrete and making molds so I could reproduce the models I liked. When casting the bigger ones I make them hollow so they are affordable to ship. Most of what you see here is available for sale. You can Email me directly, or get more information at my website...

Cheers!

The Moais (21" tall)...

These were patterned after the mug from the Outrigger (16")...

I call this little 9" guy 'Kapu',

This is JuJu (21")

Occaisionally I make lamps...


and birdbaths too!


Here's a new one (2ft tall)...

This is a recent 3 foot tall Spitting Fountain...

I also do a variety of framed plaques and signs.




I made her too, but she's not for sale...

Let me be the first to say what a true Tiki Arteest Seamus is, I have 2 of his plaques and am very happy with them. Thanks again Seamus!

And I'll be the second to say how much I love Seamus' tikis. I just got my second one last Friday and it's mighty zaz. Can't wait to finish out his new home on the "tiki mantle cove". I also have one of the plaques and it's almost as zaz-tacular.

Got any of those 21" moais for sale??? Those are sweet.

I'm curious about how many of each style you produce.

Thanks Dawn and Tiki-bot, I truly appreciate the kind words, and especially the repeat business!
Yes I've got Moais for sale, Email me anytime and let me know what you want.
I'm guessing that my molds will do around a hundred or so, before they give out. Once the molds have given up, I plan on discontinuing that item and moving on with new designs. I will probably go with a numbered limited edition on my next model. I'm not really looking to get into the wholesale business, and people seem to like that approach, so I don't see any reason why that shouldn't work.

I just bought three "Tikis by Seamus" tikis, and I wanted to chime in and say they are beautiful and if you don't have any you are really missing out. They look even better in person than they do in the photos, and the photos look pretty damn good.

I bought a brown Kapu, a grey Ranui, and a green Monterey. I have a big picture window looking out over some tropical plants in front, and I wanted small outdoor tikis to sit in the foliage and face inside the house. The Kapu and Ranui are the perfect size for this, and now my cats look like they are worshipping tikis instead of lazing in the sun.

The larger Monterey is going to go poolside. I'm really impressed by these tikis, and plan to add more of Seamus' work to my collection soon.

I'll post some pictures when I get a chance.

Check out Seamus' work here:

Not as much as I paid you and thats the best you could come up with?

Seriously, thanks guys. The coastal storms have been kicking up lately and it's turned dark, wet and cold. Your kind words are appreciated. It keeps the concrete flowing!

Seamus,
Nice work, dude! Those Moai heads are way cool! Are they concrete?

Thanks Tiki Mon. Kudos to you as well- you got a nice site too.
Yeah, I work primarily with concrete. At almost 2ft. tall those Moais are a little heavy (30lbs or so), but once it's in the yard, it aint gonna rot! I make the big ones hollow to reduce the shipping cost.

I started out carving a little, but thought I'd try something different.
Keep up the good work!
Seamus

Do you make fountain tikis? If so, I'll refer potential buyers to you. I get occasional inquiries.

I've always wanted to get into molded tikis...partially because of the production and special effect capability... and partially to hedge my bets against old age. Some of these palmwood logs are extremely heavy until the cure out. Did you make your molds in fiberglass or what?

Yeah, fountains, birdbaths, fireplaces, ponds, youname it. I've even got a funky volcano in my back yard! My favorites are the spitting Moais. All you need is a small pond or water feature and a small pump, and they hook right up. I've built small water pools to go with them too, but it's just one more item to ship.
After much experimentation, I settled on rubber molds. They seem to work fine for most applications, but do have a shorter lifespan w/ concrete.

Seamus,
I saw some of your stuff in Vegas at the Red Rooster. It was really nice, but wouldn't fit in my carry-on. I thought you might like to see a pic of an old concrete tiki fountain. This one is stillin use at the Best Western Tahitian Resort in Holiday, Florida near Tarpon Springs. (Sorry the picture is kind of small.) I love this fountain and it's very much in keeping with the stuff your doing.
