Aloha friends,

here's a couple of new velvets and a new tiki from da south sea arts duo Uncle Leo and me.

this is a velvet dats 3 ft tall by 2 1/2 feet wide. I call this one "my office"!! no, I wish it was my office. It's of a beautiful wahine (a must) and my carving Exotica that da wahine is leaning on. Also has my new mug "da big puka" on da table.


close ups











make sure your velvet has da gecko south seas stamp so da peopo know you got quality art on da wall and not just some velvet from some garage sale artist.


here is a 36x60 velvet and a 6 foot 7inch tiki I carved for a show I have comin up.










mahaloz fo da look.







here is a carving I call "da big puka"

and the new mug coming in summer by South Sea Arts. Also called da big puka. This will not be a limited edition and will be a nice low price around $15. maybe retail in stores here around $20. Available only here in Hawaii. Not yet for sale.






the base of a coffee table in da making



the top carved from a natural shaped slab of wood. still have a little work to do on da top.

almost done. the top was carved then I pored resin to flatten out the top so drinks could be placed on it.

still needs some work.

another original black velvet by uncle Leo. He has some different designs coming out but I'm just a big fan of this design with da wahine and tiki in da back as you can see.


this one I just had to have him do for my personal collection because of da beauty of da wahine. I got her out of a magazine and new she had to be on velvet.


I'm really going to push these beutiful velvets as soon as he has more designs. He does self portraits on velvets that are amazing.

mask



that's it for now. I have another special surprise but will be seen later.

Mahaloz

not happening lately, but hopefully that will change in about a week when i get some free time. i'v been working on another project (non tiki) for one of my friends, but hopefully next week its all about the tikis.

i missed out on your first mug but i'm deffinatly going to have to get this new one when it comes out. again man great work, i really like the way you find aways to put that little tiki in different place on your big tikis, and that hollow bottom looks great.

Gecko is that mask available to buy? Also are you starting a list for your mugs? I ask about the list because I missed out on the Denny and hoping that same fate does not happen for the rest of your sweet mugs,mahalo.
