Trader Tark Tiki Carver
Bring Your garden, lounge/Bar or any area to life with a hand carved Trader Tark Tiki. Relax with a cocktail, a Tiki and Imagine your self marooned on a far away beach.
Tiki Carvings from the sunny shores of Brighton - East Sussex UK - made to order, or there are generally a few ready to go.
Carved in Oak, Ash or softer woods like Pine, Douglas fir and larch.
These items are very heavy and will stand the test of time, although being a natural product, some cracking may occour dependant of the tempretures where they are being displayed. This however adds to the character and treated well they should last for years.
I like to distress my work in order to give it an ancient look. I generally dye it then coat with Danish oil.
I take my inspiration from original Polynesian carvings, but lean more towards pop-art versions maybe found in the '50's or '60 Californian tiki bars
Apart from the traditional free standing tiki heads and poles I also make hanging framed wall carvings . Inspired by Mid century decor with a definite nod to Witco, The well known purveyor of chainsaw carved, Scorched Cedar from the 1960/70's
Delivery is possible in and around the Sussex area.
