The Tiki Warrior series came about after I was invited to exhibit at a tiki-themed art show north of New York City. I had so much fun working on these pieces! Each one made me laugh out loud as it came together with its own set of unique facial features.

The warriors are made with recycled copper wire and accented with brass wire. Cactus thorns and natural stone beads are also used. All wire components are shaped by hand, textured, and joined by using an acetylene torch with silver solder. They are all finished with a highly polished surface then sealed with many layers of clear-coat to ensure a long-lasting shine.
