    Default Kuksa Adventures Ongoing User Photo Thread. Please submit photos

    Just as my kuksas are unique, the wonderful people buying them are as well.
    So far my list consists of all walks of life. Computer nerds, bushcrafters, knife makers, fashion models, magazine editors, fashion photographers, fisherman, surfers, hunters,housewives, farmers, and some are from different parts of the globe. It'dvery interesting to see an atlas one day of where my carvings find their owners.

    This will be a thread for members who have purchased some of my work to post images of it in use!

    I also have to say that I made my first sale last week to a really nice Japanese girl from NYC. She is actually climbing Mount Fuji as we speak. When she gets back I will have photos of my kuksa posted here to kick start this thread.

    The reason I want to do this project, for one is you guys can see more examples of my work, and two it's kind of bittersweet selling something handmade. This way I can remember each one, and see the new life they have. What's the most interesting is to see how far each will journey through out it's long life.


    This birch kuksa lives in Los Angeles California now

    I will not give away my hard-earned skills to a machine. Itís a bit like robbery with violence, for (machines are) not only intended to diminish my bank balance, but also to steal my power.

    OH YA! My dear friend Youmi is bouncing all around Japan with one of my kuksas she purchased.

    She sent me a picture and wrote me this:

    "It's an ancient pilgrimage trail that dates back to the 16th century! It's called the Kumano Kodo, and is definitely one of the most powerful places in all of Asia.
    thanks for the kuksa! got a lot of compliments on it from the other trekkers as well as the temple's monks!"

    It's a really huge thing to see my artwork travelling all around the world.. especially such an ancient and inspirational place!!
