BIOGRAPHY
WAYAN TIKI CARVER
BALI, INDONESIA

Wayan started out as an apprentice to his father doing silversmithing.  But he developed a love for working with natural animal products such as antler, mammoth ivory, tagua nut and cow bone.  So he pursued his skills using those mediums to a high art form.  We met Wayan in 2016 and toured his studio, placed our first order, and he has become like a son to us ever since.  Above is a photo of Wayan (left) and Glenn (right).
Many of the carvings you see on these pages are his work (they are marked with “Wayan”).  When you buy one of his carvings, you will receive a biography info card with the piece.

We sent him a couple hundred pounds of premium moose antler from Maine to work with, out of a 600 pound stash we acquired from a retired artist.   We also sent him 100 pounds of mammoth ivory from Siberia.  Here is Wayan with some of the moose antler he is working with.
