2020 Auctions are now accepting bids through Jan 11 

These custom sculpted items are fabricated from steel rod, then aluminum screening is glued to the frame. The screen is then sprayed with a polyurethane coating. Some areas are shaped with open-cell foam. The final shape is then painted and the organic decorative material is glued to that. Live flowers may be added but will be removed before pick up. Each item takes dozens of hours to build and decorate. Some of the larger tikis take well over 100 hours.

All listed dimensions are approximate. Scroll to the bottom of this screen to see the list. The coverings are generally not weatherproof, but will last longer outdoors if sprayed with a clear polyurethane coating. The steel frame is weatherproof but will lightly rust if exposed to moisture.

These auctions are a Sierra Madre Rose Float Association fundraiser… so bid generously! Material prices are listed for each auction. Any amount above that is a tax-deductible donation.
