PostSubject: My Collection-new guy! sea life, deep sea, ancient sea- if it lives in the ocean..   Fri Jul 06, 2012 3:35 pm

Hi everyone,
First off thanks again for the warm welcomes! Here are some completely organized not so good shots of what I have to date. I acquired most of these over six or seven years ago it seems, and am now getting back into them. Lucky to have acquired these when I did, it seems many are extremely hard to find now.
Thought it was mainly deep sea, but it turns out to be a deep sea, ocean in general, oddity, ancient ocean collection. My wife and I are both biologists, she with her PhD., and I am a biologist marine life artist full time. I actually use these as models for the art a lot. I collect mainly Japanese due to the high accuracy and overall quality. They are simply gems most if not almost all of them. Especially the Kaiyodo. So, here is a sampling of the deep sea, aquatales, Enoshima aquarium, night museum, and dinotales from the seas. Some very hard to get/aquarium available only ones in there as well.
Thanks!
Craig

Yes, the divers and subs are part of the deep sea Kaiyodo. I found all three large subs, all the divers, and I need one green small sub to complete..
Haven't seen that in years though. And the price now.. oofah.

Here is my website:

I do very high end all by hand custom inlays for mainly the guitar industry. Materials are stone, pearl, metals, woods. etc.. I specialize in marine life, but have been "forced" to do it all, people, etc.. Laughing

It's all hand drawn, cut, and engraved. Pieces range in time to produce from three to hundreds of hours.
The website is four years old, best to see more work by facebooking me. Look for Craig Lavin Friend me, I'm good for it Rolling Eyes


Hoping to acquire more pieces soon, and make a "super collection" of sorts..

Thanks!
Craig
