I think one of the Genuine Counterfeit Reloy carvers should post one of their pieces, a`la AA:
You make the top half the part that holds the drink.
Thanks, Freddie for the nudge! Okay here's my entry then:
It's a tribute to O.A.
So many people have been inspired by Leroy Schmaltz's big tiki photo on page 242 of the BOT, that in the Creating Forum this tiki has earned the moniker "Leroy". Reproductions of it are known as "Reloys". Being an extremely nice guy, Leroy gave us all permission to make our own copies.
My mug entry is not a copy, but an exact opposite/negative of the "Leroy" design. It's called simply "Bob". Not "Tiki Bob", but "Bob" as in "Van Oosting", Leroy's partner.
Note that the mouth isn't open like the carving - just outlined. I really like Freddie's idea, but I don't think it could be made with the mouth open. Besides, it holds more drink this way!
Think of it like the theatrical happy/sad faces. Bob is the yen to Leroy's yang so to speak. Here are some prototype carvings done a while back - "Leroy" is on the left, "Bob" on the right.

Many impressive entries on this thread. Mahalo for letting me take part.

Ok here are my first & second entries
Number one is my homage to the Ren Clark Headhunter mug, its not too
obvious but the head is resting on a bed of wood chips & the top of the mug has axe cuts where it has been severed.
Number two is inspired by one of my paintings, I call this mug "the half drunk sunk"
hope you like em

I like to call him my Techie Tiki, the game boy playing, broken eye glass wearin' nebbish. If he wasn't almost nekkid, he might be wearing a pocket protector. Under his thong (er, in the back where thankfully, we can't see it just now...) he keeps his oh-so-holy I-Pod and Blackberry. Maybe tomorrow he'll move out of his mother's basement, find a girlfriend, or get some well-needed sun. An ugly mug only a mother...and 150 million other nerdlets could love.
So, pour him another grog, kick back, and link up with another Techie Tiki (you can connect each Techie mug with a cord that fits into a little indent in each mug (looks like a 'link cable'), so it looks like he's playing game boy against another Techie mug - just a thought.)

ALERT!! Those with no sense of humor LOOK AWAY!
Anyway, as you can see, this fella looks like he can't hold his liquor. Can't hold his bladder either, cuz he's a genuine....
....Leaky Tiki. A novelty item that will slowly drip your favorite drink all over the bar. Somewhat anatomically correct, this tiki has had his fill, is achin' for relief, and needs to baptize your countertops with....well, you get the picture. Comes with a convenient skull shaped plug when you choose drink rather than drip.

OK, here's my entry, the FlaMoai Bowl!
Here's a rough top view, imagine this with the points rounded off, much like a standard three-sided Tiki bowl crossed with a Boomerang Table:
Here's a side view of the bowl without the Moai to show how I envision the shape to come out (I was able to draw the curves better here):
The top of the Moai's head will have a small declevity to hold the flaming material.
In the original dream where I saw this the depression was deeper & allowed the flame to shine through eye holes, but I don't know how easily eye holes could be cast, and I think people would put too much alcohol into there which could cause fires or crack the piece. Also, I gave the Moai a Shecky mouth 'cause I couldn't think of how to draw a regular Moai mouth, I saw it with both. And in another part of the dream I saw the Bowl separated from the Moai, and the Moai was an insert that you could put in other bowls.
For those of you who may have previously marveled at my lack of picture taking ability, you now see that this lack of ability is exceeded by my lack of ability to draw!

Groggy the Tiki Mug: If you sucked down as many rum drinks as this guy, you'd be sawing logs too (although I don't recommend you get sh**faced, grab a chain saw and start carving a chunk of wood into a tiki - bad idea).
Don't let his name limit the selection of drinks you can sip from his ceramic depths - try blue kool-aid, sangria, or even straight vodka.

Here are my submissions for the contest. The first is "MoaiSkull", a zombie Moai with attitude, my idea was around bringing Tiki back from the dead. My other design is "Monkeybutt" he represents how Tiki turns your life upside down (in a good way). I thought it was fun how the more you tip him right-side up (with beverage) the more you become upside-down (or something like that). Cheers

...nobody laugh...(well if you really feel the need to do so...)
The name of the mug: The Discussion Mug
After a recent wonderful debate about "what is tiki" that involved the entire TC ohana we thought what better way to deal with it than imortalizing it in ceramic and filling the sucker up with strong rum drinks....
The concept: Mug features a two sided face, one more traditional design, the other more modern. The handel will be in the shape of a question mark (?) asking you, the would be drinker, What is todays tiki? It should be painted like segments of bamboo.
Try and get over the poor art and use your imagination (rum drinks help this).

Here are a few that I did a few months ago.
I think that this first one looks good in a satin white but Munktiki's mat green and yellows are also my favorite feel and finish. Ofcousre its whatever look best.
This mug is clean with its simple lines. No extra embellishing line work or "tiki-filler" triangles. Its very much in line with the work of Paul and Stuckie. The idea is an hourglass shape. Ideal for maximum grip

The same take on the one above, just playing with ideas. All images can be tweaked. This one is a chalice for the oh holiest of Tiki Central. Question, How many of you guys want a chalice tiki mug and don't have one. Very few in the world. I don't have one and what better way then (and I believe) Munktiki's first one. Bad photo but same idea with the hourglass but has that wide top. Maybe have some gold luster around the eyes or around the inside top. This could be one of the hottest mug to praise your tiki sanctuary.
I like this one because this little guy is having fun and has been a little slow to shave. Been on TC for too long. The hairs can be inset so not to break off.
