Thanks for the info, Freddie - I'll check out those repros. Always good to be able to recognize what's new. More than once I've made an amazing vintage ceramic find, only to see the same item two weeks later at Ross.

That sculpt is very cool.

I found this piece the other day. Coco Joe ? or Nogo Joe ? The quality of the cast is really bad and I don't see a mark on it any where. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hola Uncle Trav:

That'd be a Poly Art piece. Here's the lava version of yours and a few other similar pieces:


Most of the Polyart stuff I've seen is unmarked. Occasionally, you'll find one with a sticker on it:



Take care,
Buzzy Out!

I already posted this in Tiki Finds, but I noticed this piece hadn't been posted here before. My first Coco Joe:

Bigbrotiki says:
"Ooooh, nice one, not too common, I just gave Gecko the catalog that had that in it. Pele in her lava bath, holding the cork ball on which to knock the ashes out of your pipe. Beautiful!"
Which made me feel kind of warm and fuzzy inside

I made a couple of nice CCJ finds today:

Menehunes playing uke and reclining:



Tiki boat ashtray/cupholder. This had the 3 sake cups in it when I bought it, but I'm sure that's not what was in it originally. Anybody know what was really supposed to go in it (other than your dead ciggy butts)?

Here's a variation of your #257: Ipo the Lover Boy

Here they are side by side


This is the one I see most often:


Here's the variation that I almost passed on because I thought I already had it:


He has the same head as #219 He-Haku Ka-Ao: the teller of tales


A flower was added to the side of the head on the Ipo version

Bottom:


The Royal Canoe came with jelly:



Buzzy Out!

Buzzy, thanks for the info. My Ipo figurine is missing the sticker on the back. I'm guessing that the canoe's previous owner finished off the jelly and since he/she was a non-smoker, stuck the sake cups in it instead of using it as an ashtray.

Outstanding work Lava Detective Buzzy! One less question off Da books. That old sales catalog is Tits(TotallyIsTheShit)


BrandoMoai...Awesome ashtray...that ones still on the wish list, mahalo for posting.


Detective Buzzy, More Poly-art babies for your case files...





Those Blue Hawaiian Sculptures were won ebay a few years ago and I'm not sure if the seller tried to clean them with some kind of solvent or citrus based cleaner, because they are still a little tacky to the touch. The bottoms of the pieces are dry and hard. To make matters worse, the seller had wrapped the pair individually in toilet paper first when packing. I was happy to get them, until I unwrapped the box and dug to the bottom to find two mummy looking creatures. I took off the unstuck paper and had to moisten the remainder and use tweesers for most of the balance. Still some left.




Is this the Holy Grail to the Schirman/Poly-Art Cross Over...?




DUUNT DUUNT DUUNNNNN

Freddie

I didn't see this in the Coco Joe's cannon so I thought I'd chime in, it's from a paperback touristy book titled All About Hawaii. It sure would make a great full sized poster.

Wow, those water sculptures are great, never heard of THAT concept. Those Hawaiian tourist art makers sure were magicians: They could turn mere plastic into wood or into lava, and now: Water!

Has anyone ever heard anything about the formula they based their Made with Lava claims on, like how many sprinkles of ground lava they added to a vat of molten black plastic to make it "Legends in Lava"...and did they actually ad wood shavings to create "Hapa Wood"?

The text of that magazine art is great, too!
