These are creepily fantastic! Get some geocaching in while you're in Hilo. Always cool to see your new stuff!

So you're on vacation for a few days you say... and these are just sitting all alone in your studio... hmmm... maybe it's time to cash in some frequent flier miles
But in all seriousness never have I seen such a beautiful marriage of macabre and tiki culture.

Aloha Folks!

Welp, as you can see - I've taken my sweet time in getting the zombies glazed. Truth be told, I was putting it off. The sculpt turned out so swell, I was terrigfied that I'd ruin them with a bad glaze application. I must have glazed them in my head a thousand different ways - make them uber-realistic? Matte? Glossy? Lots of blood? No blood? SO many options - the possibilities kept the mugs parked on my bisque shelf for an eternity. Good news is I finally committed to some nice cone 6 glazes - and I am SUPER stoked with the results! Here are the zombies in all their gory glory. I'm posting them in the marketplace as well!








More photos on my site and at the auctions.

Mahalo for peeking!
Henrik

God I need one of these mugs!

I also need to win the lottery so I can buy one of them.

VanTiki please consider payment plans in 2010!

Awesome, awesome sculpts. Hands down (hehe) my favorite.

This zombie mug is a modern classic. Congrats on a stellar achievement.

I've always thought of your work as nothing short of wow!

WOW! That's what I call a Zombie. Makes you thirsty and hungry just looking at them. Like the way you made up the end of the bone. Very cannibal/caveman like. Great piece of art!

You hit the perfect balance. It's a ceramic hat trick - perfect concept, perfect sculpt, perfect glazing

Thank you guys (and gals)! I'm so stoked that you like these fellows as much as I do. They were an emotional roller-coaster - I made the mistake of getting VERY attached to them before the final glaze firing. For me that is a big no-no, as there is always a strong chance that the glaze will turn out wrong, crazed, or pitted - or that your piece will crack or explode. In short - don't count your mugs before they're cooked. I hereby thank the Kiln Gods for letting these guys cook safely!

As you may (or may not) have noticed, I've put a Tiki Oasis countdown timer on the VanTiki site. Yessir! I'm crossing the Pacific this year! Hope to FINALLY get to meet some of you.

Once again, Mahalo!
Henrik
