That looks like so much fun! I dig the Magma Moai! And the Lava Flow's cool too.

I was inspired to dig up my professional restaurant ware Moai mugs that, having never worked with the mold, I always had THOUGHT were also Duncans --until I realized the subtle differences, especially in the nostrils and lips! I am aware this thread is about home-made ceramics, so forgive me if I veer off a little into these Otagiri-made Moai mugs, but the similarities are so uncanny:

We all know these and many other "modernist" BLACK versions:


Fantastic work on the moai mugs guys. one of my all time favorite mug styles. Sven, this old thread has some more info on the moai mugs.

Those are really cool. I especially like the white Duncan Moai with the green drip glaze.

I've always wondered about the Kon Tiki hobbyist mugs (top left first pic) and whether they were truly sculpted and released as hobbyist molds or if someone(s) just cast directly off a Kon Tiki Mug. All the ones I've seen are a bit rough and appear to have lost about half their definition.

Thanks for posting those really cool ad's Sabu!!
Here's Sabu's Ad for the Hawaiian Pig:



And here's the actual Duncan Mold:



I saw this on Ebay.
I usually don't like to quote what people say in their descriptions on Ebay but I thought this seller had a few interesting things to say about this mold. Also, the date and model number at the end.

In the description, the seller states:

"CERAMIC MOLD FOR LUAU PIG FOR H'orderve OR COCKTAIL Picks FOR FRUIT SUCH AS PINEAPPLE CHERRIES AND CHEESES AND SUCH, OR FOR KABOBS. RUMAKI - LIVER AND BACON WITH NUTS, YOU MAKE THE HOLES TO FIT THE PRODUCT.. OR CAN HAVE THE LEGS HOLES COVERED AND MADE INTO A BANK. WEIRD LOOKING PIG, BUT THIS ONE I MADE AND SOLD A LOT OF, I THINK MOLDS HAVE LIFE OF 300, I THINK I MADE ABOUT 30. ALSO CAN BE CUTOUT ON SIDE FOR FLAT UTENSILS AND CANDLES, AND WHATEVER ELSE YOU CAN DREAM UP. MAKES A 13" ELONGATED PIG. 1969 BY DUNCAN 37A ALSO HAS SMALL HAT, I DID NOT USE. USUALLY DID HIM IN HAWAIIAN COLORS."

I thought some of you Luau Pig lovers would like this!!

TabooDan



hehe - I don't think that is a hat in the mold as the seller suggests...I think it is a stopper, or cap for the nose of the piggy



haha! I think you're right.

wonder if that means that he could also be made into a decanter? for RUM, perhaps.....

why else would you want a stopper?

I picked up this hobbyist mug in the wild a couple days ago. Its marked "Irene 69" on the bottom. The glaze is a really nice wood grain with a bright lime green interior. This mug is the exact size of my "The Tikis" black Moai. I noticed that the hobbyist mug (left in photo) and the "Tikis" Moai (right in photo) look exactly like the standard "Fireside-Ft. Atkinson" OMC Moai (center in photo), but are actually just a bit smaller in proportion. As any rate, this hobbyist Moai rocks.
