According to my pals at Reyn Spooner, Christmas in Hawaii was celebrated 8 years after Captain James Cook discovered the Hawaiian Islands for the Western World.

The first Hawaii Noel was held in 1786 aboard the British ship Queen Charlotte, as it lay anchored in Waimea Bay, Kauai, the same bay where Captain Cook made his discovery. To treat his crew to a Christmas dinner, Captain George Dixon ordered a pig from the Hawaiian village on shore, had it roasted, and then, in the spirit of the season, concocted Hawaii's first exotic drink my mixing an extra ration of the crew's grog with some coconut juice.

The crew of Queen Charlottes's companion ship, King George, went ashore on Kauai and played Santa Claus, distributing small gifts to the people of Waimea.

Though they knew nothing about the significance of the day, the Hawaiians, with their traditional generousity, rose to the occaision. Chief Tyaana, aboard a long double canoe, visited Captain Nathaniel Portlock, skipper of the King George, bringing him a present of some pigs and vegetables. Captain Portlock returned the gesture, which pleased the Chief very much. It was the first exchange of Christmas gifts in Hawaii.



First introduced in 1983, Reyn Spooner continues the traditon of an annual Hawaiian Christmas shirt. Coveted by collectors and admirers alike, each year's new edition is offered as a Special Limited Edition.





“Hawaiian Christmas 2008” A collage of Christmas past, combined with Reyn's signature Hawaiian Nene Goose.

Each Moai is signed by Mieko and dated as a 2008 Limited Christmas Edition. $20

Yes Indeedy these are legendary often imitated OnaTik Originals.

If you ask any honest Southern California Poly-pop lamp maker they will likely tell you that Ona is Al'ii, and possibly the only reason they now have the knowledge to make lamps at all. While his field of peers has grown in the past several years, few succeed in duplicating Ona's signature simplicity of design.

Far from the hanging electric birthday cakes of his recent imitators Ona's work remains elegant, tasteful and sophisticated.

Ready to hang and plug-in, the smaller colored tapa barrels sell for only $150.00 each, which Augie says is a steal!

In addition to these are a pair of large lamps with some interesting Tiki History. A stunning 'Conga' shaped beauty over 3' long glows warmly wrapped in woven jute with a Samoan tapa print bottom. This lamp along with a vivid tapa 'Drum', pictured above once hung both above the main performance hall at Oasis6 and above the bar in the South Pacific Room at San Diego's Bali Hai. Own either of these handmade giants for only $299.

OnaTiki Barware including pints and Mai Tai glasses as well as tee's for the whole family all bare Doug Hornes distinctive artwork designed exclusively for San Diego's most coveted home bar!!!

"Yeah we tease him a lot cuz we got him on the spot. Welcome back..."

LEGEND OF THE LOST KIRBY

Freaky Boutiki is so excited that Kirby has returned to making fun tiki art!

I remember OnaTiki rattling off a very short list of younger carvers whom he respected and recommended I watch very closely over the next few years. I would meet one of these fellows at Oasis in 2006 and shortly after aquire this wonderful piece from him, then poof...

While Kirby's disappearance and subseqent re-appearence without having aged is, well damn it, THE STUFF OF LEGEND!!!! But his artwork has also eerily endured.

Buy this pre-abduction vintage Kirby now.


mixed media, 25" x 17", 10lbs, signed & dated 2006 $199

When I first started creating Tiki mugs (in the early 90’s) people couldn’t believe I was asking the princely sum of 15 dollars each, this was very frustrating for an artist slowly creating each piece by hand. This is still the case with everything I create. I take a great deal of pride in my work and obviously we hope this is why you choose to buy our work.





BOSKO Santa Moai,ceramic, five glazes I believe.
7.5" of Rapa Nuian dynamite!

Well I hope you saw something cool. At least I hope it was better than that boring Autopia at Disneyland. Heck, I was almost eaten by a snake DURING a mudslide fetching these treasures! (Not really).

To know an artist of such exceptional talent and sound theory, yet sincere humility is truely a great joy.

Mahalo ahead of time for your purchases supporting one of California's most important tiki artists.
