Man! The art for this show looks fantastic!
Kudos to Grog and the bunch for the excellent idea/curation for this show.
So glad to see Grog sharing some of his amazing talent with us all (other than his talent for derailing threads)
I don't know if there has ever been such a hands-on, one-of-a-kind showing of mugs and ceramic pieces!

MUGS FOR THE PEPOLE, BY THE PEOPLE!!!!

RIGHT ON MY TIKI BROTHA!

VERY talented line-up! Thanks everyone for posting all the great photos.

Bai, I am especially in awe of your talent-how the hell did you make the 2-D to 3-D transition look so easy??!!
I covet your Peanut Bob. . . .

I know this will a stellar evening of art, friends, song and booze!
Hope everyone has a fabulous time!

I will be in Vegas, but I will be with you in spirit (or should I say Spirits?)

Sorry, we'll miss you at the show, Suze, but maybe we can get Courtney and Johnny Pinstriper to show up, and we'll have another cute blonde to take your place.

Yes, it's going to be a really nice show----GROG think we should make a hand-built art show an annual event like the Tiki Wonderland show.

Glad ya'll are liking GROG' crap. GROG blasted those Moais out really quickly and with as little effort as possible to try and keep them as cheap as possible---time is money. The more time and effort it takes to make something, the more it's going to cost. A GROG product is cheaper than an Ernie product, because you can expect lower quality primitive art from a caveman, than from a professional artist. These are marked on the bottom with GROG as the artist. The Bamboo Ben mug was designed by Ernie.

Johnny is certainly not my idea of a cute blonde, but he is lovable.

I'm sorry to say that we'll probably miss this event since we're going to Leonard Cohen. Maybe we try and make it there afterwards

Well, at least you're not missing the show for a SURFBAND.

If you can't make it to this show or the Tiki Mug Book signing at 8 Ball on April5 , there's always:

Stop dropping tikis on your foot, and you should be able to make it out to more places and events.

A couple of artists from farther away may have a few items as well at the show April 11. MadDogMike might be able to make the long haul, and Mikel (MP) will be heading down from up north and should have a few hand-built goodies. They have to fill in for Cass who's just too damn busy working to get anything finished for us.

GROG - don't worry, kiln will fire fine when I get back... I'm across the pond right now and joining in on all the protest action going on... The problem is, I have no clue what i'm protesting about?

Anyways, loads of fun - see ya in a few days.

Thanks Grog for squeezing me into the show... I don't have any mugs, but I've been working on some drawings on black paper...
