Only the kiln gods shall know...

A few lucky peopl etook a Mystery Girl bowl home from Hukilau. We will get as many as is practically possible ready for Oasis and hopefully we'll have a giant pile of Mini Mystery Bowls ready at that time. That depends upon the manufacturer and the speed of that ship carrying them!

THanks for all the compliments at Hukilau on the Girl!

Joanne and Wendy just ordered a total of 5 of the small bowls. We know from the photos and Joanne's description that they are very special. Cheers, Wendy

For that Ebay bowl to sell for $510 seems like a super good deal to me. Amazing work!

Just a quick note on things.

At Hukilau we were expecting to have the first production run of Mini Mystery Bowls within 60 days. But the manufacturer flaked out an dwe are now starting over and trying to find a new manufacturer.

When we have a proof in hand and place the order, we'll have a date to get them in hand.

Everything takes much longer than you think... Maybe by NEXT Hukilau!

It has been a long road... April saw a tree landing on the house and then the manufacturer for the Mini bowl failed us. We have a new start and hope to have good news in a few weeks.

Thanks for continuing to care about this project!

The factory sample arrived! Some tweaks to be done, but, it is real and in our hands! The bowls should be here well before Hukilau. If you want to get one of these as soon as they arrive, click the pre-order button, which just sends us an email for now, or sign up on the home page for the news list.

Thanks for looking.

Oops! Just discovered the news sign-up on the site does nothing! While I figure out how to fix it, if you thought you signed up for news, go here and try again to confirm.

I'm so glad we are on the list for one of these. It looks better than the original version. Good job, Wendy

Well, of course things did NOT go smoothly... Not May, but now July and the bowls are here! This 2 year long ordeal is near the finish line.

However, customs has a hold on the bowls pending their approval of markings and they may want to coem inspect them again here. I hope that we will be free to sell them next week.

Wow. Is this really happening? Did it actually get accomplished? I still have trouble believing it.

Release the bowls! After 3 weeks, US Customs released the bowls! Now they are available for you to buy!

Mini Mai-Kai Mystery Bowl


2 years in the making! Several hundred gray hairs later! My first Tiki drinking vessel! The first Mai-Kai licensed bowl/mug. Part of the profits from the bowl go to the Mai-Kai. They will be in the Mai-Kai gift shop first weekend in August. They are available in Japan through Mookie Sato. Hope to send some to Australia soon.

I hope this is just the first of the "Mai-Kai Memories Series".

Thank you for all the interest and support!
