I'm guessing there are a lot of creative types here who are itching to design a mug, myself included. I know that there is a push for a Basement Kahuna mug on another thread, and there are a few more I would like to see signature mugs from, namely Benzart and Sam Gambino.

Who else would you like to seemake the A-list for the next great mug design? Yes you can nominate youself.

Since I don't qualify for the "A" list, I would like to be first on the "B" list. Indeed I am interested but have no idea where to start. I have a concept mug idea already sketched

MMan,

Having a sketch puts you ahead of the pack. Definate a-list material.

You guys ought to design some more tiki bowls too for consuming mass quantities around a table. Theres not enough bowls...something like 3 or 4 black moai supporting a huge black lava type bowl with the inside a orangish-red glaze with a place to put something flaming in...oh yeah and some portholes to hold the straws in place. that way you can put your straw down and you wont lose it. ok? ok. Thanks.

Yes, we do need more bowls. And not just the bowls for the large drinks, but for everyday breakfast use.

I start many of my mornings with a bowl of cereal, and I think it would be fun to start the day right by eating out of a tiki-themed cereal bowl. And then, many hours later, I could end the day by mixing a drink and it drinking out of a tiki-themed volcano bowl.

If I start the day with tiki, and end the day with tiki, then it might be easier to feel tiki in all the hours in-between.

I like tiki riders idea! Make it a theme bowl, Moai or such and get three people to do drawings then go from there. Octane, Benzart, others. WHO'S IN?

Thanks for the nomination, Raffertiki. I wouldn't mind being on the "B-List" even with a shrunken head mug - I could be the "Ed Wood" of mug designers! (Without the angora sweater though).

The first example of my mug done with Saint Thomas should be ready for Hukilau so you can pre-order. I can't call myself a designer, more of an idea man. Saint Thomas is making it into a reality. I am also urging him to create a volcano bowl for one which is coming along.

Well okay, maybe a powder blue one - but NEVER pink! Pink clashes with my skin tone.
