Smogbreather, I want you to play. Actually, I would have thought that you being at Tikifarm, that you have made many tiki mugs in the past. I want to see what you have to bring to the table. I want to see what everyone has to bring to the table. I love the mug part of tiki (the best part) and I think that this contest is even better yet.

I think it would be good to see tikifarm to have a contest one day. Tikifarm is a different company and would do things diffent and exciting.

I didn't say you couldn't play, just thought another contest would give us more chances to win! Let's see what you can do!

What? Let the guy who owns the biggest tiki mug production company in the world play?
Only if your kindergarten teacher marked the box next to your name "Plays well with others".

That would be ZAZZ if Holden wants to play. Absolutely!!!

Atomicchick,

It's still too early for actual orders. We don't know any details as to how many we'll make, what size they'll be, etc. Only after the judging is over can we begin to sort those details out.

I think Holden should play too! But wouldn't it be great to hear some of the "dos & don'ts" of mug design from someone who actually produces mugs? (Meaning the physical limitations of mug molds & mug production vs. drawn up designs) So how 'bout it, Holden? Can you spell out some pointers for the rest of us wannabe mug designers before we get deep into it?

I have a question. As we have all witnessed, some of our fav tiki mugs have been inspired by indigenous carvings. My inspiration is being drawn to those influences.

Where do the rules stand regarding borrowing aspects of such carvings of antiquity (not referring to any original works by our TC ohana)? Where do we draw the fine line between ripping off from such works?

Hanford, if you need me to email you the entry I'm about to submit to see where it falls, please do let me know.

Not to answer your question, but a traditional tiki mug in itself is a rip-off.

Unkle reminds me of a hairless zombie mug.

The judging will be based partially on creativity, so the originality of the design will affect it's score. There's no "line" per-se. Keep in mind that the rules do state that he design needs to be yours.

I know that sounds vague but there are so many influences in Tiki that it pretty much is case-by-case.

most great designs can be overcome by creative sculptors! have fun with the designs and I recommend not to limit yourself. Undercuts & negative draft are realities though - don't do designs where the molds can't be pulled off at a 90 degree angle off of the sides (for example, a nose where the tip of the nose has an area underneath it where it recesses upwards... think about it in 90 degree pull terms).

I think one of the Genuine Counterfeit Reloy carvers should post one of their pieces, a`la AA:

AA made one, but its not really one of his designs. But it would make a pretty good mug. Maybe the bottom too heavy.
