Yikes! I've slipped to page 4! That's what happens when you work away on tiles instead of mugs

So - I did a mug yesterday that will most likely spark a "that's not Tiki!" discussion. I'll admit I was a bit afraid to post it here, and almost tucked it away in the the Grand Ceremonial thread. Let me say right of the bat: it isn't a tiki. It is, in fact, a GIANT bug that will hold a heck of a lot of rum. Flip it on its back (so it can't scurry away), grab a few friends, and start sipping! The Bowl Bug, found lumbering through the dry leaves on VanTiki Island.



I did a time-lapse video of the construction which I'll upload shortly. The Bowl Bug is a piece I've been wanting to try for a while - I may do a few more to explore various options.

Mahalo for peeking!
Henrik "VanTiki"

If it holds rum, it passes in my book.

It's official: VanTiki is heading to Tiki Oasis! The excitement is tempered with a fair amount of panic, as we've got to ship as many artifacts as we can safely from the far off shores of VanTiki Island to San Diego. It is going to be a very busy summer!

To start things off I've been working on a few Trepanning accident mugs. I'd like to have a nice assortment ready for Oasis. I've made some changes to the styling of the mugs - here is the older version:

http://www.vantiki.com/VanTiki/Yojos_Academy.html

And here are the "advances in medical technology" craniums:




In addition to the detailing around the opening, they have three little feet made out of pointy teeth from a large dangerous jungle animal. Can't wait to glaze 'em!

Mahalo for peeking!

Perhaps you are mixing a pitcher-based drink, and are in need of a serving vessel that will both imbibe your spirits with mystical mana and guard your precious beverage from non-believers. Look no further! Allow me to present The Stone Pitcher:




This started out as a mug - but it just kept growing and growing, and when it surpaseed 11" I decided that the stone idol had graduated from Tiki Mug to Tiki Pitcher. Here is a vintage peanut mug for scale reference:



If The Stone Pitcher survives drying and firing, it will be available at Tiki Oasis!
