Here's the history and legacy of building a tiki mug all the way out to a good pour and some greenware. Please note that the handle looks like a deformed growth...

I carved this from wax it actually has design's all around it but I only took a couple of pix. one is of the front the other's are of the handle.







The molds empty and ready to be poured.


Molds filled with slip.


The big mold draining (the handle doesn't get poured out--it stays solid).)


Before the collar is removed.


After the collar is removed.


Molds open and drying.





Finally! A good pour! This mug looks upset, maybe he knows I killed his two older brothers.

I'm gonna try my hand at this someday - why such a deep box? Is it just what you had around, or is there a technical reason for that?

Here are some picture's of the actual mold and a crucial error.
Remember folk's wax and heat don't mix unless you want them to.

I like seeing the inside of the mold with the face on the mug there. Where did the heat come from that you are talking about.

I think the handle should be cut a little at the top before attached, to angle and shorten the distance the handle is away from the mug. Try one and see if it looks better. Otherwise good for you making and baking.

Thank's tekey, This has truly been a trial and ERROR, venture I was thinkig the same thing,this thing will probably hold up to 16 or 18 oz's of some refreshing beverage???? I put the thumb mount to assure proper leverage. Some thing's just arn't worth spillin'.

Keep up the good work. It gets ugly for a while but keep the faith. Turn some out and maybe we'll work a trade. What do you think?

Tfisher, I actually love the Melted mug. Looks like you are learning the process too and you will have a neat mug when you get it right. Keep workin at it.
