Paipo, I would love to recreate the OMC Moai glazed look. We will see.
On another note, I am going to end the small list of folks who have reserved a mug. I don't want any future organizational challenges- I am challenged. So, if you have already specifically asked to be on the list, you're still on.
If everyone else could keep a look out in the market section for future release that would be great! Mahalo.

Production of this mug has been plagued with technical difficulties, one mold moderation, and incapacitating hangovers.
I promise the next mug will roll out in a more timely fashion with more molds and some hard earned wisdom to kick it into gear. Thanks to anyone patiently waiting...

Still working on getting some more Kapulapu done, but here is a sneak peek at my newest mug, PALEMBEI - fresh out of the mold.

Obviously influenced by the art found along the Sepik River.

As usual, it will probably be awhile before these get into the marketplace.

You got one out, terrific, looking forward to see your glaze choices. How tall is this mug? It looks pretty large. Hope to see a few handpainted editions.

Lookin' good, Tiki Kaimuki! Nice to see you undertake the distinctive OA style!

I have to echo Cass on a hand-painted version, perhaps with a subtle underglaze!

Great work, Falin!

Sweet looking mug TK. He's obviously PNG in spirit, but has that quirky Poly-pop/cartoony vibe to him. You (and OO/Cass too for that matter) are great at interpreting your source material without aping the original artefacts. Putting it next to the first mug , and even though they're quite different, I can see a distinctive Tiki Kaimuki style developing.

Mahalo, OceaOtica and blacksandz, some detailed underglaze fun is definitely going to be part of the run. Of course, I will be bothering Cass for more tips.
Paipo, I'm glad you see a style forming. It's not conscious, I'm just working within my limitations and trying to make mugs that would make me excited as a collector. I think my next design will fit nicely with these two. Don't tell anyone, but it will be my own version of the skull- we all gotta have one!

Here's a new little shot glass guy I busted out because I had extra plaster when I was making my Palembei mold. No name yet...

I got the first batch of glazed Palembei mugs out of the kiln. Check out the fun flavors. You should see these in the marketplace tomorrow.

Great work TK. The matte looks good, and it seems you got a handle on the dot work.
