Thanks For Looking! Just in case you didn't! Check out Our latest work, It's called: "Dani's Deep Sea Rum Barrel" This Ceramic sculpt and glaze, Has 20 diiferent color glazes by Dani and Gogo, And Is one of my best art, I think! Of to date for me, It took me a good 4 hours to do the sculpting and a good 4 hours for Dani and Me to glaze, 4 hours Kiln time and Bam! We got a 1/2 rum barrel, 56oz of joy!







































I'm not going to make this a production item, It can't be molded and mass produced, But I would be willing to make a serious Tiki collector one, From scratch, Price would be about $150.00 plus shipping cost. There is a good 12-15 hours involved in making this. What You Think? Mahalo Gogo

I think your price is way too low. Considering what a nice AP mug or a handmade bowl goes for, and the complexity and originality of this piece (it is flat-out awesome), I think you're selling yourself very short. It would still be a steal at $250. I bet you've got a slew of PMs headed your way!

Awesome! I think you're too cheap, too. I'd go up a bit!

That's friggin' awesome. That would hold a drink to put you and 10 of your friends under the table. Great vintage look.

Yea, that's frickin sweet as hell!

Agree also that your price is too low for handmade like that. That's passion and passion should be rewarded... with praise and money.

Really nice work and great creativity!

Thanks all of you TC'ers for the kind feedback, My price is low for sure, As is with all the ceramics I make, Making ceramics is like a labor of love for me, I don't make ceramics for a living, Or to make a bunch of money, I just break about even, I have a 40 hour plus job! Which keeps me very busy, I just want to share my art with people who share the same passions as me, I collect Tiki mugs too! The reward for me is not the money, It's to see people Enjoy my work, The smile on a face and the Thank You! is priceless, Mahalo! Gogo

GO TIKI makes FUN ceramics and anyone who has collected a piece or two can tell you, these are very well made. Alot of whimsy for sure and not for everyones taste...but Go-Go has it going, slinging the mud, keeping tiki real, affordable and a TON of FUN!

Deep Sea Rum Barrel is a mutiny waiting to happen!!!

It's gorgeous.
I can't afford $150.
It's definitely worth much much more.
It's absolutely stunning.
I would be afraid to drink out of it for fear that I would get too tipsy and drop it on the floor when going for a second round.
