So, I've been to FI once while in town on business and have been looking for a reason to make another appearance...this smells like a reason. I'll be flying in from Phoenix on Saturday night in an attempt to score this fancy-schmancy mug. Are there any hotels within stumbling distance?





what if they are not in walking condition.

Mahalo everyone for your kind words. I will post the number available sometime Saturday afternoon. Please check this post then, so you can plan accordingly. Just hoping I get a good number of survivors out of the kiln...

Gosh that mug is cute. I was trying not to look as my collection is on the way to putting me in the poor house. But DAMN! it's cute.

Well folks, the worst case scenario seems to be unfolding. I only got three mugs out of the 18 from my recent firing at another shop. I have another 12 that are trying to be saved by the generous folks at Leslie Ceramics. If those ones are saved, then these ones that didn't come out can most likely also be saved, just not by Sunday. I will find out tomorrow afternoon if there are more than 3.
I can't even begin to tell you how disappointed(and broke) I am right now. I made some bad decisions and trusted people who had no real interest in making sure these came out. After this whole mess, I won't be making any more mugs until I get my own kiln hooked up and have control over firings. Update and new details tomorrow.
I will commence with heavy drinking now...

After an hour long chat with John Toki of Leslie Ceramics(who by the way told me that Trader Vic used to come in there to buy blue glaze for some of his home ceramic projects) I have a new strategy and new materials for making sure these mugs survive. So, what does that mean to people wanting an FI2 mug? Tomorrow I will unfortunately not have the numbered FI 2 mug for sale. What I will have is 5 of the APs(maybe more, but don't count on it). They aren't perfect, as they have some slight glazing defects that can mostly be picked out only if you hold it very close. I will sell these FI APs ot the first 5 people in line(who want them)for $60. I will also have a couple regular Kapulapu APs for the raffle- tickets will be $2 each. FINALLY, the first twenty people in line can get on the waiting list to purchase a numbered FI 2 Year Kapulapu Mug. I won't be taking money for these, you will be notified when they are ready and you can choose to purchase it then.


To sum up-
1. First five people will have the option to purchase FI 2 AP for $60.
2. First 20 people will get on a waiting list to purchase the FI 2 numbered edition.
3. There will be a raffle(same details that Martin wrote) except there will be two unique glazed regular edition Kapulapu(not FI 2 Year)
4. Sorry for the setback, but you might just forget after a couple of FI's amazing cocktails.
MAHALO FOR ALL OF YOUR UNDERSTANDING!!!

MAHALO to everyone that came out to FI yesterday. Fun, sun, and lots of rum. ALSO a big Mahalo to Jim for handling Martin duties and all the awesome gals mixing up a storm behind the bar.
The FI Edition waiting list is filled and I will start work on fulfilling those orders(and regular edition) as soon as possible.
Some pics...

I heard the dog was first in line, but went to pee on a tree and lost his place.


Regular Edition APs for the raffle- Don't know why we didn't take any photos of the FI APs



WINNERS!



Shortly before the rum took effect.



Stay tuned for more ceramic designs this summer!

Hi all! That's me up there, winning the blue mug with my beloved, who has just registered here as Unkown God. We had an amazing time, and were just sorry that we had to leave so early (darn real life, always getting in the way of our good times!). We met some awesome people, and the mug now is happily ensconced with his brothers on our mug shelf. Now that we're here with all the cool kids, we look forward to meeting more great people at more events!
