Hello all,

Check out the tiki mugs my daughters designed and later made for me. My daughters designed them around the time I was building my tiki bar. A true Mahalo to their art teacher, Maria Goldwyn, for allowing them to come into school early to make them as a surprise for me. Squid, they'll be begging you for an internship in a few years...

Cheers guys -

dcman

Some of the detail gets lost in the dark glaze. But what you can't see is that they did a solid job of keeping true to their designs. Besides being a damn proud dad, I'm pretty impressed with their ability and motivation.

Cheers - Dan

I just figured one reason why these gals are so talented... We have the same last name!

Cohens rule!!!

Thanks for all the feedback - my 2 girls are pretty thrilled at all the interest in their work!

And yes, Cohens are pretty cool folks.

Aloha -

Great job girls!

I love the "TIKI INSPIRED" concept drawings...the "KaKa I'm a tiki mug" line is youthful naivete at its innocent best!

I bet you girls receive more than one request for handmade mugs from all the TC mug fanatics

Let me be the first to request mugs number three and four

Cheers! Greg

My kids kill me these days (as in make me crack up until my sides hurt), I really think they're cool.

Attached are pictures of my daughter's newest idea, a studio and store where you can make your own tiki mug!

I thought you all might get a kick out of it.

Cheers, dcman
