I'm thinking now that this was a mug prototype from the Tsao dynasty, maybe around the time that candle holder was made. I have one of those mugs. Maybe this was a potential design.

It is very obviously slip cast, not hand built. I'd really like to find this Cindy person. I have a feeling she is the ceramist who created it, not just a hobbyist. It would be unusual for a hobbyist to create a mold for slip casting, unless there was a market for such things. If this was not officially sanctioned by the Kahiki, it would be unlicensed Kahiki merchandise which might have gotten Cindy in trouble.

Too bad we don't know the name of the guy who made the mugs for the
Tsao dynasty.

What? Sure we do. I thought you knew him personally Skip.
Wasn't it Mario Torres?
I don't know how to contact him though.

You've never seen this mug Skip? You're the Kahiki expert here.

I was joking about the Tsao Dynasty as the period of time that the Tsaos ran the Kahiki, as opposed to the Sapp Dynasty. My attempt at art history humor.

No I don't know him.

But you came to the right place for answers.
TC is where tiki lives.
