It seems like a while since we've posted out here, seems we always end up spending our time in the studio working on stuff. However, since Hanford was kind enough to build this new space, we thought it would be good to take this opportunity to post some pics of our past and current stuff.

When we first got hooked on the Tiki, we did a few carvings but then moved into making mugs (the journey can be seen
here.

But for brevity, I thought I'd start by posting some of our older designs....

P-1 Volcano Mug


P-2 Tourist Cup


P-3 Tiki Bub


P-4 Tourist Bucket Mug


P-5 Volcano Bowl (This was a design we've had for a while, but finally just got it into production this year)


C-1 Biter Mug (collaboration with GMAN)


E-1 Fraternal Order of Moai Hot Rod Hula Hop 4 Event Mug


And here’s some of our newer stuff:

P-6 One-Ring Bamboo


P-7 Two-Ring Bamboo


P-8 Three-Ring Bamboo


P-9 PopTiki Logo Mug


P-15 Tourist Bowl

Indeed, you are using the spirit of both, traditional Oceanic art and mid-century Polynesian pop, and are creating unique and new designs with this tradition in mind! Not all modern "Tiki" artists know how to do that. My compliments!

Yep, the Deluxe is swell.

I really dig the bamboo mugs (which I missed before). They have a nice Golden Age elegance to them, it's an aspect of Tiki that's often overlooked.

First off, let me just say thank you to all of your for your kind words. We really appreciate that people understand our work, and like what we're doing.

When we're sitting around the studio discussing new designs, we're always aiming to make mugs that look as though they could have been used it one of the great Tiki temples of yore. Many times as Pop is working on a sculpt, he'll ask us..."Does that look like an old mug?" It's an aesthetic we've always loved, and are glad that people see that in our work.

To share a bit more, here's some pics of some of our one-offs and test proofs we've done recently.

First off is the first picture of our P-10 Little Bub that just came out of the kiln this week.


We're retiring the production style P-3 Tiki Bubs, but we still wanted to make the same design, so we shrunk it a bit to fit in your hand better. The one on the right is the P-16 Bitsy Bub that we're planing on having for next year.

And here is a few pictures of different glazes we tried on our Ku mug before settling on the one we chose.




And finally, a alternate version of our logo mug:


When I get a chance (probably after the Hukilau ), I'll try to dig back some more and find some more pictures of some of the older mug variations we did, and some of the carvings/non-mug stuff we did early on as well.

Thanks again for looking!

Helz

Now THAT is beautiful!

Excellent one offs!
It's always fun to see those..
Like looking at an artist's rough sketches and thumbnails...
you can see a bit of the brain behind the mug...
You kids have truly captured that aesthetic of the old time mugs of yore...
