OK, finally getting back here to post an update'
I guess the first would be the event mug for the CATT event,Chicago Area Tiki Tour.
Here's the Event mug
We also did two mugs for their raffle.
The first was based on our "Tourist Mug" style of glazing.
The second was our homage to the Luau 400, we called it the "Luau CATT"
We also did a "Special Request" version of the mug.
Another Ku style was next.
Then we finally got our version of a Marquesas style mug finished.
The next one we had hanging around for a long time was our Tangaroa style. We did a large handled version.
We've also done a very few large ones without a handle. I stuck the can in the pic for scale.
Our regular "Tang Head" version.
Somewhere along the way I tried another glaze on our bamboo mugs and really like what we got.
I about forgot. We did our Moai in orange for our friends at Zen Tiki Lounge. He ended up being named "Big Richard", so here he is.
We also did it in a mod blue for Kelly at Velveteen Lounge Kitsch-en.
While we're talking about our Moai there was one more different guy we tried.
Thanks to Squid, who gave the Kahanui chapter of the FOM permission to use his "Snowy Moai" artwork as their logo, what resulted was their "Snowy Moai" chapter mug. It's done in their chapter orange.
One of our newest pieces is our "Hei Tiki Head"
This was done with a face on both the front and back of the mug.
The tongue and teeth are glaze as well as the rest of the mug except for the eyes. To simulate the sealing wax which was originally used we pour the eyes in resin as the last step in the making of this mug.
The very latest piece we are just starting to get out is our version of a New Caledonia post carving. This one was on the shelf a long time too, but we are finally getting them going. They will all be different and this first one has shades of PMP on it.
This bowl also has a face on both the front and back.
One last family photo. I wanted to finally put a complete set of our "tourist mugs" together for a group photo so I've include that.
This is all for now, thank you.
