Wow, I love the new design. I need you to teach me how to make the letters on the bottom of the mug. That looks really good. Wendy

4WDtiki, I have had the photo saved as well for may years. It's so unique compared to so many of the tiki's we see out there. I wish I had done it sooner. Before the Smugglers cove and Sammy Hagar mugs with similar head dresses.

Yes Wendy, I thought I would be more professional and make the bottom digitally. You are not the first to comment on the bottom and wonder how I did it. I just kind of winged it and I'm sure there is an easier way. What we need is a 3D printer to print the design digitally. I think Tiki Farm is moving in that direction. Their new designs are rendered in a 3D program, so I would think they may be using a 3D printer to create the original.
Someday....

I made this in plaster so I can pour a base for all my mugs in the future.



Ready to go under!

Hey MikeyTiki,

This IS the one that is done and selling. Since I've been away from Tiki Central for a bit, I didn't want to overload the thread in one day (and skip the in-progress photos). My next mug should be ready in a week, I'll post some in-progress photos later today or tomorrow.

Here are photos of the finished Kahu Mug!

They are available now on my website. Only $60

That puck worked out great for the bottom. I like the maker's stamp. Very clean, very crisp.

Aloha Tiki friends! Got the first color test of the KALA mugs out of the kiln. Maybe I should call them Vases to be different? Gonna need a straw to drink out of them!

I'm working with the guy who taught me to make mugs, so these will come faster and be less expensive than my typical mugs. The plan is to make 50 mugs over the next two weeks. There will be 10 each of 5 different colors. (plus these color tests and a few customs to come later). These will be available soon, so I've started a waiting list. If you are interested, let me know which color and I'll add you to the list. There will also be a wood-grain version and another color - to be determined. Only $40 each plus $11 shipping for one $12 shipping for two. (Only two of the Black & Tan version left!)
