Melvin the Drunken Moai

Every place has one; that guy who has a few drinks too many and dances around with a lampshade on his head. On the sloping shores of Rapa Nui, that guy is Melvin the drunken Moai and he wants to party like its 1399!

Melvin is 7 inches tall and 3 inches in diameter, overall height with his lampshade is 9 inches. Hand sculpted from low fire clay and glazed with food safe glazes, the exterior in rustic orange and the interior in bright neon orange. His removable hat is a candelabra lampshade made of plastic and fabric, a straw will let you imbibe with his lampshade in place. Fairly thick sides give Melvin a good heft. With his lopsided, half-mast gaze, inebriated grin and a 45 degree twist to the left, Melvin looks like he could go down at any minute, but dont worry - your rum is safe with him.

Welp, my wife and I are running behind here now, so I'm posting this up here for everyone to see before I get to the show with the original...and I'll be trying to sell off some prints of it (11X17) while we're there. Hope there's room for it.

Thanks to Grog, Hiphipahula, and everyone else involved in putting on the Moai Madness show tonight at the Tonga Hut. It was a great time with some killer art.

Our new Moai mug by Grog is already fitting in nicely.



Mahalo!

Great seeing some old friends and New Art at the Tonga Hut yesterday.
I don't get out of Palm Springs too much on the weekends so this was a special treat for me.
Great Art,Great Drinks,and what seemed like 40% of tiki central .

Kelly you looked more comfortable behind that bar then I have ever seen you before.....Great job setting the tone.

Grog Great Job setting up the show and lining up some top notch artist.

Awesome!!!!!!!

Thanks everybody who came out and to all the artists who contributed to the show. It was a great time, and the drinks were flowing. Thanks everybody at the Tonga Hut ---Kelly, Jeremy, etc.

Wildsville man, Queen K, and Ray, thanks for making the long trek out from Palm Springs and supporting the artists and the Tonga Hut, and Polypop and others who put some miles on their car to make it to the show. Much appreciated, and great to see you guys.

Thanks Tobor64 fro the YUMMY Kalua pork. That was hilight of night for GROG.

Special thanks from GROG to everybody who bought GROG' crap. Hope you enjoy it.

I really wanted to make it to this, especially as it was one year to the day that I was on Easter Island communing with the Moai at Ranu Raraku (the picture in Tiki Magazine was taken on July 9, 2010). The 405 had other ideas, though. Everyone was rehearsing for the shutdown next week, apparently, and I was forced to abandon the effort. I hope to see some pictures.
