Wow! Great stuff! My favorite is the little blue shot glass!

I see a kiln in one of your pix... do you do your own firing? That's so cool!

Any pix of your tiki carving?

If you have cracks in your bisque, don't throw them away. Fill the cracks with paperclay and refire.

There's also a product called Magic Mender that may fix them

Love what you're doing, Flap!
Drop me a PM when you get a chance - I'd love to add a mug or two to my collection!

hey y'all tiki lovers! sorry for the major delay over here but illness, tiki events and tiki-orders have been a reason for delay to get all this fixed. I definitely will send my stuff around the world 'cause i appreciate it so much that you appreciate my stuff... but it has been too busy... created some tiki hangers just to test it out if this would work out...and i guess it will! So, in three weeks i got the big hollidays off, 2 months that is, and besides goin' on a major trip with my girlfriend to french polynesia, i'm gonna fix all the request 'bout the mugs here as well! See y'all around and many greetings from Belgium!! Mahalo! Flap

as you can see, new ceramic hangers, hollow on the inside so totally not heavy for a hanger!

Cute little fellers Flap. Here in the States we would call those "pendants" instead of "hangers"
