Hello Tiki Central and a special hello to my friend Babalu,

So, a few years ago Babalu visited me and told me all about this great Tiki community and I felt inspired to make some work. Life distracted me for a while (for about three years, oops) but I finally got around to it. This is the first group of mugs that I pulled from the kiln this afternoon and I would like to share the results with everyone here.. I know these mugs may not be completely traditional but I had a blast making them and plan to make some more real soon. Ive been inspired!

Howzit Turtle!
Brada, Very Nice!! Your designs are awesome, ya not so traditional but original and different is sometimes even better.. I love your glaze colors that you used, the guy on the left with the big red tongue is too cool and the neon green with the bone... Nice!
Let's see some more pictures!

Aloha

Pure fun. I can see a lot of crazy guys at a party sharing stories and admiring each others mug. Thank you for sharing. I'd certainly look again to see what's next, Wendy

Hey Thanks Everyone! I'm really excited to be on this forum to hear your feedback. Here are a few details of each individual mug. A few of them have handles and are kind of Tiki Steins. The little one is more like a coffee cup, but what the heck. Who says that you can't spike your morning coffee with a bit of rum? Enjoy!



Tiki Steins





Tiki Java Mug



Green Man Tiki



Woodsman Tiki



"Death of a Salesman" Tiki Mug. - this one is a bit of personal reaction to working in a cubicle for the past few years.

oooooh, this is soooo cool!!

Welcome to TC and to tiki sister Turtle! You're going to have lots of fun exploring new things.

I've really missed you, and the old crew! The new mugs look super sharp kiddo.

Everyone around here is going to be so glad to see some thrown and altered work...no one throws around here.

Big YAY!

Babs

Babalu! Great to talk with you buddy! I'm looking forward to future clay talk!

Thanks MadDogMike, I like how the handles are working with the steins so far. I wanted them to look kind of bone or antler like. They can be a bit picky when you fire them but after they make it through the process they are rock solid.

Thanks everyone, looking forward to making more and kicking around here at Tiki Central.

Mugs sculpted and waiting to be smoothed out and dried. I decided to make a set of these using a much darker clay body then I did with the first group. I like the idea of working with both looks in the future.

Wow you've been hard at work. Good job. Those squeeze me toys are so cute and very tiki too. Wendy
