Bosko, as an old friend of Jeff's and an artist who has done many diorama pieces, fabricated all the sculpts and environments for Beachbum Berry's book covers. The miniature Beachbum Berry mug he did for Taboo Table of his own mug design is one my faves. I just light and photograph them, I did that for three of the four covers.
Addendum: The fantastic Labor-of-love intensive dioramas INSIDE Jeff's "Remixed", I have to add, are sculpted, assembled and lit by another true lover of Tiki, the talented Cass of Oceatica!

Yeah, I've seen Cass' behind the scenes of the shoots, and sculpts. He's a great guy, and I keep bugging the hell out of him to make mugs again, but he's a busy busy man.

Thanks for sharing a look inside you home Sven. Looks like the perfect spot to escape from the worries of the outside world. Relax, recharge and imbibe. Just amazing.Thanks agian.

Thanks Trav, did you see the Vimeo video on page 1 ?
While still on the subject of my lamp collection, here is another one of my faves (which I have shown somewhere else here before):
The beachcomber jug lamp I bought at O.A. in the 90s:
The bottom of the bottle was cut out, and the inside sprayed matte, to hide the bare bulb and make the bottle glow. The drift wood on top got some clear adhesive on it, and got sand thrown on it, for that fresh beachcombed look. Those are the loving details I appreciate!
The only concept cooler than that was O.A.'s "Nautical sea life" version, in a non-matte bottle:
The only examples of this cool concept I have seen in situ were at the Royal Hawaiian in Laguna Beach, now gone.

Sven I love those lamps, and now I need to make one.
Thank you so much for posting them.

It's so well done, and retains the light-colored ceilings. Kudos!

Sven, while watching your video I noticed your gope board @ the 1.22 mark. It reminds me of the one I have.. What is the story behind yours? And can you give me an idea as to where mine could be from?

Among the many things I envy in the remarkable treasure-chest that Sven calls "home" are his drool-worthy collection of Witco -- of which I own precisely none -- and his delightful collection of Spanish tiki mugs -- of which I own precisely ONE, due only to Sven's warm generosity. (It was an unexpected gift.) But good luck trying to find any of those babies on eBay!
