I messed up. It doesn't hold 36oz. It holds 40oz. It's a Doug Horne mug, so unsurprisingly it's a little on the large size.

We unearthed this vintage photo of Kon Tiki. I went Old-School and made it into a postcard that requires an actual stamp. It must have been taken very close to opening time, as the buildings to the East don't exist yet and the landscaping looks very young. It's the only old image we've come across, ever. The Fish Floats above the door aren't around any more, but not much else has changed in 50 years, other than the trees grew, and it's now in color.

My crate of Kon Tiki Tucson left overs from re-vamping it many moons ago. Scraps of Fijian Tapa and Palm Fronds from the old lamps from 1964! I'll be using this stuff for some very special mug shelves avail on 4/5 for their 50th Bash!

Aloha everyone! I'm stoked to be vending alongside these other great vendors for the Kon-Tiki's big 5-0 celebration! I'd also like to introduce myself, because a lot of you may not know me.
Aloha! I'm Michael Sbicca. I make handmade ceramics and sell my wares under Jungle Modern Ceramics.

Here's a sample of my recent work on TC.
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=41511&forum=18&start=135&149

You can follow my working on pieces for the show on Instagram at Jungle Modern Ceramics.

Here's some finished pieces and ones that I'll be finishing up just in time.

Big Easter Island Moai...17-19" inches tall

Marquesan lamp

Papua New Guinea Lamp


Ku lamp


Lidded coconut jars and mugs


Lidded sets of mid-century modern jars


Lidded tapa jar and Nuka Hiva Booze Barrels.


Marquesan inspired lamp base. In progress.


Easter Island Moai Scorpion bowl. In progress.


I've got some other great pieces that I'll keep posting up until the celebration.

Here's a couple Bob's from The Tonga Hut's, Tiki Bob Show, that I'll have.



PNG decanter.



A couple of Maori inspired tiles that measure 8x12" inches.


I'll also have some more Moai to add to the bunch. I've got a 10" and an 18" tall Moai with woodgrain carving coming out of the kiln tomorrow, along with a Moai scorpion bowl. I'll be sure to post those before the show.

Thanks again for looking and I look forward to seeing you all there!
