Hi Bongo, If you're talking about something
like this then no, I do not.

The others that I have are a deep burgundy/red and a yellow/white with fuller, rounder petals, though I wasn't planning on having cuttings of either this weekend.

Aloha everybody!

Here are some more pieces I'll have at the event:

This TIki Bob is based on another vintage menu... I love the look of this Bob, so cartoony and two dimensional... which was a challenge trying to render it as a 3D object!


The tapa design on the menu was the inspiration for the design on the event art. Here is the original cut paper art, which will be in the art show!


The Tonga Hut logo was a separate element that I added in later. This original piece will be available at my booth!


Here is some other new pieces... Two platters based on Solomon Islands paddle designs!


Really excited about this event, it's going to be so much fun!

See everybody on Sunday!

Everybody's stuff is looking good. GROG just finish glazing GROG' butt off, and now stuff is in the kiln cooking. We'll see how much crap came out well enough to bring to the show tomorrow when GROG can open the kiln. Had 3 main pieces that GROG wanted to do for the show, that GROG was unable to get done.

The aftermath of the glazing table in the kitchen:

We'll miss you bigbro.

Cracked the kiln lid open, but haven't opened it all the way yet. It's still cooling. Here's what I do have so far that I'm bringing.

And the rest I'm bringing.

A couple of other Bob Bowls


May not sale the Moai Bowl, want to do some glazing on it. but I'm bringing it.


The middle mug is Kirby Bob by Kirby done for the 1st Tiki Bob show made from a Tiki Bob blank (basic Bob shaped mug with no detail) that I had. He had some glaze issues, so I reglazed him. He'll be in the art show. You'll have to talk to Kirby if you want to buy him. The one on the right is Faux Bob also made from a Tiki Bob blank.


S&P's and some more shots.

Well everyone can rest assured that Grog had a complete sell out of his awesome art (or almost... I think there was one piece left?)

And...

WOW!!!!

What a great event!!!

Mucho Mahalos to every one who participated!

Thank you to all the INCREDIBLE vendors who came out to sell their spectacular tiki wares and the artists who contributed work to the art show... CONGRATS to Scott Mabbutt for the win in the art show...

Thank you to Marie King and the TERRIFIC Tonga Hut Crew who kept everyone content and cocktailed-up!
Thank you to the INCREDIBLE Tonga Tom and Sherriyaki for keeping everything on track and flowing smoothly in the vending/art show space!
Thank you to The New Caledonians for rocking the Hut with your MESMERIZING music!
Thank you to all the AMAZING amount of people who came out to support the event!
Thank you to Amy and everyone behind the scenes at Tonga Hut for keeping the OLDEST TIKI ESTABLISHMENT IN THE EPICENTER OF TIKI CULTURE GOING STRONG FOR 55+ YEARS!!!

And a special MAHALO to Manuel for helping to keep me from going completely insane (I only went partially insane)!
