I'm just amazed that a Marylander was the one with this piece in their collection. Where the hell did you find that Johnny$?

tt: although the bottom rim is not as thickly glazed as the rest of it, slacks is right, it isn't the raw bisque. it's sealed with some sort of coating (it's got a sheen to it), but not thick enough to craze as it is crazed on the rest of the bottom and the sides. weird. but mega mahalos for the offer, i would be proud to own an official tikitanked volcano insert if/when you make them. re: maker of your volcano insert: there are absolutely no markings on mine. however, on page 80 of tikiquest duke sez OMC made them. perhaps his had a sticker.

johntiki: found it in hampden, hon. specifically, hampden junque. as to its provenance, no idear. i'm pretty sure i spent no more than $18 on it, in fact i think it was that. it's a bit more than my limit for a typical mug, but i had a feeling this one was warrented

J$,
Thanks again for the help. I am going to make these for sure, but the question is before the wedding or awhile after. i will let you know, and will send some to you.
I still am interested if anyone knows which places used them, and why. Since there were bowls with volcanos and those without, why use the insert. Hopefully someone can shed some light on this one.
TT

The main reason I can think of for using the insert vs. a volcano bowl is for shelf space. If you use the insert in a regular scorpion bowl, then you need to store (and buy) fewer bowls. And I imagine the scorpion bowls were a bit cheaper than the volcano bowls, so if one broke, you'd pay less for replacement. All a matter of economics.

The inserts were made by Otagiri, so I'm guessing they made them to allow restaurants to be able to server their bowls with fire or without.

The inserts hold a lot more liquid too- here's some photos of us at New Years using one of my inserts....and Isopropyl alcohol. It makes the best and highest flame of anything you can put in there. You'll probably finish the drink before the flame goes out

Thanks. It was a great New Year's Eve party at the Dark Marq Room in TikiCleen and TheDrunkenHat's place.

That's the other cool thing about the inserts- they are so wide at the top that the flame dances around and splits into two flames and then goes back into one- VERY mesmerizing!

So I found a place in the bay area that has three of these inserts for sale. They claim that they came from Tiki Bob's, but I have no way of proving that.

They want 24.95 for each one. Drop me an email and I will let you know where you can find them if you want one for that price.

Someone bought all of them at Time Tunnel, but the owner said she saw reproductions for sale at the La Luz gallery shop in LA.

the piece is double glaze fired. glaze is up top fired and then inverted & stilted (if glazed first, no stilt marks) & brushed and then fired again as the top is now glazed, so no bisque foot showing in my humble opinion.
Alohaz,
Holden
