If you could design any tiki mug, what would it look like? Or, do you have an idea for Munktiki, Bosko, Tiki Farm, Tiki Diablo, etc.?

I personally think it would be cool if Munktiki made a skull mug that was bright glossy red and had devil horns (kind of like Bones but instead of bones there were horns, it could be names Horns!). I really had to brainstorm for that name.

A shrunken head with hair would be cool, or a tiki in a hot rod.

Kinda like Politiki, where they make tiki mugs that looked like presidents. I would love to see jazz and swanky personality mugs. Like a Sinatra tiki, Miles Davis tiki, you know, stuff like that. I also love the idea of tiki mugs with extra pockets to put dry ice in. I've seen them in that expensive Spanish mug that was auctioned off on ebay recently. It lets your drink really take on a theatrical aspect. More scorpion & volcano bowls too...nobody seems to be working in that area of tiki mugdom.

My favorite style of mug is the Peanut. Damn face cracks me up everytime. I kinda wish someone would do a new version of that.

How about instead of "Horns" it could be called "Horney Bastard". I like that name better.

I am contemplating a mug design that will look like my logo. What type of clay do I use to create a master?

hey monkeyman, this is purely guessing but couldn't you create a prototype out of plasticine and then make a vinyl mold over it with plaster back up, kind of like to create resin cold casts? then you ought to be able to make a cast with clay within it. but please verify this with folks who have actually made mugs with molds ~ my experience is with resin casting and lost-wax process metal casting.

Atomicchick,

Funny you should mention a bones like skull with horns. Have you been sneaking around our studio at night? Yah I got one coming out in a bout a month, Made it last year but have not got around to release it. Not a straw sipper this time.

To cast ceramics the mold needs to be plaster to absord the water content in the slip, leaving a thin shell of clay when you dump it out.

I am in the final stages of developing a mug that never gets empty.
As soon as I get my medical report about my liver, I shall inform you all if I have the time required time to finish it.

No Pop,

It would look less like a Monkey and more like a tiki (similar to my logo). I did see that mug that Crazy Al had on display at the oasis. Very cool.

I am thinking that my mug will look somewhat like the black meihana mug that the farm recently created. The facial features will stick out away from a cylinder. The fez will be a raised lip in the front with an opening in the back. The tassle will be tied on through a hole in the fez. It would be great if the ears could really stick out from the sides.

One glaze color that I don't see very often is red. It would be really cool to have it a rich dark red. The tassle could be gold or black.
