It would look less like a Monkey and more like a tiki (similar to my logo).

I always wanted one of the feathered god in King Kamehameha's hand in a red glaze, but how would you render the pompador do?

Here is a part of the mail I sent to Holden......."Anyways, hey I have what I believe could be a killer mug idea, well at least I THINK it would, so I come to you O' Rock Star of Mugs for your opinion, ready "FEZ MONKEY MUG" tell me it would not be cool, or tell me it would not?"

and Holdens reply "Fez Monkey Mug is... coming this summer! I kid you not!!! He's already sculpted & I received my 1st glazed samples last week. No BS - absolute truth!"
Needless to say I was somewhat crushed, but what are you to do.
Would love to see Tiki Diablo do a monsta size mug "TIKI KONG MUG" holding about 30oz. but this monkey would not have a fez, too bad of a dude for that. But somehow I would love to have a artist challenge get Stuckie, Pizz, Squid, Shag and others to do a Fez Monkey Mug series, imagine the variety in styles but doing the same theme.

I am no expert but the reason we do not see much "red" is because it is difficult to do and more expensive.




I seem to remember Holden saying the red glaze was difficult on the wahaku warrior mug.

It's difficult to do red (and sometimes orange) glazes and get them right. I believe that red glazes must be fired at a different temperature than the other colors. In my experience (8th grade ceramics class) anything I tried to glaze in red ended up brown or clear.

Oh lord, the old red/ orange problem again.

Here are the following ways they can be produced:
Cadmium, Lead+chrome, uranium, copper (under the right conditions.)

The first three will mess you up good! The latter is difficult and tempermental. For earthenware (eg. much, but not all, cast barware) there exist some pretty reliable commercial cadmium glazes which won't kill you. At porcelain (diinerware, whiteware, stoneware) temperatures, you can forget it. At least for the red. You can get purpleish red, or orangeish red without doing the copper thing I mentioned. However, a certain company has just developed a new fire-engine-red high temp glaze which is supposed to be non-toxic. I'd be interested to try it out, but it's not yet on the market.

I have been working on a glow-in-the-dark glaze, and have faith that it will soon be working well. Any thoughts on that? You could find your drink if the lights went out...

By the way, what is everyone's thoughts on tiki sake bottles/ cups? how about Teapots? What other sort of useful kitchen things are sorely missing in the tiki world?

I'm a little iffy on the sake thing but wanted other opinions....

I'd make a clear glass mug with an Angry Tiki face on one side and a Happy Tiki face on the other. God, that would be SO cool.

I would love to see jazz and swanky personality mugs....I also love the idea of tiki mugs with extra pockets to put dry ice in....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.

I would like to volcano bowl where the part that holds the 151 rum can be removed to become a shot glass, and at the bottom have tiki totum poles holding up the bowl as a stand where the bowl itself can be removed..

Holy Moly People!

We have so many things in the works it's mind boggling! It's great to see the suggestions here since it coincides with projects that have already been under way and in development!

OOPS! Did I say too much???

I'd like to see a neo-Paul Gauguin Self-Portrait mug.

How about a mug shaped like a little tiki bar?
