From Trader Jak's (Jacob King):
Trader Jak's First Ever Mug! And it has a cool story!
In 2017, my wife wanted to surprise me with mai very own tiki mug... one that resembled me. So she got in touch with world renowned Tahiti Gil and he graced my wife with a sketch of my very own tiki... 'Mai Tiki.'
Unfortunately, it proved too difficult to have sculpted by a pro, so she tried to do it herself. I thought her attempt was cool, but she threw it in the trash. :( 5 years later, I came across Gil's sketch and took matters in to my own hands.
With the help of ADR Studios and some additional sketches by yours truly, we had a 3D model. After printing a couple of prototypes, I was able to get the sample in the hands of Ron House at House of Modern Antiquities where he put his ceramic skills to work and came up with some GORGEOUS glaze options.
THIS MUG IS LIMITED TO 50 PIECES IN THE BLUE GLAZE!
#1-50 WILL HAVE THE BLUE GLAZE SHOWN HERE. #51-100 GLAZE TBD. #101-150 GLAZE TBD. MAX OF 150 WILL BE MADE, BASED ON DEMAND.
NO ADDITIONAL RUNS BEYOND 150.
These are all hand made in America by House of Modern Antiquities, and quality control will be enforced. Every mug individually inspected. With that said, these are hand made, no two glazes will be exactly alike. Small imperfections in finish/detail are to be expected within normal limits."
