    "This mug has classical tiki elements as well as Florida flair. The front tiki design is inspired by Treasure Craft ceramics of the 50’s, while the Pelican and dock pilings are an homage to St. Pete."

    June 9th to July 4th 2021 marked Intermezzo's Pop-Up event to transform their location into the Aloha Room. This mug was timed for release on June 16th to help celebrate that Pop-Up event.

    This is a three-piece mug set that when grouped together forms a castle very similar to Castle Grayskull from the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe story franchise.

    He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is an American animated television series produced by Filmation based on Mattel's toy line Masters of the Universe. The show, often referred to as simply He-Man, was one of the most popular animated shows of the 1980s. The franchise has since spawned a huge cult following and resulted in further toys, collectibles, television series, a film, annual convention and much more. Castle Grayskull is a fortress located on the fictional planet Eternia and was a pivotal part of the franchise, having been issued as a playset in the 1980s and serving as a great topic of mystery and machinations in the extended storyline.

    Hale Pukaua MOTU is perhaps from an alternate reality where Castle Grayskull was turned into a tiki bar. Some subtle tiki elements decorate the castle, such as a glass fish float in the eye and hibiscus flowers around the ram skull on reverse. It also features the STARR TIKI logo on the reverse. The three mugs included in this set fit together together for display but do not actually interlock. The left and right mugs have indents that allow the center mug to sit into place.

    This mug set design is STARR TIKI's first foray into the mug manufacturing world. Designed and produced by Jesse Starr. It was designed as a pre-order of 150 pieces on July 12th, 2020 for the green First Edition and orders began their first delivery in December 2020.

    This Second Edition has two color variants: "Awakening" (Blue & Purple) and "Under Seige" (Gold & Purple).

    This mug features a brown standing tiki carrying a woman in a dress. The mug was designed by Tiki Shark (Brad Parker) and manufactured by Munktiki Imports. It comes in two glaze variations, including one where the woman is wearing a red dress and one where she is wearing a black dress. The back features a skull with a "15", bones, and tropical leaves.

    The mug was based on one of Tiki Shark's most admired paintings, "Forbidden Island" which in turn was based on the classic 1956 science fiction film, "Forbidden Planet". The tiki is meant to resemble the 1956 film poster's Robbie the Robot and the hula girl resembles the unconscious woman he is holding.

    *NOTE: These mugs were cast in two pieces (the main tiki as one piece and the arms of the tiki and the woman as a second piece) and then glued together after having been cast and fired. In some cases the glue did not hold, in which case Forbidden Island offered to replace the mugs, but in most cases all that was required was re-gluing the two pieces back together with a stronger glue such as Liquid Nails.

    This is a mug shaped like Jon Snow.

    Jon Snow is one of the main characters from the Game of Thrones books and HBO television series adaptation. He is presented at the beginning of the story as the bastard son of Ned Stark, lord of House Stark. As a bastard, he takes the name Snow (a pseudonym for all bastards). However, Jon is actually the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen, the late Prince of Dragonstone. From infancy, Jon is raised alongside Ned's lawful children at Winterfell. Jon's true parentage is kept secret from everyone, including Jon himself, in order to protect him from those that sought the complete annihilation of House Targaryen. He is sent to the far North to stand on the wall and be a Warden (guarding against the thought-to-be mythical Night King and more tangible threats like the human "Wildings" just beyond the wall) but events conspire to make him a leader of the Wardens, and later a lover to Daenerys (who with the discovery of his true lineage is revealed to technically be his aunt). For much of the television series, Jon was a clear favorite and many hoped to see him finally take the throne.

    This is a mug shaped like the Night King.

    The Night King is a major villain from the Game of Thrones novels and HBO television adaptation of the same name. The Night King is an icy zombie like figure with blue eyes who has the power to resurrect the dead and has used that power to amass an army with which he intends to take over the world until everything is dead and covered in ice. His origins are shrouded in mystery but it is shown in the HBO series that he was once a man and was transformed into a "White Walker" by the Children of the Forest (an early race of creatures both plant and elf-like) in order to create a protector against encroaching mankind. They never intended the White Walkers to get so out of hand, however, and it is apparent that they were a weapon of last resort gone awry. As the first of the White Walkers, the Night King functions in the story as the most powerful villain (in a series with many villains to root against), akin to Dracula at the head of a vampire army but in this case...ice zombies!

    This mug is shaped like Daenerys Targaryen holding a dragon egg.

    Daenerys is one of the main characters in the Game of Thrones book series and HBO television adaptation of the same name. In the story, Daenerys is in her early teens living in exile in Essos. She remains dependent on her abusive older brother, Viserys, and is forced to marry Dothraki horselord Khal Drogo in exchange for an army for Viserys, who wishes to return to Westeros and recapture the Iron Throne. Daenerys adapts to life with the Dothraki, and her character emerges as strong, confident and courageous. She becomes the heir of the Targaryen dynasty after her brother's murder and plans to reclaim the Iron Throne herself, seeing it as her birthright. A pregnant Daenerys loses her husband and child, but soon helps to hatch three dragons from their eggs. The dragons provide her with a tactical advantage and prestige. She also acquires an army and sets out, determined to end slavery and injustice. Despite her strong moral compass, she deals ruthlessly with her enemies, particularly slave masters, and eventually succumbs to the inherited Targaryen madness which turns her quickly from a potential queen of the Iron Throne into a villain who is eventually destroyed -- paving the way for a more benevolent ruler.

    This is one in a series of Game of Thrones ceramic mugs. Many of these same designs were also produced as plastic mugs with straws and lids.

    "This mug was designed by California artist Shag. It’s based on an Andres Bumatay carving that can be found inside Max’s South Seas. The carving’s original home was the Village Apartments, Playa del Rey, CA, a Polynesian-themed apartment complex. Luckily, it was salvaged by collector Jordan Reichek when the apartment complex was torn down.

    This carving is now mounted on the A-frame back bar inside Max’s (see photo.)

    In our Grand Rapids ceramic studio, Max’s has produced 25 mugs in this Rainbow glaze color. Each mug is numbered on the bottom and includes a numbered certificate of authenticity.

    More info about the Village Apartments:

    Located in a surprisingly welcomed proximity just over 3200 feet from the North tarmac of the Los Angeles Airport, The Polynesian Village Apartment complex was the epitome of primitive, space-age bachelor pad living for 1962. Designed again by prolific mid-century architects, Armet & Davis, the immersive environment featured a stylishly themed atmosphere, complete with 24/7 flaming gas Tiki torches and cascading lava rock waterfalls. Made in a series of three sister developments across Los Angeles county, the dingbat cubist apartment structures were adorned with redwood carvings by the renowned sculptor team of Andres Bumatay and Richard Ellis. Astonishingly, no two figures are alike and the contemporary free form nature of these rescued artifacts endure as the quintessential definition of 'Tiki-Modern'."

    This Pau Meli design was produced in three different glazes and quantities of each: Avocado & Orange (200), a Leopard glaze (100), and a Rainbow glaze (25).

    More info about the Village Apartments:

    Located in a surprisingly welcomed proximity just over 3200 feet from the North tarmac of the Los Angeles Airport, The Polynesian Village Apartment complex was the epitome of primitive, space-age bachelor pad living for 1962. Designed again by prolific mid-century architects, Armet & Davis, the immersive environment featured a stylishly themed atmosphere, complete with 24/7 flaming gas Tiki torches and cascading lava rock waterfalls. Made in a series of three sister developments across Los Angeles county, the dingbat cubist apartment structures were adorned with redwood carvings by the renowned sculptor team of Andres Bumatay and Richard Ellis. Astonishingly, no two figures are alike and the contemporary free form nature of these rescued artifacts endure as the quintessential definition of 'Tiki-Modern'."

    This Pau Meli design was produced in three different glazes and quantities of each: Avocado & Orange (200), a Leopard glaze (100), and a Rainbow glaze (25).

    From Max's website:

    "This mug was designed by California artist Shag. It’s based on an Andres Bumatay carving that can be found inside Max’s South Seas. The carving’s original home was the Village Apartments, Playa del Rey, CA, a Polynesian-themed apartment complex. Luckily, it was salvaged by collector Jordan Reichek when the apartment complex was torn down.
