Pele Decanter - Open Edition - Black Lava Glaze - by Sven Kirsten

a.k.a. Power of Pele Decanter 2nd Edition in 3 collections

This is decanter shaped like a female tiki and with a cork topper shaped like a flame.

From Tiki Farm:

"Sven Kirsten designed this lava-textured example of female power. Inspired by a wooden statue that was located at the defunct 'The Tikis' theme park, it translates to the Pele rising from the erupting lava flow. He published a photograph of this particular tiki in the Book of Tiki, page 187. He and Tiki Farm are delighted to offer this open edition for everyone to enjoy. It measures 14 1/4 inches to the tip-top of its red flame topper. Sven describes this piece being an 'object of desire' and a highly-stylized mid-century Tiki art at its best!"

Sven Kirsten released a limited edition in purple on his personal web store, True Tiki, before the release of this open edition in black by Tiki Farm.

    This is decanter shaped like a female tiki and with a cork topper shaped like a flame.

    From True Tiki, Sven Kirsten's online store:

    "This is the first edition of this decanter, limited to 95 pieces in this color. A gnarly, lava-textured example of female power, it was inspired by a wooden statue I collected at the defunct 'The Tikis' theme park. It was published in the Book of Tiki, and I am glad that I can now offer it for everyone to enjoy. It measures 14 inches to the the tip of its securely sitting flame topper. This ceramic "object of desire" is highly stylized mid-century Tiki art at its best!"

    Tiki Farm followed up on their site with an open edition of this design in black.
