The Modernist - Light Brown/Beige - from the Sven Kirsten Kollection - by Tiki Farm

a.k.a. The Modernist Trader Vic's Edition in 3 collections

This is, as the name suggests, a mug based on a very modernist version of a tiki. This tiki once stood outside the Trader Vic's in San Francisco. It has simple tear-drop shaped eyes, a long rectangular nose and a small closed mouth.

This design, like others in partnership from Sven and Tiki Farm, was released in three different glaze colors. The first in a light beige/brown was released December 2nd at Trader Vic's in Emeryville for the first book signing ($125) hosted/produced by Eve Bergeron and Trader Vic's. The second in a light celadon green glaze was released by Tiki Farm through their website December 17th ($75). The third was released in a light yellowish beige/green glaze to be sold by Sven, himself.
