Tiki Kon 2018 Mug- Artist Proof Edition - by VanTiki

a.k.a. Tiki Kon 2018 Mug- AP Edition - by VanTiki in 0 collections

This is a black mug shaped like an anthropomorphized standing volcano.

From VanTiki:

"This December I’m clearing my shelves of all the AP castings that have been collecting dust through the years. Originally meant for glaze testing, these mugs are from long closed editions whose molds have all been destroyed.

The first set out of the kiln are these two Tiki Kon 2018 mugs! I sculpted these as an homage to the Coco Joe’s souvenir castings ubiquitous in Hawaii during the 60’ through the 80’s. I glazed them to match Coco Joe’s signature “made with genuine lava” look, and of course, added Swarovski Crystal eyes!

Why green? Because olivine! Olivine is a naturally occurring gemstone in Hawaii lava flows. Have you ever seen a green sand beach in Hawaii? Olivine crystals give it that green glow!"
