An absolutely wonderful, very playful mug sculpted & designed by Daniel Scarcello aka Rainforesttiki. This is our second design by Daniel and personally, though I dig them both, this one is my favorite. “Mele Hoa” features two stylized Tiki-inspired characters with the fellow up top holding a Tiki mask over his face. Perched on top of the lower fellow totem-style, there are dashes of symbology to be found on the mug, though I have no idea what it means… I just love it! Ultimately perched upon an outcropping of foliage and a pedestaled lava, skull-flanked base – it’s super fun and super creative! Glazed in a beautiful, all-new satin green with a gunmetal grey wash, the detailing is very strong and the mug’s detailing shows through so nicely in this glaze combination. Each fellow comes complete with fun little buttocks (so many of you love our more whimsical style and tell me “make more mugs with cute butts”… so here you go) and I particularly dig the splayed, oversized feet on the lower fellow, thinking they would leave some very distinctive footprints in their path.
Mele Hoa is super tall at 11 ½” in height – it will be very commanding on your shelf amongst your other mugs. 23 oz. is the liquid capacity and the price per mug is $28. The total run of this green-beauty is semi-limited at 750 mugs.
