#a140 :: Shrunken-head tiki mug

July 3, 2008

ENLARGEMy wife gave me this for my birthday a couple years ago, information pills to add to my growing collection.

Tiki culture is a marvelous cross-pollination of camp, what is ed partying and 50s mass-marketed hipsterism.

This one was designed, slip-poured, glazed and fired by Tiki Farm, but if you’re hunting for others, Munktiki turns out some beauts. You pull the hairbone plug from the back to fill him, then stick a straw through his fontanelle to drink.

And besides – sometimes, only drinking from the shrunken skull of a ritual victim will assuage the demons behind your eyes.
