A while back we asked artist Becky Cloonan to come up with a design for our Tiki Mugs, and our only request was "something with a Grim Reaper."
She delivered – big time. And earlier this year we introduced the Splendor & Riches Designer Series Tiki Mug. Resembling something like a cross between a Catholic prayer candle and something from the Sedlec Ossuary, it was sculpted by Tufan Sezer and Mike Bonanno and produced by our friends at Tiki Farm. The mug stands approx. 7" tall, and holds 22oz.
And now we're pleased to bring you two new colorways, both available right now in our Tiki Mugs Collection. The Exsanguine version of Splendor and Riches features a white glaze base, with a red wipe. The Mortuus version of Splendor and Riches features a white glaze base, with a blue wipe. The regular version of Splendor and Riches features a tan glaze base, with a dark brown wipe.
"This mug was inspired by a Latin funerary inscription on a Roman gravestone dating back to the 5th century AD:
Not splendor nor riches,
But tranquility of spirit and body
Is provided here.
So until then may we all find splendor and riches in this life— be it love, friendship, or a surprise at the bottom of a mug!" – Becky Cloonan
NOTE: These mugs are handmade, making each one unique, so slight variations from images shown may occur.
Find them in our Tiki Mugs Collection, alongside SpongeBob SquarePants, Marvel villains like Thanos and Venom, and Disney icons like Scrooge McDuck and Sorcerer Mickey.
