The Horror In Clay Cthulhu tiki mug production run by Jonathan Chaffin — Kickstarter
CTHULHU + TIKI MUG! I have been on the hunt for such a thing for many strange aeons…
“The Horror In Clay is a large tiki mug, inspired by my love of the works of H.P. Lovecraft and his Cthulhu mythos, and of the classic immersive restaurants and lounges commonly called tiki bars.
The Production Edition funded by this kickstarter campaign will probably be in the 7.5in, 30oz neighborhood, and will come in a solid green glaze.
The Limited Edition available at the higher donor levels (probably fewer than 20 will be made altogether) is 8 inches high with a 3 in diameter. It holds about 36oz, or 16oz of drink with ice.
Both tiki mug editions are food and alcohol safe; ready for you to carry them over hill and over dale, through convention hall and through regional Burn, merrily seeking dark secrets.
The mug has already been commissioned, sculpted, molded, and slipcast from the final mold in a limited earthenware edition which was used to produce a bisque master and glaze tests. It is beautifully horrific.
After funding is successful, the bisque master will go to the factory.
Production turnaround is 90 days, so I should begin shipping these out in Oct.
For this project I want to mass produce both the physical object and the backstory or mythos surrounding it; in effect creating not just an awesome drinking vessel, but all the supporting artifacts that lend it an air of authenticity.
I intend to order a production run of at least 500 of these foodsafe, monstrous mugs. As I said, I have the master completed; this project is to pre-sell enough of these bad boys to recoup all of the R&D and mold-making costs, have the run produced and shipped, and of course to make the rewards and pay relevant fees, etc. ”
