Each year, tiki mug maker Tiki Farm holds a contest for members of Tiki Central, an online community of tiki enthusiasts. Members are encouraged to create designs for drink vessels and a panel of judges select up to six concepts, which are actually turned into really-for-real ceramic products to be sold by Tiki Farm.
This year's batch of winners are simply amazing. The grand prize was awarded to Tiki Central member Uncle Fun's "Banana Boat," shown here. And I'm excited to say the my design for a pineapple ukulele decanter made cut, squeaking in at 6th place.
The mugs will be released as part of Tiki Farm's Spring 2008 collection.
