Marquesan Drum mug

$110.00 Sold Out

This Marquesan drum mug is based on designs from wood carvings found in the Marquesas Islands, used in ceremonies for hunting, fishing, wars, funerals and more. Glazed with a burnt wood rub, turquoise seafoam Polynesian base pattern, rope detail, and speckled buff interior to mimic the hide skin used on traditional tribal drums.

This is a limited edition of 20 in this glaze combo. There will be more editions of 20 in different glaze combos, with no more than 80 total mugs, plus a few artist proofs.

The mug design began while I was with the Menehune Design Group, and I decided to leave the stamp as a final nod to the awesomeness that was MDG since it has disbanded.
