Marquesas drum- jade green


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 jade tile green top, two of grain Polynesian base pattern, rope detail, and speckled buff interior to mimic the hide skin used on traditional tribal drums.

This is the second edition of 20, the first 20 were in a different glaze. There may be another edition of 20 in a different glaze combo, 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.
