Three 1/1 Taboo Planet Tiki Mugs Are Up For Auction
Tiki Maniacs is auctioning off three one-of-a-kind Taboo Planet Tiki Mug variants in glazes called Sandstorm, Purple Reign, and Tiki from the Green Lagoon. Each mug has been custom vandalized (ie painted) by Los Angeles based artist Faust Acosta and hand signed and hand numbered 1/1.
The auctions are being hosted by eBay and listed under the seller name “Tiki_Maniacs”. They went live at 6:30pm PST on August 6, 2020, and will end in about seven days. 100% of the proceeds will benefit charities. Each mug has its own charity as described in the listings. The charities include: Feeding America, Doctors Without Borders, and COVID-19 African American Relief Fund. These charities have been approved by eBay and all auction proceeds will go directly to the non-profits once the auctions have ended.
The Taboo Planet mug was originally designed by Tiki Maniacs, sculpted by Patrick Vassar, and produced by Tickled Tiki. For these one-of-a-kind mugs, Faust and Kathy at Tickled Tiki both donated their time and services. First and second editions have also been released of the mug, and you can read more about the second “Koa Wood” glaze here.
