Tiki-Ko and Tiki Diablo Team Up For New Diving Helmet Tiki Mug Atop A Rum Barrel
Tiki-Ko, in Bakersfield, CA, and Tiki Diablo have teamed up for the first time on a new ceramic Tiki mug. The mug depicts a weathered scuba diving helmet placed atop a wooden rum barrel. Nautical ropes hang down over the front of the barrel, which is marked with the Tiki-Ko bar name.
The new mug features a mostly two color glaze with a brown barrel and will be available for pre-sale today, Christmas Eve, at 12:00pm PST and 3:00pm EST. Each mug will retail for $135, plus tax and $15 shipping. There is a limit of two mugs per person and the estimated ship date is approximately 90 days. This mug is a limited edition of 250.
Tiki Diablo is widely considered one of the best and most diversified creator of tiki mugs. He designs, sculpts, glazes, manufactures and sells his own mugs. In addition to creating ceramics, Tiki Diablo also specializes in full venue design and decor. Each mug designed by Tiki Diablo tells a unique story, set to captivate the drinker or collector.
Two other diving helmet Tiki mugs by Tiki Diablo have previously sold out; the Aquanaut V and the Jetsam Pilot. Both of those mugs are in progress and have not yet shipped out. Diablo recently shared some glaze test pictures of the Aquanaut V on his Instagram page.
Those hoping to place an order or two for the new Tiki-Ko diving helmet will most likely be able to do so via Tiki-Ko’s official web store.
