This deceptively simple tiki mug design is a a Mid Century Modern version of an Easter Island head. Odd Rodney captures the essence of the iconic statue of Easter island in its simplest form relying on shadows to help tell its story. The design’s foundation is a cylinder with sharp cuts to form the “wedge” that creates the brow and cheeks of the statue. A simple rectangle defines the nose. At the base, the cylindrical shape “leans back”, which adds stability to the mug. It also creates an additional flat plane to represent the chin and mouth in shadow. The ears are simple low relief rectangular shapes. This mug is dependent on lighting and shadows to show its form and character, thus simple exterior colors (predominately white or black) were used.
