Cthulhu Tiki Mug
The mighty Cthulhu has risen from the sea! Made of a blend of porcelain and stoneware, this masterful piece of pottery is based on the H.P. Lovecraft sketches of the part octopus, part man, part dragon deity of the sea. With hints of Polynesian tattoo imagery incorporated into the design, this 6.25" and 17oz mug is sure to make cocktail drinking a powerful experience! We recommend pairing this imposing mug with the equally potent Zombie cocktail. These mugs are part of a special numbered and signed series from Shima Ceramics.
And now, for a limited time offer, you can get the mighty Cthulhu in a matte black with a ferocious red interior!

About Shima Ceramics:
Shima Ceramics is run and owned by Chris Shima. I've been making sculpture of one kind or another for most of my life, with the subject matter centered around the grotesque and the fantastic. After using clay for years as a sculptural medium and making functional pottery as a production potter, I recently started my own pottery studio, Shima Ceramics. I am also a bartender at the Bull Valley Roadhouse in Port Costa, and am crazy about craft cocktails and tiki drinks. Combined with my love for H.P. Lovecraft's horror stories, making a Cthulhu tiki mug was pretty much inevitable. When designing this tiki mug, I decided to stay true to H.P. Lovecraft's original sketches of the "horror in clay", an idol of Cthulhu in his story "The Call of Cthulhu". I live in Port Costa with my partner Ashleigh, my daughter Lucy and three dogs.
