The Horror In Clay series 1 Cthulhu tiki mug started with a commission to Kristina Lucas Francis; a tremendously talented naturalistic sculptor and Tikiphile.  Response to the original sculpture was so strong that Jonathan Chaffin launched a kickstarter campaign to raise money for a production run. For the backer rewards Jonathan used his extensive background in graphic design, merchandising, and storytelling to create a backstory and supporting ephemera for the mug, turning it into an artifact from the fictitious cthuloid bar called Pickman's Cove.    The Kickstarter raised $12,500 in the first 72 hours, and continued going strong.

THANKS

•To Kristina Lucas Francis, who initially brought the mug to glorious, 3D life. Kristina is an exquisitely talented realist sculptor.  She shares a deep love of tiki and sci-fi with her husband, Paul. In addition to toy prototyping, designing, and building models for competitions and television, Kristina specializes in producing highly-detailed ceramic figures of animals. She completes the entire process herself, entirely by hand: sculpture, moldmaking, casting, cleaning, and glazing. http://www.lucasfrancisstudio.com/animalart/
Kristina will be the one casting, glazing, and firing the Series 1 and 2 Limited Edition runs of mugs. 
In addition to Kristina sculpting the mug, there are a few other people I'd like to thank for helping me in my work designing the Kickstarter ephemera, and without whose help the Tiki Mug and this grand shop adventure would not have been possible.

• Most of all, thank you to my wife Allison and daughter Charlotte (who loves her "khufuwoo" shirt) for their never-ending support and patience, and who are going to have to live with me in a world of boxes if this works.

•To Pauli for pushing me to shut up and do this, and for producing my recorded promotional efforts.

•To Alan Stoll for video editing http://onegaistudios.com/

•Mike "ShadowInk" Alberghini ( http://shadowink.net/ ) for his talent behind the camera and Scarlaa (http://www.modelmayhem.com/1202278), Joe Hunt, and M.F. for their talent in front of it.

•Thanks to Alex, Jamie, and Pynk for copy-editing and general cussedness.

•Thanks to Carol for historical cartographic consultancy.

•Thanks to Dr. Alice Phillips, PhD., for showing me how to properly catalogue a museum entry (also for the french translation)

•Thanks to the Losers Club of 1958 for helping perfect the cocktail recipe which comes with level 4.

•Thanks to Lady and the Krunk for the excellent song "He Waits"; possibly the only tiki mug to have specifically inspired a blues song.

• Thanks to the BookHouse Pub and anywhere else that still serves tiki drinks the right way; in a frosty ceramic mug.


Jonathan, Allison, and Horror In Clay would like to publicly thank all of our devoted and generous backers by name.  
Thank you all for helping make the stars right and bring this monstrous mug to life!
