Wrangler Forum Mugs
 
It's taking me a little longer than I thought to set up everything but I wanted to get the pricing up and start to work on everyone's mugs as soon as possible.

The mugs are handmade, of course, microwave/dishwasher safe, and hold about two cups of whatever you want to drink out of them. They're currently available in TJ, TJ with flat fenders, YJ and now CJ. I'm in process or carving a YJ with flat fenders, and with take requests for JK or other jeeps. I'll also take requests for sizing, smaller or larger.

The mugs are $20 each plus $8 to pack and ship them. Ask about pricing on sets or multiples. I haven't set up paypal yet, but I'd like to get working on the pieces since right now I only have five mugs left (I dropped one!!!) and I'd like to get working on them. So go ahead and either PM me with your order or post it here.

I haven't gotten photos of all my glazes right now, but I have lots of colors that I've developed, including red, blues, greens, browns, tans..... you really have to ask and I can shoot you over a photo of a color you might like. None of my glazes are one single flat color. They will range between different shades and sometimes totally different colors.

This has been an incredible project for me and I'd like to thank Kyle and Don for allowing me to offer these on the site. Keeps me out of trouble. And thanks to Chris for giving me the initial idea.

I think that's everything, and that I have everything spelled right, if you have any questions, please PM me, or post here.

Thanks guys. I love this place.

Those are awesome Tiny! Good job, as soon as I can scrape up a few extra $, I'm in.

jeeperman 02-01-2007 07:26 PM

Looking good! I like those, may have to hint for a V-day present for me...

tiny terror 02-01-2007 09:10 PM

soup, cocoa, soda, water...anything liquid will work. Probably make a really nice pen holder on a desk too. ;)

They look great, I will definitely be needing one for working at the dealership. The torx are a very nice touch!

4Jeepn 02-02-2007 05:30 AM

Those look great.

trulefty 02-02-2007 06:32 AM

They look great but why are all the square headlights in the back ?????

I'd like to see some Greens please and are they stamped on both sides? I'm left handed (surprise!) and the decorations on other cups always face me....

andok517 02-02-2007 07:20 AM

omg those are sweet, you did a really good job tiny....

isn't that a left handed one on the very left side of the picture??

tiny terror 02-02-2007 09:13 AM

They're stamped on both sides because.... surprise, I'm left handed.

I'm going to get color choices up as soon as I get them through the kiln. I have lots of glazes, so I'm in process of making test tiles to show them and make sure they work well with the detail.

Thanks again guys. And, after rereading my coffee drinkers thread, I realized not only had Chris given me the intitial design thoughts, but Dare2BSquare, while trying to keep me on topic, suggested WF mugs. Thanks Dare. :)

amy 02-02-2007 11:12 AM

These are sooo cool, Tiny!
I'll be ordering a TJ as soon as I get a little extra cash.
You did a fantastic job. :D

txoutdoorx4 02-02-2007 12:40 PM

Beautiful job Tiny! I'd like to order one so let me know how to do so. Thanks!

tiny terror 02-02-2007 12:49 PM

Just go ahead and post or pm me exactly what you want and I'll get working on them while I'm working through the payment thing. I want to make it as easy as possible for everyone, but I don't want to wait to make them until I have it all set up.

I have TJ, TJ w/flat fenders, YJ, YJ w/flat fenders, and CJ.

thanks guys :D

iamagolfspaz 02-02-2007 01:40 PM

Hey Terror
When ya get a chance,make me 2 of them.I can drive out there and pick them up.
Can ya make one red and the other yellow?

tiny terror 02-02-2007 02:32 PM

Yellow's an issue (vanadium burns out at the temps I fire to), I'm developing a yellow, but it's not like mixing paint. I have to get the chemistry right and fire the kiln just so to get certain colors. Red I can do, but yellow's taking a bit of time.

BILLG 02-02-2007 02:54 PM

I would like to order a TJ Mug.Dark Blue or somthing like that.Let me know about payment.Thanks Bill

chasm 02-02-2007 03:05 PM

Looks like I'll be waitin' then as yellow is the color for me. Flat fender TJ so I will have to do the mod to match the cup. :D They look awesome Chris, can't wait to order one.

khenderson 02-02-2007 09:23 PM

I would just like to say that these mugs are amazing! I got mine today and the pictures do not do them justice. The detail is amazing. The size perfect(not too big, not too small). I absolutely love the color I chose(black/brown). I know I probly shouldn't be endorsing anything that is sold on the board, but you WILL NOT be disappointed with one of these. I love it already and I haven't drank anything out of it yet! Thank you so much Chris!! It's fantastic!!!!!!

amerijeep 02-02-2007 09:26 PM

Dang. Terror told me I would be the first to have one.... She won't even take my money.....

tiny terror 02-02-2007 09:45 PM

(first yj, 'merijeep, first yj, don't get your knickers in a bunch)

Hahahaha, I missed this....... yes spodumenes and don't forget the wild nepheline syenite. Always a party favorite. :D

kg4kpg 02-09-2007 09:50 AM

Any luck on the yellow glaze, Tiny?

Thanks

tiny terror 02-09-2007 10:00 AM

Hahahaha, testing glazes takes time. I only fire the kiln once or twice a month, it take 12 hours of babying. But, I think it'll be no problem. I have a "gold" glaze, so yellow's got to be there.


Oh and the CJ and YJ flat fender stamps came out of the kiln yesterday. They look pretty cool.

lost 02-09-2007 10:16 AM

do you have any "non-chameleon" colors?

How about fire some of these, put a hole in the top for a leather string....walla! something to hang from the rearview or a Christmas ornament.

tiny terror 02-09-2007 02:06 PM

Those are what I use to make the impression into the clay. They take about six hours each to carve, so those would be some mighty expensive ornaments. Oh, and you're missing the flat fender YJ, guess I should post it. It looks goooood.

tiny terror 02-09-2007 07:31 PM

here's the YJ Flat Fender.....

http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e2...irrel/yjff.jpg

and here it is stamped in a fresh thrown mug

http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e2...rrel/yjmug.jpg

and last one of the pencils I used to make the stamps...

http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e2...eeppencils.jpg


I'm having way too much fun with this. :D

amy 02-09-2007 08:16 PM

Very cool! I like it a lot!
