This is the urn that holds the ashes of Tiki-Kate, the much-beloved Ooga-Mooga mug expert.

Kate passed away in 2010 after a battle with cancer. She asked her dear friend, the mug artist Dave "Squid" Cohen, to create this urn for her. She was able to see it, in pre-fired form, before she passed away.

The urn has four Papua New Guinea-style shields, protecting her on all sides. It is topped with a small Papua New Guinea tiki, to guard her forever, and keep her company.

This is a beautiful creation. It has been my plan to make my urn since 2006 and I have never heard of anyone else thinking this.

I added this one final mug to Tiki-Kate's collection.

As many of you know, Tiki-Kate has been a huge help to Ooga-Mooga over the years, sharing her passion and her knowledge by helping to create the mug templates.

This has been a hard time for the many people who were close with Kate. I feel her loss very keenly, particularly when I'm here.

Mahalo nui loa to Squid for creating such a beautiful resting place for Kate.
