Distinguishing  Babalu's Cobra's Fang Tribute Mug (Based on The Islander Menu)
This mug is #1 in a series of mugs by Rick Henderson (Babalu) that were inspired by the Cobra's Fang Mug image on The Islander Menu. The piece features a coiled cobra winding several times around a mug with its fangs perched over the side of the lip...ready to drip venom into your drink! The vessel itself is a pale green, the cobra is a dark gray, and the interior is white. The bottom is etched with the designer's name, year, and "Cobra's Fang #1". Rick started making this mug during the Summer of 2008 at Tiki Oasis VIII and finished it in the Fall. Like all of his mugs, this piece is handbuilt and there will never be another just like it. The detail of the scales is incredible. Like all great works, there is a minor flaw, but not one that detracts from its beauty... Unfortunately, a couple of cracks appeared in the bottom during firing, but Rick was able to seal them with glaze and the mug holds liquid. The cracks are not visible when on display. This is truly a beautiful piece! MAHALO, Rick!!!!!

Babalu's Cobra's Fang Mug was inspired by the image of the original Spurlin mug design in the Los Angeles Islander menu. This mug is a hiball with a woodgrain. It is encircled by a cobra. There is a multiglazed edition of this design limited to fifty. Within the multiglazed edition are three main varieties (moss green, brown, and tan branch), as well as a "Yin/Yang" edition of 4 pairs within the 50 released. This, however, is an Artist Proof and as such, glaze colors and details vary.
