My first legit pre-sale: WALT ON ICE!

I know, I know … I always said I’d never do a “pre-sale”. But my small batch “made-to-order” system where I would add 6-10 mugs to my production schedule each week in a Friday night sale was pretty much the same dynamic as a pre-sale, just on a much smaller scale. And for the launch of the website, I felt the best way to kick things off and give me some breathing room to stay on top of orders and fix any issues with the website was to do my first actual “pre-sale”.

The WALT ON ICE has been teased for a few months now and it’s time to get it going! Grab the liquid oxygen and put that head in the cryo-chamber! I’ve always had a bit of a twisted sense of humor, and chopping the head of ol’ Walter Elias and putting it in an ice cube seemed like the logical next step. Based on a modified sculpt of my current WALT mug, this sucker is going to be encased in a block of clear resin. The top of the head will be protruding by just a few millimeters and it will have the opening on top for your favorite cocktail (we’ll have to have Cap’n Pat devise an appropriate recipe).

WALT ON ICE goes on sale Thursday, March 16th, at 7pm East Coast Time in a limited first run of 50 mugs (don’t worry, if the run goes well and I don’t get too far behind schedule, I will be offering him up in either another run or in drips and drabs over several week on the SHOP page. He will be $250 plus shipping … the higher price is due to this being my most ambitious and ridiculous mug yet and these won’t be easy to produce, so I got my work cut out for me!
