August 8th Update: Production is still rolling full steam ahead! Rolling shipments for pre-orders (earliest first) are expected to start in September. This latest delay is caused by some mugs having glaze flaws or some mugs started over entirely from scratch because cracking during the final firing process - worst thing to happen. It's a very complicated process, but we're getting closer every day, and thanks for your patience for this extended wait. -KK
Custom manufactured by Lunacy FX for KahunaKevin.com based on Kevin's original concept sketch artwork. This is a hybrid between the famous Tiki Bob smiley face mug from Elvis Presley's Blue Hawaii movie and a nod & wink to the cult classic The Big Lebowski movie, hence The Bob Lebowski 'Bowling Bob' bowl was born.
Bowl #s 31-100: 50 Bowling Bobs will be available for sale as singles. The earliest orders will receive the lowest numbers pulled from inventory. Discounted bundles are available if you would like to purchase both the Pinhead Mug and Bowling Bob Bowl (see other products for availability).
Bowl Specifics (Subject to changes as production starts and prototypes are manufactured. Below is the target we're aiming to for):
- Single piece bowl design approximately 6-7 inches round with flat base (not a pedestal) so it looks like an actual sitting bowling ball
- Airbrush painted main body using a combination of custom blended purple chameleon and light refracting nano metal flake car paint that color shifts and sparkles depending on the room lighting and angle of viewing. It's going to look like an absolutely insane retro bowling ball! See example color swatch photos, but they don't do justice to the actual real life chameleon color shifting effects. Samples also missing sparkles
- Stylized extruded rear The Bob Lebowski text with "Nobody Fucks With The Juices" subtext, a comical play on The Big Lebowski movie's "Nobody Fucks With The Jesus" line, meaning Hands Off My Drink!
- Mock bowling ball finger holes will be recessed to give depth. Toying with the idea of alternately making the top 2 holes actual funtional holes for holding straws. Maybe send out a poll to pre-orders to decide
- Matte finish wood glaze Tiki Bob face w/ glossy black eyes
- Open port on bowl top for easy ice, drink and straw access
- Food safe glossy black glaze inside
- 100 pieces manufactured, custom painted and glazed by hand - 100% designed and Made in America supporting small U.S. businesses
- All bowls numbered from 31 to 100, hand signed by Kahuna Kevin prior to shipping
- Ships double-boxed, insured, Priority Mail 2-3 day
