VanTiki Island's Official Explorers

Henrik Van Ryzin & Denise Van Ryzin make a variety of faux artifacts inspired by Polynesian Pop, adventure, exploration, and South Seas Mystery. Former Hollywood Artists (Henrik worked in Makeup FX, Denise in editing), they founded VanTiki Studio in 2001.
All VanTiki artifacts are created by hand, by us in our studio tucked into the woods in Eugene Oregon. We produce our ceramic pieces as either one-of-a-kind hand-built mugs, or limited edition castings. Once an edition is cast, all molds are destroyed.
