Skullhead Black Porcelain from Huck Gee x K Olin Tribu

   I have one experience with porcelain in my life and it involved high school ceramics class and a bad attitude.  We got to make whatever we wanted as long as there was no chance we could smoke something out of it.  The teacher had grown up in Philadelphia so he was wise to whenever some hillbilly kid thought they were being really slick.  I wasn't interested in smoking devices, but I was interested in being a weirdo so the first things I made were a set of loose teeth.  Having not fully filled my potential, nor having an adequate idea as to what I was going to do with them, I then turned my attention towards fashioning a toilet.  My methods were crude, so this was more abstract than the found and functional art of Duchamp, but it had character.  I decided it was an ash tray for the outlaw biker father I never had and a small drip of pride settled in at the bottom of my heart.  It was actually the second ash tray I had made in my life, the first being a rendition of Monstar's head from Silverhawks when I was in first grade.  The stranger thing about that is that no one I was related to ever smoke, so I have no idea why I decided everything had to be an ash tray.  Weird.

    You cannot as a matter of fact use this Skullhead figure as an ash tray because that would be dumb.  Huck Gee and K. Olin Tribu present their latest edition of this porcelain figure in all black, which is quite menacing looking.  Limited to an edition of only 50, and presented with a signed COA from the artist in a wooden box, you can order one of these now by visiting

Skull Gold B from Noon x K Olin Tribu

   I just got back from getting a filling at the dentist and I'm not even upset about it.  That's because my dentist has this head scanner that takes a 3D image of your skull.  I was beyond excited to see what my brain case looked like but no one offered to show me.  We're getting down to the end of things and I bring up the fact that I really really want to see my skull before I leave.  The hygentist's eyes lit up and told me that no one has ever asked to see it before.  I found that hard to believe but wasn't about to argue.  She pulls it up on the computer and there, in as much detail as if you had peeled my face off and taken a look inside, are all the nooks and crannies of my head.  I really want to find a way to have it 3D printed, so if anyone has any ideas please let me know.  I think it would make a great candy dish.

   You can't go wrong with having a few skulls laying around the house, especially when they won't implicate you in any criminal proceedings.  Now make that sucka porcelain with a distressed gold finish and you've got yourself a work of art ready for MTV's Cribs.  Noon and K. Olin Tribu have released a number of skulls in the past but this one is by far my favorite.  I love that "freshly discovered" look of items that were long buried and are just seeing the light of day for the first time in many years.

     If you're as in love with this as I am you better get moving because only 50 of them exist in the entire world.  You can secure one now by visiting

The Blank in Porcelain from Huck Gee x K Olin Tribu

    I took a ceramics class in high school and for whatever reason I sucked at it.  It might have had something to do with the fact that I tried to make everything with my hands and not use any actual tools while sculpting.  So my toilet ashtray looked more dookie than Duchamp, though I did have one success on the wheel and was able to churn out a bowl that was probably safer to keep your spare change in that eat cereal from.  One thing I thought was really bogus is if someone had a piece in the kiln with a huge air bubble that sucker would not only explode but send shrapnel through everything else in there as well.  I swear if that hippie kid's "flower vase" had wrecked my bowl there would have been an issue.  He swore the art teacher had no idea what it was actually used for, even though I'm pretty sure his love for the devil's lettuce is how he ended up teaching a bunch of degenerates in the first place.

    I bet the folks from K. Olin Tribu tried a lot harder in art class than I did.  The proof is in every porcelain piece they create, like this Skullhead Blank from Huck Gee.  This thing is smoother than Billie Dee Williams and a great rendition of such a popular figure.  Owning one couldn't be easier, cause all you have to do is click that logo you see on the right there and follow the directions.  Now once you get him I would look for the most secure place in your house that isn't a proving grounds for your cats and their theories on gravity.

Porcelain Temper Tot from Ron English x K. Olin Tribu

   Holy crap this baby is swole!!  I've been telling you for year that beef hormones are doing some freaky things to us and this is proof positive.  Dude is gonna go to preschool and run it like a prison yard.  He'll probably be taking the teacher's lunch money, make her drive him to McDonald's, and buy himself four Happy Meals.  This kid is my hero.

   This scary baby was created by Ron English and cast in porcelain by K. Olin Tribu in a limited edition of only 50 pieces.  Each one comes in a wooden box with a certificate signed by Ron.  The shame you will feel with how puny your muscles are is a bonus.

"In My Mind" Porcelain Sculpture from Jey NoName x K. Olin Tribu

    Have you ever wondered whether your mind would one day reach capacity and you would never be able to remember anything else without recording over some of your old memories?  Yeah, I don't obsess about that every day either, I was asking for a friend.  But it makes you wonder a little doesn't it?  Are the wrinkles in my brain so packed full of nonsensical trivia answers and passwords for social media that I'm unable to remember things that are actually important?  If someone could figure out a way to selectively delete information in your head that would the most brilliant/dangerous invention ever.  While you could erase painful memories you could also accidentally erase something important, like your ability to read, or the fact that you owe me money.  Or some madman could get his hands on it and wipe the brains of an entire country's worth of people.  this may or may not be what the new Captain America movie is about.

    Jey NoName and K. Olin Tribu have collaborated on this porcelain creation known as "In My Mind".  Supposedly it is a vessel to store your overflowing thoughts in.  Or you could go all Ancient Egypt and plop your organs inside when you die.  Not you in particular, but someone else who is not dead/squeamish.  Only 30 pieces of this decorative art piece were made and they are available now from

MC Supersized Platinum from Ron English x K. Olin Tribu

    Oh snap, look at that big old hamburger king!  He took so much money from you in exchange for hid diseased meat that he's gone and covered himself in platinum!  See, I never understand why people trust clowns.  When has a clown ever tried to get you to do anything and the results were good?  John Wayne Gacy was a clown and we know how all that turned out, so I guess a certain fast food clown's crimes against humanity aren't that extreme.  He at least doesn't kill you right away.

   I can't act like I don't appreciate fast food every once in a while.  Usually that appreciation ends the moment I realize what a terrible mistake I've made, but what can you do.  Is there a more grandiose ode to the king of instant gratification than this MC Supersized by Ron English?  Certainly not, especially when it's cast in porcelain by K. Olin Tribu and decked out in platinum.  He's available right now to lend your house some fanciness while simultaneously making a cultural statement.  Kind of like the way I saw myself in my teenage years.  Minus the fancy part, cause my jeans all had holes.

McSupersize Gold from Ron English x K. Olin Tribu On Sale Now!

    I'm embarrassed to say I have not only seen my first Drake video, but heard my first Drake song.  It's nowhere near my fault though, cause it was on the morning news cause they were making fun of his dance moves.  He does kinda look like someone going through physical therapy after a bad car accident, which is fitting cause the song made me want to drive into a tree.  Maybe his mom didn't believe in vaccines and he's got the early stages of polio setting in.  Serves him right for putting such awful noise out into the world.  

    I bring Drake up because he probably has a lot of money, thus making him a "baller".  But you don't need to sing bad songs to let people know your status, you can just get one of these sweet porcelain figures from Ron English x K. Olin Tribu.  People will walk into your house, spot that amazing gold finish, and know from the get go that you are not to be trifled with.  They might also ask you for a loan, so just be prepared for that.  

   These are limited to 15 pieces and on sale right now via

Porceplane by Flatau Florian x K. Olin Tribu

    Normally, I'm a huge fan of throwing things and would never tell you to not throw a paper airplane.  I'm no buzzkill, and sometimes great things happen, like getting stuck in a stranger's hair, or landing on someone's dinner.  But you really really should not throw this one.  For one, you might seriously injure someone, which will result in years of court and lawyers fees.  And most importantly, this sucker would break cause it's made of porcelain.

    This uber fancy paper airplane from K. Olin Tribu x Flatau Florian is limited to 30 pieces and available right now at

Black Porcelain Skull Brain from Emilio Garcia x K. Olin Tribu

    This dude is horror movie freaky.  You can just picture him lurking around a boiler room, goo dripping from his brain face.  His only real manner of defense would be how scary he looks though, cause the second you smack him upside his squishy head the whole thing's over.  Unless he has a skull underneath his outer brain with another mini brain stowed safely away inside.  I just blew my own mind.  

   Whatever anatomical anomalies this guy may be hiding, the Skull Brain from Emilio Garcia is a fantastic design.  And K. Olin Tribu have elevated it to a true work of art by casting it in cold, matte black porcelain.  Limited to only 50 numbered pieces, it is available right now from  You can also get there by clicking the handy link at the right side of the screen.

    I know how it is.  You want something desperately but you can't bring yourself to spend the money. I just spent $600 getting my wife's car repaired and that gave me an ulcer and this twitching under my right eye that hasn't stopped.  Even if I didn't just give a mechanic all my money I still have a hard time buying stuff for myself.  Unless it's on sale.  I love a good sale, and there's no better feeling than getting something you've been longing for AND getting it cheaper than you thought you would.  Right now K. Olin Tribu is running a sale on everything they make, from prints to those amazing porcelain sculptures we would all die to own.  They've even made it easy for you by becoming one of my site's newest sponsors and having a handy button over there on the right hand side for you  --------->.  Just click it and buy everything you want and don't forget those coupon codes posted above to save you some cash.

Purple Butterfly Porcelain Skull from NooN x K. Olin Tribu

    Skulls.  I love em, you love em.  They protect our brains from traumatic injury (most of the time), they give your head a shape much more pleasing than just the blob of skin and muscle it would be without it, and they are the perfect decoration for your palace once you have conquered your enemies (or your front porch to scare away would be sales people).  But what if you want to have, say, a dinner party at your house and your run of the mill skull collection just doesn't fit with the elevated theme of the evening?  Your prayers have been answered, because now you can put away all of those objects the police would like to question you about and display something far more artistic.

    NooN and K. Olin Tribu have just released the latest in their line of porcelain skulls with this one featuring purple butterfly embellishments.  Limited to only 50 pieces and housed in a wooden crate,  these are available to order right now from

Porcelain Skull "TJ" from NooN x K. Olin Tribu

    Wouldn't it be fun if all of our skulls had secret artwork on them depending on our personalities?  Then when we die they could all be placed in a great big museum for other people to come and look at and wonder what mysterious images their own skulls might contain.  And right here you have witnessed my greatest curse.  It's that I'm so great at coming up with ideas that cannot be replicated and sold for millions of dollars.  Just yesterday I created an idea for real life montages, just like the ones in the movies, that would help you get all of your work done in a fraction of the time it actually takes.  Got a big project coming up?  Let me sell you this montage and finish it in no time!  Wanna train for a heavy weight fight but have little to no experience?  Don't be silly, in the course of one of my montages you'll not only learn all the skills you need, but be the best at them!  I was ready to take this idea to Shark Tank and make Mark Cuban give me all his money, but alas, my product is but a figment of an over active imagination.  Why can't I invent something tangible that can be factory made and sold on early morning infomercials?  

    If you long for a finely decorated skull like I do, how about one of these beauties from K. Olin Tribu and NooN.  Made with the finest porcelain, each one is hand decorated with vintage motifs (my high school art teacher is so proud of me right now).  Only 50 were made and are available right now at

Cashmere Blue Porcelain Skull from NooN x K. Olin Tribu

    I don't know if they still make these or not, but remember those popsicles that told half of a joke on the handle and you didn't get the punch line that was hiding underneath until you finished eating it?  I wish that's how our skulls worked.  That after you were dead it would reveal some amazing design on your cranium.  It would certainly make the medical examiner's job more fun:

    "Upon exposing the skull, the deceased had a picture of the Tasmanian Devil holding a Confederate flag with the words Git Er Done written below it."

    I have simple dreams that will never come true, cause you can't get a Kickstarter going to make that happen.  What you can do is pick up one of these porcelain skulls from NooN x K. Olin Tribu.  It's much less messy than going out and harvesting your own skulls, plus the result is much nicer looking.  This Cashmere Blue edition goes up for preorder today at 6pm French time, which equals to 2pm in New York and 9am in Los Angeles.  They are limited to only 50 pieces and can be found at

Pink Porcelain Skull Brain from Emilio Garcia and K. Olin Tribu

    Not too long ago I read the book "The Lobotomist" about Walter Freeman, who was the man that pioneered the transorbital lobotomy.  You know, where they shove an ice pick through your eye socket and scramble up your frontal lobes.  The scary thing about it is not that he was delusional enough to think that it was a good idea, but that they were doing this nonsense only 50 years ago.  It makes you wonder what barbaric thing we do now will be looked at in the future with scornful eyes.  Like letting dudes wear skinny jeans.  

(On a side note, if you're interested in the first book, you should follow it up by reading "My Lobotomy", which was written by one of Freeman's patients who received a lobotomy at the age of 12)

    K. Olin Tribu has released another edition of Emilio Garcia's popular Skull Brains, this time in fleshy pink.  This is by far my favorite, as it looks freshly plucked and ready for your dinner table!  Think about it:  it's probably safer than eating anything that comes out of the ocean.  This porcelain sculpture is available now by visiting

Dead Che Porcelain Bust from Frank Kozik x K. Olin Tribu

    When I was a wee little lad my mother took me on a trip to Washington D.C.  While I was fascinated with all of the different Smithsonian museums, the various monuments that are scattered around the city were really only good for a few minutes enjoyment.  We walked up all the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and once inside it was kind of a let down.  I wanted to see Lincoln himself, not some giant statue of him.  I had heard about Lenin lying in state in Russia and wondered why we didn't do that here.  How cool would it have been to actually walk past his body?  I got to see his hat and other artifacts preserved behind glass, but the morbid side of me wanted to see what was left of him.  This may or may not be the reason I was always going to talk to counselors.  

    I think Kozik is down with spicing up the monuments of important political folk around the world.  Just look at this bust he did of Che Guevara.  He looks a little different here than he did when he was plastered all over those t-shirts in the mall.  K. Olin Tribu have transformed this former vinyl sculpture into porcelain and have offered it up for sale as we speak...or type.  There are only 15 pieces in existence and some are still available through

Skull Butterfly by NooN x K. Olin Tribu

    You know what I never get tired of?  Skulls.  I could fill my house with skulls and be a happy camper.  Real skulls, plastic skulls, art skulls, your skull.  I want all the skulls!  So I am always excited to see what K. Olin Tribu is gonna do next with NooN's porcelain skull.  Well, now I know, cause this time they have adorned his brain case with butterflies.  This thing is beyond cool and I want one pretty badly.  They're limited to 50 pieces and available right now at

"Bleu De Four" Porcelain Skull Brain from Emilio Garcia x K. Olin Tribu

    Way back in the 1980's there was this movie called Beastmaster that I loved as a kid.  Next to the Star Wars films and Clash of the Titans, this was my jam.  In that movie there were these creatures that had faces kinda like this and these giant bat wings that they would wrap around people to eat them in sort of a weird, digestive hug.  

He just wants to cuddle.

   These things really freaked me out and the Skull Brain has brought those memories of hiding beneath my bunk bed screaming into the present.  This porcelain version of Emilio Garcia's creation was made by the folks at K. Olin Tribu and is available right now.  Even though it freaks me out I do really like it because it is so simple yet striking all at the same time.  I would, however, ensure that my cabinet was securely locked ever night before going to bed lest this decide that I looked delicious.
