CONTEST: Win a Nicole Pangas Ceramic Skull Mug

This contest has ended. Congrats to MedicalArtMofo for being the randomly selected winner, and thanks to everyone for all of the great comments and supporting Nicole's wonderful work.

Right down the road from me is a talented ceramicist who goes by the name of Nicole Pangas. You may have seen her wonderful work here before, but this time she's back with a piece for one of you lucky skull lovers. This loopy looking bonehead wants to brighten your days by being a part of your collection of cups, and Nicole is looking to make those days arrive.



I can attest that Nicole's work is of excellent quality since I do have my own skull cup from her.

Nicole works in clay and mixed media collages. You can see more of these works on her site here and you can find everything you like about her on facebook here. Currently she has been working mostly with ceramics, especially on skull cups and mugs which can be found in her Etsy shop and several galleries. Nicole draws on the essence of the mediums she crafts to find her inspiration. " I embrace the inherent characteristics of each material I work with, each adding its own influence and expression with my work."

Nicole makes the cups, but she can't fill them for you. To be entered to win this skull mug leave a comment stating what non-alcoholic drink you would put in it to get you going for the day, and give a skullified twist to the name. For instance, I enjoy Haze'skull'nut coffee. (If you're not too witty then it's no biggie. Just let us know what you would drink from the cup).

[NOTE:
If you're reading this on Facebook or Google+ then be sure to leave your comment on the original Skull-A-Day.com post if you want to be officially entered in the contest.]

IMPORTANT: Don't forget to include a way of contacting you(either an email in the post OR be sure your blogger profile has a working email link for you). Entries are only valid with this information.

You have until Midnight Eastern time Wednesday February 8th to enter so don't wait... do it now.

Note: Nicole agrees to pay for shipping the mug to residents of the United States and Canada only. Sorry to everyone else. Ceramics are heavy and costs to ship them are also.

Of course you don't have to wait until the end of the contest to get your own mug, cup, or tumbler. Nicole's Etsy store has loads skullware so don't fret if you don't get this one. She'll keep making more. Thanks, Nicole!

Trepha-Nation Tea – clears the sinuses and relieves that pressure better than trephanation.

tbsp ground ginger
large pinch of cinnamon
large pinch of cardamom
