Bubbling up from the depths of Lovecraftian cosmic horror are these fantastic Cthulhu tiki mugs, perfect for your next secret party to summon the Great Old Ones.

Inspired from the Cthulhu Mythos imagined by Providence's favorite son, H.P. Lovecraft, each handmade ceramic Carafe of Cthulhu mug stands 8 inches high, weighs 2 pounds, and is finished with a different colored wash over the glossy glaze. Texas-based Mondo Tees is offering this tentacled collection of four different mugs designed by world-famous artist William Stout.
