Horror in Clay

Presenting the Horror-Infused Surf & Turf Show, Friday, July 13, at 7:30 PM!

Horror in Clay sells high quality horror-themed tiki mugs, art, apparel, barware and accessories by Jonathan M. Chaffin.

It started with a Kickstarter to create a Cthulhu tiki mug and an alternate history mythos storyline created by ephemera, inspired by my love of H.P. Lovecraft, the Cthulhu mythos, and tiki bars. 5 years and 1000’s of mugs later, my mugs are in collections and used in bars all over the world.

I’m a 20-year attendee of pop culture and comic conventions and have spoken and written on a wide variety of subjects including lowbrow art, horror literature, prop building, crowdfunding and movies, but my one true passion is themed environments and art installations..that’s how I got into tiki, and why I love it so much! I always love meeting collectors and talking tiki.

I’m also a devoted collector of art, the macabre sides of sideshows, and tiki mugs (particularly shrunken heads and mugs from places like the Mai Kai and Frankie’s). I also collect a lot of art, and WITCO decor. Thank YOU for collecting Things from Horror In Clay!
