A fun (and Ojai connected) California holiday tradition is now a celebration that everyone can share!
Ojai graphic artist Sam Hamann and a group of friends at Pepperdine in Malibu carried matching mugs with them during the holiday season, a practice that they continued all through college. After those student days, and as his graphics career advanced, Sam started designing custom mugs as presents for these friends and a growing list of business associates and family members. Mug collections grew as fast as the expanding list of enthusiastic “Muggers” who couldn’t wait for each year’s new design. Today Sam counts over 1000 people on four continents among this festive group.
Never before offered to the public, Rock the Glass is the first official retail outlet for Holiday Muggers
and the limited release of “Santa’s Gone Surfin”, the 2005 mug design that has become a favorite of Sam’s friends and collectors. A series of bright surfboards featuring festive seasonal graphics rolls around this ceramic mug, but one’s missing — and the red and white suit left behind is a good clue who’s the culprit!
Join this fun holiday tradition and share it with your friends this season! This short run of 100 pieces will be gone quickly but future seasons will see the release of several of the most popular and beautiful designs in the series. Happy Holidays!
