designer and maker of artistic

vases with wooden compopnents

Our association with Hawaii motivates me to venture into the design of wooden vases.

Hawaii is blessed with beautiful, exotic flowers. It has a population of mixed cultures that absolutely adore not only the beauty of flowers but also the placement and presentation of them. 
The blending of these cultural values is what I try to express in these art forms. The goal is to create a functional decor in which the vase and the flower it contains will compliment each other on equal footings.

I choose wood as the medium because I feel that it is most naturally related to flowers. I use built-up components instead of  turning wood blocks because the vases look less symmetrical, lighter, more detailed, and offer more shapes.  The criteria extends further into the type and size of flowers expected to be used and the manners and occasions in which they are presented.
