Functional and decorative ceramics, hand made in Hawaii

Hawaii’s potters share their raku fired decorative pottery, functional high fired stoneware and porcelain here.

Rauyl Nakayama makes charming ceramic flower dishes that are designed to hang on a wall or sit pretty on a table or countertop.  Perfect for a dish of coconut sorbet (!), soap dishes, namasu, keys and change, and just to sit pretty wherever they are, Rauyl’s flowers make everyplace more beautiful. They are the perennial ‘pua mae’ole“, the flower that does not fade. One flower at at time, Rauyl has made a lei around the world.

Jeff Chang’s ceramics are longtime favorites for wedding gifts and host or hostess gifts.  Tea tumblers, coffee cups, saimin bowls, small bowls and platters are unmistakably handmade and a great value.  His raku lidded vessels and urns hold a special place in many homes.  His raku fired lamps are available at the Kahala Mall location in sizes ranging from his largest ever made, now on view, to his table lamps.  Each one is unique.

Peter Okumoto’s Mom Dorothy developed the iconic collection known as Porcelain Hawaii.  Peter continues to develop her vision as he promised her that he would.  His neko cats with plumeria flower adornments are widely collected favorites, as are his vases and decorative ceramics.

Jo An Rowley’s sculptural ceramics bring a smile every day.  She surprises us with work we can’t begin to adequately describe.  If I told you there was a smiling chubby bright blue pit bull that you’d really want to take home, would you believe me anyway?

Rochelle Lum’s sculptural ceramic animals are technically masterful and visually a great joy.

Aloha Aina Pottery makes lei bowls.  What’s that?  Wherever you are in the world, whatever flowers you may have available, this sturdy design from the 1940’s puts a Hawaiian lei on your table.  They make fantastic centerpieces and bring a little Hawaii home, wherever you may be.

Lorna Newlin’s stylish ocean-themed ceramics encompass sizes from 2.5” to large platters.  Octopus! Honu! Countless fish, starfish, and even leafy sea dragons charm and delight.
