About the Artist

Albert was born in the Netherlands to a tropical agriculturist from Indonesia, which was a Dutch colony at that time, and a mother from Holland.
They moved to Indonesia when Albert was two months old.
With the Indonesian Revolution from 1945 to 1949 they had to move back to the Netherlands and decided to emigrate to the US. After settling in Duluth, Minnesota his father accepted a job at the Dole Plantation and the family moved to Hawai’i. Living on O’ahu, Maui and Molokai, Albert finally attended and graduated from the Mid-Pacific Institute.

He’s really grateful that he had the chance to live on several islands here in Hawai’i and got to learn so many things about the people and the culture.

His interest in woodturning started when he went on hikes with his father and a friend who was a woodturner, collecting large pieces of local woods and watching him turning them into beautiful bowls.

After he retired, he set up his own woodturning studio and is now following his life long passion.

Here we are offering select pieces of his wonderful woodwork.

Autograph Tree (Clusia)

The Autograph tree is native to the Carribean and was brought to Hawaii as an ornamental plant. It can reach hights of 65 feet. When the fruits are dropping to the ground they are turning into a beautiful hard star shape. The wood of the Autograph tree is very durable and is sometimes used for roof construction.

 

To care for your Autograph Tree Bowl, keep it out of bright sunlight and water. Dust it occasionally for many years of enjoyment.
