About the Artist:

Craig Mason, Hawai‘i Woodturner, learned to love forests, trees and working with wood at an early age.  He was introduced to woodturning as a teenager in school wood shop classes.  All of those interests were put on hold for several decades while he finished school, served in the United States Navy, started a private dental practice, and raised a family. Over the years, working exclusively with trees salvaged from the waste stream, he developed skills in woodturning, carving and building musical instruments. The Hawaiian calabash, with its flowing curves, is his favorite form.

About the Wood:

Acacia koa is a species of flowering tree in the pea family, Fabaceae. It is endemic to the Hawaiian Islands. The highest populations are on Hawaiʻi, Maui and Oʻahu. Its name in the Hawaiian language, koa, also means brave, bold, fearless, or warrior.

Reforestation efforts are ongoing on the Big Island and on Maui, to recover the species from the devastation caused by clearcutting for ranching and more recently, invasive forest ungulates.
