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:

The Norfolk Island Pine grows to 140 feet with a diameter of up to 3 feet. The wood is lightweight (specific gravity .44), has a decided “knotty pine” character, and strength characteristics of Rocky Mountain Douglas-fir. The trees are widely available in Hawai‘i. The wood has a characteristic pine color. The most stunning modern use of these closely related species is for bowl turning. In finely turned bowls, the wood can take on a brilliant translucence very difficult to replicate with other woods. Norfolk and Cook pine wood is virtually identical.1
