The Artist

Nohea Gallery is proud to carry the work of Barry Wheeler, who is a member of the Honolulu Woodturners, with whom the gallery presents an annual show of works.

Your piece, which has a wax finish, requires minimal care. Enrich periodically with a paste wax, or a bee’s wax, by applying with a clean cloth, allow 10-15 minutes before buffing off with cloth. This will keep the wood beautiful and happy for years to come. Enjoy!

For the Honolulu Woodshow 2020 Barry brought us a beautiful Natural Edge Kou Bowl.

Kou

Kou is an excellent tree for a roomy landscape. They can get to be medium-large trees and may not be suitable for small urban yards that cannot accommodate a height and canopy spread of 25-35 feet. Kou grows in the coastal regions of the Hawaiian islands. It is considered a rare wood. Kou was prized by Hawaiian royalty for food use: poi bowls, calabashes and utensils as Kou does not impart a taste to food. Legend says the Gods choose who can work in Kou.
