About the Artist

His early experiences were as a carpenter and cabinet maker.He didn’t become interested in woodturning until about 12 years ago. Once he started turning, he was hooked and has been an avid turner ever since. Having a well-equipped shop in the back of his Mililani home allows him to prepare,turn and finish bowls without leaving the comfort of home.

Owning a fairly large Powermatic lathe lets him turn projects up to 20 inches in diameter. He prefers turning large bowls and hollow forms. The ability to turn wood that would otherwise be thrown in the landfill into useful objects and art is very fulfilling.

The variety of local woods provides a steady source of material to turn. Lychee, Norfolk Pine and Mango are someof his favorite woods. Most recently he has become interested in wood burning as a way to add visual interest to some of the less figured (bland) woods. Having recently retired he is looking forward to spending eve more time at the lathe.

Royal Poinciana

Royal poinciana is also called flamboyant tree or peacock tree because of its strikingly beautiful flowers. Native to Madagascar it has been widely planted in frost-free regions for its large scarlet to orange flowers and its shade. It is a rapid grower, attaining a height of 20 to 40 feet. The fruit is a flat woody legume, up to 2 feet long.

Mahalo for purchasing a beautiful wood piece from Nohea Gallery. In caring for the item, please note that wood and water are not a good mix and direct sunlight could fade the wood.
