Artists Rauyl Nakayama and Cindy Conklin

About the Artist

Rauyl was born and raised in Hawai’i. He served our country in the Vietnam War, and holding a Dan ranking (black belt) in Aikido.

Ceramics

He has been a ceramic artist since 1990 and says he now expresses his philosophy and social comment through his clay and mixed media sculpture.

Rauyl has refined and perfected a classic from our grandparents’ era with these beautiful hand glazed, food safe, flower dishes. They are individually made in Hawaii. The amount of time and care that goes into these small dishes is amazing.

Now Rauyl has decided to try his hand at woodwork. He has created a unique line of Kiawe and Lychee wood clocks.

Kiawe (Prosopis pallida)

Prosopis pallida is a species of mesquite tree. It has the common names kiawe[3] (in Hawaii), huarango (in its native South America) and American carob, as well as “bayahonda” (a generic term for Prosopis), “algarrobo pálido” (in some parts of Ecuador and Peru), and “algarrobo blanco” (usually used for Prosopis alba). The kiawe is a spreading bush or moderately sized tree, bearing spines, spikes of greenish-yellow flowers, and long pods filled with small brown seeds.

The first specimen in Hawaii was planted from a seed brought by missionary Alexis Bachelot from the Palais-Royal Gardens in 1828.

Kiawe wood has a beautiful golden brown color and is the most durable of woods. It takes a long time to work with it because it is such a hard wood. The rewards of the finished product are well worth the effort though.
