About the Artist

As a self-taught woodcarver and sculptor, Richard Morgan Howell learned his trade through association with many indigenous woodcarvers throughout the Indo-Pacific through the past 35 years.  A fisheries development expertise led to a life of travel through beauty.

Howell specializes in 3d and Bas Relief carvings that reflect the infinite drama, wonder, and romance of the legends, myths, and technologies of Indo-Pacific cultures.  In producing his work he heavily relies on traditional wood carving technique and tools, challenging himself to produce aesthetically and personally satisfying results.

Most pieces are carved from a variety of woods such as koa, milo, and ohai, then finished with oil and wax.  For maximum lifespan and beauty, avoid displaying your piece in direct sunlight and avoid use of chemical cleaners.

His works are held in private collections throughout Hawaii and the Continental US, we hope you enjoy his beautiful sculptures as much as we enjoy bringing them to you.


Pine trees are tall and straight, with small branches. With light and space conditions, the tree have larger branches. Altitude depends on the species from 3-80 meters (10-260 feet), with common elevations ranging from 15-45m (50–150 ft). Most of the bark is usually scaly, the trunk is resinous. The branches are created in a regular spiral. The leaves are green, growing in clusters. Pine wood has a straight grain, medium texture, ensuring stability when used as furniture. However, some types will have uneven texture and appear knots.
