Wood Bowls and Lathe-turned Forms,
by

J. KELLY DUNN (Translucent Lathe-Turned Bowls)

EDWARD PERRERIA (Traditional Hawaiian Koawood Calabash)



The people of Hawaii have always created the most beautiful bowls in Polynesia. Early in their history, the Hawaiians began crafting elegant wooden containers inspired by the rounded forms of gourds and coconuts.

Hawaiian wood bowls, ranging from simple yet elegant spherical forms to highly complex sculpture, are regarded by many collectors today as more art than artifact. Ardently collected, displayed, and treasured, the Hawaiian bowl has come to embody for many their pride in and love for the very spirit of Hawai'i. The Hana Coast Gallery is pleased and proud to be able to offer this special exhibit of Hawaiian bowls made by artisans of the islands from a number of beautiful native woods, including increasingly rare Koa wood.
