At the age of 26, Tor Chantara lives his life simultaneously in two worlds, practicing the fine woodworking art of marquetry that has its roots in the 16th Century, while learning techniques and ordering supplies via the Internet.
We are delighted to feature the colorful ceramic flowers of Honolulu artist Rauyl Nakayama. Rauyl served our country in the Vietnam War, and holding a Dan ranking (black belt) in Aikido.
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’s ceramic flowers are food safe and can be used to serve pupus or desserts. These delightful ceramics put Hawaiian delight to every table setting. Handmade and hand painted right here on Oahu. Truly Gracious Hawaiian Living!
Maui artist Bob Hoenig designs and fires each of these ceramic plates. Please see "Information Tab" for size details. He started drawing Hawaii’s marine sea life. He then applied these drawings to ceramic molds, He hand glazes and signs each piece.
Bob and his wife Mary Lou love entertaining with pupus (appetizers) and sushi. So, many of his ceramic dishes are perfect for small portions and casual dining. Perfect for gracious Hawaiian dining.
