Hawaii Koa Naturals

Hawai'i Wood Guild Show, 2009

The Hawai’i Wood Guild’s 23rd Annual Show was held at Harbor Gallery in Kawaihae. The show featured works by talented Big Island woodworkers with a wide selection of entries ranging from furniture to sculpture, functional to whimsical. The wood artists who entered also had their chance to vote for their favorite piece and the owners of Harbor Gallery, Gunner and Elli Mench, presented an award for their favorite entry. Both the “Artists’ Choice Award” and the “Host Gallery Award” went to Scott Hare for “Hide and Seek”, a lidded calabash with high relief carvings of geckos and plumeria blossoms.
