Hawaiʻi Handweavers’ Hui is excited to partner with The Glass Fusion Collective in the joint exhibition 


Open to all artists, locally and internationally!

We live surrounded by water. How does this affect individuals and communities in our islands, on other islands, or even the world at large? How does water inspire us?


We invite artists to participate in our biennial juried exhibition focused on the theme “Surrounded by Water.” The exhibit will be held at the Downtown Art Center, Honolulu, Oʻahu, August 2 - 19 and at the Kahilu Theatre, Waimea, Hawaiʻi Island,  August 24 - October 29.

Eligible fiber and glass pieces may be functional, sculptural, traditional or contemporary. Fiber construction techniques should use interlacing in some fashion.

Juror's Statement

I dwell in a unique space at the intersection of art and science. A love of nature and the marine environment is the core that unites these seemingly disparate foci. In my professional life I work for NOAA in an effort to conserve endangered marine species. My work in marine conservation has taken me throughout the Hawaiian Archipelago where I have been able to see both the beauty and human impacts on the ocean and island environments. As an artist, I translate this appreciation for unique Hawaiian marine life into ceramic art. I am greatly inspired by a sense of place and connection with nature. Living on the Hawaiian island of O’ahu, I find endless opportunities for inspiration from the lush tropical landscapes, vibrant seascapes full of odd marine creatures, and the east-meets-west culture in the islands. I use my art as a way to draw in the eye and open the mind to the wonders of and threats to the natural world.
