Splendors of Ikebana 2016
In May, the Honolulu Museum of Art School hosted the Splendors of Ikebana show in its main gallery. This year it was the Sogetsu school which put on the display.
From May 27 to May 30, Hawai'i Craftsmen celebrated its 40th annual Raku Ho'olaule'a at Mokule'ia in Waialua. Ken Kang, one of the original organizers of the event, served as both the guest artist and the juror for the exhibition. The exhibition was at Marks Garage and featured the pieces chosen by Ken. Below are images of every piece in the exhibition which closed on July 1. I've also included photos at the end of some of the pieces in the silent auction, Barbara Thompson's display of pots in the showcase, and some of the guys doing raku outside on First Friday.
I hope this blog will be encouraging to potters, especially beginning potters, and a source of helpful information and comment.
