Aloha and welcome!

LightWave is about the magic of creation and the alchemy of ceramics. My work is inspired by the beautiful tropical environment of Kauai. LightWave studio is located in central Kapaa on the island of Kauai, Hawaii.
My goal as an artist is to create work that is beautiful and uplifting and brings joy to those who see it. I am self-taught. My journey has led me to explore many relatively untraveled paths in my search for beauty in ceramic art. Hence, many of my making techniques, glazes and firing processes are original and unique.

I have been making pottery and developing glazes for 35 years. For the past 15 years my major interest has been the vivid colors and rich patterns that can be made with colored clay.

All my pottery is handmade in my studio. It is high fired porcelain. All work is food, dishwasher and microwave safe. I’m always happy to give a tour of the workshop and share my techniques. I sell my work through my studio showroom and in online sales. I announce online sales on my mailing list (subscribe here) and on my Instagram feed.

For me, making art is a playful occupation. I want my customers to also enjoy and have fun with my work. In everything I do I seek to express the beauty and brilliant color of higher dimensional realities. Please browse the website to learn more about me and/or my process.
