Currently Available Koa furniture by Tai Lake
The Crescent Table
Koa and Wenge wood. Now showing at the Gupton Gallery in Kailua Kona $8400
This piece was designed to accompany a Ladies Vanity but has been very popular by itself.
The New Ohana Bench - SOLD
Ohana means family in Hawaii and this bench has a seat carved for every size of body. This is Robusta Eucalyptus with a detail stripe of Pheasantwood on the base. 104" long x 19" high. Rubbed poly oil finish. $5600.00
Kamani wood Sculpture now showing at the Gupton Gallery. The ripple of the kamani wood and the bird/whale shape of the top suggested themes for a title, but those seemed to "tame" the piece and force the viewer to see it from a certain perspective. The spaces left open are invitations to look into and through the form to draw you into the piece and to the world beyond. I think the boxes might also serve as small altars for objects found on walks. The space between is the inside passage, where the world is whatever you decide it is. 86 h x 26 w x 12 d
Mango Slice Table
Console table. Gorgeous Mango wood that tapers in width with gently curved ends that are dovetailed into the top. Carefully shaped with large dovetail joinery. Now showing at the Gupton Gallery.
