Kauai, Hawaii Coconut Palm Tree Pods handcrafted into artwork
My friend, Ron Stone, is an artisan. He makes very unique art from the coconut pod from Kauai's coconut palm trees. The artwork is beautiful. Assisted by his wife, Rosemarie, Ron creates outrigger canoes (with and without sails), candle canoes, surfboards and now they have introduced a cribbage board created from the pods.
Ron has been creating the artwork for over 4 years now. He gets the pods from the palm tree cutters when they trim the trees. Then the pods dry for several weeks, the harden pod becomes the basis for his artwork. He crafts the pods into wonderful canoes, outriggers, sail boats and sailriggers. The sails in the shape of the ancient Hawaiian sails using fabric of Hawaiian prints. The sail masts and rigger pontoon are made from bamboo from Kauai, Hawaii.
Ron will create a custom piece for you or he has pieces that are ready for you immediately.
Ron has recently teamed up with Neal Matsuyamay and offers hand painted surfboards. Ron's work can be found on his website at www.stoneofkauai.com. They will ship the artwork to you.
If you are on Kauai he is at the Westin Princeville Hotel on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
What a great gift idea!
