"The Feeling of Movement, Hau" by Derek bencomo Bencomo

"The Feeling of Movement, Hau"

Sometimes you get lucky. The last time i found a rare Hawaiian Hau burl was 26 years ago. A friend told me that he had some Jacaranda logs in his green waste pile. Not my favorite wood, but its always best to check out the wood when someone's calls you. I took a small piece of Jacaranda and noticed a couple of small logs that looked different. Burl wood at that.  It was from a Hau tree. Just enough to make one vessel. A lovey and rare piece for your collection.
