LightWave is about the magic of creation and the alchemy of ceramics. Our studio is in central Kapaa on the island of Kauai.

Many of my pieces are whimsical, 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 of  Hawaii and the brilliant color of higher dimensional realities. Puff, the magic dragon is my mascot. dragon

My goal as an artist is create work that is beautiful and uplifting and brings joy to those who see it. I am self-taught.  My journey as an artist 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 testing and developing ceramic glazes for 30+ years.

All my pottery is handmade in my studio. I’m always happy to give a tour of the workshop and share a few potter’s secrets. My studio showroom is my main outlet for my functional, high fire pots and ceramic art.
