Maui Wood Artist Listings
Listed in alphabetical order
My studio is located near the town of Makawao, in the heart of Upcountry Maui. The windfall Koa wood that I use comes from the slopes of the volcano Haleakala, “The House of the Sun.”
Working mostly with Koa wood I create one of a kind turnings, calabashes, bowls, lidded vases, hand chased threaded boxes, hollow forms, wood lathe art gifts, and custom orders.
Deeply moved by the gift that the Japanese have given to the world in regards to wood technology, Fierro, who grew up the son of an artist, completed a five-year Japanese-style woodworking apprenticeship and has taken this refined approach to new heights on the island of Maui.
Attracting a team of the finest woodworkers on the island, Fierro is now one of the top woodworking manufacturers in the region. Utilizing millworking machinery and traditional Japanese handtools, Fierro’s team creates a wide array of “functional sculpture” : Full wood interiors, staircases, windows, doors, teahouses, meditation huts, pavilions, shoji, furniture, lamps, furo (cedar soaking tubs), and an assortment of architectural details; all are intended to develop that deliciously rich characteristic of time and usage: wabi-sabi.
This element of beauty found in the aging sheen of patina amplifies the understated and refined aesthetic Fierro and his team employ in architectural magnificence beyond words.
David Fitch - Heirloom Woodworks
I create furniture that highlights the natural beauty of wood itself. I believe in crafting pieces that are not only visually stunning, but also highly functional, so that your piece of artwork can be integrated into your daily life, with a level of quality worthy of handing down for generations.
Creating works of art that you will treasure is passion. Over the twenty years of experience I have gained, I have come to cherish the wood itself as the major design element, nature as my inspiration and my relationships with my clients as the core of my business.
