A table lamp with layered-glass panels in a case of Hawaiian
curly koa trimmed with African Mahogany and African Wenge.

The color intensity and translucency changes depending on the ambient light in the
room, closely resembling hot, flowing pahoehoe lava in similar natural light.

The scene is different on each side, with both showing brilliant red flowing lava in a wide,
intense river. Each end or the lamp features a unique lava-flow abstract.


A lamp of art-glass and wood. The case is crafted of the spectacular wood
from an Austrailian Red Cedar in the artist's Hilo backyard.

The color intensity and translucency of the glass changes depending on the ambient light
in the room, closely resembling hot, flowing pahoehoe lava in similar natural light.

The lava is seen flowing in an intense river, originating from a pool carved into the top panel.
The flow runs through a field of hot lava, with small patches of forest in the distance.
A patch such as this, spared from the flows, is called a Kipuka.

Above is the other side of this piece. the design flows from one
panel to the next, creating an endless panorama.

A backlighted glass panel in a delicously multi-angled Koa and mahogany case. The color intensity and
translucency changes depending on the ambient light in the room, closely resembling hot,
flowing pahoehoe lava in similar natural light. The smooth, organic lines in the
glass do an amazing job of portraying flowing lava.



Another backlighted glass panel in a case of African Mahogany and Koa.

The lava is seen flowing from a glowing hot tube at the upper left. At the lower right
it divides around an intensely hot roll of A'a lava. Here and there, the windows
in the cooling lava reveal glimpses of what lies beneath.

In the distance, there is the green of a kipuka, a small area of
forest spared by the lava flow.
