A Piece of Hawaii
A genuine piece of the islands, award winning fiber artist Shelley Hoist's creations bring the warmth and textures of the islands into your home, office and life.
She begins with the sheath of a naturally fallen palm leaf that can be up to 10' long. After soaking, she carefully hand stitches her sculpted form and the dance continues as the drying process contracts the natural fibers and the new form emerges. Different colors are achieved by using different varieties of palms. There are no duplicates as she gives new life to raw material. Each piece is signed, numbered and completed with a durable finish.
Her desire is for her intentional artwork and lifestyle accessories to strengthen our connection to the natural world.
