Alu Like I is the first in a new series. In Hawaiian alu like means to come, gather or work together. Made from a giant Royal Palm Sheath, this piece took me in a new direction. We can venture into new directions by listening, in this case, I listened to the sheath and how it wanted to behave. I love the voluminous yet soft feeling it emits. This is a basket shape, which means it is made from one single sheath and has no wood base.

Like all of Shelley's creations, this is a one of a kind piece that cannot be duplicated; it is literally a piece of Hawaiʻi Island. Each sheath is sustainably harvested from natural fallen leaves from beautiful, giant palm trees (about 10 different varieties). A wonderful way to remember your island experience or bring the warmth of the tropics into everyday life. #takehawaiihome
