Pele Power is a standing vessel made from the natural colored sheath from the leaf of a giant Alexander Palm tree growing on Hawaii island. It has a wood base, and the top and bottom have been embellished with handmade papers. The brilliant and beautiful rooster feathers on the side not only add interest and texture, but love to ruffle in the wind. It's finished with a hand rubbed polyurethane.
Pele Power received its name because it was created during the 2018 volcanic eruption on the big island. As an artist who works with the gifts that nature provides, Shelley "could feel the power beneath me," and the pieces that came from that time hold Pele's energy.
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
