"Surface Water"
Ceramic sculpture with hand made twine rope
18" x 4" x 6"

This item is available to purchase and carry home tonight at the event.

If you are not attending the event but purchase the piece online be sure to include your email at checkout so we can contact you to discuss an additional shipping and handling fee.

The following words are from Edwin:
As many of you know, I was born and raised on the island of Maui. The recent tragedy in Lahaina hits directly at home for me. I have family and friends that lost homes but thankfully they are safe and have a place to stay. Others were not so lucky.

Artists have united to help raise funds through their artwork. With your help, we will contribute money towards the @hawaiicommunityfoundation which will directly support those in need on Maui.

Finally, tonight, this art show will be held at the Marsee Auditorium at El Camino College on September 9, 2023 at 7PM. The main event will be a performance of Defining Courage. Attend and support this good fundraiser. WWW.DEFININGCOURAGESHOW.COM
