Newsletter: December on Maui

Ceramic Dog by Robin Fahey Cameron

Happy Holidays!

Just in time for the holiday season, Robin Fahey Cameron just restocked all four Maui Hands locations with her fun and creative ceramic pieces like this vacationing dog (above).
Each dog is hand built and sculpted with a sense of fun. They embody the spirit of Maui, of island life- be it at the beach, on the waves, sight-seeing, or cruising around the Island on their motorcycle.

Also part of Robin’s collection are her Boulder Bowls. These are created by draping clay and shaping it to achieve beautiful flowing forms on hand-selected boulders from the wave pounded shore of Maui. Impressions of shells and other natural objects are added and crystal glazed to achieve one of a kind pieces that reflect the spirit of the island, formed in fire, graced with beauty.

Hawaii Man Proposes to Girlfriend while Surfing  

Some beach-goers got to witness a very unique proposal last month! While on a wave with his girlfriend, a Hawaii man got on one knee an proposed. Very shortly after, he dropped the ring in the ocean, but luckily he had planned for that. The real ring was on shore with some friends who were there to capture the moment.
The couple met at that beach many years before.
