Banana Leaves by Terry Taube
“Paper has so much potential,
you can make it into anything” – Terry Taube
The cast paper sculptures of Hawaii artist Terry Taube breathe life. The detail is so complex, the texture, so vivid. His sculptures capture colors that only exist in nature. Touch the fan leaf as it flutters in a warm ocean breeze. Anticipate the smooth, playful splashing of a turtle.
Open your senses as you explore the intricate artwork of Terry Taube, a natural impressionist with a passion for paper.
For thirty years, Terry has made Hawaii his home, exploring its natural elements and recreating them to share with others. His innovative paper casting techniques and styles have allowed him to achieve a level of originality that celebrates the renaissance of paper in art. Papermaking is one of the world’s most ancient forms. Terry continues this tradition. The originality and vitality of his creations are a reflection of his reverence for nature and culture. His desire is to work so directly with the subject as to capture the ambiance of the fiber that binds it.

Panna’s Pono and Auwe!
State Parks in all 50 states are offering free, guided hikes on January 1st 2020. This is an annual tradition that thousands participate in.
Here in Hawai’i the mile-long hike is at Kaiwi State Park on Kaua’i. Our state’s hike is often the best-attended in the country due largely to our mild winter weather, and its family friendly nature. It is a beautiful way to ring in the new year and the first sunrise of 2020.
Rescued Honu Returned to Ocean After Entanglement
A Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle that was rescued in late November has been returned to the ocean. The Maui Ocean Center worked with NOAA Fisheries in Honolulu to free the Honu from a fishing line that had entangled its neck, and right flippers. Unfortunately, due to the severity of the injury, one of the Honu’s flippers had to be amputated. Before being returned to the ocean, she was tagged with “MA02” on her shell. The Maui Ocean Center hopes to hear from snorkelers that see her while in the water.
