He’e – Octopus Vase by Lee Oululani Plevney. Ocean-inspired ceramic art handmade on Maui, Hawaii.
About The Artwork ~ Lee’s Process
I begin a vase or platter by throwing white stoneware to create a vessel. For each piece, I next move to hand-building which changes the shape and story of the piece, transforming it into its final form. I develop my own glazes to capture the rich blues and greens of the island, then fire the work to bring out the depth and complexity of the glazes.
When complete, each piece “talks story” about the Hawai’ian world I experience every day on Maui.
