The Big Island of Hawai’i is the largest island in the Hawaiian island chain, however, it is also relatively rural for its size, and as most know it has the active volcano of Kilauea. Offered in Koa Wood, Mango Wood, and an assortment of metal finishes–if you want the single Big Island of Hawai’i or the entire island chain you have come to the right place.

Description

The Big Island of Hawai’i

Paint the Hawaii Island on canvas and you’ve got a memory that you cannot erase, but capture the topography on wood and you’ll have a carved wall artwork that captures the stunning natural simplicity of these islands- with no details spared.

The Big Island of Hawaii is the largest and youngest island in the Hawaiian chain; it’s inspirational and its art is distinctive. The amazing beaches and incredible biodiversity has tempted many an artist to represent it in artwork, but few have succeeded in capturing the minute details to the exact nicety that is offered here, and at a price which is aimed to be competitive in nature..

 

Excellent Finish Work in Koa, Mango, and Metal Finishes

Every wood island is sanded meticulously and a few coats of oil are rubbed on them with buffing between coats. Finally two satin lacquer top coats are applied to give it the vivacity that the islands are known for. Only the natural color and grain of the woods is used for Koa Wood.  However, Mango wood is generally given a light stain for additional contrast, and can be custom stained on request.

Some artists have tried their hand at immortalizing the beauty of the Big Island of Hawaii, but no one has yet to match the price, detail, and quality our Hawaiian islands sold here.

You may also have your Hawaiian Islands wall art in a metal finish (see the “Metal Finish” product tab for more info) which results in a lightweight and easy to hang piece of artwork. The choices here are between the solid, steadfast silver of iron, or the more chrome-like high shine of aluminum. You can also choose to have either copper or bronze used to make your wall art piece; and each will bring the glimmer of opulent gold to your home.

Whether you’re a casual tourist that’s entranced by the sandy beaches and upscale resorts or a backpacker and hiker that relishes in the trails that go through Hawaii’s diverse forests, you want something to take back as a memento. Hawaiian wood art is the perfect place for this for here you get more than a token, you get to actually showcase the islands themselves in all their glory.

 

Offered in Several Sizes

Hang the wood art on your wall and you’re sure to feel that you’ve never really left the archipelago, even though you’re now miles away. Our Hawaiian islands will hang nearly flush against any wood or drywall; with a magnetic screw or nail, just like our Hawaiian island chains which our customers deem very easy to hang.

The Big Island of Hawai’i is available on its own or as part of the set. The single island of Hawai’i is available in sizes of 5.6″,  8.75″, 10.75″. When you purchase this sculpture, you will receive the required hanging hardware, and detailed instructions on how the wall sculpture should he hung.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions such as details about the artwork or if you need a set sooner.

    We love our Hawaiian Island Chain work of art! We have it in Koa wood. Couldn’t be easier – ordering the template ahead of time allowed us to visualize and confirm we ordered the right size. Then, installation was only 5 minutes! We were sure installation would be the big challenge. But the template and the design made it a breeze. Love.

Metal Finish Process and Selection

Metal Finishes

Several options are offered for those who are interested in a modern yet time tested metal finish.
Such Hawaii Island Chains are created using modern materials which are manufactured in the USA and the end result is a bonded metal piece which boasts the benefits of a solid cast sculpture–without the weight, cost, or otherwise the burden of such an undertaking.
The surface is approximately 90% metal on the face and edges of the island; the backs of the islands are black, and an entire 68″ size island chain weighs under 12 pounds.

Metal finishes are in Copper, Bronze, Aluminum, & Iron–with additional available on request.

As with most artwork handmade there will be some variances in color, texture, and shine.

However, as one may notice there are numerous photos online of the island chains, and of course–the artist is more than willing to provide photos, and even material samples on request if desired.  Such variances result from the hand mixing of the composite material, the source of the raw materials, the amount of polishing each island receives, and how the patina is applied/removed if such an option is selected.

Materials, Hanging Location, and Care:

Wood should always be hung indoors and not exposed to excessive or long terms spans of high humidity or temperature fluctuations due to the hydroscopic nature of the natural material. Due to their lacquer finish maintenance is not required or suggested.

Metal finish island chains should be kept under cover and away from salt spray–as the wax finish may degrade and allow the bonded metal surface to oxidize. Wax finish is long lasting and should require minimal to not maintenance if kept indoors away & away from salt spray or mist.

 

Please contact the artist if you’re considering putting artwork outdoors or otherwise exposed to the elements.
No guarantee is offered or suggested if a set is hung outside, however, additional finish options, and a maintenance schedule is offered on request.
