The Hawaiian Islands Like You’ve Never Seen Them Before.

When we think of the Hawaiian Islands the one that comes to mind for everybody is generally Oahu, because this is the most filmed and photographed of all the islands. Oahu is the third largest of the islands in the chain and is also home to the State Capitol, Honolulu. Of course, no discussion of Oahu would be complete without talking about its luminous beaches, its status as a surfing mecca and its beautiful climate from which many treasures come.

One of these great treasures is the Acacia Koa tree which grows on six of the main Hawaiian Islands, including Oahu, but nowhere else on the planet. Preferring to colonize volcanic soil up to 7500 feet, this species can grow up to 100 feet in height and six feet in diameter. This amazing tree is highly prized and sought after by woodworkers for its unparalleled beauty. With colors ranging from gold to dark brown and everything in between, this wood is as rare and expensive as it is beautiful.


Several Materials and Sizes Offered

Not surprisingly, then, many collectors love to have a memento of their favorite island rendered in Koa wood. Think of a dazzling Koa outline of Oahu in your favorite room, how the light plays off its translucent colors in a way that no other wood can duplicate. Now think of the Hawaiian Island chain rendered in Koa wood; all eight islands created in fine detail and adorning a special place in your life — the complexity of their profiles brought into living relief.

Some of the finest Koa and Mango wood renditions of the islands that are available here sold by the artist directly. Order a single Hawaii island or the entire island chain, size selection for single islands range is 6 inches, 9 inches and 11 inches across and the material does not have to be wood.

Metal Finishes Offered

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 beauty of the islands can be expressed in copper, bronze, iron or an aluminum finish.  Each metal finish island chain is lightweight, easy to hang, and features excellent detail.  Every Hawaiian island will have a metal finish on their edges and face, however, the back of the islands are black, and feature a hand brushed pattern.


Why The Hawaiian Islands?

Hawaii has always created a strong hold on those who visit it. The lure of the islands is so strong that they continually are among the most popular vacation spots in the world. The plush foliage, the array of sand beaches, the calm atmosphere and sense of peace these islands bring simply cannot be duplicated. Hawaii is a true world treasure whose natural beauty fills one’s senses.

Perhaps among the most profound aspects of Hawaii are its active volcanoes, without which the islands could not have come to be. The unique shape and size of each of the Hawaiian Islands in the chain is a direct result of the volcanoes. The lava that created Oahu and the other islands has been pouring out for millions of years and each flow differs in consistency and intensity from one to the next. That such extraordinary beauty comes from such an extraordinarily powerful force only adds depth to the unique mystery that is Hawaii. Like the lava fields of these great islands, no one can visit the same Hawaii twice.


Available in a Range of Sizes

Maui is available on its own or as part of the set. The single island of Oahu is available in sizes of 5.75″,  9″, 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. 

So if you are looking for a way to preserve your Hawaiian (or Oahu!) memories then this may present the ideal option. It is sleek, stylish, and can be tamed to match your color scheme. Bring a little of Hawaii to your home today, safe in the knowledge that your piece was crafted with great care and full dedication.

    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 materials, the source of the raw materials, the amount of hand polishing each island receives, and how the patina is applied/removed if such an option is selected.

Hanging Locations and Care

Wood Hawaii Island Artwork

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. With lacquer finish maintenance is not required or suggested and a burnished oil finish shouldn’t be waxed or recoated.

Bonded Metal Finish Hawaii Island Artwork

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

Wax finish is long lasting and should require minimal to no maintenance if kept indoors away & away from salt spray or mist.

Lacquer Finish

A lacquer finish will degrade slower, however, it is best advised to keep the piece under cover, and out of the elements such as deeply within the recesses of a covered patio or Lani.


Industrial Catalyzed Finish

Designed by a renowned sculpture and metal finish company this finish is resistant to even salt spray. 
This coating takes significant labor to apply, requires additional precautions, and will add 2-3 weeks to the lead time along with a 15% to 30% additional cost.
The finish is only offered on request and additional information is show below. 

Please Specify the Application in the Order Notes!

Regardless of your finish choice the hanging hardware at no charge will be upgraded so it is more corrosion resistant.
Moreover, if you’re unsure of which finish to purchase please feel free to contact us anytime, and you will recieve a prompt & helpful response.

(No guarantee is offered or implied if a set is hung outside, however, additional finish options, and a maintenance schedule is offered on request)


Can I hang your artwork outside under cover?

For an outdoor covered patio or Lani I would recommend a metal finish set as they are relatively inert and will better handle temperature & humidity compared to my wood artwork. Strong wind, constant direct sunlight, and salt spray are other considerations to take into account.
The islands have a resin core and a bonded metal finish on their faces & edges–the surface is sealed with either wax, lacquer, or an industrial catalyzed finish (on request) to prevent oxidization.
All considered the composite/bonded metal surface looks like metal since it’s mostly metal with a binder and therefore once the finish starts to degrade the surface may start to patina/oxidize
If you’re in an environment with no salt spray, relatively dry, and minimal sun/rain exposure then the wax finish should serve you well for a few years with the islands eventually requiring more wax.
However, if there’s some exposure or moisture then a lacquer finish is a consideration and would fair better.

What about salt spray or significant exposure?

In the case of significant exposure and/or salt spray a two part catalyzed finished is highly recommended.
The website shows pricing for both the wax finish and lacquer, however, due to the inherent difficulty in sourcing and applying the two part catalyzed finish there is an additional 15%-30% charge for this process.

How does wax compare to a lacquer or an industrial finish?

If you change from a wax finish to a film based finish it will result in a thicker coating–so more shine will result and the surface will look less “raw” in appearance.
