It’s rather amazing how many inspiring people I’ve met through this blog.
Example: Yoshiro Maruyama. A Ukulele craftsman and artist whose work is nothing short of exquisite.
When I visited the Big Island, I stayed with him, his beautiful wife and two amazing kids, and now feel like I have some close friends. So, I was absolutely honored when he carved me this Koa wood hook to give to my dad (who happens to collect hooks. Big time.)
Fine Art. Friends. Hawaii. Gifts for my Dad. Score.
