Lee Cataluna: Late master woodturner’s prized bowl gifted for all to enjoy

Kauai-born master woodturner Robert Hamada had a story for every one of his pieces. If you were lucky enough to find yourself in his presence, he might show you a bowl, describe the moment he came upon the fallen tree, point out how the grain of the wood told the tale of every rainy season, storm and drought the tree had known, and maybe let you run your finger along the edge, smooth as skin, hand-polished and radiant.
