A Whole New HUE

Maui is a world-class destination for a lot of things, but shopping? Not so much.  Sure we have cute little boutiques, and bikini shopping that is noteworthy, but for anything for the home, choices have been pretty limited – that was, until two talented young interior designers saw this void, and have been filling it, with gorgeous pillows, comfy yet stylish couches, handy hostess gifts and much more! Wendy Takemoto and Jessica Guard McLellan decided to open up HUE, a furniture and lifestyle store, and the results?  Well, they’ve been stunning.

maui furniture store best home furnishings“We were designers before we were in retail, and it was never possible to find pieces in our style on-island,” Jessica explained. “We knew other people must also be feeling that need. So we thought rather than ordering from mainland stores, why not open our own?”  And Maui shoppers heartily agreed, voting them Best New Business in 2013 and Best Home Furnishings in 2014 in the Maui Time Weekly’s Best of Maui readers’ poll.

maui furniture store best home furnishingsIn 2012, Wendy and Jessica opened HUE at their original retail and design space on Kahului’s Lalo Avenue.  Not quite two years later, with a good idea of what island shoppers were looking for, Wendy and Jessica jumped at the chance to move to a much larger space in an established location.  They are now located at the former Latitudes, as the anchor for a whole design center, with The Garden, supplying silk flowers, plants and arrangements, by Latitudes’ former purveyors, and Suda Shades, creating custom window treatments.

The new location is approximately 5,000 square feet, triple the size of their former location.  “Our goal is to have the island’s premiere home and lifestyle shop, and this new space brings us one step closer. We now can present an even wider range of carefully curated home and gift items” Jessica continued.  HUE is still Maui’s exclusive dealer for Lee Industries’ furniture, they have added a few new luxury furniture lines, including Lexington and Palecek, and have brought in some more affordable options as well. HUE is constantly adding to their inventory to offer fresh pieces for shoppers, with containers arriving monthly, and smaller shipments arriving even more frequently.

We love seeing other shops in cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, North Carolina… It’s just good to see stores that aren’t ALL rattan and tropical.”

In addition to offering what’s trending across the country, HUE offers many locally made items including bags by True Story Company and Tiger Lily, compass watches by Pandeia, body products by Queen Bee Productions, jewelry by Kachi, Sophie Grace Maui, Jasmine Honey Designs and Salty Luxe Hawaii, pillows by BlueJane Maui, and eco-friendly wrapping paper by Wrappily. Featured Maui-based artists include Abigail Romanchak, Robert Suzuki and Dane Ward.

According to HUE’s Sales and Marketing Manager, Birgitte Golden, giving back to the Maui community is an important part of the business as well. “We sponsor and donate to many non-profit events, and even assist event design, like at the Pacific Cancer Foundation’s Kama’aina Christmas for the past two years. We also participate in other fundraisers, like the Lee Industries’ Lee Loves America campaign, with a portion of sales going to a local non-profit.” Birgitte continued that, “another great aspect of HUE is that it is locally-owned and operated – Aloha is engrained in who we are, and all customers are met with a down-to-earth, no pressure attitude.” All five team members are born and raised in Hawaii. In addition to Wendy, Jessica and Birgitte, the team includes Design Associate Heather Guard and Warehouse Manager Chris Auna.

Wendy and Jessica also offer professional services including residential and commercial interior design, kitchen and bath design, architectural computer renderings, and more.  Appointments are recommended for design services.

As I chatted with Wendy and Jessica about their new space, I asked what they’ve learned so far in their foray into retail, and what surprises have come up along the way. “Our eyes have really been opened to how shipping affects the costs of goods,” explained Wendy.  “Also, people sometimes don’t fully understand that we are on an island in the middle of the ocean…things take longer to get here, and cost a little more.  As Jessica shares, “mainly, retail is a lot of work. And it’s a different beast in this era with online shopping, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram….it takes a lot more to stay ahead of the game, but these are also very powerful marketing tools if you know how to use them.”

Maui Dad – Apparel featuring Art and Heart

When Laurence Muleh’s daughter was born, she not only brought joy and love into his family, but a new business idea.  The artist and Maui High School art teacher was inspired to start his clothing line, Maui Dad, which celebrates parenting, fatherhood, and our sacred island.  Recently launched in December of 2013, they currently offer six designs on raglan tees (baseball style tees) and youth trucker hats.  And- as Laurence shares his story below – its not always about what you get with a business, but what you give back.

“As an ecstatic new father and a local high school art teacher, I created a series of drawings that illustrated our ohana’s (family’s) tradition of touching foreheads to express our love. In a Maui-based art studio, we lovingly screen-printed each of these drawings by hand on a variety of apparel and our family business, Maui Dad, was born. We take great care to make our products as locally, ethically and sustainably as possible. We are expanding our line by creating more designs, creating infant and toddler hats, and working on our adult apparel.

maui dad shirt children keiki“We are very grateful to have been welcomed into five wonderful boutiques across the island. According to our stores, our apparel line has been well received by both locals and visitors alike. Additionally, we were very honored to be featured on the Papa Page in the current issue of Maui Mama Magazine. As a teacher and a nurse, my wife and I have always dedicated our lives to being  part of our community, which is why we decided that while we grow our business we want to connect with local non-profits in our community so that we can grow together.  We believe that if we can weave the fibers of our business into the fibers of our community we can not only contribute to the local economy, but more importantly we can contribute to helping directly effect the lives of our neighbors.

“We began this mission of community involvement by reaching out to the Friends of the Children’s Justice Center of Maui, an organization that supports children of abuse and neglect in Maui County.  On May 3rd, Whole Foods Market Maui has graciously offered to host Maui Dad so that we can use our business to help raise money for the FCJC. At this event we plan on offering our standard apparel line as well as new adult and mom-themed apparel in anticipation for Mother’s Day.

“We will also have a booth at the upcoming Haiku Hoolaulea and Flower Festival on April 12 and will be sharing a portion of those proceeds with the FCJC.  We are thrilled about the partnership we’ve formed with FCJC and can’t wait to begin using our conscience and lovingly made local products to support their important mission.

maui dad shirt drawing art custom“Since connecting with the FCJC, we have found another local non-profit called FIT (Fatherhood Involvement Team).  I was able to connect with the director of the program and I was truly moved by what they do.  They recognize the important role that fathers play in the healthy development of children and are committed to providing services to fathers, including teen dads, and dads that are in the Maui Community Correctional Center. As a business built on the celebration and joy of fatherhood, I would be proud to offer support to this organization towards helping men become better fathers.”

Maui Open Studios – February 2014

Over 85 Maui-based artists and artisans open up their studios and exhibition spaces to show and sell their work during the 4th Annual Maui Open Studios, taking place on three weekends in February 2014.  The public can personally connect with the artists, something that doesn’t always happen in a gallery setting, and in some cases, the artists will even be giving live demonstrations. The entire event is free to the public.

Guidebooks are also available throughout the duration of the event at various locations around the island, which are listed on www.MauiOpenStudios.com. Visitors then design their own self-guided tours for each weekend of the month, either by referring to their printed guidebook or our online artist directory at www.MauiOpenStudios.com.

History of the Event: 

The Annual Maui Open Studios Event is the first of its kind in the state of Hawaii and was created 4 years ago by a former Maui artist who now resides in the San Francisco Bay Area. The mission of MOS is to connect the art community with art-lovers on Maui. Since it’s inception, the event has featured over 85 artists every year and generated over 6,000 individual studio visits by art collectors and art enthusiasts each year. $100,000 in art sales made directly between art-collectors and artists have been generated by the event each year since it’s creation.

The event is produced and organized by acclaimed fine art photo collage artist and former art gallery owner on Maui and Oahu, Carolyn Quan. She is now based in the San Francisco Bay Area after living in Hawaii for 9 years, while continually remaining connected to the islands and serving the art community there.

About Art Project Paia and Founder Tatiana Botton:

Art Project Paia, located at 77 Hana Hwy (Paia, Maui, Hawaii), near Flatbread Co., was founded by Tatiana Botton as a multidisciplinary gallery that offers a fresh and contemporary perspective to the art shown on Maui.  Art Project: Paia represents up and coming and established international, mainland and local artists with a distinct Hawaiian sensitivity. Works of photography, painting, collage, drawing, sculpture and ceramics will be presented throughout the year at group shows.

Founder of WipFlash and Women Make the World Go Round and owner of Art Project: Paia, Tatiana has won many photography award competitions such as the Advertising Photographers of America, International Photography Awards, Prix de la Photographie de Paris, Women In Photography International, Black and White Spider Awards, and The Photography Master Cup.

Featured Artists –  Women Make the World Go Round

Photographer Sharon Johnson-Tennant, a self-defined “purist, who doesn’t manipulate, crop or change anything,” presents her stunning “Reflections on Water Lilies.” Kari McCarthy, one of Maui’s preeminent colorists who is “passionate about visual phenomena,” brings to the show her atmospheric and luminous landscapes. Mixed media artist Kathy Sakai, also Maui-based, presents her artistic explorations in color, shape and texture.

Christine Weir’s series of airport graphite drawings add geometric elements as well as tiny detailed markings to her subjects, creating fascinating space compositions. Elizabeth Mauceli’s acrylic ink with paper collages explore how physical alteration creates and transforms our experience through abstraction.

Christine Caldwell’s mastery of darkroom printing is patent in her “Illuminated Negatives,” dramatic representations of objects found in nature defined by skeletal proportions and emblazoned with neon color. Born in Florida and raised in NYC, Heather Boose-Weiss’s mystical and mysterious self-portrait landscapes, rendered in black and white silver gelatin, explore the relationship between form, presence and place, and what happens in a natural setting when a human enters the scene.

Los Angeles-based Mallory Morrison’s imaginary spaces are dreamlike and ethereal. Inspired by her own dreams, Morrison’s waterworld focuses on feelings of being lost and out of control, utilizing weightlessness to tell stories which explore the depths of space and composition. Lisa Bartleson’s abstract light compositions are conceptualized experiments on the pure gradations of color that are mostly influenced by the ambient light she experienced growing up in a small beach community in Washington State.

Ceramist Moye Thompson’s connection to the land — to dirt, mud and clay — comes from growing up in a farm in Alabama. Her cigar boxes and wire bottle series combine seemingly contradictory materials like clay, chicken wire, words and definitions cut from dictionaries and found objects of all kinds to create playful and surprising sculptures.

Andaz Maui Features Padilla Designs Restoration

Maui Sculpture at Andaz Maui at Wailea

This past Labor Day weekend was a three-day holiday for many on Maui, but not for the employees of the just-opened Andaz Maui at Wailea.   The hotel, which is Hawaii’s first LEED-certified resort, has 297 guest rooms and suites, including seven villas with two to four bedrooms.  The resort will eventually feature two full-service restaurants: Ka’ana Kitchen, which is already open, and Morimoto Maui, by Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto. The resort is located at the site of the former Renaissance Wailea Beach Resort, which closed in 2007.

maui fish hook natural lava rockUpon entry to this ultra-chic property, guests will be greeted by a sculpture whose story demonstrates all the values of the Andaz Maui in one truly unique piece – the restored sculpture of the Hawaiian demi-god Maui, who is credited with raising the islands from the ocean floor with his fish hook.

Originally done by an artist in the late 1970‘s, the piece was going to be recycled, as it was in pretty bad shape after sitting on the oceanfront lawn of the Stouffers Hotel for the last 30 years.  Kainoa Horcajo, the Cultural Director for the Andaz, called on the master metal smiths at Padilla Designs to bring the statue back to life, and set about the task of finding a fitting new home for the 9 foot, 1200 pound sculpture.

andaz maui metal artwork

The new lei poo made from handcut copper maile leaves.

Padilla Designs rebuilt the hands and feet out of steel plate, sculpted a new Lei Poo around his for head out of hundreds of hand cut copper maile leafs. They also created a copper fish hook embedded in a natural lava rock as well as a sculpted copper rope link it all together.  The entire statue was then highlighted and clear coated to bring out the saturation.   Kaleo Padilla of Padilla Designs is “thrilled to see Maui resurrected to live another lifetime at the front entrance to the luxury Andaz Maui at Wailea.”

Kainoa Horcajo shared his thoughts on the statue of Maui and “my hopes for its use and integration into a larger, place-appropriate, totally Andaz front art piece:

Maui the demi-god, often called Mauiakalana, Mauiakamalo, and Mauiakamai, is the progenitor of humanity in these islands.  He is the archetypal ancestor and the embodiment of positive, uplifting values that place the good of the community over the desires of the individual.  Maui slowed the sun, lifted the sky, obtained the secret of fire, and raised the islands from the ocean.  It is this deed of raising the island from the ocean that we want to honor and highlight.

Early on in the process of creating the Andaz Maui at Wailea, the general manager Michael Stephens called me about working on a project to create a fictional story about a Japanese man that sailed across the sea and landed on the beach fronting our resort in a past time.  This man, Hyato, fell in love with a Hawaiian woman and together they created a family and built a home for them and their friends.  This home they built is the Andaz Maui at Wailea.  We used the story and the elements of it to inform bits of our design, our hiring process, and many of the details of the resort.  The characters are built around Andaz values and Hawaiian values and help us better understand who we are and why we do what we do.

Just as our mythical ancestor Hyato raised the islands from the sea by traveling Eastward into the rising sun and landing on Mokapu beach, we envision this property and building as our home that was created to house our ever-growing family.”

Rick Strini – Art that Illuminates

blown glass chandelier by maui artist rick strini

The Jungle Chandelier

Rick Strini was one of the first artists to revive the age-old tradition of Italian-European glass blowing and bring it to the backyard studio movement of the 60’s.  After years of successful achievements in the art glass field, Rick moved into art glass lighting, designing “Art that Illuminates”.  In addition to being a master glass blower, Rick has been traveling the world, analyzing glass factories and studios as a glass consultant.

Rick is about to celebrate 50 years as a glass blower.

Maui Made: How did you get started with glass blowing? 

Rick Strini: I saw a teacher friend doing it and since I was already into pottery at the time, it seemed like a natural extension to go for.  My teacher friend had me build a potter kiln to fire my pots first before teaching me how to build a glass kiln.

MM: How did you end up on Maui?

RS: I’ve been coming back and forth since I was 14 years old. In 1978, I sailed here in a trimaran that I built, and went around all the islands and back to Santa Cruz. I’ve been here now full time the past 14 years.

MM: Your work has taken you around the world but you still call Maui home, what is it about Maui that you enjoy?  

RS: The water sports, and now kite surfing big waves.

MM: You are now offering your services as a glass consultant – what does that mean?

RS: My services and expertise are for hire.  I recently went to China to study a glass factory and analyze their problems and tell them how to make it more efficient.  I  also consulted on a studio in India.

MM: You got a lot of exposure when your chandelier was featured in the Hawaii remodel of Extreme Makeover Home Edition- how did that happen?

RS: I was contacted through my alliance with Forecast Lighting, and the then VP Brian Hart, by Michael Moloney the designer.  They were featuring a Hawaii home and they thought it would be good to have something made in Hawaii.  The uniqueness of my craft led them to film me working and it was edited into the show and became a hit.

Extreme Makeover Home Edition Hawaii Glass Chandelier

The Pololena Chandelier, created for Extreme Makeover Home Edition – Hawaii House

MM: What are some of your most popular products? 

RS: My Jungle Chandelier (photograph on top of post),  the Pololena (as featured on Extreme Makeover Home Edition- the above photo), Stemware, Lily vases, and Art nouveau work.

MM: What do you enjoy about the challenges of glass blowing?  

RS: The challenges in the glass is that its always moving and requires total control.  I have spent 50 years practicing the art of manipulating the glass on the blowpipe and am now considered a Master.

MM: You stay up to date on the latest technology with lighting, LED, etc, what are the challenges with creating light systems?   Does the new technology make it easier to combine with glass?  

RS: The lighting has numerous challenges including the color rendition of the glass to the light and making sure that the colors in the glass do not change and are represented accurately when you put the light to it.  Now with the new challenges of energy efficiency and LEDs in to the market it allows for major creativity that wasn’t possible before because of the “heat” of the incandescent bulbs.  Also the size, the small size of the LED can be hidden much easier as to not take away from the value of the art glass.

The biggest thing was the balancing of the gas in the LEDs to a richer more balanced Kelvin scale and color rendition.  The old Tube lights were a value of 4500K to 6000K and that was a real “grey” appearance and quite annoying. The new colors are down into the 2000k range which is closer to “white” and true color.   With the advancing technology even the LEDs are becoming more and more efficient and energy wise and well as cost effective.  Newer LEDs are even now more dimmable and come with very efficient diffusers to spread the light more effectively.

Red and Orange Glass Chandelier

The Pele Chandelier is made of 1000 pieces and is seven feet long.

MM: Where can people see and buy your work on Maui? 

RS: The pieces are available for sale at Dolphin Galleries and Maui Ocean Center, and I have pieces on display at Porto Restaurant in Maalaea, Mama’s Fish House and Milagros Restaurant in Paia.   People can also make an appointment to come by our Haiku studio

Porto Maui Art Glass artist Hawaii

Strini’s art glass and lamps on display at Porto Restaurant in Ma’alaea

MM: Can you offer any tips for artists looking to turn a hobby/passion into a career? RS: Follow your passion, be smart, and just do it.

Mahalo to Rick Strini for taking some time to help spread some ‘light’ on his amazing work, and congratulations on 50 years!

Want to see more? Besides offering custom pieces, there are many pieces available for sale on his website, including Chandeliers, Ceiling Lamps, Jellyfish Lamps, Lily Vases (Jack in the Pulpit), Glass Pumpkins, and urns.
