This luminous shell dish shines its brightest at the intersection of nature and nurture. A natural luana shell has been coated with resin pigmented black as night, and carved by hand again to reveal the pearly body of the sea. Luana means happiness and pleasure, and that is the spiritual matter with which to fill this dish. Use it to hold precious tokens, meaningful fortunes, nourishing lathers, or something fleeting like a flower.
We found this treasure at the Gallery of Great Things in Kamuela Hawaii. This diverse gallery opened its doors over 30 years ago and currently represents over 200 local artists. This dreamy dish measures just 8 x 5 x 1.5 inches and originates from shallow seas yet its depth traces a lifetime spent in the sand and the clouds.
