Emiliano Achaval Interview:
My studio is located near the town of Makawao, in the heart of Upcountry Maui, The Valley Isle. Visitors are welcome. Contact me for an appointment. I always have finished pieces available for sale.
The windfall Koa wood that I use comes from the slopes of the extinct volcano Haleakala, “The House of the Sun”
I create one of a kind native Hawaiian woods turned lathe art. Koa Calabashes, salad bowls, lidded hand chased threaded boxes, hollow forms, urns, custom orders.
Working closely with customers is a lot of fun, call me to talk about designing your “family heirloom” work of art.
I sign all my pieces with a wood engraver with KEA, Katie & Emiliano Achaval. Katie is my wife, my biggest supporter and critic, my work is a group effort, I would not be here writing this if it wasn’t for her. Currently there is a waiting list for my pieces. Call me to discuss a timeline. Aloha!
