"WAIKUI : THE MEETING OF TWO WATERS" - Hawai’i State Museum Sculpture Garden, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

in collaboration with Doug Young

Client: Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts
Architect: Group 70 International, Inc.

Technique: Three layers of laminated, airbrushed and painted glass tiles

DESCRIPTION: Retaining a sense of Hawai’i’s first Olympic size pool, Waikui is comprised of two overlaying water images. The bottom is the historic pool and subtle swimming lanes; the transparent top is an ocean water image symbolizing the

meeting of two waters. O’ahu is known for being the "meeting place"; Waikui is an old place name on the Big Island where a sandalwood forest stream once flowed into the ocean.

This was the second project with Peters Studios. We went through many trials of technique and color, and again pulled through with a product beyond our expectations – a first among exterior public art glass commissions.
