Milo is wonderful to turn due to its soft, fine grain. The even grain makes for excellent cuts.

Multi-award winning wood lathe artist, Kelly Dunn, lives on the north end of the Big Island of Hawaii. He creates bowls, hollow vessels, and art forms full time for art galleries and private collectors.

Kelly specializes in Hawaii's woods. Working with both native and introduced species, he highlights the beauty of each tree. With the raw log, he determines what will showcase that particular piece of wood.

Traditional Hawaiian forms have been a main focus for Kelly. After 30 years, he still considers himself a student of the umeke and calabash. He incorporates traditional patchwork into his work as needed.
