This piece is a collaboration between Scuba Tom and and Abe Kowitz. Scuba Tom captured the stunning photograph of a wave breaking at Poipu Beach, and Abe handled the wood craft, selection, and transfer process. The blues in this piece come through beautifully, which is tricky to achieve with photos transferred onto wood.
This piece measures approximately 8" H x 10" W and is on Kauai grown Koa Wood.
Abe Kowitz is a local photographer that transfers his photographs onto Kauai grown wood. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind pairing between the photograph and the unique piece of wood he chooses for it. Although photographs may be used more than one time, no two pieces are the same due to the characteristics, tone, and texture of the wood he uses.
We recommend treating these photo transfers like you would a cheese board or nice furniture. Periodically oil the piece with a conditioning oil, such as Howard's Feed and Wax. Apply directly to the artwork with a soft cloth.
