Neighbor Island craftsmen are making a particularly strong showing at this year’s Hawai’i Craftsmen exhibition---half the show is from outside O'ahu. Outstanding examples of glass, wood, fiber, and clay from across the state are on display now at the Honolulu Museum of Art School gallery. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa spoke with the juror, Jo Lauria, about her selections and her impressions of craft in Hawai’i.
