Courtney Puig and her wheel of magic

About a  year ago I got a fantastic chance to get to know some very talented artists of Kauai. While seeing them bringing their art into the world, one bold idea has sparkled in my mind. I wanted to grab my camera and document these passionate people being artist: fully engaged in their work, giving all their soul and body for the sake of art.

So the journey began.  I couldn’t even imagine how many wonderful artists I'll meet on this path, how open-hearted they are, and how enchanting and unique are their stories. 

Today you’ve got a special invitation from very gifted potter Courtney Puig who kindly agreed to open the door to her studio, so we can witness the marvelous process of creating and coloring mugs and pots, and become her accomplice in this pure magic!
