Syd Vierra

Woodcraft Artistry

Syd Vierra is a Hawaiian-born artist who comes from a large and extended Hawaiian/Portuguese family.  As many art collectors know, Hawaiian wood products are some of the most beautiful objects of the wood turning art. Part of the reason is the beauty and variety of the woods growing in Hawaii, and part is due to the skill of the individual artist.

Syd has been wood turning since 2001 and has become one of Hawaii’s leading artists. He has developed his own style of art by using aniline dyes that are applied like no one else. Through trial-and-error, Syd produces one of a kind pieces. Syd stay true to his Hawaiian cultural background and is well-known for his traditional Hawaiian forms, such as the ‘Hawaiian calabash’ which can found at the Honolulu Academy of Arts.

We are very happy to be able to share some of Syd’s beautiful wood bowls in the gallery, as each piece is an incredible work which conveys Syd’s passion, craftsmanship and heritage.
