I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at the price. Part of making this project doable was getting it made where we can price it reasonably.

The Mystery Girl is the first design, the bowl she is holding is the second. It is a small version of the original 1957 Mystery Bowl, and will be available for sale by itself.

The next project is also Mai-Kai related. If you have been to the Mai-Kai, I am sure you remember this lady from Molokai:

Coming soon!

Ah yes. Remember her, know her, love her... Can't imagine how she's going to sit upright without tipping over though Tim.



Oh, and nice looking bowl! I'm intrigued by the two-piece design. Get it in the gift shop and let Hazel sell it!!

Is Hazel still there? I heard she retired.

Yes, they will look good in the gift shop. We expect to have them styrofoam packed in a full color box for easy shipping and taking home on the plane.


Here is the 3rd or 5th or 9th sketch we did for the project. This is where it started to take its final form.

I hadn't heard about Hazel retiring. Maybe so. Lord knows she deserves it. I haven't been there since last Hukilau and can't remember if I saw her or not, so I'm a little out of the loop.

An update on the sculpt. The lei has been reworked to be more like the real thing. Hope to have a casting inside of the month!

i'm curious to know how you're going to get that out of a mold with all those different undercuts on the lei.

it's a great sculpt.

We have one of the most talented artist and craftswomen in the country helping! It will be difficult, but she says it is indeed possible.

Did I mention that this is a 2 part project?

The mini version of the Mystery Bowl that you see in the images is actually being sculpted as a separate piece. We will not just be making the Mystery Girl bowl, but also making this small version of the Mystery Bowl as well! You can have the Mystery for one!

It will be glazed to match the original 1956 version of the Mystery Bowl.


Getting closer!
