I hope you enjoyed our little "photo essay" of our Fine Art Festival which was held on Saturday, September 25, 2010. We were able to raise some funds for the Church of the Pacific's Outreach Program which supports a food pantry and community garden.

Mahalo Nui Loa to Jeni and Phil at Church of the Pacific, those who stopped by for a visit, and all the artists who participated!

Leslie Hagen

Welcome Leslie Hagen to Women Artists of Kauai! Leslie sculpts in clay and is most famous for her masks!

" My favorite thing is making sculptures and masks. Especially if they cause a giggle. Whimsical, funny, humorous, thought provoking and somethings bizarre would be appropriate words to describe my work. In between sculptures and masks I hop on the wheel and get lost in a spinning world. All the pieces in my Etsy shop have been hand sculpted, wheel thrown or a combination of both by me. All one of a kind. They are bisque fired and then glazed fired to cone 6. All the functional pieces are food safe. They can also go in the oven or microwave with care. And they can even go in the dishwasher, but like most things will last longer if hand washed."

Leslie has just finished working on her new website: http://lesliehagen.com/ .
