When white light from the sun strikes the oceans surface, wavelengths of color are scattered.

The longer red, orange, yellow, and green wavelengths are absorbed.

The shorter wavelengths of blues and violets remain and it is these colors we most associate with the tropics.

Utilizing transparent color, opaque accents and crystal clear glass we are able to recreate the magic of Polynesia.

While researching the environmental factors that produce these colors, I discovered Polynesian maritime culture.

For centuries Polynesian mariners sailed outriggers on the open ocean hundreds of miles using only stars, waves, birds, fish, clouds, even the taste of the water, to navigate between islands.

Navigation cues were memorized as chants, songs and dances.

Navigators enjoyed higher rank than tribal chiefs because the population depended almost entirely on sea faring and fishing to survive.
