Aha Hana Lima 2019

THE RETURN OF BETH CAVENER

A THREE DAY INTERACTIVE DEMONSTRATION ... FEATURING HER LARGER THAN LIFE FIGURES

Four years ago many of you were treated to an Aha Hana Lima workshop featuring Beth Cavener. Hawai’i Craftsmen is excited to announce the return of Beth Cavener. In a slight departure from our usual Aha Hana Lima format, Beth will treat Hawai’i artists, collectors, and fans to her wildly popular 3-day interactive demonstration of the process and methodology she uses to create her larger than life ceramic sculptures. Using 600 lbs of clay and 25 feet of half inch pipe Beth will, working with the audience, construct one of her larger than life figures. Beth will also go over in detail from start to finish how she created some of her actual past works, including a 6 foot tall double figure piece constructed over the course of five months. Audience members will have the opportunity to try out some of her techniques as she guides members through a hands on exercise in her methods for sculpting an eye.

Beth’s sculptures focus on human psychology, stripped of context and rationalization, and articulated through animal and human forms. On the surface, these figures are simply feral and domestic individuals suspended in a moment of tension. Beneath the surface, they embody the consequences of human fear, apathy, aggression, and misunderstanding.
