Robin Clark

Robin Clark is a semi-retired medicinal chemist who moved to Kauai from California in 2001. He has subsequently pursued his long dormant interest in woodworking and makes bowls, jewelry boxes, and indoor and outdoor furniture. His woodshop in Lawai is solar (photovoltaic) powered and has been featured in American Woodworker Magazine. He works with native and non-native woods which are available in abundance from his tree-trimming friends. Much of his work is donated to fund-raising events for local charities.

In his woodturning he concentrates on functional bowls and platters, letting the wood speak for itself without embellishment off the lathe.
