Hap Sakwa

Hap Sakwa (Born December 6, 1950) is an American sculptor and commercial photographer. In the 1970s and 1980s, he was a leader in the modern wood turning movement that revolutionized the craft, elevating it to an art form creating narrative sculptural objects using polychromed woods and found objects. From 1988 until 1993 Sakwa turned another artistic corner producing a series of pop art mosaic assemblages using juxtaposing Americana imagery, word play and bright colorful patterns in ceramic tile. 1994 he turned his attention to photography becoming one of the country's most distinguished jewelry photographers with images featured on the covers and in editorial compositions of leading books and periodicals regarding the art and craft jewelry.
