Award-winning Hawaii artist IRA ONO has been a celebrated creative force in the arts for over 40 years. His mixed media work of recycled wearable art (The Trashface Collection) and ceramic masks are inspired by living in the rainforest of Volcano, Hawaii for over 30 years. His mixed media pieces are in the Hawaii State Museum and in public and private collections throughout the world. His studio and gallery are housed in a 1908 historic estate located one mile from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Thousands of guests from all over the world and seekers of fine arts and Hawaiian crafts visit yearly.
The Ono Ribbon Scarf © and Ono Ear Ribbons © are his newest collection of work. Ira had been using the costly European ribbon to adorn his one-of-a-kind ceramic masks for many, many years. This became the idea behind the Ono Ribbon Scarf and Ono Ear Ribbons. Please visit our other websites to to learn more about the artist and Volcano Garden Arts gallery.
