"A good teacher protects his pupils from his own influence."
- Bruce Lee
This is not a smirk. Gordon K. Uyehara was born and raised in Hawaii. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. After thirteen years in the information technology field, he decided to take some time off for artistic exploration. It was then that he made the thrilling discovery of silver clay in a local workshop.

Still residing in Honolulu, Gordon is a freelance artist/designer and an Art Clay Silver Senior Instructor. Working with silver clay led him to reconnect with an attraction to small scale design and wearable art. His motivation is to create pieces that are familiar and yet interestingly seductive and to explore the outer design limits of this relatively new art form. He is gradually incorporating traditional jewelry making techniques into his work as he learns them.

Inspiration for his creations arrives from nature and from the visual and performance artists he admires. Gordon actively participates in local, national, and international juried exhibitions.

This Honudream Web site, displays my current creations and some older works. The turtle and world on its back logo is based on a native american creation myth. It surfaced in my consciousness one morning before I learned of the story.

As an artist, the best thing you can do is wake up dreaming.
