As for this collection, she says, “I enjoy making functional pieces for daily use that are utilitarian as well as beautiful. And I like the immediacy of working with clay, where I can create a piece directly with my hands.”

DeMarco says she’s pleased to be showing her pieces in Puuwai Hao Kila Gallery and enjoys being able to contribute to supporting the arts on Kaua`i.

She says, “I am constantly interested in and influenced by other artists, particularly those who are working in porcelain.”

    I am always excited each time I see another creation by Hope. She amazed me each time Hope produces different forms of pottery .
    Being the sister of my talented sister I could go “on and on” looking at Hope’s creations again and again.
