Collecting Coco Joe's of Hawaii Legends in Lava

Coco Joe's was located in Punaluu Hawaii was a maker of Lava based resin souvenirs sold in Hawaii. The company was started in the 1950s and was at its peak in the late 1960s, and continued through the 1970s, and into the 1980s before going out of business. The original company is long out of business. The Coco Joe's black resin pieces were made from lava. The lava from the Hawaiian Islands was pulverized and mixed in with the resin to create these works of art that the tourist just loved to take back home as souvenirs.

You can see another angle of the dining room here. I have extruded the mural from the archives photo, and cut it into 3 pieces to show the complete mural with ‘relative’ accuracy, though it is unfortunately in black and white. I would be very curious to learn if better colour images of the complete mural exist somewhere, and I do not know who the artist would have been I now know who the artist was - see below! I presume the mural is dated 1955 or thereabouts - close!

It was 1957! In 1953, a man named Bob Mills purchased eight black velvet paintings by Edgar Leeteg in Honolulu.

William Westenhaver - The Primitive Modern

Tiki temples and Polynesian-themed bowling alleys, golf courses, television shows and pop music saturated the land from coast-to-coast. But strangely enough, Tiki’s presence was still largely missing from the ultimate mid-century sanctuary: the American home . That would soon change with the mass production of primitive décor and home furnishings that made it possible for Americans to finally bring Polynesia right into their own living rooms. Tiki’s ultimate triumph was due largely to cartoonist and artisan William Westenhaver. A would be graphic designer and painter, Westenhaver studied at the Art Center School of Design in Los Angeles during the late 40s. Westenhaver was no stranger to it either, having visited Melanesia during his time in the Navy. Yet it wasn’t until the late 50s that Westenhaver would finally be able to fuse his own modernist artistry with the native kinds he had observed.
