based in honolulu, hi

fishcake was gifted a ceramic kiln in november 2020 from an honored friend, andrew mau, in exchange that we use it to help the artist community. by the beginning of 2021, we were fortunate to have the assistance of many members of established ceramic institutions for the development of the space + programming. 

fast forward to now, the studio has grown and transformed within one year. director dane nakama and studio manager joy sanchez have expanded on the original founding member's vision to foster a dynamic creative community here in kaka'ako. fishschool satiates o'ahu's hunger for innovative arts education with the help of our many dedicated instructors, members, and volunteers, all while organically cultivating an artist collective that shares values of love and kokua. 


special thanks to:
