About

Making the whole ocean.

Hello! My name is Mariko, I live in Hawaii, and I'm happiest when I'm making something. Here is the story of my shop.

Many years ago, I took a screen printing class and met a cool girl named Ali. We'd have art days and make things just for fun. In 2012, we started an Etsy shop together called Unicorn of the Sea and spent a few happy months bestowing our goofy items on people. One blue day, Ali moved away and to fill the void, I opened my own shop and called it Beachcake.

The name "Beachcake" came about after weeks of brainstorming, listing and mind mapping made two things clear - I love the beach and something delicious. So I put them together. "Beachcake" makes me laugh because it sounds like "beefcake"!

I once told my mom that I wanted to be every animal in the ocean. These days, the ocean keeps me healthy and inspires me with all its variation, color, pattern, design. I want to share that inspiration with others by interpreting what I see thru my style and craft. Right now I work mainly with screen printing and ceramics. I also love paper making and bookbinding, origami, beads, painting, drawing, weaving baskets, quilting.... What I relish most is the making. I make everything by hand, because I enjoy putting in time and effort to create extra special and well-crafted pieces.

Beachcake can be found at craft fairs and boutiques in Honolulu. Follow along on INSTAGRAM @heybeachcake to see my experiments and get notices of new items and sales.

ALOHA!
