The inspiration for William Yeoward’s new collection for American Bar is Palmyra Atoll, which is to be found in the Pacific Ocean about 1000 miles south of Hawaii. Although Palmyra is technically uninhabited, for the past 15 years it has been maintained as a Research Center for the study of the marine environment, in particular the pristine coral reefs and sea turtles that abound on Palmyra. This research helps to provide the information needed by those specialists who are working throughout the world to preserve the marine life and coral reefs of our beautiful planet Earth. William Yeoward strongly supports this work and will make a donation from the sale of each piece of this new collection to help fund research. Color : Clear Collection : Palmyra

All these pieces had to satisfy Tim and William’s sense of design and their desire that the ...
