Migration Series

Maui Humpback Whale and Dolphin Splash

Makai’s hand sculpted glass Humpbacks are the ultimate expression of Maui and all its grandeur.

 The Pacific humpback whales migrate annually to give birth in the warm shallow waters surrounding Maui . Their majestic appearance captivates audiences of all ages, alluring one deeper into their wonder and the secrets of the ocean. The artists of Makai feel as blessed and inspired in the presence of these sacred mammals as you do, so they’ve created these magnificent whale sculptures as their contribution back to the beauty they give to each of us. Makai’s whale sculptures are hand sculpted from solid glass, using powdered glass enamels on the surface to give them their realistic appearance.

Makai’s whale breach series incorporate the sculpted whales breaching from solid glass water. These large sculptures can weigh up to 75 lbs and take a team of 7 highly skilled glassblowers to accomplish. When lit from below with Makai’s custom LED light bases, the effect is phenomenal. The light shines through the water illuminating it brightly, while the whale has a more subtle lighting effect.

Makai also makes stationary whale sculptures where the sculpted whale is cradled on a custom steel stand and gives the appearance of it floating above its beautiful Koa or granite base. The whale is removable from the stand but once set in the stand, it is cradled making it impossible to fall out.
