Our name, MAKAI
The name "MAKAI" is Hawaiian and was chosen for its meaning, "toward the sea" or "ocean side". It's symbolic to the Artists because of their attraction to the island of Maui and their adoration of its mystical sea life and wave formations. It also incorporates the idea of movement, flow and reflection, which are all characteristics of glass and its evolution from hot molten lava-like fluid to the smooth, perfected piece you see today. Justin and Randy want you to feel drawn "toward their sea" of glass art, as one is drawn to the mysteries and beauty of the ocean.
