Makai's Hot Shop and Studio is Maui's HOTTEST and LARGEST New Glassblowing Attraction!
The next visit you make to the Hawaiian Islands be sure to include an afternoon at the newly established Makai Glass Studio and Gallery! We are located among pineapple fields in beautiful Upcountry Maui, across the street from Bev Gannon's award-winning Hali'imaile General Store Restaurant. Finally you can witness Justin, Randy and the rest of Team Makai creating exquisite blown glass in their very own hot shop! Watch them turn 2200F hot molten glass into sculptures of waves, dolphins, whales, Lava Vases and Maui Storms right before your eyes!–some weighing up to 150lbs! You'll be mesmerized for hours watching the flames, the fire, and the amazing talent and hard work of Team Makai.
Team Makai is making EXTRAORDINARY glass pieces in their new studio but this is only the beginning! We now have a beautiful new glass gallery that is full of our pieces and open for you to explore. Visit our new gallery and be awed by glass sculptures of Maui's most prized inhabitants and land formations. Then sit back and relax in our illumination room as our pieces come to life over our high intensity LED light bases.
Our vision is to have several stations for glass blowing, a public viewing area along with an upperdeck VIP viewing area, and a gallery for purchasing...but for now you can stop in Monday – Friday to say hello and watch them work their magic towards making this dream come true! The pieces you see them make here will be part of their dazzling glass display at their next craft show or onsite in their new gallery.
