Factory Making Decorative Glass Objects
Makai Glass is a factory and showroom and distribution center where you can watch the production from a viewing gallery. It’s at 903 Haliimaile Road in the tiny town of Haliimaile (north of Makawao), right across the street from the Haliimaile General Store. Phone 808-419-6685.
There are other glass blowing facilities on Maui, but none like this one. Only here at Makai Glass is there an elevated viewing gallery where you can look down on the glass blowers and their furnace, while they melt and blow and shape and produce their decorative glass products. They are open from 11 AM to 6 PM every day, with glass blowing usually taking place Monday through Friday, but call ahead to make sure they will be working in the viewable production area on the day and time that you plan to go.
In addition to the large viewing platform, the display galleries at Makai Glass are also larger than at any other glass production places on Maui. You can look at (or buy) numerous colorful and beautiful glass works of art, many of which have ocean themes such as waves, shells, lava, storms, whales, dolphins, stingrays, and turtles. They are available in all sizes and colors and a wide range of prices.
Makai glass artists can even come to you at other locations on Maui, and do glass-blowing demonstrations at large parties or events.
