Hot Island Glass Studio & Gallery
Located on Baldwin Avenue in the art and rodeo town of Makawao in Maui, the Hot Island Glass Studio is owned by artists Chris Richards and Chris Lowry. The tiled floor, white walls, and shadow box shelves offset the glass works of art that range in size from paperweights and jewelry to larger sculptures. The art often reflects the island itself, with pieces curved like waves to jellyfish "captured" in glass and vibrantly colored pineapples and shells. Demonstrations, with four to five artists working at the furnace, begin at opening time.
