While waiting for the General Store Restaurant to open up for dinner, we discovered this place across the street. The variety and quality of the glass work was really something. The degree of detail in the work really shows.

We try to stop in each year and see what is new. We have a few pieces from the artists. We stumbled upon this place a few years ago. It's fun and memorizing watching them blow glass. It's a little spendy, but will last a...More

Absolutely stunning pieces! Extremely pricey though. Didn't get to see any glass blowing, but enjoyed looking at the completed pieces.

They have very unique glass pieces.The glass blown waves are unique. The galley over the where you can watch the glass blowers is fascinating. Close to two Maui attractions so it is definitely worth the drive. Across the street from Hali’imaile General Store.
