Julia Malia Cordi

A Hawaii born artist, crafts-person, and educator. In 2010 Julia found a lifelong passion for glass art and has since worked all over the globe pursuing her artistic journey. Her love of natural beauty, efficient design, and science are all combined inspirations in her artwork; whether it’s a study in the optics of glass, or reevaluating form and function as a maker and designer. In her time as a production glass maker at Makai Glass Maui, Julia has not only refined her skills as a crafts-person, but also been given opportunities to develop her skills as a designer and team member in a prosperous company.

Marianne Jensen Lowry

I was born in a small Danish town outside of Copenhagen and grew up on my family's farm. Ever since I could remember I wanted to work with glass.  My education has allowed me to learn various glass techniques ranging from Kosta Glass School in Sweden to a multitude of glass studios around the world including Venice, Hawaii, Japan, Iceland and Seattle. My current work is extraordinarily unique combining kiln formed techniques with hand blown objects.

Meet me at the Four Seasons Resort Maui Wailea artist showcase every Sunday from 8am - 1:30pm.

Christopher Richards

One of the most prolific glassblowers on Maui, Chris works in his studio five days a week, year-round. His ethereal, lifelike jellyfish sculptures are a favorite of visitors to the studio, as well as his life-sized pineapples and many-hued vases, bowls, and platters. As his vision has evolved over the years, he has consistently adhered to high standards of quality and design. "The integrity of the piece is very important to me", he states. "If it’s not quite right, I do it again. Glass endures; it's worth the trouble."  In 2000 Christopher and his long time friend Chris Lowry bought Hot Island Glass where you can purchase his work and watch him create.
