Sorry all you TripAdvisor reviewers....get your locations straight....this is a place with a small hot lab where they make sloppy junk that they then overprice....come on $25 for a glass turtle? Nothing major here either as they apparently don't have the skill to do any real glass art. And the workbench.....are you kidding me? It was a 6" deep sea... More

Local artists create blown glass creations right in front of your eyes. They are amazing to watch and have a variety of hand made one of a kind items. This is a great stop to pick up something unique. They have something for everyone...from glass key chains, beads, shot glasses, belt buckles, cruets, pendants, door knobs, beautiful earrings and list... More

We didn't really know what to expect when we stopped here. What we found was a very cool, local and functioning glass studio. If you are lucky you can catch an artist working with glass in the kiln, aka the glory hole. I am also fairly certain that all the pieces sold are locally made. It was an unexpected surprise...

Me and my husband thought this place was unique and awesome! Sometimes you can even watch them at work with the glass! So crazy to see the talent of them!

We stopped by this store on our day in Kaapa. They have an amazing assortment of glass decorations, custom home interior items focused around glass, and wonderful jewelry.

This glass gallery is called Kela's A Glass Gallery. Great find of unique fine glass items ranging from color changing jewelry by Mimi to large glass designs. For a tourist area, prices were reasonable as the pieces are quality. Once you make a purchase, you can join their email list and receive sale notices with discount savings. Do stop to... More

Aloha Mary, Thank you for your review please be aware though that we are often confused with Kelas Glass Gallery but are a completely different business very close by. We are The Glass Shack which is a glass studio with live glass blowing vs a gallery. ALL of our products are created inside the studio and no where else which... More

I am art lover. Art is love and you can see that so much love is put into this art studio everyday. I can't believe all the different things they can make out of glass, and custom make anything. Some may say the items are overpriced but I would pay twice as much for a homemade cake vs a packaged... More

I stopped in because I love glass and can never pass up browsing for something to buy. This store sells mainly smaller items but the quality is very good. I was really impressed with the glass medallions. The shop is rather small but it is packed with unusual glass pieces. You won't regret stopping if you are a glass lover... More
