Absolutely lovely piece of glass with beautiful artistry. A practical and elegant addition to my home that I will treasure.

Shipped very quickly and safely wrapped to prevent damage. Grey glass is very pretty in person. It's unique and will make a great altar decoration; thank you. :)
The real Ka'ena Point is at the western tip of the island of Oahu. This dramatic lava shoreline is said to be the place where souls of ancient Hawaiians would jump off into the spirit world and meet the souls of their ancestors.
Today, it is a natural area reserve with an ecosystem consisting of endangered seabirds such as the Laysan Albatross, Hawaiian monk seals and native Hawaiian plants. You can still visit this remote and beautiful place by hiking a few short miles.
Growing up on Kauai, spirituality and Hawaiian mythology played a big part in my upbringing and greatly contributed to my artistic style. My Etsy shop is named for this place in honor of the Islands, my culture and heritage.
In Hawaiian, ka'ena means "the heat" and is a connection to how nature makes glass (when lightning strikes sand) and how glass fusing is done (with extreme heat).

I'm a born and raised Hawaiian transplanted and living in Chicago. I studied graphic design/photography in undergrad & my heart lies with all things design. I discovered my love for glass fusing in 2010 and have been creating ever since!
