Mariel Waddell & Alexi Hunter
Mariel Waddell “My native islands, Trinidad and Tobago, have always inspired me. I use a combination of thickness and temperature which allows me to create pieces with multifaceted appearance and reflective effects, creating movement in my work. By trailing and sculpting molten bits of glass, I attempt to capture the beauty and essence of water and life within the ocean.”
Alexi Hunter "I thoroughly enjoy the glass blowing process because it combines mental creativity with the physical nature of working hot glass into simple forms, and then altering them with a variety of detail."
Glass artists Mischka Alexi Hunter and Mariel Waddell are co-owners and glass blowers at the Kingston Glass Studio and Gallery and create functional artwork and vessels as well as sculptural works.
