Small Glass Vases ‘Root Vase’ by Kingston Glass Studio
These small glass vases have a natural feel. Alexi works his vision here by the organic laying of earthly toned wraps of colour around the vase. This is to reflect the root growth of a tree. Set against a spirited tone the Root Vase has much to admire. These sunken small glass vases will brighten any space in which they reside.

Situated in picturesque downtown Kingston, Ontario, Canada, Kingston Glass Studio. Mariel Waddell and Alexi Hunter set up in their studio in 2006.
Born in Trinidad Mariel Waddell Hunter has spent time in Barbados and Costa Rica. Drawing on these experiences, Mariel uses them as the foundations of her design vision. Her technique looks towards the use of molten, hot glass bit work, which Mariel then sculpts into her vision. Where she aims to capture elements of the ocean’s reefs and currents into her vessels. Mariel’s work is award-winning and private and public collections, in museums across North America and the world.
Mischka Jay “Alexi” Hunter was born on the West Coast of Canada. Venturing around the world, he settled in Eastern Ontario. The natural rural landscape of Kingston and the 1000 islands inspires Alexi, it is a natural draw for him. He enjoys the optical qualities of the glass when engraving, and at the same time obscuring parts of the surface.
“There is something so mesmerizing about working with glass. It allows you to flirt on the edge of beauty and danger. The medium let’s the mind take any shape it desires. It’s easy to get lost in the incandescent, but the heat in the infernal only grants you so much time.” Mischka Jay “Alexi” Hunter.
