Distinctive in spirit and design, Anselm’s studios are not only off the grid in terms of electricity; they’re located on the edge of Kenyan wilderness, a 40-minute drive from Nairobi town centre. Still, people come from all over the world to visit, drawn in by the magical and antique art of glassblowing.
Travel down onto the plains, across rutted roads and scrubland and a ravine, turn at the Zebra Crossing, and you will be transported into another space and time. Step into the Kitengela Hot Glass workshops to discover art as it’s happening, glassware and tableware and homeware. Sip coffee at a funky, chunky mosaic table that creates one of the outdoor sitting rooms. Surround yourself in a secret garden of sculpture and furniture and living designs that enchant and inspire.
Because Kitengela Hot Glass is not just a place or a product; it’s an experience.
