How We Do It

We’ve definitely developed our own style in creating what I call ‘bush glass’, making complicated blown objects, perhaps using Italian colouring techniques to get an effect of stripes, dots, rings or lines in a piece. We’ve also had to learn a way of working somewhat faster because the material we’re handling stiffens so quickly – 'fast glass'. But the results are worth it because each thing we make at Kitengela Hot Glass is unique, and the artisan’s touch is obvious.
