The furnace roars. The fire blazes and crackles. The temperature inside has reached 1100 degrees Centigrade, perfect for glassblowing.
The red-brick dome was inspired by 15th century Flemish furnace design and by old English beehive glass houses. It is home to the furnace that is the heart of Anselm’s Kitengela Hot Glass creations. With more than 1,000 glass stars inset in the ceiling, accurately mirroring a part of the night sky’s constellation, it is where the magic happens.
