Blowing recycled glass



Science, skill, art and engineering combine in the hands of glassblowers.

Incorporating the techniques of maestro blowers from around the world, Kitengela Hot Glass’s artisans have developed their own uniquely Kenyan style of working.

Skills absorbed from the talents of the Czech Republic, the UK, Romania, Finland, the U.S.A or the Netherlands are a collaborative process.

The Kenyans teach the visitors how to operate in very basic and difficult conditions with the unforgiving medium of window glass, while picking up tricks & tips from them in exchange.
