Kitengela Hot Glass Studio
The Kitengela Hot Glass studio is located in Kitengela, overlooking the Nairobi National Park, about an hour's drive from Nairobi (depending on traffic). To get to the studio, one has to drive over rutted roads and scrubland, to arrive at the studio, which has a story book feel about it, as if you had stepped into the pages of Hansel & Gretel, or a Grimm's Fairy Tales.
Unique, handmade pieces that are 100% recycled and 100% Kenyan, the products of Kitengela Hot Glass are designed to catch the eye and satisfy the soul.
The magic happens in the red brick dome, which is the heart of the studio, and which has 1000 glass stars set in the ceiling, to mirror the night sky.
The studio creates everything from individual glassware, tableware & homeware to entire collections custom designed for restaurants, hotels, lodges and camps. You can buy these individual items from the shop on site, for a lower price than their retail outlets in Nairobi.
