A team of glassblowers led by Kitengela Hot Glass founder, British-born glass artist Anselm Croze, create objects like chandeliers, furniture, panels, murals, art, and beads from recycled glass scrap materials. According to the company, they melt 150kg of old glass a day to transform the recycled glass into useful and decorative items.
