This is a glass factory which recycles glass and turns it into art work, drinking glasses, pitchers, wine glasses etc. The workshop is fun to go visit. The workmanship is beautiful!Address:

If you like glass and the environment this is the place for you. What an extraordinary, quirky, eclectic place to visit. I loved it. From the furnaces and glass blowers to the workers making glass and cement tabletops the treasures here were the people, the glass and the interesting fun art. This was not easy to get to as the roads were quite rutted and primitive. But the trip was well worth it. All the glass that is made is made from recycled glass.Kitengela Glass: more than worth finding

Right 'around the corner' from Rolf's Place, we found 2 interrelated art studios (owned by mother and son respectively) that were more than worth a visit. We were fortunate to be given tours both of the foundry (owned by the son) and the artist's stained glass studio (the mother's bailiwick). They were quite distinct experiences - the foundry created production pieces for the most part but while we were there, they were created a Dale Chihuly-like 10 foot tall chandelier that was just amazing. The mother's studio is another story entirely - ideosyncratic and fabulous - small artworks, stained glass windows, jewely made from tusker bottle caps - we laughed and we bought.
