The CGS Online Exhibition of Kitengela Glass, Kenya

Welcome to the CGS Online Exhibition of Kitengela Glass in Kenya.

CGS wanted to explore and share with you, the diverse and colourful world of glass that has been created by the artists at Kitengela Glass in Kenya.

Kitengela Glass, a long time neighbour to Nairobi National Park, is described as a hidden gem. Prior to entering, a myriad of sculptures, glass art, and variety of animals will welcome you along the rough and wildly entertaining road to “Nani’s” Kitengela Glass.

Kitengela Glass was founded in 1981, by Nani Croze, and provides a lively training center for over fifty artisans receiving on-going training and/or employment in various artistic disciplines. In addition to helping individuals make a living through their artistic abilities, Nani is committed to maintaining the natural landscape by planting trees, promoting renewable energy sources, and limiting waste.
Additionally, Nani and her husband Eric are strong supporters of access to education for all individuals. This involves funding and promoting grant programs for children’s school fees, as well as providing space and guidance for adults in need of literacy training.

We hope you enjoy this exhibition. If you would like to support or contribute towards Kitengela’s educations efforts, please contact Nani at Nani@Kitengelaglass.co.ke and www.kitengelaglassart.com
