Sands of Time

layers of creation

Swirling water pulled by an ocean current, shifting sand pushed by a desert wind - they are mirrored in this Phoenician glass, an art whose secret has been preserved by one family through generations, even as customs faded and materials became scarce. Like a stack of pages, bound to tell your story, distinctive layers, lines and waves add dimension to your decor.

textures of tradition
