Phoenician Glass Candleholder

You will never see a glow like this, ever. Each Phoenician Glass Candleholder is one of a kind. And this one comes with sand from the Holy Land. Phoenician glass blowing is a heritage craft going back thousands of years, creating this range of swirling colors starts with recycled soda bottles that are smashed into pieces, then melted in high-temperature ovens. The molten glass is blown using a steel pipe called a kammasha, while "secret family recipes" elements that are added allow the glass blowers to craft each piece with unrepeatable patterns. Making this your new go-to candleholder for exceptional, one-of-a-kind mood lighting! Phoenician glass-blowing is a Natsheh family tradition at Hebron Glass in the West Bank, passed down through generations. Learning this highly-prized, ancient art takes at least five years of apprenticeship.
