Hebron Glass Candle Holders

45.00

A colourfully luminescent way to add candlelight to your home. Recycled bottles are smashed into pieces and melted in high temperature ovens to produce these highly individual candle holders with their distinctive swirls. 

In Phoenician glass blowing, artisans add substances to the molten glass, with the resulting reaction creating a range of colours. It takes a true master to transform recycled glass bottles into functional works of art. Phoenician glass is made with a secret process that has been passed down through generations to create the signature swirl. Ensuring that each piece is completely one-of-a-kind.

Hebron Glass artisan

Established in 1920, Hebron Glass is a family business located in the historic West Bank city of Hebron, well-known for its traditional glass-blowing. Hebron Glass operates three main workshops in Hebron, in addition to artisans who work in their own homes. Some 60 artisans, women and men, work with Hebron Glass, earning excellent income and benefiting from safe working environments. One of the aims of the group is to build lasting relationships with fair trade associations. Hebron Glass aims to keep their artisans busy throughout the year, despite the challenges of occupation and war, and the competition from China. All tabletop items created by Hebron Glass are lead-free and safe to use. The group uses recycled glass, but only from drinking glasses and heated to high temperatures to sanitise them.
