These beautiful handblown glasses travelfrom Damascus to Godalming, each one as beautiful as the next.
The glass factory is located in Bab Sharki at the entrance of the Palestinian neighborhood and next to the Christian quarter of Bab Touma in the outskirts of the old city of Damascus.
The glass factory supports a dozen families and work is carried out day and night because the furnace can't be put out (temperature settings require several days of heating before reaching the right level) .
A family business that has existed for two generations. These are amongst the oldest families of glassblowers using a traditional oven with glass that is recycled from Europe.
