Believe it or not, but this timeless, statement vase is handcrafted from 100% recycled glass. One of sixty artisan glassworkers at Ngwenya Glass in eSwatini has mouth-blown this classic glass vase into a mould, focussing all his care and attention on this single piece as it's crafted. Each vase is a one-off, with slight variations due to each piece being entirely handmade.

This handcrafted glass vase might become a new family heirloom. Imagine it filled with crisp, white lilies, or overflowing with tumbling ivy.

Ngwenya Glass

This unique story unfolded in 1979. A glassblowing factory called Swazi Glass Craft (trading as Ngwenya Glass) was set up as a Swedish Aid Project, employing and training Swazi’s in the age-old art of glassblowing. These days, they employ over 60 skilled glassblowers to create original pieces of art and train the apprentices.

Ngwenya Glass isn’t only an inspiring success story – it’s an environmentalist’s dream. The products (ranging from tableware to jugs and quirky glass animals) are all crafted from 100% recycled glass. And where do they find all this glass, I hear you ask? From waste soft drink bottles, gathered from every corner of Swaziland.
