An instant conversation-starter, this set of 2 mouth-blown decorative baubles stemmed are handmade with recycled glass by artisans at one of only 2 glass blowing factories left in Hebron, Palestine. Each bauble has its own personality, marble pattern, matt finish, and seascape of swirling blues, white, and green waves. It's taken over 30 years to perfect these colour combinations, how incredible is that?

The creation of Hebron glass dates back to the 14th century. It's a tradition that's been passed down for generations along the west bank, each glassworker learning the art of Phoenician glass from revered master craftsmen. This ancient glass-blowing tradition almost disappeared, but the glassworkers at Hebron Glass have revived it, using recycled glass to create glass that fuses together ancient and contemporary art.

These handcrafted baubles might become your new family heirlooms (they make amazing wedding gifts too).
