Blown glass Tunisia
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Blown glass

Inherited from the Carthaginians, the art of blown glass achieved its reputation through its marriage with cast iron. Inside a small workshop that could be hidden in a garage, the glass blower manipulates the melting glass with astonishing skill and in a couple of minutes, they stretch, turn and blow up this real ball of fire to make them fit into a cast iron jacket. This is also how the wall lights and lanterns are made, whose translucent surfaces glow after meticulous polishing.
