Discover Blown glass Tunisia

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.
