Blown glass chandelier
Every item of the Artiquea’s lights collection has been carefully selected from Artiquea’s specialists for its outstanding quality and rarity.
Artiquea always makes sure that every precious piece of its collections is sold at the best price in the market.
Dimensions are all approximate. The hand-crafted nature of the pieces means Artiquea cannot guarantee the exact size of each light, although each piece will only vary slightly.
The craft of glass-blowing was invented in Syria during the first century and is a tradition carried on to this day. Glass is collected from across the city and separated by colour before being crushed washed and melted down.
To ensure the purity of the glass only one colour of glass is worked with at a time, with the artisans working around the clock using a furnace which is never allowed to burn out creating exquisite baubles, spiral disks and vases, many of which can be seen in Artiquea.
Unfortunately, due to the costs of maintaining furnace temperatures, it is a dwindling skill with just one family-run workshop left in Damascus.
