�History of Glass Blowing
The craft of glass blowing has been around since ancient times, and is mentioned to have started in Syria, but flour�ished in Egypt.
More about glass in Ancient Egypt, Little Living Age – Volume 5 – Issue 57; �Originally published in the Polytechnic Review.
It has been found in many ancient civili�zations, including some parts of Greece and China.
Mass production of blown glass objects was not introduced until Roman times.
Over time, techniques have evolved, yet the look and feel stayed true to its heritage, with bubbles in the glass.
In Egypt, glass blowing is mostly practiced in a place called �Maqaber El Mamaleek� (known as �Cairo Necropolis�).
Glassblowing is a craft and an art.
The making of the glass is hand-made, and each glass piece might take hours to fin�ish.
Although the products are authentic in design, they are still functional and handy.
Such glass is also used in many churches and mosques.
What also adds to its beauty is that no piece is like the other, so every item is unique in all its structures.
Makra’s Recycled Glass Cylindrical Vase, made of recycled glass, will always tell the story of Egyptian craftsmanship and sustainability.
