Desert Sands Votive Holder
Created in the historic West Bank city of Hebron, a sacred site for Christians, Muslims and Jews, this candleholder comes with small amount of sand from the Holy Land. Hebron is also well-known for its traditional glass-blowing.
Glassmakers create these distinctively beautiful Phoenician glass pieces, using recycled bottles and a family secret to create the swirls and range of colors. The Phoenician glass technique requires such special skill and care that it had historically been reserved for wedding gifts; the Natsheh family of glass-blowers have helped to revive a craft nearly forgotten during the mid-20th century.
Established in 1890, Hebron Glass is a family business that has expanded over the years and is now exporting traditional glassware and ceramics products.
Each piece is handcrafted; shades of aqua and green, swirl pattern will vary. 3.5Dx3.5H inches - Includes standard tealight and sand in a small bag (5.5Lx2W inches)
