The essential ingredient for making glass is sand or silica, but combining the minerals and heat to create this new element is solely based on the craftsman's skill.
Our Cairo collection, made from handblown glass in the city that bears its name, is a beautifully fluted carafe perfect for entertaining at home.
We've been fascinated with silica forming in this shiny transparent object for millennia, but glassmaking's true origin is still a mystery. We know that the first glass objects appeared in archeological records during the reign of Thutmoses III, and the earliest glassmaking factory in the world was discovered in Egypt.
