Story

HERATI GLASSWARE

For two thousand years Herat’s distinctive coloured glass was traded along the length of the Silk Road. Ghulam Sekhi is one of the last in this ancient line of glassblowers. In a mudbrick workshop near Herat’s ancient citadel, his work is keeping this precious industry alive.

THE TECHNIQUE

Ghulam Sekhi makes glass in much the same way as it has always been made. He grinds quartz, plant ash (otherwise known as 'Ishkar'), and natural oxides together to create the vibrant colours which once made Herat’s glass so famous. He blows each individual glass by hand, and fires them in a traditional mud brick kiln.

THE IMPACT

With the local market for hand blown glass drying up due to the arrival of cheap Chinese glass in Afghanistan, Ghulam Sekhi is struggling to find new apprentices. Each sale of Herati glass will help build the stability he needs for his business to grow.
