STORY

Glass produced in Hebron is part of a flourishing art industry established in the city during Roman rule in Palestine. Traditionally, the glass was melted using local raw materials, including sand from neighbouring villages, sodium carbonate (from the Dead Sea), and coloring additives such asiron oxide and copper oxide. Nowadays, recycled glass is often used instead. Glass production in Hebron is a family trade, the secrets of which have been preserved and passed down by a few Palestinian families who operate the glass factories located just outside the city. However, due to the occupation, glass production has suffered a decline. Perhaps these handblown glass tears embody that decline with grief.
