These stunning table lamps are made by glass makers in Syria! I discovered them in Paris and think that not only are they spectacularly beautiful but each sale will help a group of talented artisans whose livelihood has been decimated by war. The Abu Ahmed Glassworks is situated in an area just outside Damascus that was heavily bombed - the neighbouring silk brocade factory was razed to the ground. The family business employs ten people that support ten families and they use a traditional oven to recycle glass that has been recovered from Europe! I have bought the amber /clear glass lamp myself and it looks incredible - extremely modern but with a slightly space-age 1960's feel and it does posses an internal hook so can be suspended should one prefer. I absolutely love it and am trying to find a place for the Tutti-Frutti multi-coloured version which gives me joy every time that I look at our shop window!
