Sustainability Excellence

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.

This master craftsman 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. He mouth-blows each individual glass and fires them in a traditional mud brick kiln.
