The art of glass blowing has a long history in Egypt dating back to the reign of Akhenaten in the 14th century B.C. Glassmakers crushed raw materials, colored the glass, and heated it to form decorative objects. This technique and centuries old tradition has been passed from generation to generation and is still practiced today.
