Nearly five years ago, my husband and I lived in the lovely Mediterranean city of Tunis. One of my favorite places to get lost in was Sadika, a glass blowing studio with a store that sold beautiful Tunisian artwork. Owner and artist, Sadika Keskes, has created a glorious haven of hammam bath towels, Tunisian rugs, and local jewelry. Her space also features a variety of painters. Yet, it is the colorful glass that draws most attention.
Dishes, glasses, candle votives, pendants, and floor lamps are just some of the items found in Sadika. Both in clear and frosted glass, these are usually accompanied by metal designs. Their glass glow is perfect both in interiors and exteriors.
In this video, Sadika shares her views on working with glass, the importance of creativity, and the function of imitation.
Can you see one of these Sadika pieces in your home? I can….maybe because I have collected a few. (wink)
