Bath Aqua Glass
Bath Aqua Glass, next to Bath Abbey is a beautiful independent glass shop and studio where you can watch the makers in action. All items are handmade by skilled artists in Bath and include everything from pendants and earrings to wine glasses, vases and stained glass mirrors and hangings.
Taking its name from the city's Latin name, Aquae Sulis, Bath Aqua is made by adding copper oxide to molten glass. This gives the aquamarine colour reminiscent of the historic city's hot springs. The designs available in this finely crafted range take inspiration from ancient Roman glass vessels. Their delicate colouring and translucent quality reflect the healing properties of the famous Roman spa Baths.
