Bath Aqua Glass
Located next to Bath Abbey, Bath Aqua Glass 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 title of Aquae Sulis, Bath Aqua Glass 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 waters of the famous Roman Baths.
For interactive freeblown glassblowing demonstrations and the chance to put your own breath in a bauble, you can also visit Bath Aqua Theatre of Glass, on Walcot Street.
