Bath Aqua Glass Glassblowing Studio
This evening, I am posting images and information on the Bath Aqua Glass Glassblowing studio in Walcot Street, Bath. (Bath is a popular visitor destination which is located about 120 miles west of London in southern England.)
This craft operation was inspired by designs from the Roman and Georgian eras. Bath was an important Roman city named Aquae Sulis. (Georgian architecture dates from late 18th/early 19th centuries and represents a complete contrast to the preceding medieval style)
The particular type of glass known as ‘Bath Aqua’ is made by adding copper oxide to molten glass which results in a aquamarine colour.
At this particular craft site visitors can view the process and participate in the glassblowing.
There is an on-site shop selling glass wares.
