Handmade traditional glass icicles. Here's the clear & aqua mix at our main stall in the Bath Christmas Market. Wow
Crafted using an ancient technique of pulling and twisting glass, these icicles can be used inside and out to add sparkle to the darkest of corners.
Due to the nature of the technique, no two icicles will be the same, some are slightly longer than others whist some are a little thicker or thinner.
If you have a specific size in mind please leave a note for us whilst ordering.
The icicle story...
One frosty December morning an old Glass blower came to our factory in Walcot St Bath and asked if he could have a go at making a piece.
Our Glass blowers watched as he took a gather of molten glass from the furnace at 1100c on the end of an iron and began to shape it showing the glassmakers each step of making these beautiful glass icicles. As he did he told them how he had once made the beautiful glass icicles every Christmas for his family and friends. His Grandfather had originally shown him the technique which was typical of Victorian Glass making. For him, they represented times gone by and treasured memories of his loved ones. Upon finishing his story with a smile on his face and a tear in his eye he gifted each glassmaker an glass icicle wishing them hope for the future and a merry Christmas
