At Bath Aqua Glass, we blow our vases using the same techniques as ancient Roman glass blowers. The simple act of blowing air into a gathered ball of molten glass and shaping that glass into a vase is mesmerizing and beautiful to watch.
Our signature colour, the clean and pure 'aqua', can be seen in many of our vases. Colouring the glass using copper and iron oxides, we ensure that the legacy of the Romans is remembered in both design and colour choice.
Other ranges include our Ruby Glass vases which are blown with gold oxide and are good for ruby weddings, we offer an engraving service too. This makes a lovely ruby coloured vase to celebrate marriage, a perfect wedding gift
We have a range of one-off coloured glass vases in all sizes, occasionally made by an occasional guest glassblower. He is a master glassblower and specialises in large glass coloured vases.
We have a fantastic range of Lustre glass vases which are made by adding lustre powder to an aqua glass base, this creates a metallic effect which is then brought to the surface by adding the right mix of gas, air and heat. They create a shiny opulence effect, stunning if placed near a window. They reflect colours making this a uniquely coloured glass vase.
Due to the nature of the lustre reaction, no two pieces will ever be identical. If more than one piece is bought from this range, we will do our best to match the final colour and design.
