‘La Verrerie de Biot’ opened in 1956 and has been going strong ever since. It was their creative addition of carbonate of soda to the glass-making process that really put them on the map, and the unique looking ‘bubble glass’ which resulted is now recognised and imitated around the world.
At the glassworks. you can watch glass-blowers hard at work, shaping the glowing glass into beautiful forms. You can also learn about the history of glass in the museum section, and finally in the showroom you can peruse the work of contemporary glass artists. There is of course the opportunity to buy a range of glass items.
