Joy and Peter Cole are a wife and husband team working together designing and producing glass art as Joia Glass Art. Our name ‘Joia Glass’ comes from Joy’s nickname in her country of birth, Brasil, where it means ‘jewel’.
In 2005 we did a taster session in fused glass and were hooked! We are mainly self-taught and have developed our own style, especially using texture and bright colours in our work. Our inspiration can come from anything – a walk, a sunset, textiles, stones, trees and nature in general. Each piece we make is unique and handmade.
