Beautiful Tealights by Joia Glass
Joia Glass are a husband and wife team who are developing their own unique style of glass art influenced by their love of natural forms. This month they have created some beautiful new tea lights, full of vibrant colours and textures.
Joy and Peter Cole try to use as much recycled glass as possible and they create these surprisingly sturdy glass sculptures from their workshop using precision and care. Their aim is to make beautifully hand crafted products, which will be cherished forever.
The name Joia Glass comes from Joy’s nickname from her country of birth, Brazil. Joia is the Portuguese name for jewel, and for Joy and Peter, it represents the glass they enjoy making – colourful, light catching, many facetted and precious.
