Welcome to Joia Glass

Joy and Peter Cole are Joia Glass.  We are a wife and husband team working together to design, make and market our own glass art.  'Joia' in our name comes from the Portuguese word meaning jewel - and it was also Joy's nickname in Brazil, where she was born. 

Each item we make is an unique and individual piece, a product of our hands and imaginations to bring delight and enjoyment.  The aim is always to make a beautiful and pleasing product that you will want to own and show to all your friends.  

Our workshop is at  6 Stone Barn, Kirkharle Courtyard, NE19 2PE.  

This is in the beautifulcountryside of Northumberland - 20 miles west of Newcastle and on the edge of the Northumbria National Park.  Kirkharle Courtyard is where Capability Brown, the landscape gardener was born.  There are a mixture of artists' workshops and other shops to see - and a coffee shop.  You can also walk around the lake, recently recerated from Capability Brown's early design.  There is also a 12th century church you can visit.

We recently extended our workshop to include a gallery area where you can see the full range of our work.  You can also see us making our work in the workshop next door.

Our opening hours are 11am - 5pm Thursdays to Monday.  We are closed Tuesday and Wednesday.
