Welcome to Joy McMillan Glass

Glass is the most magical of materials. It’s a big part of everyday life. It’s used to create exquisite art. Glass pieces have survived for thousands of years. It’s reusable. It can be recycled. At Joy McMillan Glass we really love this awesome stuff.

Lampwork Glass

lampwork glass to delight your senses

At Joy McMillan Glass we create lampwork treasures in our Yorkshire Studio. Glass is amazing stuff, yet we interact with it multiple times and day without noticing (hello phone screen!).

Glass has the ability to delight your senses, from the tactile delight of playing with one of our spinning necklaces to the visual enjoyment of watching light dance through glass decorations.

Three tiny plant decorations sit on a yellow and green ornamental squash. The decorations are an orange pumpkin with green stalk, a gnome with red pointy hat and white beard and a mushroom with a red cap and white spots.

Created With Fire

Lampwork glass objects are handmade one by one in a hot flame. 

Heat, gravity and tools allow the control and shaping of the molten glass turning it into everything from statement chains to tiny decorations.

It might be the best job in the world.

Eco Credentials

Glass has great eco credentials.

It’s durable. It can be reused almost indefinitely, and it’s easy to recycle. The beads on the link used to be a marmite bottle.

Glass is vegan friendly – there are no animal products used either in the initial manufacturing process or when we use it.

At Joy McMillan Glass we’ll always try to do better – it’s an ongoing process.
