Mad Cat Glass Designs


Unique designs for unique souls


My name is Lesley Jane Nixon and I am the owner of Mad Cat Glass Designs, an online and bricks and mortar business based in the pretty market town of Leek in North Staffordshire, on the doorstep to the beautiful Peak District National Park, here in the UK.

I started to make jewellery with trinkets and pretties back in 2004, whilst I was on long term sick leave from a rather stressful job as a domestic violence outreach worker.
As much as I valued my career, I found that being creative was incredibly therapeutic, and I started to feel more like 'Me'

I discovered the (still pretty unknown, back then) art of lampworking. I bought a starter kit and was instantly hooked ! The rest, as they say is history :)

Formally educated to degree level, majoring in fine art, I often like to branch out into painting and printmaking when time allows, but the self taught art of flameworking hot glass is still my biggest passion.
