J Hill Standard

JHS are makers of handmade collectable and useful objects in glass and in other natural materials. Our products celebrate the progressive and handmade, whereby the hand of the maker is revealed, not hidden.

A family of non-conformists working from the southern shores of Ireland. We are dedicated to finding innovative ways to secure a future for the knowledge and skill passed down through generations of craftsmen and synonymous with the area of Waterford.

Working with master craftsmen and world class designers, we deliver rare and singular hand crafted objects.

They take their name from a pioneer in crystal production, J Hill, an 18th century glass alchemist and innovator. Hill was credited with revolutionising the production of lead crystal in Ireland and was setting a new standard of quality and material perfection.

Their brand is inspired by the story of this maverick and ingenious individual.
