Copper is a very good conductor of heat. So it allows maximum amount of heat to pass through it from one point to other. But glass is a poor conductor of heat and hence it allows a very little amount of heat to pas through it. 
When we touch a heated copper piece and glass, more heat is transferred to out hand from copper than glass. So copper seems warmer.
