Stained Glass of Buckinghamshire Churches

Makers Marks by John Nicholas Lawson

John Nicholas Lawson, (October 25 1932 - October 30 2009), was born at St Albans, the only child of William Lawson, a co-founder of Faith Craft Works, a branch in St Albans of a Church of England charity the Society of the Faith which designed and made ecclesiastical features and church furnishings, including stained glass. William Lawson died when John was 13. After attending St Albans School, John Lawson studied design at Chelsea School of Art and then started in his father's old workshop, gaining his early experience designing features such as pews and rood screens. Gradually, however, he began to concentrate on stained glass, and in 1971 he was appointed successor to Arthur Buss, who was retiring as chief artist at Goddard & Gibbs Studios, Britain's leading designer and maker of stained glass. Lawson was to remain with the firm for the rest of his career.
