Goddard & Gibbs (established 1868)

Decorative glass studio working in the production and restoration of traditional stained glass as well as contemporary architectural glass. The firm was initially established as Walter Gibbs & Sons on Blackfriars Road in London. After takeovers by James Clark & Sons (during which time the firm acquired Goddards Glass Works), then James Clark & Eaton, the studio was bought by Charles Clark and renamed Goddard & Gibbs Studios in 1978. Their chief designer after this was John Lawson (1932-2009), although prior to this other artists, notably A.E. Buss, George Cooper-Abbs and Caroline Swash, designed for the firm.
