Tim Lewis


Welsh stained glass artist. Timothy Lewis was born in Pontarddulais and trained in Swansea, and then in London at the Royal College of Art under Lawrence Lee, before returning to Swansea in 1963. In 1972 he succeeded Howard Martin as the head of the Architectural Stained Glass department in Swansea College of Art, and was instrumental in introducing students to the influence of the contemporary German architectural glass artists such as Ludwig Schraffrath and Johannes Schreiter. Tim Lewis' studio, Glantawe Studios, has produced his own work as well as making windows to the design of others, notably Colwyn Morris and John Edwards.
