Stained Glass in Wales | Gwydr Lliw yng Nghymru

J. E. Nuttgens (1892-1982)

Born in Aachen, Joseph Edward Nuttgens was the son of a German tailor’s cutter and an English mother. They moved to London in 1896. Nuttgens established his studio in the Chiltern Hills near the workshops of Eric Gill, who was an early influence, as was Christopher Whall. Nuttgens studied with Karl Parsons and was introduced to the artists working in stained glass at Lowndes and Drury's Glass House in Fulham, London. He also worked for Martin Travers as his chief assistant until 1922, and then as an assistant to Paul Woodroffe at Chipping Camden. Nuttgens methods were traditional, using glass paint, enamels, yellow stain and acid etch as practised by artists such as Chagall, Matisse, and, in Coventry Cathedral, John Piper and Patrick Reyntiens, whose partnership began in his studio. Several of his twelve children are artists and makers in various media, and his son Joseph Ambrose Nuttgens worked with him before taking over his stained glass studio after his death.
