Antony Lynn ‘Tony’ Hollaway (1928-2000) was born in Dorset and after national service studied at Bournemouth College of Art, before progressing to the Royal College of Art.
After leaving the RCA in 1957 Hollaway worked in stained glass and mural design, including a period as a design consultant to the London County Council. It was during this period that he met and collaborated on a number of projects with Manchester architect, Harry Fairhurst, a connection that would lead to the commissioning of his great Manchester Cathedral windows. He was also an inspirational teacher both at the Central School and as head of the three-dimensional design department at Trent Polytechnic.
