Kettlewell, Jasper and Molly

Jasper Kettlewell (1905-77) and Molly Kettlewell (1914-99) were both talented artists, whose careers were defined by a visit to Chartres Cathedral in the 1950s. Inspired they enrolled at the Central School of Art & Design, where Tom Fairs was running the stained glass department. Their subsequent career was based around studios in Hertfordshire, Kent and Somerset, making stained glass windows and teaching students. After Jasper’s death Molly continued to work with the help of Sally Jackson & Norah Brown, who both help complete her final commissions, when Molly was forced to retire following a serious car accident.
