Lewis, Tim

Tim Lewis trained initially 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 Schaffrath 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.

Tim Lewis and the Worshipful Company of Glaziers

The Worshipful Company of Glaziers was founded in 1328 and remains dedicated to the art and craft of stained glass. In recent times the emphasis has moved from the protection of the personal economic welfare of Glaziers to the preservation of the heritage of stained glass and the support of continuing high standards.

A key part of this work has been the annual competition for young artists, which began in 1932 and which, since 1982, has operated under the banner of the Stevens Competition, the premier competition for stained glass artists in the UK.

Tim Lewis was a prize winner in 1963-64.
