Home Shop Lectures Moira Forsyth – A Deep Conviction in Glass
It is with great pleasure that we welcome Alan Brooks who has been researching the glass of Moira Forsyth over the last few years as a follow-on from his work on the Glass House. During the course of this, he explored her archive at the V&A Archive of Art & Design before it became unavailable due to the rehousing of the collection, and has visited many of the locations for which she made windows.
Moira Forsyth (1905-91) was a very talented painter, ceramic designer and stained glass artist. She became one of the most distinctive of the 20th Century traditionalist stained glass designers, in work that stretched over a long 50-year career, most of which was associated with the Glass House in Fulham. She made windows for over 50 locations, including the cathedrals of Norwich, Guildford, Bradford and St Paul’s in London. She had a deep conviction in the power of artistic expression through glass in its beauty and colour, ‘one of the most exciting mediums….yet one of the most difficult to control’.
