Current Exhibitions


Joseph Nuttgens

An exhibition of stained glass and prints

28 April - 28 June 2017


The Stained Glass Museum is proud to welcome a new exhibition of stained glass and Prints by artist Joeseph Nuttgens.

Joseph was born in 1941. Educated by Dominicans and brought up within a milieu of idealistic Catholicism, he left to study at the Central School of Art and the Royal College of Art, completing his studies in 1964. He then worked experimentally, firstly with expanded plastics and metal sheet, exhibiting at the Camden Arts Centre, London in 1970; then making ‘light’ sculptures, incorporating steel sheet and coloured glass, transmitting colour from hidden light sources, which were exhibited at the Cochrane Gallery, London, and with AIM, at the CBX, in Milton Keynes, throughout the seventies. During this period he also taught at schools and art colleges and, for nine years, taught prisoners in Wormwood Scrubs Prison. Encouraged by Patrick Reyntiens, he returned to stained glass in 1978, becoming his assistant, working mainly on John Piper’s windows. On the death of his father in 1982 he re-established this studio and, since then, has designed and made stained glass windows for cathedrals, churches and many other venues.
Throughout this time he has maintained an output of painting and, in recent years, has set up a relief print shop within his studio, producing woodcuts and linocuts. He regards stained glass as a commissioned art, subject to particular architectural styles and periods, as well as being a response to ideas and themes of interested parties. A successful window, for him, does not necessarily assert his individual style but compliments the architectural space in which it is set, whether it be historic or modern.


The exhibition runs from 28 April until 28 June and in the Museum Shop (free entry*)
