The Lawrence Lee Project

Lawrence Stanley Lee was born in 1909 and studied art at the Royal College of Art where he later became Head of Stained Glass.

His work can be found all over Britain and there are many of his windows abroad too - as far afield as New Zealand. With two of his students, Keith New and Geoffrey Clark, he masterminded the design of the ten nave windows at Coventry Cathedral. He also has windows at Guildford and Southwark Cathedrals. In 1974 he was elected Master of the Worshipful Company of Stained Glass Artists.

He recognised the work of his many assistants over the years by including their initials within his own monogram on his windows.

Lawrence Lee continued to work as a stained glass artist until the early 1990s. He celebrated his 100th birthday in September 2009 with family, friends and former assistants.

In collaboration with his son Stephen, I am making a photographic collection of his works. This includes documenting his own photographs and sketches. You can follow this project in the Flickr group where the most up to date information can be found, along with a large selection of photographs.
