Howard Martin (1907-1972)

Stained glass designer. Howard Martin was born in Morriston, Swansea, and studied at Swansea School of Art, where he was invited to teach stained glass from about 1935. Having established a studio with his cousin Hubert Thomas before the war, the cousins went on to establish the successful firm Celtic Studios in Swansea in the late 1940s. Howard Martin continued to lecture at the College of Art while designing for the firm, becoming Vice-Principal in 1962.
