John Hardman & Co. (established 1838)

John Hardman was one of the pioneers of the stained glass revival of the nineteenth century. His Birmingham-based operation started out as an ecclesiastical metal works, but, at the suggestion of A.W.N. Pugin, the business expanded into glass manufacture in 1845. Pugin designed for the firm until his death in 1852 when this role passed onto his nephew John Hardman Powell. The firm was renamed John Hardman Studios in about 1939, at which time Donald Battershill Taunton (1886-1965) and Patrick Feeny (1910-1995) were designers. Able to move on from the Victorian and Edwardian Gothic Revival styles, the firm survived and continues today, led by the designer David Williams.
