F. C. Eden (1864-1944)

Frederick Charles Eden was an architect and a pupil of William Butterfield and of G. F. Bodley. He often designed the glass and other fittings for his own buildings, and his stained glass was made by Joseph Fisher of Fulham. He grew frustrated with the execution of his work by others, and in 1910 he set up a studio to make his own windows. He served on the council of the British Society of Master Glass Painters in the 1920s. He was described by W.I. Croome as a pioneer in the 'use of a large-scale ground of clear quarries'.
