Gordon Webster (1908-1987) was born in Glasgow, the son of Alf Webster, a renowned Stained Glass Artist and inheritor of Stephen Adam Studio. Alf Webster died in WWI when Gordon was 6 years. The Studio was kept running due to MCM Webster (Alf’s widow) and Douglas Hamilton, Alf Webster’s assistant. Gordon was trained by Douglas Hamilton and took control of the studio in the late 1920s. Alf’s designs were used to begin with, but by the mid 1930s, Gordon developed his own style which proved to be effective and successful.
