Makers Marks by John Hayward

John David Hayward (1929-2007) was a British stained glass artist who made nearly 200 windows in churches and cathedrals across Britain and abroad. Hayward was born in Tooting, London into a Methodist family. His father, David Hayward, was a printer and church organist. He was educated at Tooting Bec Grammar School (now Ernest Bevin College) and developed a talent for painting and drawing. After school, he enrolled at St Martin's School of Art. After leaving St. Martin's, Hayward received an offer from Royal College of Art, but he instead joined Faith Craft, a company that designed ecclesiastical furniture. He remained there for 18 years before setting up his own practice as a stained glass artist. His first major commission was a set of ruined windows of the Christopher Wren church, St Mary-le-Bow, which had been damaged in the Second World War.
