British painter and glass artist Leonard Walker was educated at King Edwardâs School in Bromsgrove and studied at the St. John's Wood Art School in London where he began to produce stained glass in the 1890s. He used slab glass extensively in his works. This is made by blowing semi-molten glass into a rectangular bottle mold. Its uneven thickness gives a lustrous effect and many subtle color variations. Walker exploited these qualities in the glass in the execution of his designs. He made the glass himself.
Walker eventually became Principal of the St. Johns Wood Art School where he studied. He was elected a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolors in 1915 and regularly exhibited there and also at the Royal Academy.
