Theodora Salusbury

Theodora Salusbury (1875-1956) was a noted Leicestershire-born stained glass artist. She studied at the Central School of Arts & Crafts in London circa 1910, and after set up her own studio in Kensington, London. She undertook the design and painting of her windows by herself but had Lowndes & Drury of The Glass House (Fulham) do the firing and glazing. Between the wars her studio was relocated to St Agnes, Cornwall. Her work is often identifiable by her use of a peacock as her maker's mark. Much of her work is in Leicestershire,[1][2] but other examples can be found at St Agnes, Cornwall,[3] St Columba's United Reformed Church, Oxford and St Andrew's United Reformed Church, Ealing.
