Barbara Smith

Stained Glass Artist, Author.

In 2017 she was commissioned by Barnsley MBC to make a public art work in stained glass

 Babs Smith originally trained as a colour chemist, and has a background in textile printing, marketing and housing management.  Since she and her partner Robin Gledhill came to live in Knottingley in 2007, she has pursued her interests in the arts, stained glass making and historic building conservation.

She began working with Brian Lewis at Tyke Modern Gallery in Pontefract in 2015.  They often work together.  She was responsible for creating a 16 paned window in the gallery.   It used poetry to attack the food sold in IKEA cafes and to question the sense behind buying mass-produced art.  The work was long-listed for the Ruskin Prize in 2016.  She toured with the ‘Bus Pass People’ when they went to Stratford that year.  

In 2017 she was commissioned by Barnsley MBC to make a public art work in stained glass:  The roundabout sculpture at Monk Bretton.  This celebrates the life of Mr Stanley Race, a key influence behind the heritage of the glass industry in Barnsley. She is currently studying for an MA in Stained Glass Conservation and Heritage Management at the University of York.
