Nora Yoxall (1892-1998)

Nora Yoxall (1892-1998)  was trained in Birmingham and well known as a stained-glass artist in partnership with Elsie Whitford (1897-1992). Nora Yoxall (1892-1998) and Elsie Whitford (1897-1992) met in the 1920s when they were art students in Birmingham, and took up stained-glass almost by chance. They worked together for the rest of their lives, always making their windows as well as designing them. From 1949 they worked from a small studio in Blockley, near Chipping Campden. Their output was not large, and was mostly in the Midlands.
