The Camms were stained glass designers who exhibited 48 times at the Royal Academy and also exhibited at The Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, The Royal Scottish Academy, and the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists. Thomas William Camm’s work was widely acclaimed, with his studio winning medals in Paris in 1878, in Sydney in 1879 and in Turin in 1911. In 1915, the American architect Ralph Adams Cram wrote that ‘at the present moment a large number of artists in England are producing work of most singular beauty and perfection. Amongst these I have no hesitation in placing Mr. Camm easily as the first’.
Following the death of her father, Florence Camm became the chief designer at TW Camm.
