Judson Studios | KCET
The oldest family run fine art glass company in the world, Judson Studios was established in 1897 as a local stained glass shop by William Lees Judson, USC's first fine arts professor, and his three sons.
A significant contributor to the Southern California Arts and Crafts Movement, Judson Studios produced numerous stained glass installations for commercial, residential, and religious institutions. Prominent examples of Judson's stained glass are featured in many buildings in the theater district of Downtown L.A. and also in the atrium of the Los Angeles Central Library. David Judson, the great great grandson of William Lees Judson, decided to return to the family business in 1996. Currently, he still runs the Studio.
Judson Studios provides gallery tours by appointment, and also offers workshops.
