Judson Studios in Highland Park, Los Angeles, has been making stained glass for churches and temples both secular and religious for well over a century. Founder William Lees Judson, inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement of his native England, was one of cofounders of the Arroyo Guild, an influential group of Southern Californian artisans. He also founded the Los Angeles College of Fine Arts — which later became the University of Southern California College of Fine Arts — in the original studio, a shared space frequented by artists, craftspersons and architects like Frank Lloyd Wright, whose Hollyhock House features leaded glass, pictured above, by Judson Studios.
The present studio, in operation since 1920, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. We’re proud to work with the present generation of artisans at Judson Studios, who are creating custom stained glass for Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles.
