Our Historic Headquarters

in the Garvanza section of Highland Park, the original site of USC’s College of Fine Arts and Architecture, is where most of our traditional stained glass and restoration projects are completed. Originally built in 1900 and then redesigned in 1911 by the local architects Train & Williams, the Craftsman-inspired building was declared a historic monument in 1969.

Walking through winding passageways into the light-filled cutting room and the cavernous subterranean glazing room is like being transported back in time. To this day, our workers create under the words of William Lees Judson, painted on the walls 100 years ago: Only the best is worthwhile.

The New Facility

Opened in June 2016, our state-of-the-art South Pasadena facility heralds a new era for Judson Studios. With 5,000 square feet of airy industrial space and 6 kilns yielding around 200 square feet of capacity, this new studio will host most of our contemporary projects and will be a laboratory of exploring innovative techniques and opportunities in fused and kiln formed glass.

A 2,000-square-foot gallery will showcase collaborations with artists-in-residence and other groundbreaking works in glass. If you’re interested in seeing what we’re up to, feel free to visit our new space.  It’s just minutes from Garvanza on Pasadena Avenue.
