“Embracing the World” (2017) by Amir H. Fallah, in collaboration with Judson Studios, was one of our first artist collaborations ever in our new fusing studio. The piece, which is a self portrait of the artists, is based off an original painting by Fallah that we translated into stained and fused glass. “Offering” (2018) by Amir H. Fallah, was our second collaboration with the artist. The work followed a similar process of translating an original drawing info a fused and leaded panel. Both pieces were displayed at Shulamit Nazarian Gallery in Los Angeles, CA.

Our second collaboration with Jean entitled “Gaia” (2019), is a nearly 8 foot tall three dimensional crystal made entirely of fused glass and bound with lead in a custom steel frame.

Joseph P. Gerges
“Liberation” by Joseph P. Gerges (2020) was the culmination of a nearly 1 year residency at our fused glass studio. Joe pushed the capabilities and techniques of our staff to create this truly unique work. The piece was first installed at Forest Lawn Museum as part of their exhibition “Judson Studios: Stained Glass from Gothic to Street Style.”
“Transparent Data” (2018) by Laurie Frick commissioned by Texas A&M University, for the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University in College Station, TX. Laurie Frick came to Judson Studios with her design and we worked together in the studio to choose colors and decide on a technique. From there Judson Studios ramped up production on these hundreds of pieces. We cut, fused, drilled, documented, and crated all of the panels before shipping them to the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University. The data on one wall represents what types of engineering projects are being worked on by current students, and the other wall represents projects that were worked on by alumni.
Judson Studios hosted multidisciplinary artist Malene Barnett, in an artist residency, who worked with Narcissus Quagliata for a week of intensive sample making resulting in this full composition.
Barnett works in a variety of mediums from “sculptural ceramic tiles and vessels to mixed media paintings to handwoven rugs […] using natural materials like the finest wools, silks, pastels and clay [to] uncover a deeper language of her legacy and an authentic understanding of her cultural identity.” She had previously taken only one class in stained glass under the instruction of Judith Schechter before participating in this residency.

“Grade” and “Crush” (2018) by Matthew Day Perez, in partnership with Judson Studios and Bullseye Glass.
