“When you’re inside the Hall of Crucifixion-Resurrection on the grounds of Forest Lawn Cemetary in Glendale, tilt your head up towards the windows. On a sunny day, inside this mini Gothic cathedral at the top of the cemetery, light streams through jewel-toned panes of glass that evoke a centuries-old European style, but were actually made in 1951 by a long-running L.A. family business.
With over 120 years of history, Judson Studios is integral to the look of Los Angeles. You might not immediately recognize the name, but you’ve certainly seen their stained glass creations. The dome at the Natural History Museum, the large globe hanging inside Central Library and the windows at the Hollyhock House were all made by Judson’s team of craftspeople.”
