In 1969, the Craftsman-inspired, shingled building was declared Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument No. 62 and lauded as “the preeminent center in the West for the development of master craftsmen in the historical art of stained glass and mosaics.” The structure was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1999. Walking through its 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 team creates under the words of William Lees Judson, which were painted on the walls more than a century ago: “Only the best is worthwhile.”
In 2016, we opened our state-of-the-art South Pasadena facility and launched a new era dedicated to ambitious explorations in fused and kiln formed glass. Our bright and airy 5,000-square-foot space and 6 kilns, with a combined capacity of nearly 200 square feet, allow us to create groundbreaking contemporary projects. Our 2,000-square-foot gallery showcases our rewarding collaborations with world-renowned artists.
