The Judson Studios – Books

Give your artist the gift that is Judson Studios’ beautiful work! You can purchase both of their two books on their website: The Resurrection Window and Judson: Innovation in Stained Glass.

The Judson Studios are a full service architectural and art glass studio, working at any scale, from private residences to grand public spaces and restorations. Judson Studios was established in Los Angeles in 1897 by the painter and professor William Lees Judson and his three sons. Helmed by Walter Horace, the eldest son and a stained glass expert, the Studios thrived from the start, beautifying the booming metropolis with works that represented the best in traditional and modern design. Today, Judson is the oldest family-run stained glass studio in America, still proudly offering an exquisite, handcrafted product made by local artisans, and continuing to serve the community that has sustained them through the decades.

Artist Jeffrey Thomas Burke worked for many years as a commercial photographer, cinematographer and graphic designer. In 2006 Jeffrey and his wife, artist Lorraine Triolo, retired from commercial practice and re-opened BurkeTriolo Studio to create personal work. Jeff’s current body of work speaks to the concept of Paradise as a beautiful myth and Man’s need for purpose and a lasting place in the cosmos. His unique image style combines original photography with digital manipulation to create scenes of exuberant life and utopian bliss.
