One of the great stories in modern glass art is coming to the screen. Holy Frit, a documentary film by Justin Monroe, shares the wild and winsome journey of Tim Carey and Judson Studios as they realize a church’s vision to create the world’s largest stained glass window of its kind. With plenty of human drama, creative travail, and colorful characters—including famed artist Narcissus Quagliata and folks from Bullseye Glass—it is a must-watch for art lovers in general and glass lovers especially.
See the trailer:
Holy Frit succeeds both as entertainment and as a celebration of the masterful, daring craft of kilnforming. We were honored to contribute in different ways to the project featured in the film. We are also thrilled that this movie will introduce more people to the fabulous work of Tim Carey and Judson Studios on one hand, and the remarkable potentials of fused glass on the other. No doubt the film and its subject matter will inspire more makers, studios, and organizations to innovate with new materials and push the limits of art.
