Bovard Studio had its beginning in 1971 with founder Ron Bovard working as an independent artist. Since an exhibit at the Carnegie Museum in 1972, Bovard has exhibited his art in galleries and museums around the world, including more than 25 one man shows in places such as New York City and Vienna, Austria.
From this modest beginning the studio has expanded to over 70 artists, craftspeople and staff who complete over 100 church projects per year, as well as projects in courthouses, libraries, colleges and other public and private buildings. We have attracted many of the finest artists and craftspeople from around the world. Working in both traditional and contemporary styles, Bovard artists have won many awards and honors. Bovard Studio has restored famous historic stained glass masterpieces by Louis Tiffany, Louis Sullivan, Charles Connick, Frederick Lamb, and Xavier Zettler, and has created new windows in these and other historic styles.
In order to meet the special requirements needed to preserve priceless stained glass windows Bovard Studio manufactures a series of aluminum frames incorporating a patented ventilation system. One square inch of vent area at the top and bottom for every 16 square feet of window area as per the "Protective Glazing Study for the National Preservation Center; June 30, 1996; Nachitoches, LA. These frames are customized to maintain the heritage of existing buildings or to manifest the creativity of contemporary architects.
With over 40,000 square feet of modern production space on 20 acres of highway frontage, we have the facilities to meet your every stained glass need. Our facilities include a state of the art graphic design department, a glass painting studio with fine artists assembled from around the world, efficient, well organized stained glass production space, stained glass restoration facilities, wood and metal shops, and showroom and offices.
At Bovard Studio we are proud to carry on the tradition of stained glass art as one of the oldest major art forms in the world, with it's profound place in history. We maintain video conferencing capabilities to enable us to work with you interactively to develop custom art glass to suit the needs of your client. Contact Bovard for additional information and budget allowance estimates for your projects.
This specification includes aluminum frames and exterior protective coverings for stained glass windows.
