It is with great sadness that Pulp Studio, Gardena, California, has announced the untimely passing of Bernard Lax. As the founder, owner, and chief executive officer of Pulp Studio, this is a great loss to all of us. An icon in the industry, Lax was a pioneer who paved the way for change in many aspects of the glass industry. Beginning in 1998, growing to the premier fabricator Pulp Studio is today, Lax was never shy about challenging the norms, pushing the envelope, and fighting for improvement at Pulp Studio and in our industry. He was liked and respected by so many and will be sorely missed.
Lax instilled his DNA in Pulp Studio’s culture and is just part of the legacy that will continue with his passing. Although unexpected, the Pulp team will maintain continuity with cutting-edge products, unprecedented quality, and the highest levels of service. They will continue, unfortunately sooner than planned, with the transition plan put in place several years ago. Lax is survived by his wife, Lynda, president and co-owner, and his son, Taylor. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to some of his favorite causes, including the LA Food Bank, World Central Kitchen, and Doctors Without Borders.
