An original stained glass panel design inspired by the Frank Lloyd Wright’s Coonley Playhouse windows. This is not made with the more often used copper foiled method. I made this piece using the traditional lead came construction method that would have been found in Wright’s original windows or light screens as he would have called them. The strong lead lines add to the geometric appeal of this piece and have a hand rubbed patina finish.
Where the Frank Lloyd Wright windows would have used solid circles of colored glass, I have instead incorporated two rondels. Rondels are produced one at a tie in the traditional method of blowing glass by mouth. These rondels are made in Germany and are about 60 years old.
The beauty of a Frank Lloyd Wright’s work is that the designs are equally at home in both modern and traditional environments. They are truly timeless.
This piece measures 19.25 inches x 8.5 inches. The edge is a zinc frame with natural patina. The price includes shipping and packing costs. It is weatherproofed and can be hung outside.
