Frank Lloyd Wright Stained Glass for your Houston homeMartin Faith
Frank Lloyd Wright is arguably the most iconic American architect. And while most people know the name, and may even be familiar with some of his more famous buildings, not that many people are aware that he designed hundreds of stained glass windows for his buildings. He considered them an integral part of the whole, an important aspect of the overall design. Instead of calling them stained glass windows, Wright called them “light screens.”
His style consisted of lovely geometric patterns, mostly clear glass with pops of earth toned glass or jewel colored glass in the designs.
Here at Houston Stained Glass, we are big fans of Frank Lloyd Wright’s style of stained glass, sometimes referred to as the Mission style or the Prairie style. With Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass, Houston home and business owners can get the flavor of this master’s work in their own windows.
Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass, Houston architecture lovers know, had a very specific look and feel. It consisted of mostly clear glass, interspersed with bits of color. So the view of the world outside was not hidden. While we do not copy his work exactly, we use it as inspiration to provide our clients with work that has that same look and feel.
