^FLW - FRANK THOMAS ENTRY CEILING LIGHT, C/10Product #:
Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is recognized world-wide as one of the greatest architects of the twentieth century. His work heralded a new thinking in architecture, using innovation in design and engineering made possible by newly developed technology and materials. His creative ability extended far beyond the border of architecture to graphic design, furniture, art glass, textiles, and decorative elements for the home.
This product design is adapted from the art glass pattern Frank Lloyd Wright created for three vestibule ceiling lights in the Frank Thomas House. He designed and built this project at the request of Mr. James Rogers as a wedding gift for the client’s daughter and son-in-law. Some of Wright’s most intricate art glass is found in this house. His use of mother-of-pearl, tiny gilded squares, diamond shapes, and an abstract arrowhead motif in the ceiling lights adds to the creation of a brilliant glass jewel box in a vestibule composed of art glass on three of its four walls.
