More FLW Lamps

Here are some early lamps I made and donated to the Lincoln Library to auction off as fundraisers. The first lamp is 30" tall with lights on both sides and tall slats that let light through. This one is made of cherry wood.

This large lamp is the classic Frank Lloyd Wright lantern similar to the one styled in brass for the Robie House. This one is made of cherry and stained glass. It has a lighted base as well as traditional light under glass shade. The couple who bought this lamp were building a house and designed the entryway especially to emphasize the lantern.

This floor lamp is modeled after Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin 1, originally designed for the interior of his home, Taliesin, built in Spring Green, Wisconsin in 1911. Settled on a solid base, the shaft of the lamp supports a square shade of wood and stained glass that evokes the sheltering roof of a pagoda, one of the architect's signature tectonic forms. Wright used this design repeatedly as desk lamps in the homes of his later clients and in 1955 reconfigured it as a floor lamp for the Donald Loveness House in Stillwater, Minnesota. The lamp stands 49 inches in height abd is made of mahogany with a wood and stained glass shade.

Although these three lamps have found homes, please contact me to have similar lamps made by special order.
