Our techniques include:
Using dark leads,
Using hidden solder joints
Precision soldering temperatures

The Beginnings Of The Prairie Style
The phrase mid-century modern is all the buzz lately and the as a style for a home it is pretty amazing. What most people don’t realize though, is one of the grandfathers of that look was a man named Frank Lloyd Wright and he was a talented and prolific architect and designer who actually created a number of different styles that are as relevant today as they were in the early 20th century. Beloved and beautiful, the Prairie Style, was the brainchild of Frank Lloyd Wright and clearly a passion project that he was incredibly proud of and, as it were, is one of the most popular stained glass styles on the market today. Read Below to find out why.
What Is Prairie Style Stained Glass?
When one thinks of the prairie you probably imagine sprawling fields and clear horizon lines stretching on for miles and miles. This type of expanse filled with light and vast openness is exactly the type of feel Wright wanted for both is architecture and stained glass. Dramatic horizontal lines that stretch and blend into both the nature outside the windows and architecture within are strong hallmarks of Wright’s work. He was obsessed with how light entered a room and considered light, as well as the glass itself part of the design itself. He was more concerned about the integrity of the materials he used, meaning he did not want to disguise the glass as anything other than glass. Similarly, he wanted everything he designed in the Prairie Style to look like it belonged harmoniously in a natural setting.
The results from Wright in this and many other styles, as you can see, were simply stunning.
His work, while modern at the time, had such strong echoes of the natural world was just at home in the natural world as it was in a city. His subdued use of color and penchant towards clear glass with only intersecting lines allowed his prairie style work to be both interesting to the viewer but still at peace the natural world around them. To say Frank Lloyd Wright was ahead of his time, would be correct, however, when one sees both the uniqueness and breadth of his work, you are left to believe no matter what era he lived in he would still be a maven of his day.
