Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is recognized world-wide as one of the greatest architects of the twentieth century.
This aptly named decorative tile commemorates the 150th anniversary of Mr. Wright's birth on June 8, 1867. The artwork is derived from the art glass window design from a house he built for Avery Coonley in 1912, which used to house Coonley's wife's kinder school. The bold geometry in primary colors in this design, appear to be influenced by Wright's affection for a parade. In his long career, Wright's creative ability extended far beyond the border of architecture to graphic design, furniture, art glass, textiles, and decorative elements for the home.
Actual tile size: 5-13/16" x 10-13/16"

Our tile frames are made by Dard Hunter Studios, founded by early Roycrofter Dard Hunter and run by his grandson, Dard Hunter III.
The 2-inch Oak Park flat frame is also made of oak and comes in Craftsman Oak or Ebony finish. Its finished size is 9-1/2" x 14-1/2". (The Oak Park is the only frame style approved by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation for the tile in our Frank Lloyd Wright Collection (R).)
