Assuming the Foundation has control over all aspects including packaging design, the "OEM" lamps do have the numbering on the boxes they come in.

My guess is that the numbers are for reference only, and have nothing to do with what Wright would have called the lamps.

An important distinction.... at the time I got my T1 table lamp I wondere ...

The keyboard concerto's (actually clavier) Bach interestingly derived "after" others are wonderful. Sixteen can be found on a 3-record set performed by Sophie Svirsky on Monitor Records. It' ...

Indeed, the original presentation drawings for Unity indicated brick and concrete inside and out with intricate interior detailing akin to the contemporanneous Larkin light court colonnades, rather th ...

One of the better documentaries and a joy sitting through without needing to throw something at the tube. Would never consider getting into Frank's mind, but if not overt, there's undoubtedly a common ...

Did you use something similar to the exterior plaster color of Taliesin 1 anywhere else?

My theory is that the print room was actually for the museum, not the Spaulding residence.

The sheet with the sketches could have originated when the possibility of a room for Spaulding was first ...

The room, as has been suggested, may have been meant as an addition to William S. Spaulding's own home.

That's right... not being familiar with Boston, William Spalding's Back Bay city townhouse wa ...

Taliesin's dating would be contradictory (1914? 1919?) without context. Again, I would go by Julia Meech confirming 1914 as the first mention of creating the "room" for Spaulding-or what was ...

Definitely needs the additional fixture in the corner... but maybe detailing is "weighted" a bit to the one side? .... perhaps a full length vertical trim just this side of the fixture with ...

Works nice, Stephen. Possible alternative may be to place the fixtures on the end wall in the space between the adjacent wall and trim, creating a separate arrangement from that with the two either si ...

The monolith is somewhat overbearing, but the treatment of the tombs cascading down the slope is intriguing. The tombs in each section appear to either decrease in length as they ascend, or are symmet ...

Thank you all for the light fixture advice; it's extremely helpful and I'm making changes based upon it. I'm hoping to do an update this weekend.

An apprentice towards "the end", certainly one of the best from the Taliesin orbit. His website mentions him involved with both Marin County and the Guggenheim as well as time with Goff. He' ...
