Paul,

Not Wright...Wright "inspired"

As described on the Shop Wright website:

"Hand-crafted and produced by Michael Foy, a Chicago engineer and artist strongly influenced by Wright's design."

The Bogk Table is not by Wright. It's TAA from a 1960s remodel (Taliesin Apprentice John Ottenheimer supervised this remodel and you can actually see this table design in situ in the HABS photo from the 60s.) http://i67.tinypic.com/2411bwl.jpg Stuart got the table from when the Elsner's put the tabl...

The drawings mentioned in the Wright Society newsletter are not the ones posted on the gallery's website (which are confusingly other drawings associated with the Lake Tahoe project). Here's larger shots of the drawings being discussed in the newsletter: http://i68.tinypic.com/euqayx.jpg “Taho...

Stumbled across this photo of the entry to Taliesin circa 1934-36 likely taken by Sim Bruce Richards and thought I'd share:
