Frank Lloyd Wright.....Tree of Life......bronze came........there are 41 photos which detail the various steps of construction....but no mention of the studio where the work was done.....I thought there was one studio that had the "copyright", or whatever, to replicate FLW windows?? anyone know?? Thanks.

FLW enthusiasts might well want to subscribe to the following:

They have monthly updates about all sorts of buildings and homes....

Preston Studios has often created entrances influenced by this design motif, but usually using sacrilegious bevels (FLW would never have approved) as part of the design for added "bling:"
