Windows of Prairie Style art glass, or "Light Screens" as they were called by Wright, largely disappeared from American architecture after about 1925.  They can be made for existing and new homes, in a wide variety of patterns and colors, scaled to fit doors or windows of any size. They can add grace and beauty to any home, regardless of architectural style.

""Born in the heartland, in suburban Chicago around 1900, the Prairie Style revolutionized home design. . .  The movement became known as the Prairie School, and although Frank Lloyd Wright emerged as its leader, he was only one of about twenty idealistic young architects who rewrote the rules of domestic architecture. . . . A dazzling array of art glass graced nearly all Prairie houses, embellishing cabinets, French doors, skylights . . . But the jewel-like prisms of glass danced most brilliantly in windows grouped into sweeping bands of pattern and light. . . . Simple and geometric, sparkling with flashes of light and color, they welcomed sunlight into a room in a way that no ordinary window could."(1)*
