Saguaro Concrete Necklace by Konzuk – $190
The geometric design of this concrete necklace was inspired by one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most popular works: Saguaro Form And Cactus Flowers. One of four abstract drawings, for the 1927 monthly, Liberty Magazine, Wright interpreted the desert landscape. However, the editors deemed the works too “radical” and the covers were never published.
Today you can see the design as a stained glass feature at Arizona’s famous Biltmore Hotel lobby. This necklace by Konzuk is available in three different concrete colorways.
Taliesin West Whirling Arrow Stemless Wine Glass – $21
Etched onto an 17 oz. stemless wine glass is the Frank Lloyd Wright “Whirling Arrow” design.
Ozone Coonley Playhouse Sock – $21.95
A continuation of Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous Avery Coonley House project, the playhouse was actually commissioned to function as a kindergarten classroom. Its abstract stained glass designs take imagery from the idea of a parade- confetti, balloons and banners- so it’ll always be a party when you’re wearing this pair.
