The Robie House Vase is one of the concrete garden urn designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It is one of many of that belong to the Frank Lloyd Wright Collection. As Anthony, the artisan cleans and inspects the mold the president of Nichols Bros. Stoneworks, D.R. Hendel, comments on the cleaning process and describes the intricacies of maintaining a mold that produces high-quality cast stone replicas. This process is used after ever production of cast stone planters. It is a very time-consuming process that requires the artisans to spot anything that would require repair or even replacement of the mold. Cast stone mold do not last forever. After some time and use they will eventually have to be replaced. Replacement of a mold is yet another process in the whole system of maintaining the highest cast stone production; an American made tradition that will last a lifetime.
Setting An Oak Park Studio Vase Mold
The Oak Park Studio planters were made in Wright's early career for his studio in Oak Park Illinois where he would live and work for almost two decades. While his earlier works have some influence from traditional architectural designs, this outdoor urn was crafted for his own personal studio and embodies his unique and acclaimed style. An ardent steward of nature, Frank Lloyd Wright persistently created works that would enhance our experience with the natural elements. He was not merely an architect producing structures for function; Wright produced entire living environments often designing the furniture and even dinner ware for at least some of his creations. It is clear that Wright placed all of his creative charms in the design of the Oak Park Studio Vases.
The Oak Park Studio Garden Planters have become one of Wright's most recognized designs. In this video, you can see the cast stone artisan assemble many pieces. Frank Lloyd Wright reproductions are made with precise diligence to ensure every detail of Wright's design remains true the original specifications. Cast stone molds are typically made of two parts, an inner mold that forms the detailed elements and an out casing that supports the inner mold and maintains the specified dimensions.
The Oak Park Studio Garden Urn Is Removed From Its Mold
One of Frank Lloyd Wright's more notable creations, the Oak Park Studio Vase has stood the test of time through two centuries. This garden planter was created by Wright for his Oak Park Studio in Chicago, Illinois. This was the time of his early career when he developed the Prairie Style and created many private homes. Several of these garden planters were positioned above eye level and could be seen from many vantage points when one climbed steps leading to the entrance of the studio. This element of architectural design where structures are experienced from many visual vantage points is an intentional modality that Wright used for many of his works. Wright repeated this artistic feature when he created the Oak Park Unity Temple and again in the Guggenheim museum. Every view of this garden planter offers a remarkable sight. There is even a added design element on the underside of the top lip of the planter.
In this video, D.R. Hendel and one of his artisans remove a mold of a small Oak Park Studio Vase. The outer mold must be unbolted and removed so that no damage is done to the soft silicone inner mold. Removing the soft mold is done with special care as well. The inner mold maintains all of the details of the original and care must be taken upon de-molding to ensure the molds integrity for future castings.
