Arthur Stern Studios

Arthur Stern opened his architectural and art glass studio in Oakland in 1976, after studying architecture and environmental design at the University of Illinois and CCAC in Oakland. After a few years of teaching at CCAC, he relocated his studio to an 8500 square-foot space in Benicia, about 40 minutes north of Oakland, just over the Carquinez Straits from the East Bay, and has been producing a wide range of really exceptional work there since 1994. His work is squarely in the Prairie tradition, and Stern specializes in the restoration of Frank Lloyd Wright glass. Please take a look at the galleries at his site, including the work for sale (especially the amazing screens and sculptural pieces - he also has some brilliantly-colored oil pastels and very textural mixed-media pieces using similar geometric forms).

One particular highlight of Stern's career - well-illustrated on his site - is the Pearson Residence in Mill Valley, California, recently featured on Home & Garden Television.
