japonisme: craftsman style

greene and greene, from pasadena, california, remain the architects perhaps most identified with craftsman-style design of homes. with the stonework, the patterns in the stained glass, and the methods of woodwork, structurally as well as aesthetically, these homes owe much inspiration to the japanese.

these stained glass doors are from the entry hall of the robert t. blacker estate in pasadena, 1907-1909, and are on display at
the de young museum in san francisco.
