Stotlar-DeMattei Home

InFocus visits the Ed M. Stotlar home owned by Clarence and Mary Jean DeMattei in Marion to find out more about an amazing discovery the DeMatteis uncovered as they restored the 1914 era Prairie School style home: decorative glass in the home designed by renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright, including an abstract of a eucalyptus tree and glass embedded in a bookcase with colonial crown canes, created by a process called electroglazing. Both glass pieces bear Wright’s signature red square. The Stotlar-DeMattei home is on the National Register of Historic Sites. Clarence and WSIU producer Jak Tichenor also travel to the Williamson County Historical Society to check out the building’s foyer, which contains glass with similar Wright motifs and framing.
