Wonderful Windows

Wonderful Windows

A few words and photos about Richard Klettings use of glass.

Kletting used stained glass to decorate his buildings.
Leaded glass was also used to accent the works.
Kletting would have ordered the glass windows from contemporary glass
makers including Tiffany.

He would decorate this way in both residential and commercial buildings.
I have chosen a few Salt Lake City windows for this entry.

140 2nd Avenue

153 C Street
While photographing this house a worker stopped to chat with me.
I asked if there was anything different or unique about the house.
He told me in the leaded glass windows the
round glass inserts are beveled which
he hadn't seen in any other house he
had worked on.

174 B Street

273 6th Avenue
These two photos (above and below) show the care Kletting had for his first wife.
He designed this home for her following their divorce.

These two windows (above and below) show both a geometric and floral design.
Both adorn the building at 411 E. 100 South.
