Oakbrook Esser Studios is well known for preserving the legacy of "organic architecture" through quality art glass creations inspired by The Prairie School Era.

Straight-line patterns are characteristic of Prairie Style art glass designs. The natural integration of glass inserted into a metal "grille" construction forms a simple rhythmic arrangement of straight lines, squares and severe angles. Zinc, copper and brass "metal came" materials are utilized rather than the traditional lead used in stained glass. Colored glass accents enhance and soften the geometric "screens" providing a sense of privacy without impeding light.

Our skilled artisans design and create custom glasswork in the Prairie Style for businesses and residences throughout the country. Bringing value to your investment, custom glass makes a dramatic first impression adding character and a quality of high standards to any space. With attention to detail, we match your insight, ideas and budget with our capabilities for quality leaded glass creations, working with you to accomplish your specific design goals.


Whether building new or making improvements custom glass is an excellent choice. Our leaded glass windows are displayed and framed in a variety of ways, to suit your artistic vision and architectural requirements. Our work is handcrafted to order and may take 2 to 5 months to complete.
