Looking north in the living room. The living room, along with bedroom and drafting room were completed early on in Taliesin West's history, but were not initially glassed in during the early "rough and ready" years.

This pot, in the anteroom adjoining the living room, claimed pride of precedence over the window glazing, as did its larger counterpart in the living room.

The pot was in place before the windows were added -- and Frank Lloyd Wright decided that the pot wasn't going to move.
