Artist's Description

Favrile glass, bronze
Tiffany Studios {1900-1932}

From the collections of the Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland, Ohio
featured in Stained Glass Art & Light up My Life (all about lamps)

Louis Comfort Tiffany was incredibly innovative and single handedly set the stained glass world on a new course. Tiffany came up with an idea to amalgamate bits and pieces of discarded glass thrown off from production of his stained glass windows to form beautiful decorative lamps. Tiffany’s diverse collection of eclectic colors and techniques, known today as Tiffany glass, continues to be in a class of it’s own. Louis Comfort Tiffany was heavily influenced by Japanese art forms in which nature was front and center.
