Summary

The undisputed master of the glass, Louis Comfort Tiffany created decorative works of art utilizing colour, light, and texture, while employing his taste for exoticism and ornamentation, forging a unique and spectacular style. Internationally celebrated in his day, his creations are sought out by collectors worldwide today. Tiffany began his career as an interior designer, but unable to find the types of glass that he desired, his interest turned towards the creation of stained glass. In 1878, he opened his own studio and glass foundry. His creativity and originality both as a designer of windows, lamps, and vases, and as a producer of the material with which to create them quickly became renowned. In addition to exploring Tiffany's domestic interiors, the book focuses on Tiffany's dazzling and dramatic work on religious and secular stained glass, vases, and lamps. Included in the book are 250 lavish colour plates that examine in rich detail the fine workmanship and inventive techniques of Tiffany and his studio. In addition, the book includes vintage photographs, drawings, and sketches that provide further insight into his creative process.
