Tiffany Autumn Vine
Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848–1933) was an American artist and designer who studied in New York and Paris and is most associated with the Art Nouveau movement. His unique creations include leaded glass windows and lamps, glass mosaics, blown glass, ceramics, jewellery, enamels and metalwork. This book cover celebrates the brilliant, gem-like colours and elegant designs created by Tiffany and his artisans. Using a technical innovation in glass production involving opalescent glass in a variety of colours, Tiffany eliminated the need for painted decoration. The incorporation of leadwork as an integral part of the designs and the subtle and exquisite differences in shading within each portion of glass created objects of magical beauty.
