Louis Comfort Tiffany

tags: ,

After having visited the Seattle Art Museum’s Louis Tiffany exhibition the Wikepedia summary of his skills feels understated and accurate:  
 
"Tiffany was a painter and interior decorator and designed stained glass windows and lamps, glass mosaics, blown glass, ceramics, jewelry, enamels and metalwork."
 
He painted in oils and water colours,   he designed Jewelry,   wallpaper, balustrades and fire-gaurds.   His more famous work involves developing original glass production (Patents) and finishing techniques for windows,   vases and lamps.   What versatiale skills.   Such beautiful objects.   The  exhibit includes a window  produced for Mark Twain.   His influences include, a personal favourite, William Morris and  John Ruskin.   The UK Pre-Raphaelite ‘brothers’ designed many church stained glass windows.  
 
I highly recommend seeing this exhibition.    It’s definitely not all about glass and lamps.
