Discover the most beautiful, original and unique Tiffany lamps

The Tiffany Dragonfly lamps are one of the most emblematic examples of American art. They're so beautiful and elegant that even the most jaded eye will find it hard to believe they're made by a woman. The dragonfly shade is made from two metal ribs arranged around an E27 socket. The ribs give the lamp a unique look, and the clear glass shade lets you see what the lamp really looks like. An LED light source works best with this lamp, as it creates the most magical moments.

Tiffany lamps Dragonflies

When Louis Comfort Tiffany first set up shop, it was as an interior designer. He made stained glass windows and lamps and eventually set up a business. In 1879, he began producing dragonfly lamps. Today, the glass lamps and table lamps he created still stand out in a host of modern works of art. While most of his work was based on stained glass, he continued to experiment with the craft and began to produce pieces that stood apart from modern works of art.

Following the success of the Libellules lamps, Tiffany went on to establish several other brands. In 1883, he joined forces with Libellules, which later became Tiffanys First Business Venture. These early brands featured Tiffanys signature designs. The lamps were influenced by Driscolls' interest in nature. Driscoll, a supporter of the arts and crafts movement, used themes from nature to make ordinary objects beautiful. Despite her personal life, Tiffany remained dedicated to her career - she had four daughters by the time she moved away from dragonflies.

While creating the Dragonfly lamps, Tiffany was also exploring other artistic disciplines. He became interested in glassmaking and formed a group of artists in 1879. Members of this group included Samuel Coleman, Candace Wheeler and Lockwood de Forest. His collaborations with these artists became synonymous with the American aesthetic movement. They were also noted for their exotic creations. As well as making lamps and tableware, Tiffany also began designing interiors. The White House was redecorated in 1882 by Tiffany and his associated American artists.

The pebble lamp is another Tiffany creation. Made from sliced quartz pebbles, half of its hue is composed of them. It was estimated to be worth between 100,000 $ and 150,000 $, but sold for 537,500 $. A few years ago, the pebble lamp was sold at auction for 537,500 $. It has become a valuable collectors item. It is now worth millions of dollars. But it is possible to buy beautiful Tiffany lamps at Htdeco for less than 1000 $, discover the complete guide of this online shop htdeco.

The art nouveau style became an influential force during the 20th century. In addition to Art-Deco styles, Tiffany incorporated new technologies into its designs. The style was initially derived from the Art Nouveau movement, which sought to incorporate new technologies into decorative art. By incorporating new technologies into his designs, he made it easier for other artists to follow suit. Tiffanys' work is said to have influenced the development of the decorative arts in America.

Clara Driscolls Design

In addition to the famous dragonfly lampshade, Driscoll designed many other famous lighting objects, including small desk items and vases. The artist-designer was born in Tallmadge, Ohio, and was a talented artist and entrepreneur. After attending the Western Reserve School for Women, Clara Driscoll worked at Tiffany Studios for 20 years, creating lighting fixtures, vases and mosaics.

Tiffany Studios preferred their female workers to remain anonymous, so Clara Driscolls' employment with the company was not officially recognised. Interestingly, Driscolls' name was discovered in a 1904 article mentioning highly paid women in the industry. In 1904 she earned 1820 $, a salary equivalent to many male designers at Tiffany. Despite the fame and wealth associated with her design, Driscolls' career almost ended before it began.

Driscoll was the director and designer of the Matthews glass cutting department at Tiffany Studios. Clara Driscoll was the older of two daughters of Elizur Wolcott and Fannie Pierce. By the time she was twelve, Clara Driscoll was a widow. Her mother encouraged her to pursue higher education and in 1888 she was accepted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She later moved to the Metropolitan Museum Art School, where she honed her skills.

Despite being a seasoned and highly successful designer at Tiffany Studios, Clara Driscolls' personal letters provide a unique account of the working environment at the studios. She was also a respected middle manager who provided valuable insight into life in middle-class America at the turn of the century. At a time when women had only recently begun moving into the city to pursue jobs, Driscoll often worked independently.

Although Clara Driscoll had a limited role in the design of Tiffany Dragonflies, she was a key designer. She designed several decorative objects for the studio, including the wisteria, dragonfly, peony and floating pear. In addition to her creative work, Driscoll also headed the women's cutting department at Tiffany Studios. As well as being an important designer, Driscoll also managed the departments staff, which included over fifty women.

Tiffany lamps in the art nouveau style

The design of Tiffany lamps is based on the designs that adorn glass windows. The design process begins with a watercolour sketch of a proposed motif and progresses through a series of stages that result in a large-scale colour study, which is then approved by Tiffany himself. Once the design has been approved, Tiffany then selects the type of glass to be used in the shade. These pieces required special manufacture and the work of many different craftsmen.

The name Tiffany has become synonymous with all stylish lighting. The brand was originally known for just one lamp, the Tiffany, which has since evolved to encompass a whole category of lamps. Despite the brand name, however, the word Tiffany has become a generic term for anything with a similar design. Some manufacturers, however, have begun to incorporate the word Tiffany into the description of their lamps. While artisan producers continue to make high quality reproductions of Tiffany lamps, they are being swamped by Asian manufacturers. Asian versions are generally more affordable and consistently built than the originals.

The work of Tiffany Studios is a large undertaking, involving dozens of craftsmen. Louis Comfort Tiffany's attention to detail and style helped shape a whole new genre of decorative art. The current exhibition at the Paine Art Center and Gardens is an exciting opportunity to discover the story behind these magnificent lamps and to find out more about the makers. For example, the Paine Art Center and Gardens is hosting an exhibition of Tiffanys lamps, curated by Heritage Lighting of Cedarburg, Wisconsin, and presented by a private collection of the company's famous lamps.
