Commission Projects Welcome

This paintings was so much more work than
I anticipated but I really like the way it turned out.
Tiffany Lamps are fascinating. There are so many
little pieces that make all he curves and designs of
the lamps. 
My friend was bog into stained glass. I was going
to get into it with her until I cut my first piece and my
finger along with it. That was my first and last try.
I'll stick with painting!

A Tiffany Lamp is a type of lamp with many different types of glass shade. The most famous was the stained leaded glass lamp. Tiffany lamps are considered part of the Art Nouveau.

The first Tiffany lamp was created around 1895. Beautiful in design and intricacy, each lamp was handmade by skilled craftsmen, not mass or machine produced. Its designer was not, as had been thought for over 100 years, Louis Comfort Tiffany, but a previously unrecognized artist named Clara Driscoll was identified in 2007 by  Rutgers professor Martin Eidelberg  as being the master designer behind the most creative and valuable leaded glass lamps produced.

The Tiffany craftsman used geometric shapes such as triangles, squares, rectangles, and ovals to form these patterns for these lamps. Next is the Transition to Flowers group, which is subdivided into the Flowered Cone and Globe lamps. All of these lamps follow a nature, or botanical, design using flowers, dragonflies, spiders with webs, butterflies, and peacock feathers. The difference within these two smaller categories is the difference in the lamp shapes, basically a cone and a globe by Tiffany Studios.
