Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) was an artist, interior designer, and decorative arts entrepreneur whose work was inspired by a lifelong fascination with nature. His stained-glass work in lighting produced exquisite lamp shades, primarily for residential use. While early industrial designers admired the exposed bulb in new electric lighting, as we see in the Nickerson Mansion ceilings, Tiffany applied his artistic approach to shades that covered the bulb entirely and directed light downward to softly light the dark interiors common at the turn of the century.
Tiffany Studios designs in our glass ornaments depict the leaded glass shades just as the artist intended them to be viewed...from above. Each ornament will bring the color, light, and forms Tiffany found in nature's omnipresent beauty into any space.

Museum Glass Art is made in the USA, utilizing a patent-pending dye sublimation process that creates a uniquely formatted light-scattering coating on ultra-clear polished edge float glass. This process crafts a translucent and almost three-dimensional effect, and the resulting panel is highly resistant to fading in all conditions, including direct sunlight.
