This new volume illustrates over 50 Tiffany lamps, windows, mosaics, ceramics, and enamels, supplemented by archival photographs and documents. The opening chapter focuses on the objects designed by Clara Driscoll - from the early and experimental. Deep Sea lamp to the popular Wisteria model - and illuminates steps in the design and manufacturing process previously unknown to scholars. The second chapter examines Clara's role as manager of the Women's Class Cutting Department, discusses the role of women within the larger context of the firm, and describes the tension between the men's and women's departments. The final chapter explores Clara's experience as a single working woman in New York City during the 1890s and early 1900s. The volume also features brief biographies of the 63 women designers, selectors, and glass cutters associated with Tiffany Studios.

The radiant and beloved masterworks of leaded glass from the Gilded Age. Louis C. Tiffany s intricate and brilliantly colored masterpieces have captivated collectors for decades, and continue to inspire crafters who re-create them in home workshops today. This collection showcases eighty of the firm s most iconic lamps, including rare and one-of-a-kind creations. These examples have all been newly photographed in sumptuous detail to reveal features in the glass and metalwork that have never been seen before in print. Intricate patterns dazzle with kaleidoscopic fantasies: wisteria that twists and curls with grace, peonies that explode with color, and dragonflies that dance with the light. Uniting a reverence for nature and a fascination with the artistic potential of glass, Louis C. Tiffany and his designers created a revolutionary design aesthetic that brought the beauty of the natural world into the home. This book explores Tiffany Studios innovative adaptation of electric light: sheathing the incandescent light bulb in a shimmering veil of leaded glass. Beautifully designed and produced in an intimate format, "The Lamps of Tiffany Studios" presents a jewel-box package that makes the perfect gift for any art lover."

NATIONAL BESTSELLER It’s 1893, and at the Chicago World’s Fair, Louis Comfort Tiffany makes his debut with a luminous exhibition of innovative stained-glass windows that he hopes will earn him a place on the international artistic stage. But behind the scenes in his New York studio is the freethinking Clara Driscoll, head of his women’s division, who conceives of and designs nearly all of the iconic leaded-glass lamps for which Tiffany will long be remembered. Never publicly acknowledged, Clara struggles with her desire for artistic recognition and the seemingly insurmountable challenges that she faces as a professional woman. She also yearns for love and companionship, and is devoted in different ways to five men, including Tiffany, who enforces a strict policy: He does not employ married women. Ultimately, Clara must decide what makes her happiest—the professional world of her hands or the personal world of her heart.
