Illuminating Experience

“I have a newfound respect for the women who designed lead glass lampshades for Louis Comfort Tiffany,” says Margy Ziegler of MZ Glassworks. “I just designed and crafted my first lampshade, and I am delighted with the result. Like with anything new you are crafting, there are puzzlers in the process but it came together beautifully!”

Margy says, “until she read the fictional art history novel, Clara and Mr. Tiffany, she was unaware of the division of women designers that were behind the man, Louis Comfort Tiffany. It was a real eye-opener, and one of the most memorable books I have read. Of course, it was right up my alley but, many individuals have enjoyed the book simply because the story takes you back to 1893 and the early beginnings of the infamous Tiffany Studios.”

If you like historical art fiction or enjoy learning about how things are made, put Clara and Mr. Tiffany by Susan Vreeland on your “To Read List.”

MZ Glassworks is expanding their custom offerings with leaded glass lampshades, as another way of “spreading color and light everywhere.”
