Thanks for returning to part 2 of this blog series about the exhibit of Tiffany stained glass windows called Eternal Light. Here is more of what I learned as I listened to the audio guided tour through the Driehaus Museum:
As Artistic Director of his studio, Louis Comfort Tiffany oversaw the design process and nothing went to the final stage without his approval. What gave his windows special luminosity was he layered four pieces of cut glass. The glass itself was manufactured “in house.”
The tremendous windows which, at that time, were being installed in many, many churches and cathedrals were the mainstay of his business.
The following are images taken of the Ecclessiastical Windows which were part of the exhibit I was so delighted to see up close!
Do return next week and I’ll tell you about Tiffany’s “sideline” products which ended up in many homes.
