The Lamps of Louis Comfort Tiffany
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
'Nature is always beautiful,' wrote Louis Comfort Tiffany, and the forms of leaves and flowers inspired the Art Nouveau glassware for which he is renowned. This handsome volume features more than 70 rarely seen lamps from public and private collections, sets them in the context of contemporary thought, and follows the complex manufacturing process from freehand sketch to finished form. Stunning modern photographs reveal Tiffany's mastery of glassmaking and metalwork, alongside his own watercolours and period photographs of his workshops.
