When you hear about stained glass, often Tiffany stained glass comes to mind whether it is a stained glass lamp, a stained glass window or some other piece of stained glass art. Sometimes, stained glass artwork is called Tiffany glass when, in fact, it is anything but. When it comes to Tiffany windows or Tiffany stained glass lamps, there is a unique style and set of artistic characteristics that set it apart from other stained glass artwork.

Tiffany Stained Glass History

In looking at the history of Tiffany stained glass, it was developed by American artist Louis Comfort Tiffany who worked from the 1870s through the 1920s on developing leaded glass windows, mosaics, Tiffany stained glass lamps, jewelry and interior designs that matched his vision of the decorative arts.  Rather than resorting to the traditional method of his day that involved painting clear glass, Louis Comfort Tiffany was more interested in creating colored glass and textured glass to enhance the depth and sense of movement .

Through the Tiffany studios, stained glass was revolutionized, which enabled stained glass to use a wider color palette with variegated shades of the same hues or even different hues. The Tiffany studios also developed different types of glass like Favrile glass, which allowed stained glass artists to add greater pictorial details to the Tiffany stained glass panels.

Another impressive achievement in Tiffany stained glass history was patenting an opalescent glass, which provided a milky or rainbow colored appearance, changing the light effects from the stained glass and emulating a painting without painting the glass. This provided a new and brilliant way to include images like sunsets, water features, and landscape scenes in a way that realistically captured their beauty and color variance.

The Tiffany studios produced Tiffany stained glass between 1878 and 1933. Since then, many stained glass artists and stained glass manufacturers have made reproductions of Tiffany stained glass or have created stained glass designs that reflected the Tiffany style. The Tiffany stained glass remains a favorite in terms of its beauty and revolutionary process for stained glass.

The Beauty of Tiffany Stained Glass

Tiffany studios developed a very unique type of stained glass that has a beauty all of its own.  Original Tiffany stained glass windows are found throughout the United States in churches, commercial buildings, residences and museums.

Coming out of the Art Nouveau movement, Tiffany stained glass is known for its curved lines with many organic images, such as vines, leaves, and flowers as well as ornamental animal figures and female forms with flowing hair and clothing.  Considered both a decorative and practical item for a home or church, Tiffany stained glass windows were – and continue to be – treasured for their artistic value.
