Things I Love About Louis Comfort Tiffany

Louis Comfort Tiffany's art studio, Tiffany house, 1900

  • He was wildly rich, eccentric and talented!
  • He had brilliant 'theme' fetes with names like The Peacock Ball that were designed simply to expose his guests to his version of beauty.

  • He had the most dramatic ‘studio’ I have ever seen.

  • After years of experimentation working with chemists and glass artists he invented ‘favrile’ glass which captures the iridescence you find on insect wings and feathers.

  • He valued beauty above all else.

Invitation for Louis special 'Studio Hearthwarming.'

Don't forget to show up in costume!
