Publisher Description

Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) found inspiration in the gardens of Laurelton Hall, his vast country estate on Long Island's North Shore. There, Tiffany carefully drew and painted the flowering trees, vines, flowers, and fauna that were the chief ornaments of his prized glass lamps. This sumptuous volume features 70 lamps, photographed by Colin Cooke using his own specially developed techniques that reveal Tiffany's mastery of glassmaking and metal work. The authors relate the chief decorative themes in Tiffany's masterpieces to the work of other fin-de-siecle glassmakers and outline the making of Tiffany's lamps, from freehand sketch to elegant finished form.
