~HAPPY BIRTHDAY . . LOUIS COMFORT TIFFANY / MET AMERICAN WING
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY to LOUIS COMFORT TIFFANY,
born on this day, FEB 18, 1848 !!
ALTHOUGH TIFFANY worked in nearly every artistic medium, including painting, watercolor, ceramics, furniture, textiles, and metalwork, he is best known for his work in glass.
A TRUE VISIONARY, TIFFANY worked with expert glass makers to create new glass formulas that resulted in revolutionary colors and textures, such as the rough Lava or ‘volcanic’ glass used for this bowl.
Bowl, by Louis C. Tiffany and Tiffany Studios, ca. 1908.”

note: I’m thinking it should read, “worked in nearly every artistic medium”, . . . available during his life.
he handled many precious materials that not easy to get hold of today, and many skills have been lost; on one side – on the other . . digital imaging, or even acrylic, or even spray paint – was to be, born.
