We keep the tradition of Tiffany Studios New York (1880-1930) 
leaded glass lamp making alive.

Our Philosophy of Work

Just as orchestras of the modern world 
faithfully reproduce the classical works 
of the past, we follow the artisan 
tradition of Tiffany Lamp manufacture 
in our studio.

The patterns and forms of Tiffany's 
stained glass lamp shades developed 
at the end of the 19th century are like 
the musical scores handed down by 
the geat masters.

Our methods are largely identical to 
these originals , and often we use the 
same  American stained glass and 
material suppliers, which still exist to 
this day. Here are two documents from 
the archive of 
which is still in business today after more
than 120 years:

Nautilus Lamps and  Nautilus Shells

Principally, the work we do in our studio does not 
differ much from that of each classical orchesta 
of the world:

The orchestra each time presents the handed down 
score of an OLD  MASTER in a new interpretation
to the enjoyment of the listener. 

Our hand down scores are the patterns and the 
forms of stained glass lampshades which were 
developed under LOUIS COMFORT TIFFANY`S  
direction at the end of the 19th and beginning of 
the 20th century.

The "instruments" we use are still the same which 
were used then:   COLORED GLASS.
In some cases we even buy our glass at the same 
factories which TIFFANY-STUDIOS  did.

Please find some samples of KOKOMO glass 
we use in our studio here.
