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
Kokomo Opalescent Glass,
which is in business til today:



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 today are the same which were used then: 


In some cases we even buy our glass at the same factories which Tiffany- Studios did.
