Inventing Tiffany’s Glass

In reviewing Eternal Light by Catherine Shotick, the Catholic Herald notes that Louis Comfort Tiffany’s invention of Favrile stained glass was one of the most interesting of modern vivals in the lost techniques of the medieval and Renaissance periods.


“Tiffany and the team of chemists he employed discovered a way to mix multiple colours within a single pane of glass, which allowed for far greater realism in stained glass than had been achieved before.”
