Berangaria Lefebvre Lamps Design March 26, 2018 16:09:22
Tiffany made the lamps by soldering pieces of cut colored glass that he had left over from stained glass windows he had made years earlier. He cut various types and colors of glass according to a pattern that he designed.
For those who loved colored glass Tiffany lamps are a perfect lighting choice. The original Tiffany lamps were designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany and he loved some of the beautiful rich tones that were often used in mosaics in Byzantium. He worked to take these colors and add them to the glass instead of painting the glass. These lamps are actually made from beautiful stained glass that is hand cut. Each piece of the stained glass gets a piece of copper foil wrapped around it then it is glued together and lead is used to solder the different pieces of glass together. There are often seeds lines and bubbles that occur in the glass which actually add to the natural beauty of this special type of glass used for these lamps.
