Tiffany Style Stained Glass Salt Lake City
At Salt Lake City Stained Glass we often hear the term “Tiffany Glass” Or “Tiffany Style” Stained Glass” which is a style was pioneered, invented and refined in the Tiffany studios between 1878 to 1933 at the Tiffany Studios. Louis Comfort Tiffany and a team of other designers, like Clara Driscoll, inspired by Roman and Syrian stained glass, were driven to create a richer toned, unpainted stained glass. They wanted the glass itself to transmit texture and rich colors and succeed in doing this with a glass type product called Favrile. The Tiffany style has since become a beloved American look and one we at Salt Lake City Stained Glass get requests for quite frequently.

Opalescent glass: The term “opalescent glass” is commonly used to describe glass where more than one color is present. It is very shiny with an almost raw pearl-like quality.
Favrile Glass: Often has a distinctive characteristic that is common in some glass from Classical antiquity: it possesses a superficial iridescence. This iridescence causes the surface to shimmer but also causes a degree of opacity.
Ripple Glass: Ripple glass refers to textured glass with marked surface waves. Tiffany made use of such textured glass to represent, for example, water or leaf veins.
