Many artisans at Tiffany Studios worked together to create this lamp, designed by Clara Driscoll. The blown glass body was produced by talented glassmakers, and a glass selector masterfully chose and cut sections of glass to make the leaded glass shade.
Rippled glass was selected for water along the rim, iridescent glass for the dragonfly’s wings, and pressed glass “jewels” for the dragonfly’s eyes. Learn more in our refreshed “Tiffany Studios” gallery.
