Now that I’ve gathered some background information on Tiffany Studios and Clara Driscoll, I hope to investigate the specific relationships among Tiffany workers and relate them back to the overall time period. In particular, I am looking forward to visiting the Queens Historical Society, which will afford me the opportunity to look at letters written by Clara Driscoll regarding her work at Tiffany Studios. Based on these letters and research gathered from books and articles, I hope to be able to draw some conclusions on the relationships that Clara had with her workers at the Women’s Glass Cutting Department, and also her relationship with Louis Tiffany. From what I have gathered so far by reading A New Light on Tiffany: Clara Driscoll and the Tiffany Girls, Clara did respect Louis Tiffany and had a well-developed relationship with him. As a distinguished designer of Tiffany Studios, Clara was also paid comparably to her male counterparts. I hope to relate this information to the time period, particularly since Clara lived during the days of the Industrial Revolution. Finally, I hope to look at some of the other designers and artisans at Tiffany Studios besides Clara Driscoll. Although she was one of the biggest contributors to Tiffany Studios’s exquisite products, there were also a few designers who were distinguished in their products but did not receive the same fame as Clara does today. I will continue to research and will let you know of my findings next week.
