The formation of Tiffany studios as reiterated by last week’s blog post came from an artistic inspiration in the mind of Louis Comfort Tiffany, who was raised in a higher class in the hierarchy ladder. This week’s blog post focuses more on the life, inspirations, and the many results produced by Tiffany the man, not the company. Not falling too far from his purpose in life, Tiffany began his career as a painter, and became deeply interested in glass making from the period of 1875. It was this passion that drove him to learn the craft and, through his father’s connections, he was able to thrive in a new business he had opened. He left the first business he had opened Louis Comfort Tiffany and Associated American Arts in order to pursue a more interesting career. His expertise in art and glass led him to pursue making objects of glass through art. In other words, he sought an artistic form of cutting glass. Like a flower blossoming, the idea of art in glass led to the making of the now famous Tiffany Studios.
