Tiffany lighting designed by Clara Driscoll
Tiffany lamps designed by Clara Driscoll are emblematic pieces of the Art Nouveau movement and American design of the early twentieth century. Clara Driscoll was an American designer who worked for the famous company Tiffany Studios in New York, where she created some of the most famous designs of Tiffany lamps. Tiffany lamps are colored and leaded glass lamps, which were produced on a large scale by Tiffany Studios beginning in the 1890s. Clara Driscoll's designs have been highly appreciated for their elegance, beauty and originality. She has created several models of lamps, including the Wisteria lamp, the Dragonfly lamp, the Peacock lamp and the Lotus lamp.
The Wisteria lamp is perhaps one of Clara Driscoll's best-known designs. It consists of hundreds of pieces of colored glass assembled to create clusters of hanging flowers in wisteria. The Dragonfly lamp features dragonfly wings made of colored glass, while the Peacock lamp features a large colored glass peacock feather in its center.
Tiffany lamps designed by Clara Driscoll are now highly sought after by collectors and design enthusiasts. They are considered museum pieces and are exhibited in many art and history museums in the United States and around the world.
