The magnificent Tiffany Lamps

It has been recorded that the first Tiffany lamp was created around 1895 which is incredible in itself as there is so much color and making one of these is not as simple as it looks.

Having said it is not easy to make one does not mean you cannot.  With the right equipment and a lot of patience anyone can make one.  Although I would suggest that you make lots of other things before trying something as magnificent and intricate as these.

Some consist of hundreds of little pieces of glass being cut out and then soldered together.  This is where the patience comes into it.  To learn more about these beautiful lamps read more
