Vase (USA), 1918
Tiffany, well known for his innovations in stained glass, created “reactive glass,” a material that changed color when reheated. This vase’s translucent, warm gold coloring is likely an example of this glass. The abstract leaf and vine pattern appears to have been layered inside of clear glass, which was then reheated to create a golden hue.
