Tiffany Studios

Louis Comfort Tiffany was a son of the New York Jeweler Tiffany. Eight of the windows in the Third Presbyterian Church sanctuary were designed and built by Tiffany Studios.

L.C. Tiffany invented a new glass technique he called "Favrile Glass." This was a composition of various colored glasses which were worked together while hot. This glass was notable for its metallic iridescence with no pigment added to the glass all the color was in the glass.

Tiffany argued that the "decorative arts" were more important to man than the "fine arts." He devoted his talents to "making things of use beautiful."
