A New Light on Tiffany is a traveling exhibit that highlights the work of Clara Driscoll (1861-1944), head of the women’s glass cutting department, who discovered a way to incorporate stained glass into lamps.

Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) was the son of Charles Tiffany, founder of the Tiffany & Co. jewelery company. Louis Tiffany’s artistic inspiration often came from nature, and the lily pads in his Oyster Bay, Long Island pond inspired the pond lily globe lamp, c. 1906.
