The master of many mediums, Louis Comfort Tiffany is considered one of America's most celebrated decorative artists of the turn of the 20th Century. In the early 1890s, Tiffany developed an artistic practice that involved blending different colours together in glass while it was still in a molten state, to create subtle effects of shading an textures. He called this type of glass Favrile Glass
, which is an old English world meaning "hand-wrought."

(1906), Roundel, Vase
(1900) and more, these glass magnets have been made from thick glass with a magnetised backing, so you can pop them on your fridge, and appreciate these iconic works every day.
