Join artist Sarah Segovia as she reveals the distinctive techniques used by Louis Comfort Tiffany and his colleagues to produce the complex stained glass designs as seen in the recent exhibition The Brilliance of Louis Comfort Tiffany: Painter and Craftsman. Segovia will demonstrate the unique copper foil method used by this famous artist to create the intricate stained glass designs seen in Tiffany’s famous lampshades and windows.

Segovia, Bristol born Connecticut native, received her BFA in Painting from the Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford.
