Tiffany glass art is like painting with glass. Individual pieces of glass are soldered together with the help of copper foil. Light breathes life into the glass objects with an enchanting play of colors.

Tiffany glass art is a special glass processing technique that was developed at the end of the 19th century by the American artist Louis Comfort Tiffany. This technique is also known as the "copper foil technique" or "Tiffany style".
Tiffany glass art consists of creating works of art by joining individual pieces of glass using copper foil and soldering. A design is first created, which then serves as a template. The required pieces of glass in different colors and shapes are then selected and cut to size. The cut edges of the glass pieces are then sanded.
Each piece of glass is then edged with a thin copper foil and then attached to the adjoining pieces of glass. The copper foil serves as a connecting element and enables the individual pieces of glass to be joined together. The copper foils are then soldered with a soldering iron and tin to create a stable connection.

When all the glass pieces are joined together, the artwork is cleaned and polished with special polishing agents to achieve a shiny surface.
Tiffany glass art makes it possible to create complex and ornate designs using different colors and textures of glass. This technique is often used to create lampshades, window pictures, jewelry and other decorative objects.
