He started working with colored glass in the 1870s and made many stained glass windows for churches, often using flowers and plants in his designs. Following on from this he teamed up with two other artist to found Louis Comfort Tiffany and Associated American Artists, a company specializing in glass windows, a prime example of which can be seen in the White House.
The company was dissolved in 1885 and he started the Tiffany Glass Company, alone this time. His later became the Tiffany Studios which made Tiffany lamps. When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb in 1879 he was inspired to make glass lampshades, drawing on his experience with stained glass windows and incorporating the flower and plant designs he had used for them. He also used the same methods as he had used for the windows, making paper patterns of the design and using these to cut the glass pieces, edging the pieces with copper foil and soldering them together to construct the lampshades.He patented the Nautilus lampshade, a shell shaped design, and included this when he staged his first exhibition in 1899.
