Stipple glass captures the waxy, ice-like look of the authentic Tiffany style. Colors appear to tear through the glass rather than bleed and become muddy as in many opals.
Artists recommend premium hand-made Stipple art glass from Youghiogheny. Read what fine glass studios, like Paul Crist, have to say about Stipple glass:
"The remarkable quality about stipple glass is the unique way in which it disperses light. Traditional mottled glasses impart an orangish gray cast to the glass. Stipple glass uses crystalline to disperse light, allowing color to come through the glass unaltered by the opal. Greens are crisp and leafy; reds are pure ruby; pinks and magentas sing with a vibrancy never seen before in art glass. The artists here at Paul Crist Studios have used stipple glass in a number of recent lamps, and attest that it's the perfect glass to make lamps with." - Paul Crist, Owner of Odyssey, and Paul Crist Studios
