Rare and Remarkable—Art Pottery of Louis Comfort Tiffany

A comprehensive look into the rare art pottery of Louis Comfort Tiffany.

This exhibition provides a comprehensive look into the rare pottery of Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933). Produced between 1900 and 1917, Tiffany’s art pottery was encouraged by the reverberations of the Centennial Exhibition of 1876 and ultimately defined by the artist’s never-ending experimentation. The Museum’s collection is the largest public collection of Tiffany pottery anywhere in the world.
Tiffany, inspired by the nationwide trend that saw ceramics as part of every decorative arts company’s product line, innovated on the craze with French influences. Complex glazing and unconventional forms distinguished Tiffany’s creations from the stylish pottery of the time. Only 2,000 pieces are thought to have been produced by Tiffany and even fewer survive today.
A highlight of the exhibition are three crocus vases of the same mold, two of which the Museum acquired in the past year. The new pieces are marked A-Coll, affirming that they were retained by Tiffany for his own curated collection at Laurelton Hall, his Long Island estate. They are on view for the first time. The display of the Morse Museum’s uniquely vast holdings of Tiffany pottery celebrates the design genius’s experimentation with the ceramic medium that, in his pursuit of beauty, he couldn’t resist.
