Charles Hajdamach and Tiffany Lamps

Louis Comfort Tiffany was America’s foremost exponent of Art Nouveau. Jeweller, painter, designer and architect he is most famous for his richly decorated glassware. Commissioned to produce stained glass windows, Tiffany also produced sumptuous lamps with naturalistic decoration drawn from flora and fauna. His most famous lamps with their Dragonfly leaded glass shades consistently reach record prices at auction.

Charles Hajdamach BA (Hons), one of the top authorities on glass in the UK, will be visiting Noosa on Saturday 25 October when he will provide an insight into Tiffany’s rebellious nature when he talks at the ADFAS monthly meeting. Mr Hajdamach has lectured in America, Canada, South Africa and Ireland and has written extensively on the glass. He is the author of British Glass 1800-1914 and British 20th Century Glass and contributor to numerous books, journals and magazines. Mr Hadjamach was formerly lecturer at the University of Wolverhampton

Those attending the meeting will have the chance of speaking to Mr Hajdamach when refreshments are served after his lecture.
