Clara Driscoll (15 December 1861 – 6 November 1944) of Tallmadge, Ohio, was director of the Tiffany Studios’ Women’s Glass Cutting Department (the “Tiffany Girls”), in New York City. They chose the colors and type of glass to be used in the studios’ famous glass items. Before her arrival the lamps had a static and geometric look and feel. As the creative force behind the Tiffany lamp she was director, designer and crafter of the more than thirty Tiffany lamps produced by the company; among them the famous Wisteria, Dragonfly, Peony, and from all accounts her first… the Tiffany Daffodil Table Lamp.
Virtually nothing was known about Driscoll until quite recently. It had always been thought that Louis Comfort Tiffany was the chief designer behind the greatest of the Tiffany leaded lamps
