This glistening beautiful glass will make ANY art glass project stand out. Not intended for heat-treating with paints or fusing. These Lustre Eggs have a golden/platinum shimmer different than iridescent that is baked into each artisanally made, hand-rolled glass sheet. The Lustre Egg sheets are not often found normally in any glass shop and is usually sold per pound as a whole sheet. The Sprouted Plate offers them in smaller divided options so you can still enjoy to use this gorgeous glass, but not dedicate so much money to one color when there is so many to try. With our 4 different buying options, you can be as dedicated to one or as many colors as you would like. 

These Lustre-rich finished eggs were made by an amazing glass maker named Jay Redington with in Wisconsin. He makes this glass with a gold iridescent surface also called Favrile (Tiffany) and Aurene (Steuben) glass. He also creates beautiful vases, lampshades, paperweights, and tiles like the  prism tiles, turtleback tiles, chicklet, round, bullet, moon face, and bubble tiles. 🤩 His style of glass making was used back in late 1800’s early 1900’s and he’s still keeping the art alive.

Favrile glass is a type of iridescent art glass developed by Louis Comfort Tiffany. He patented this process in 1894 and first produced the glass for manufacture in 1896 in Queens, New York. It differs from most iridescent glasses because the color is ingrained in the glass itself, as well as having distinctive coloring. Tiffany won a grand prize at the 1900 Paris Exposition for his Favrile glass.

Steuben Glass (Aurene Gold Glass) is a type of ornamental glass with an iridescent surface made by spraying the glass with stannous chloride or lead chloride and reheating it under controlled atmospheric conditions. It is also an American art glass manufacturer, founded in the summer of 1903 by Frederick Carder and Thomas G. Hawkes (of Corning Glass)(The same as The Corning Museum of Glass!) in Corning, New York, which is in Steuben County, from which the company name was derived. Carder's greatest love was colored glass which he began to experiment with until he soon perfected Gold Aurene which is similar to iridescent art glass that was being produced by Tiffany and others at the time. Gold Aurene was followed by a wide range of colored art glass that eventually was produced in more than 7,000 shapes and 140 colors.
