Jimmy Stewart, one of only nine gaffers ever employed by Tiffany Studios New York's glassworks, claimed that the organic feel of Louis Comfort Tiffany's "Cypriote" glass vases was created by marvering broken bits of glass onto the gather during the artistic process. This technique, though certainly part of the process, would not have produced the exact decorative effect of each of the "Cypriote" glass vases, making each one a bit of an artistic mystery.
