Stained Glass & Sailboats

Due to the recent increase of winter weather, there's been a dramatic decrease in colour and vibrance here on HelloQuilala.  This is the post to remedy that!  A visit to Navy Pier and the Smith Museum of Stained Glass couldn't have come at a better time.
Louis Comfort Tiffany.  He didn't just make lamps, you know ;)
“Two Angels" 1910, stained glass, copper foil and lead. [Louis Comfort Tiffany]
Three Irises c. 1900
Three Irises is a bit of a mystery.  It was found in a Chicago-area house and it's designer and fabricator are unknown.  Now it's in a gallery hanging next to works by Louis Comfort Tiffany and John LaFarge.  How cool is that?
