According to daletiffany.com, Tiffany is known for utilizing the copper foil technique, a glass assembly method used by Louis Comfort Tiffany over 100 years ago. No two Tiffany pieces are exactly the same thanks to this method of production.

Today, Dale Tiffany features stained glass, reverse-painted glass as part of his company's repertoire when attempting to replicate the works of Louis Comfort Tiffany, Philip J. Handel and Pairpoint. Inspired by these designers, Tiffany draws from them and blends modern designs into his creations.

After 35 years of reproducing classic Tiffany designs, Tiffany's focus is on reproducing the colors in the hand-rolled glass using ring-mottled glass. According to daletiffany.com, this hand-casting technique allows them to recreate the original look of the bronze-sculpted bases by pouring the metal into a mold. Tiffany is known for cutting and soldering each glass piece together by hand.
