These are placed in a mold and then fired in a hot kiln for ten days. The glass particles fuse together forming an attractive Pate de Verre item. No two Daum Pate de Verre items have the same exact coloration because the particles are distributed differently in the molds. The ancient lost wax process is used which enables Daum to execute designs that would not be possible with traditional press molding. Daum has posted a video that walks you through the Paté de Verre process.
Daum has been one of Frances leading art glass creators and innovators for many decades. They rank alongside Lalique and Baccarat at the forefront of this prominent French industry.
In recent years, Daum has led the development and popularization of the Pate de Verre process. Every Daum Pate de Verre piece Is Unique. No two Daum crystal pieces are exactly alike. Daum's unique and meticulous production technique leaves their crystal multi-faceted: Lighter when light seeps through, darker and more mysterious in absence of light.
Bubbles and variations in finish are part of the handmade nature of these items. In the Pate de Verre process, tiny beads of glass are kiln fired For 10 days and fuseed together in a mold.The nature of pâte de verre are the bubbles, rough sculpted edges, etc. These pieces are not shiny, transparent, and smooth like traditional crystal items.
