« Pâte de verre » : a bit of history

The molten glass is probably the oldest glassmaking techniques dating back to 5000 BC. Egyptians and Phoenicians made from it jewelry, precious amulets and decorations for the funerary furniture.

Quickly challenged by the blow, this technique gradually disappeared.

In the late nineteenth century, the « Pâte de verre » is again used by Henry CROS, symbolist sculptor fascinated by archeology. His research sparked other vocations such as the Albert DAMMOUSSE ceramics, industrial Georges DESPRET, Ringel ILLZACH, and Amalric WALTER hired by the brothers to DAUM NANCY.

The « Pâte de verre » is now represented by the House DAUM that it is the trademark.
