Pate de Verre items are created from a paste of different colored crushed glass particles. These are placed in a mold and then fired in a hot kiln for ten days.The glass particles fuse together forming a solid piece of crystal with color variations. Pate de Verre items are not transparent or shiny like clear crystal. The surface is rougher and there are little bubbles trapped inside. No two Daum pieces are exactly alike. Though the shape is the same, there are color variations from piece to piece.
The ancient lost wax process is used. This enables Daum to execute designs that would not be possible with conventional press molds. Daums mastery of Pate de Verre has earned it a worldwide reputation for excellence. The artisans at Daum are able to capture both fine details and subtle contouring, and each glass sculpture will radiate with light and color.
