Daum have been at the forefront of pioneering modern glassmaking for 130 years.
Flourishing in the Decorative Arts Movement and Art Nouveau period, The Daum effect still has so much relevance in our modern world. Daum is now developing rapid prototyping methods by means of digital research
Daum Glass was first famous for creating a glass covering for the electric light in 1920, but has come a long way since. Working with artists Salvador Dali, Paloma Picasso and Roland Topor to name but a few, it is only right that Daum has become the latest member of Lalique`s luxury portfolio which also includes artisanal brand Haviland.
Vase Cerisier Bijoux
Daum fuses together ancient glassmaking techniques with contemporary flair to create decorative crystal pieces inspired by shapes, tones and colours found within the natural world.
The skilled Daum craftsmen who honed their skills have produced some of the most historically important glass pieces. The lost wax and the páte de cristal techniques are just two revolutionary skills founded in 1968 that are still in practice today.
This iconic style is translated through every collection, including the Paradise range which is instantly recognisable with a focus on subtle pastel hues and a nod to birdlife and flowers. The Birds of Paradise (Oiseau de Paradis) vase for example is meticulously sculpted to make it appear as if the exotic birds are in flight and the vase is in movement.

Along a similar vein, the delicate flowers on the Deep Green Cherry Blossom Jewel Vase have been painstakingly polished to achieve a sparkling transparency reminiscent of how they would appear in their natural environment.
Glass ornaments have a new marker set.
