The collaboration between Daum and celebrated Surrealist artist Salvador Dali began in 1968 with "La Fleur du Mal, " his first piece in a long series with the atelier. The translucency of Daum's crystal paste offered Dali the appropriate medium through which to express the metamorphoses suggested to him by his "paranoid and critical" perception of reality. In "Debris Automobile Horse, " the fragments of a car are pieced together to form a blind horse with a telephone in its mouth. This piece, inspired by one of Dali's paintings, denounces the era of mechanization.

Daum, the legendary glassmaker master, has kept alive for more than a century a love relationship with the greatest artists of its time, giving their work of art a second life of crystal and colours. From the Ecole de Nancy, from Art Nouveau to Art Decoratif, from Majorelle to Dali, Arman and Hilton McConnico, Daum has not missed any of the magic rendez-vous of the artistic creation and modern savoir-faire, which has always renewed the alliance of art and art craft.

Few brands have worked with as many artists: for nearly 140 years, more than 350 exceptional signatures have constituted a heritage beyond compare, a unique collection.

How to convey those works into crystal sculptures? This is where Daum's secret lies, shaper of the exception, highly knowledgeable workshop, laboratory of wonders, designer of incomparable objects. All of the Daum pieces are lovingly hand produced in France, using traditional lost wax sculpting technique.
