Michel Coste, a French sculptor born in 1939 in Aix en Provence, combines writing and sculpture in his artwork. He works principally with natural marbles, carving directly into blocks of marble found in streams. This method is recognized as an original and unique approach, and a fundamental study of the medium. He began to experiment with crystal paste for this partnership with Daum for the clarity, luminosity, and translucence that can be achieved for sculpted faces and bodies, giving a new dimension to his work. Marine is a silhouette of a woman frozen in amber crystal. Everything in this piece is done in the spirit of play with light, transparency, and opacity.

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.
