Jon DeCelles began sculpting on little stones with a simple steak knife. with a great passion for sculpting faces, the artist decided to take sculpture courses and study the art in earnest. He received expert recognition and several awards for his work. Over the course of twenty years, Decelles' realistic figures evolved into abstract ones. He is capable of sculpting monumental pieces weighing over 600 kgs, and also miniature pieces measuring 2 cm. This piece, "Maternity, " made of Daum crystal, was inspired by the birth of Decelles' sons, and the softness and comfort that a mo the r's arms give to a child. with their eyes closed, the y have frozen this moment for eternity. This crystal sculpture in a soft pink shade is full of tenderness, and invites us to indulge in touch and contemplation.

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.
