Sculpture in crystal and patinated bronze Eyes in yellow sapphires and onyx, mounted Well-renowned on the international scene for her bird sculptures, Madeleine van der Knoop observes her subject closely down to the most minute details before beginning a sketch of her work, where movement occupies a primordial dimension. From this collaboration between Daum and van der Knoop is born a sumptuous piece in crystal paste. A symbol of glory, power, and victory, the Royal Eagle is considered the bird of the gods in mythology, and thus has become an allegory for spiritual elevation. L'Aigle Prestige" in Daum's signature paste crystal exhibits an exceptional mastery of the lost wax technique. The crystal sculpts the light that bounces off of it and highlights all the force and beauty of this imposing raptor and its dominating presence.

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.
