From the Caribbean to Madagascar to Indonesia, leaves from bamboo, banana, and coconut trees are braided in the art of basket weaving. This ancestral practice requires only fresh leaves and excellent dexterity; its use is near ubiquitous for everyday items such as baskets, hats, fences, and decoration. Daum's creative studios explore this art form by adapting the basket weaving technique to sculpture. Natural fibers are braided and then reshaped into vases and bowls. Fronds of different plants and blend fresh, green, and slender forming vessels where one can showcase cut flowers or freshly-harvested fruits. For an added touch of lush, tropical flora native to the islands where basket-weaving is still common practice, yellow vanilla flowers adorn and perfect these beautiful pieces.

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.
