Daum embraces an environmentally-friendly and equitable approach by using bio-ore in the production of this lea the rack turtle sculpture. To meet the major challenges of sustainable development, Daum is committed to an ethical approach to metal sourcing, which is necessary for the coloring of the crystal. with the motivation to combine technical mastery and sustainable development, Daum's Nancy atelier collaborates with local biotechnology startup Econick to obtain bio-sourced metals, produced from hand-grown plants, without deforestation, without the use of pesticides, equitable for local populations, wile enhancing the soil by increasing its fertility. Daum wishes to highlight our present ecological crisis by choosing the lea the rack turtle, an endangered species. One of the largest species of turtles and present in all the oceans of the planet, the survival of the lea the rack turtle is seriously threatened by pollution and urbanization.

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.
