Pate de Verre, is a 24-percent lead crystal paste made from specially produced batches of granular crystal. The creation of items in pate de verre through the "lost-wax" technique is a very complex and time-consuming process requiring abundant skills. The result after the successful application of these skills are true works of art, possessing an unique translucency, texture and substance, which can not be achieved with blown glass or molded glass.
A contemporary revival of this ancient technique is used to emphasize in bas-relief and incredible detail; that is combined with pure geometric Optic Crystal for an unique collection of thematic pieces.
