Daum Pate De Verre dish


Please contact us for details.

Pate de verre is another form of kiln casting and literally translated means glass paste. In this process, finely crushed sugar like glass is mixed with a binding material, such as a mixture of gum arabic and water, and often with colourants and enamels. The resultant paste is applied to the inner surface of a negative mould forming a coating. After the coated mould is fired at the appropriate temperature the glass is fused creating a hollow object that can have thick or thin walls depending on the thickness of the pate de verre layers.
