Is a form of kiln casting and literally translated means glass paste. In this process, finely crushed glass is mixed with a binding material, such as a mixture of gum arabic and water. 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. Daum produces highly sculptural pieces in pate de verre.
