Daum Crystal Debris Automobile by Salvadore Dali
Limited edition of 850
H: 15.35" L: 17.7" W: 5.5"
The collaboration between Daum and celebrated Surrealist artist Salvador Dali began in 1968 with "La Fleur du Mal," his first piece in a long series with the atelier. The translucency of Daum's crystal paste offered Dali the appropriate medium through which to express the metamorphoses suggested to him by his "paranoid and critical" perception of reality.
In "Débris Automobile Horse," the fragments of a car are pieced together to form a blind horse with a telephone in its mouth. This piece, inspired by one of Dali's paintings, denounces the era of mechanization.

Pâte de cristal is a Daum speciality, sometimes copied but never equalled ; a precious material that gives pieces a sculptural dimension and which has been refined unceasingly. Pâte de cristal has the quality of giving translucency to the forms it reproduces. The brilliance of this material, the intensity of coulours and the myriad subtile shades all contribute to its singularity.
