Daum Crystal Magnum Vase Tressage
H: 19.9” Ø: 16.9”
From the Caribbean to Madagascar to Indonesia, leaves from bamboo, banana, and coconut trees are braided in the art of basket weaving. This ancestral practice requires only fresh leaves and excellent dexterity; its use is near ubiquitous for everyday items such as baskets, hats, fences, and decoration.
Daum's creative studios explore this art form by adapting the basketweaving technique to sculpture. Natural fibers are braided and then reshaped into vases and bowls. Fronds of different plants criss-cross and blend—fresh, green, and slender—forming vessels where one can showcase cut flowers or freshly-harvested fruits. For an added touch of lush, tropical flora native to the islands where basket-weaving is still common practice, yellow vanilla flowers adorn and perfect these beautiful pieces.
Each Daum Crystal art work creation is signed with "Daum France". Every Daum piece we sell is brand new in the original box. Limited Editions come with all paperwork. Every single Daum crystal piece has it's own individuality as they are hand-made. Every piece is unique, no two Daum art pieces are exactly alike.

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.
