Well-renowned on the international scene for her bird sculptures, Madeleine van der Knoop observes her subject closely—down to the most minute details— before beginning a sketch of her work, where movement occupies a primordial dimension.
From this collaboration between Daum and van der Knoop is born a sumptuous piece in crystal paste. A symbol of glory, power, and victory, the Royal Eagle is considered the bird of the gods in mythology, and thus has become an allegory for spiritual elevation.
"L'Aigle Prestige" in Daum's signature paste crystal exhibits an exceptional mastery of the lost wax technique. The crystal sculpts the light that bounces off of it and highlights all the force and beauty of this imposing raptor and its dominating presence.
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. We guarantee you the best price on your Daum Crystal purchase.
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.
