DESIGNER: GABRIEL ARGY-ROUSSEAU (1885 - 1953 Paris)
Joseph Gabriel Rousseau (called Gabriel Argy-Rousseau) - born in Meslay-le-Vidame in the year 1885 and died in year 1953 in Paris - was a sculptor, ceramics artist as well as glass specialist who entered into the equation when the so-said pâte de verre technique had been rediscovered as an important branch of Glass Art around Turn of Century.

TECHNIQUE OF MANUFACTURE:   Pâte de Verre
( Glass casting is the process in which glass objects are cast by directing molten glass into a mould where it solidifies. - The technique has been used since the Egyptian period. Modern cast glass is formed by a variety of processes such as kiln casting, or casting into sand, graphite or metal moulds. - Pâte de verre is another 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, 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. [WIKIPEDIA] )
