Amalric Walter, Daum Nancy Pâte de Verre Glass Figure of a Woman in Blue

$5,500

Timeless in its beauty, this arresting composition by Daum Nancy and Amalric Walter in glass was fittingly created using ancient technology resurrected by the glass masters at the turn of the 20th century. The strikingly vertical piece captures the form of a woman swimming in a diaphanous mess of gauzy robes. Engulfed but unbothered by the garments that dance around her steadfast figure, the female form is frozen in an elegant contrapposto and cast in graduating hues of bright, crystal blue.
