Pâte-De-Verre

An object made from a paste of ground or crushed glass which is caste into a mold and fired until solid. The advantage of pâte-de-verre is that it allows for precise placement of particular glass colors in the mold. The technique dates back to the ancient Egyptians, but it was revived in the late 19th century by French glassmakers, notably Argy-Rousseau and Almeric Walter, who gave the warm glass technique its current name. Many of the pieces that were made using this technique were relatively small, elaborately decorated, and required more than one firing before they were complete.
