Art Nouveau Pâte-de-Verre Mask by Henri Cros

A French Art Nouveau pâte de verre mask by Henri Cros. Fascinated by the idea of polychrome sculpture as practiced in ancient Greece and Egypt, Cros began experimenting with a wide variety of substances, including terracotta, alabaster, marble, and wax around 1865. In his various researches into ancient Greek and Egyptian colored sculptures, he realised that those various figures made of glass which were colored through in several shades could not have been made as normal glass, moulded to shape and color in the kiln, as the heat invariably caused the colors to run and mix. This marks the beginning of his experiments with glass and the birth of pate-de-verre. Through trials and error he realised his first glass paste medallion, a portrait of his niece, in the oven of his kitchen. Pleased with the results he built himself a kiln in his workshop. Cros produced a large number of plaques and medallions sculptured in low relief. Nearly all were of allegorical or mythical subjects which always attracted him. This mask is a testimony to this practice. Using soft pastel colors, he modeled this medallion on an archaic or classical figure, Greece and Rome were his models. The effect was made greater still by a blurring of the outlines of his composition. A similar mask is pictured in: Glass: Art Nouveau to Art Deco, by Victor Arwas, New York: Harry N. Abrams, Inc., 1987, p. 67.

Tiffany Studios "Cypriote" Miniature Vase

A Tiffany Studios New York glass "Cypriote" vase, featuring a mottled and multi-textured lava-like finish, with an uneven border. The vase has a dark background with iridescent green, blue, purple and metallic swirls. Cypriote is a textured glass achieved at Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company by rolling glass over a marble or iron surface covered with pulverized bits of the same glass. Its iridescence and bubbles resembled the decomposed surface of Roman glass discovered during archeological explorations on the island of Cyprus, hence its name. Lava glass evolved from Cypriote glass by using thicker, brighter glass and dripping golden glass irregularly over the surface. A similar vase is pictured in: "The Art of Glass: Art Nouveau to Art Deco" by Victor Arwas, London: Andreas Papadakis, 1996, p. 40, plate 50.
