Laurence Dréano was born in 1971 in Neuilly and lived 25 years in Paris before choosing to settle in Touraine. After taking classical sculpture courses in Tours and Paris, Laurence Dréano flourished in a poetic, naive and idealistic universe where the game is at the center of a whole world, populated by characters who are only concerned with the pleasure of living. Love, seduction, lightness ... we find all the simplicity of universal values that do good. Sculptures and paintings that make you smile and want to sparkle!
Pâte de Verre is a rare and ancient glassmaking technique, which dates back to 5000 bc (pieces have been found in the tombs of pharaohs).in 1900 Daum rediscovered this technique that had been long forgotten, then further developed it in 1968.
The process of melting glass coupled with the lost wax technique that Daum has developed, ensures a perfect reproduction of the original piece just as the artist had imagined it. today, Daum is the only glass maker in the world able to produce this exceptional material so perfectly. Pâte de Verre is a mutable substance, which has translated every whim of the imagination of the master glassmakers for over a century, in this way, no two pieces are identical, because the fragments of groisil blend and merge at will as the glass melts.
This mastery and constant research have resulted in world renowned masterpieces.
