Masque de Verre is an evocative sculpture. the path is that of the undulating, moving form that goes from top to bottom and bottom to top, thus outlining a face and the line of a body. the movement, like a wave in volcanic rock or a stream frozen by a sudden frost, oscillates between immobility and imperceptible movement. The clever use of surfaces serves to convey the many facets of the female nature that can appear open and yet remain hidden in the recesses of the sculpture.

Jean Faucheur (French, Born 1956) is one of the pioneers of street art in France that launched many conceptual features that heavily influenced and shaped the way urban art looks today, as well as how its perceived. During the course of his long career, Faucheur worked in a variety of mediums including sculpture and photography that helped reinforce the creativity of his work. His most recognizable method is the cutting out, weaving and rearranging images that are assembled together to form a unique piece of art.
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.
