It is a colored crystal, previously reduced to powder and mixed with water, added to a binder to form a paste; this one after cooking becomes hard and translucent to be then modeled like a sculpture and colored. The real glass paste was obtained by cold amalgamation of glasses and crushed enamels. The paste is then molded and baked in a lost wax mold; under the effect of heat the constituent elements agglomerate. (Larousse dictionary of antiquities and flea market). * Emile Gallé (1846-1904) is an industrialist, master glassmaker, cabinetmaker and ceramist French. He is founder and first president of the School of Nancy in 1901. Child of the Art and the trade, he is one of the most outstanding figures of the applied arts at his time and one of the pioneers of the Art new.
