The wise Athena, here in her contemplatiive pose, is the product of a collaboration between Daum and French artist, Marie-Paule Deville Chabrolle. Chabrolle studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Pau and spent two years in the Phnom-Penh Fine Arts faculty in Cambodia. The artist’s approach is a highly personal adventure. Every encounter, every country. she has travelled through, every image glimpsed, and every emotion experienced, contribute to her creation. Her works are a passionate tribute to grace and femininity. She draws, sculpts and transforms women in bronze, producing curved figures of expressive gentleness that emanate a sense of contemplation and inner strength. Her works are exhibited in the Galeries Bartoux in Paris, Megève, Cannes, London, New York and Singapore.

When asked about her work and using crystal as medium, she is quoted to have said the following:
‘‘When Daum came into my life, I realized that the light and the elusive colours of the sky were made possible to carve. How could I have resisted? I confided my first sculptures impatiently to see how my earth, so heavy and full, could have color, transparency and light… It was so beautiful yet so different…so began our collaboration. I confided my earth to them, so that alchemy takes place, giving me light and dazzling colors that cross the sky. My wonder still lasts with each new sculpture.’’

Each Daum crystal piece is made using the rare and ancient "Pâte de Verre" glassmaking technique, which dates back to 5,000 BC and involves melting many fragments of colored crystal within a mold. This results in intense colors and subtle shading. Handmade in France. Limited edition of 125.

Measures 11½" x 12½" x 17" h.
