Pāte de verre is a labor-intensive form of glass casting that dates to the second millennium B.C. The Mesopotamians were the first to leave records of the process which they used for inlays in jewelry and sculpture. The Egyptians improved on their techniques, using pāte de verre in intricate mosaics and vessels between 1500 and 1000 B.C. The Egyptian word for pāte de verre translates to "stone that flowers," no doubt because of the gem-like quality of its color and light reflection.

In the 4th and 5th centuries, Persians used pāte de verre to produce exquisite vessels. Glass studios prospered across the Middle East through the 1st century A.C. and the process became increasingly refined.

After the Romans invented glassblowing, glass became easier and less expensive to produce and pāte de verre all but vanished until its revival in Europe in the 19th century. Influenced by archeological discoveries, French artists like Gabriel Argy-Rousseau and the American Frederick Carder reinvented the process, helped by technology of the Industrial Revolution.
