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
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.
