Daum Glass from the Vault

March 18, 2019 – April 8, 2019

The 48th Annual Glass Arts Society (GAS) Conference is in St. Petersburg, FL, March 28-30, 2019. In honor of the GAS, whose mission it is to encourage excellence, to advance education, to promote the appreciation and development of the glass arts, and to support the worldwide community of artists who work with glass, The Dalí is pleased to offer on view for a limited time as part of our collection 6 works of Daum Glass designed by Salvador Dalí.

In 1968, Jacques Daum, whose family glassworks was founded in 1878, met with Salvador Dalí in Cadaqués, Spain, to suggest a collaboration in imagining sculptures in pate de verre (Daum’s unique proprietary technique.) Dalí declared,”Pate de verre is truly a Dalinian material. Hence I have used it to create masterpieces; I’m delighted by this new material, which has both the molecular elasticity of a snail and the consistency of the Perpignan train station.” Daum and Dali’s collaboration lasted over 20 years. These rarely displayed pieces are striking manifestations of Dali’s aesthetic, made real in three dimensions.

We welcome GAS members to The Dalí, and appreciate this opportunity to share some of Dali’s Daum Glass with visitors to the Museum.
