About Marie-Paule Deville Chabrolle
French painter and sculptor Marie-Paul Deville-Chabrol was born in 1952 in Morocco. She studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Po and spent two years at the Phnom Penh Faculty of Fine Arts in Cambodia. She paints, sculpts, and then turns women into bronze, creating curved figures that radiate a sense of contemplation and inner strength.
Since 2005, Marie-Paul Deville-Chabrol has collaborated with Daum, creating magnificent crystal pieces. Divine, sensual and elegant, the new work of art “À Cœur Battant” celebrates femininity and is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for the artist and Maison Daum. Daum embodies the delicate and dynamic movements of the dancer, radiating grace and emotion. The sensibility of the work is enhanced by the transparency, delicate colors and silky texture of the Daum crystal paste. The work of Daum's craftsmen emphasizes the details of the sculpture, the movement of the dress and the body.
About the brand
Daum, the legendary glass maker master, has kept alive for more than a century a love relationship with the greatest artists of its time, giving their work of art a second life of crystal and colors. From the Ecole de Nancy, from Art Nouveau to Art Decoratif, from Majorelle to Dali, Arman and Hilton McConnico, Daum has not missed any of the magic rendez-vous of the artistic creation and modern savoir-faire, which has always renewed the alliance of art and art craft.
Few brands have worked with as many artists: for nearly 140 years, more than 350 exceptional signatures have constituted a heritage beyond compare, a unique collection.
How to convey those works into crystal sculptures? This is where Daum’s secret lies, shaper of the exception, highly knowledgeable workshop, laboratory of wonders, designer of incomparable objects.
