Cup with vines by Georges Despret (1862-1952)

Cup with vines by Georges Despret (1862-1952).

Destined from an early age to become a glassmaker by his family environment, Despret combined a scientific approach and a creative sensitivity to his art. Trained as an engineer, renowned industrialist, his art was the quest for the secret of the glass paste of Ancient Rome (the murrhins).
The consecration was reached in 1900, during the Universal Exhibition of Paris, where his works received the praise of the critics.

Firing cracks and small firing bubble. These defects are common in Despret's glassware and are part of the process of experimenting with the glass paste.
