Throughout the Art Nouveau period, Daum excelled in complex glassmaking techniques. Etching was often combined with carving, enameling and engraving on a single piece. The most complicated creations, termed “artistic wares,” also feature applied glass elements, such as handles or ornamental motifs in naturalistic forms. Applied glass snails, slugs, and clusters of berries are characteristically Daum and are magnets that attract the collector.
