Serge Mansau

Daum Crystal Artist Serge Mansau

Serge Mansau was born in 1930. He first enjoyed theatre and mime, and today his creations are still influenced by a sense of staging and quiet symbolism. Even his small-scale projects are marked by the gesture. He is internationally known as a designer in the perfume industry, where he designs bottles for famous couturiers since 1963. With his experience, Mansau is an expert with glass. He explores it with master glassmakers and is familiar with all its physical possibilities and limits. With it, he has freedom to reinvent sculpture. His works form part of the history of contemporary glass.
