Highly secretive and reserved about his creative world, speaking rarely and even then very reluctantly about his work and technique, we feel very proud to publish today some of his works. Daniel Clément was born in 1940 in Vibraye, to the south west of Paris, and lived in the French capital for more than 30 years. Fifteen years ago, he moved to a former fisherman’s cottage in Normandy. In 1978, the artist started to make glass furniture in a cellar in the rue Germain-Pilon in the 18th district of Paris. For a long time he used furniture, which he picked up in the flea market. Since 2005, Clément has been creating furniture from his own designs, under the brand name of “Les meubles précieux”. As the finished pieces are one-of-a-kind, they are numbered and signed (on a glass plate attached to the back of the furniture).It takes him about 700 hours to craft each new piece with which he has studded with images and decorative ornaments with a highly skilled technique known as “glass marquetry”, made up of painted and mirrored glass fragments. Each fragment is cut by hand from new sheets of white glass and then painstakingly painted one piece at a time after having scattered the whole surface with multi coloured glitter. Each piece incredibly unique giving these pieces of furniture a whole different aspect and make them a much sought after designer and collectors’ piece.
