LALIQUE Iconic Bacchantes Vase Revisited

The truly legendary figures are those whose brilliance remains undimmed by the passage of time. In 1927, René Lalique, delving into mythological sources to decorate a vase with dancing bacchantes, depicted ten of them in glass.

‟ The unique pieces were created using the lost-wax technique, which René Lalique perfected in his day.”

Ninety years later, the American artist Terry Rodgers has breathed new life into LALIQUE’s legendary bacchantes, young priestesses of the cult of Bacchus, the god of wine and pleasure. In our glassworks at Wingen-sur-Moder, in the heart of the Vosges in Alsace, France, these figures have metamorphosed into Sirènes. Terry Rodgers – renowned as a painter of realistic scenes in very large formats, a true master of color and brushstrokes, a photographer for whom light is an irresistible attraction – could not resist the appeal of crystal. It took two years, with the help of LALIQUE’s know-how, to come up with the perfect mold and capture – using ‘lost wax’ – the nine languid female forms on Rodgers’ vase. www.lalique.com
