Ceramique 1900

Albert DAMMOUSE (1848-1926) - France

The combination of his talents as a technician and as a decorator made of him an exceptional and very successful artist. In 1871 he set up his china workshop in Sèvres, taking advantage of Marc-Louis SOLON's advice. In 1875 he worked with Félix BRACQUEMOND (1833-1914) and for several years pursued a creative work for varied manufacturers, from POUYAT and DEBREUIL in 1874 (porcelain manufacturers in Limoges) to Charles HAVILAND's workshop on Blomet street in Paris from 1882 to 1885, under the direction of Ernest CHAPLET. Already awarded a gold medal in 1874 at the Union Centrale des Arts Décoratifs, he had a great success at the Universal Exhibition of 1878 and won a gold medal at the 1898 exhibition. In 1892 he built his own kiln in Sèvres where he developed his many talents as a ceramist in a brilliant way. A constant seeker, Albert DAMMOUSE perfected the paste on paste process and achieved in 1898 precious little bowls in enamel-paste. His brother Edouard, who was already with him on Rue Blomet, remained in his shadow till his death in 1903.
