Ceramique 1900

Taxile DOAT (1851-1938) - England

Though of a British origin he was one of the major figures of French pottery and one of those who opened the Manufacture of Sevres to Art Nouveau. He worked there from 1877 to 1905, while having had his own oven in Paris since 1892. His "recipes" enabled him to adorn personally-shaped pieces with the most beautiful enamels. Outstanding gourd- or colocynth-shaped china, finely decorated, or stoneware with thick casting, his work was always diversified and of high quality. One can easily recognize his medallions, using the technique "pâte-sur-pâte". As a Ceramic teacher at Saint-Louis University (1909-1914) he took part in the development of artistic ceramics in USA, teaching among others the excellent ceramist Adelaïde ALSOP ROBINEAU.
