Ceramique 1900

Raoul LACHENAL (1885-1956) - France

He succeeded his father Edmond in 1904 and founded in 1911 a great fire chinaware factory in Boulogne-sur-Seine, to which he added a production of earthenware and stoneware. If he advocated the process of mould-casting, his research was nevertheless daring. After the flamed stoneware there appeared in 1914 superb stoneware decorated with scales and geometrical designs, in a typical and discreet polychromy, on oval or rectangular shapes, sometimes evocative of the Far East. Also noteworthy an Egyptian blue pottery production, commercialized in New-York by Carol STUPELL.
