Edmond Lachenal

French, (1855–1948)
Edmond Lachenal was a key figure in the French art pottery movement and was one of the pivotal figures in the development and creation of Art Nouveau in ceramics. By the 1890s, Lachenal's work showed the influences of the trends and fashions of the late nineteenth century: Japanese prints, the shift from faience pottery to grès, and the emergence of Art Nouveau. Unlike his peers, Lachenal did not produce matte glazed works, instead creating his matte effects with hydrofluoric acid, eating away the glossy surface to create a matte effect. This procedure allowed him to produce brightly colored work.
