When Théodore Deck hired 15-year-old Edmond Lachenal as his studio assistant, he could hardly have predicted that the boy would become an internationally respected master, always willing to try something new. Lachenal's early work resembled Deck's but he gradually achieved artistic independence and personal fame. Working in stoneware, he used a hydrofluoric acid bath to cut away the glaze's outer layer revealing the velvety matte surface beneath. As tastes changed, he briefly abandoned applied decorations in favor of organic forms. [Source: Jason Jacques]
