Émile Decoeur, who began his ceramics career in 1890 as an apprentice to Edmond Lachenal, began to exhibit under his own name in 1902. While his early work was in the organic, richly-sculpted style of Lachenal, as time passed his use of sculptural elements gradually diminished and he became interested in simple, well-balanced forms with rich flambé glazes. During the years 1907 and '08, he moved to a rural area and set up kilns that he would use for the rest of his career. He continued to refine his forms and calm his glazes until his finished pieces became remarkably pure. A palette of muted colors and carefully executed geometric patterns enhanced many of these subtle designs. [Source: Jason Jacques]
