About Taxile Doat
Taxile Doat began working at the Sèvres National Manufactory in 1877. Throughout his tenure there, he maintained a private atelier, at first in Paris and later both in Paris and in the city of Sèvres. Doat's studio ceramics nearly rejected the classical vocabulary that dominated the remarkable pâte-sur-pâte work he created at Sèvres. Instead he favored the Japanese aesthetic of organic shapes and running glazes. His macro crystalline glazes were especially well received. [Source: Jason Jacques]
