Joseph Gabriel Rousseau said Gabriel Argy-Rousseau, born in Meslay-le-Vidame in 1885 and died in 1953, is a sculptor, ceramist and glass Master who contributed to the rediscovery of the molten glass as a major glass art from the early 20th century. If the technique of glass paste dates back to antiquity, it falls very long into oblivion. In the last quarter of the 19th century, Henri Cros and a handful of artists, often potters of the movement Art Nouveau as François Décorchemont or Georges Despret, the call to honor. The last of these precursors is Gabriel Argy-Rousseau. He is considered the only glassmaker to have developed and used the complex process of glass paste, the other master glassmakers working the crystal paste.
At the School of Ceramics of Sevres, he discovered the glass paste in the workshop of Henri Cros. Gabriel Argy-Rousseau began producing between 1910 and 1920. His early works were influenced by the motifs with floral and animal themes of Art Nouveau.
Between 1921 and 1931, established at 9 rue Simplon in Paris, he is a shareholder of the Argy Rousseau Glass Pulp Company. With numerous collaborators, he produced small, very colorful subjects in Art Nouveau style, then Art Deco. Unlike his fellow potters, it remains faithful to late effects and polychrome floral Art Nouveau, he developed shimmering colors ruby red, amethyst, gray, deep blue...And textures with marbled effects and invented new surface staining methods by brushing oxide powder before second firing at low temperature. His glass creations remain among the most typical and representative examples of Art Deco production. Please view my other item's as i will be adding more stuff each day many regard's.
