Expert Insights: Enamel Art by Camille Fauré

 

One of the most celebrated enamelers of the Art Deco era, the workshop of Camille Fauré shifted not only the popular style of enamels in the traditional city of Limoges, but also the methods of creating these pieces. After apprenticing for several years, Fauré established his own workshop in Limoges at the turn of the century, where he helped to usher in a new era of decorative enamels. He exhibited at the 1925 International Exhibition in Paris that famously gave name to the emerging Art Deco movement. Known for the elaborate Art Deco vases it produced, Fauré also produced a vast array of brilliant floral designs, upon which its success firmly rested. Fauré's works can be found in museum collections around the world, including The Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Corning Museum of Glass in New York.
