Taxile Doat, Scarab

Marcia Selsor

Taxile Doat ( 1851-1939 ) was one of the major figures of French ceramics at the turn of the twentieth century.

Between 1877 and 1905, he worked at the Manufacture nationale de Sèvres in France and was among the artists who introduced the Art Nouveau style. He also opened his own workshop/studio and developed new techniques including the technique of grand feu enamel on sandstone . For some of his work away from Sevres he favored the Japanese aesthetic of organic shapes and running glazes. Then, in 1909, he taught at the Women's University, University of Saint Louis, Missouri and contributed to the expansion of artistic porcelain in the United States.
