French designer Emile Gallé is considered to be one of the driving forces behind the Art Nouveau movement. His naturalistic designs combined with innovative techniques made him one of the pioneering glass makers of the late 19th, early 20th century. Taking his inspiration from nature and plants along with a heavy Japanese design influence, it is no wonder the French have been known to describe his work as “poetry in glass.” He developed a technique for the production of cut and incised flashed glass and enameled designs, enhanced by bright colors and transparency of the material.
