Display artist/maker:

Georges Serré

Born: 1889, France   Died: 1956

Ceramicist. After an apprenticeship in the Sèvres factory he spent a number of years in Saigon, Vietnam, where he was influenced by Khmer pottery. On his return in 1922 he set up a studio in Sévres where he took in work for sculptors but at the same time produced his own ceramics in hand-thrown, wood-fired stoneware with thick glazes. In his later work he incorporated geometric and figurative incised decoration under the glaze
