Vase (France), ca. 1905
During the 1880s and 1890s, Gallé developed original techniques for creating
and decorating glass vessels, including marqueterie-sur-verre, a technique
inspired by inlaid decoration, or marquetry, in wood. Gallé pressed shaped pieces
of hot glass into the pliable body of an object as it was being made; once the flat
surface had cooled, it could be engraved, carved, or embellished with additional
applications of glass. This range of techniques allowed Gallé to translate biological
life into design and show a variety of flora and fauna in detail as they transformed
throughout the seasons.
