After Emile Lenoble studied the techniques of faience, he worked from 1904 at Choisy-de-Roi with Ernest Chaplet, whose daughter he married. Lenoble made stoneware decorated with arabesques, flowers, or incised in body or slip, modeled in low relief or painted in enamel or underglaze colors, perfectly adapted to the form. From c1907 he came under the influence of Sung Chinese and Korean ceramics and eventually became especially known for geometric designs in relief, carved or modeled, and occasionally inlaid.
