In 1880 (aged 25) he founded his own pottery at Chatillon-sous-Baigneux and in the 1890s held several exhibitions collaborating with Rodin.

Musee d’Orsay: Edmond Lachenal was a draughtsman, painter and sculptor but he was above all a remarkable ceramist. He worked for ten years for Theodore Deck and quickly rose to be head of his studio before striking out on his own in the Paris
suburbs in 1880. His first ceramics were in the Iznik style, but from 1890 he turned to stoneware then glazed stoneware with a pronounced taste for Japanese forms and decors. Shortly after 1900, Lachenal left ceramics and turned to the stage, leaving his workshop to his wife and his son Raoul in 1904. He acted with Sarah Bernhardt with whom he was rumoured to had a liaison. He remarried in 1913 and devoted his time to easel painting and pastels.
