Pierre Lardin (1902-1982) was one of the foremost artist glass workers of the post war era.

He began his studies at the Ecole Boulle, and then moved to apprenticeships with Maurice Dufrene and Edgar Brandt. At this point he chose to focus on glass. Today his work can still be admired as he produced significant work for both room panelling and for incorporation in furniture, mirrors and tabletops. His style is recognisable for his liberal use of exotic and stylised images - unicorns, doves, stags, swans and attenuated figures. Glass for Lardin was a material he felt at liberty to play with; he would happily employ in the same piece - wheel engraving, acid etching, sand blasting and the full panoply of painting, enamelling

and gilding. Nonetheless his work usually has an austere and regular composition and there is a delicacy along with a playful use of differing levels of reflection and transparency.
