Dunand and Design

One of the most famous and fabulous of the French Art Deco Crafts masters was Jean Dunand whose workshop and designs fused Asian lacquer and enamel techniques to 20th abstract designs.

Anything by Dunand is highly collectible and beautiful such as this vase above ... but ... he and other European Master Crafters tended to design and create for an ELITE MARKET unlike American Art Deco Industrial Designers or Ceramics Designers.

With the advent of 3d printers perhaps very so we can copy objects like this for a wider market ... or ... even better ... figure out how to make such objects in cheaper materials without losing any of  the loveliness?
