Quick Reference

(b Langres, Haute-Marne, 16 March 1804; d Paris, 25 Dec 1856). French painter, ceramicist, writer and lithographer. Ziegler's interest in the decorative arts had begun when he was given a government grant to study the techniques of painting on glass and ceramics in Germany. In 1839 he established a factory at Voisinlieu, near Beauvais, for the production of relief-decorated salt-glazed stone wares and in 1850 made lithographs of some of the pieces for his publication Etudes céramiques: Recherche des principes du beau dans l’architecture, la céramique et la forme en général (1850).
