Lalique was a french designer known for his creations of glass art, perfume bottles, vases, jewellery, chandeliers, clocks and automobile ornaments. In 1872, when he was twelve, he entered the College Turgot where he started drawing and sketching.
He attended evening classes at the Ecole des Arts Décoratifs. He worked there from 1874-1876 and subsequently spent two years at the Crystal Palace School of Art Sydenham, London. During that time, he also practiced as an apprentice goldsmith to leading Parisian Art Nouveau Jeweller and goldsmith Louis Aucoc. At the Sydenham Art College, his skills for graphic design were improved and his naturalistic approach to art was further developed.
