The introduction of new glazing techniques added luscious bright contrasting colors, which also appealed to Art Nouveau sensibilities. Like the Arts and Crafts movement which developed in England, Art Nouveau was borne out of a rejection of mass-produced objects in stuffy Victorian styles. While Arts and Crafts embraced handmade simplicity, Art Nouveau was more about discarding rigid design rules and creating beautiful, asymmetrical, and sensual objects, so that utilitarian craft pieces were as gorgeous as works of fine art. These new movements inspired major china and dinnerware manufacturers around Europe and the United States to open boutique art pottery studios, where gifted artists and chemists were often given free range to experiment, throw pots by hand, and test glazing techniques. For this reason, Art Nouveau is responsible for myriad innovations in the pottery craft, and Art Nouveau ceramics can be identified and classified by which new techniques were used. For example, some studios focused on their glazes and firing techniques, striving to achieve the perfect color, opacity, and texture. In particular, the firing process often led to unpredictable outcomes, such as uneven color, veins, or blisters��such "imperfections" gave each piece a unique character. Often the pots were plain in shape, blank canvases to adorn with beautiful colors, textures, and painted imagery. French Art Nouveau craftsmen developed two-tone marbelized and crystalline effects, as well as the deep flamb�� red known as sang-de-boeuf and metallic glazes in rich colors like blue, yellow, orange, and purple. Other ceramists put their energy into creating unique shapes for their pots, making fluid-looking vases inspired by Japanese ceramics, some even shaped like flowers or foliage. Three-dimensional relief effects were achieved by sculpting damp clay into flower blooms, plant stalks, animals, or maidens.
