Claudius Linossier was a highly important French Art Deco metal artist, who chose to work with the very old and very difficult technique of dinanderie, which involved decorating hand-raised copper vessels with specially made metal oxides that were hammered into the surface, and when heated, produced subtle and beautiful colors. His pieces can be found in many museums and private collections.
