The Art Nouveau period introduced simplicity to the designs and a break from tradition. A new and modern design concept, experimenting with clean lines, symmetry, and the use of modern materials, During this time, decorative arts also laid emphasis on uniqueness and craftsmanship. Japanese, Chinese and Asian stoneware also provided inspiration, a hard and dense pottery style, with new techniques and glazes. Even including Gothic design elements from the past, ceramic art was producing something modern and new. This broad and free concept of modern ceramic design has lead to the creation of some wonderful decorative antiques, often sitting in stark contrast to the traditional items of their era, yet equally well-placed on top of a traditional antique dresser or table.
