Louis octave maxime the glassmaker was born in neuilly on seine, January 29, 1891.Art deco takes its name from the first international exhibition of modern decorative and industrial arts held in the heart of betting in 1925 and brought together 21 countries. It has welcomed more than fifty million visitors. During this exhibition, max the glassmaker received a gold medal. This style was widely regarded as an eclectic mixture of elegance and modernism, imbued with various influences (from ancient Egypt, ancient grace or tribal art). At that time, women were being liberalized. Short hair and gowns on the knees (which allow for the dancing of angry charlestons) characterize the emblematic figure of the "boy". The most beautiful performances are suzanne lenglen (tennis champion, symbol of moving graphics), tamara de lempicka (painting) or josephine baker (black dancer with very popular success).
The famous clart of max the glassmaker, which he created in 1928, is also a perfect illustration of the "boy". This new feminine silhouette, thin and slender, dressed slightly, often in motion, was an important source of inspiration for max the glassmaker when he made his series of small dancers, gymnasts and art deco lamps.He will address this theme and that of animals with a great fluidity of lines and a sobriety of forms. The captivating beauty of his creations lies not only in the extreme delicacy of the hands and sculpted faces, but also in the elegance and charm of their poses.
Max the glassmaker returned to bets after the armistice of November 11, 1918, equipped with few resources, but endowed with a great spirit of independence. From this date he will devote his entire life to sculpture.
He rents a theatre-street artist's workshop, where he works 12 hours a day. He edited some terracotta works, then made his first sculpture, his famous pelican in the 1925 style (ax sculpture).

In the company of famous animal breeders including pompon (triomphe in 1922 with the polar bear exposed at the autumn salon), hernandez, delhommeau. At the same time, it will create many stoppers of car radiators, very popular at that time, notably the model "eola" replica of the famous stopper of the roll. The profits made on the first creations allowed him to hire workers whom he himself formed and to hire a representative.He founded his own company in 1926. Its collection is already very extensive, it is the American period, the golden age until 1929. Max the glassmaker sculpts many statuettes, men, dancers. In 1928 he made his famous clarte, a woman with a ball of light, a bronze master's play, after. In reality, there were three different models: one for the head, one for the torso, and one for the legs: an American black ballet of josephine baker. This torch of the 1930s echoes the idea of the ancient goddess of light, and at the same time symbolizes the era by his boy hairstyle and the sobriety of his line.
