In 1893, the sculptor-modeler Jean-Baptiste Sloodts was a second category worker at the Cie des Bronzes in Brussels. In 1896, he obtained a worker’s award and in 1907, he was promoted to a first class  category worker.

A few years later Sloodts‘ work evolved with his adoption of the modern style or new aesthetics (the term Art Nouveau was not yet in use), producing vessels decorated with flowers, female figures, animals.

At the turn of the century, he made copper and silver mounts for Daum and Gallé vases.

His work is extremely meticulous and refined, generally cast using the high quality lost wax technique.
