The LALIQUE style was expressed mainly by the contrast between clear and frosted glass, sometimes with the addition of a patina, enamels, or colouring within the glass itself. He participated in large scale decorative and architectural projects for the Compagnie Internationale des Wagons-Lits, and others such as the ocean liner "Normandie " and St Matthew's church in St Helier, Jersey.
