In 1909, he opened a glassworks in Combs-La-Ville, to the east of Paris. LALIQUE held his first exhibition in the Place Vendôme concentrating purely on glass. LALIQUE's glass was in such heavy demand that he opened in 1921 a second factory at Wingen-sur-Moder in Alsace, in the east of France.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.
