In contact with his family, he learns the actions that will awaken his vocation and shape its future. It starts as a ceramist in Tarbes as a worker in a factory specialized in the utility, then go to Paris. Edouard Cazaux quickly finds a job as a turner at Riviere's, rue de la Roquette. Back in Mont-de-Marsan for his military service, he attends night school drawing courses and meet the sculptor Charles Despiau (1874-1946). In 1912, he wins a scholarship to study at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and the Se`vres school ; in the same time, he perfects his training by working in various workshops, especially at Edmond Lachenal's, known for its gilding earthenware. Under the influence of his friend Despiau, Cazaux participates in 1921, as a sculptor and ceramist, to several Salons (Salon des Tuileries, Salon des Artistes de´corateurs and Salon d'Automne. He regularly exhibits the results of his research at the Rouard Gallery and Le Grand Depot. From 1918, Edouard Cazaux moves with his wife, old student at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and valuable collaborator, to La Varenne-Saint-Hilaire, near Paris. He sets up a workshop in which he builts two circular kilns, like those of Se`vres for its stoneware and earthenware. He continues his sculptural work with the edification of monuments (Biarritz memorial in 1921). From 1928, he starts his collaboration with Degue glassworks. For them, he designs art glass pieces and lighting, the whole in a very thick glass with geometric, diamond and spiral patterns. Now, we know that the very best production by Degue was designed by Edouard Cazaux. During these fertile years, alongside his contemporaries Decoeur, Lenoble, Buthaud and Mayodon, Cazaux develops a ceramic that combines religious, antique and animal themes, painted, carved or modeled in relief. Bodies with stylized contours or geometric patterns (spirals, diamonds) are adorned with refined tones and gold highlights. E´douard Cazaux approaches the ceramic as a technician. He experiments the famous brass red, so difficult to obtain, that he fixes in the patterns, but he remains especially known for the use of the Norton stoneware Norton: The shortage of raw materials during the Occupation brings him to use the long ovens Norton's tunnels, manufacturer of grindstones for the industry, whose the temperature can rise until 1 800°C, to Cook its ceramic there; he develops then a dough resisting these high temperatures. This experiment gives birth to a series of vases covered with milky enamels getting loose on natural backs which will be presented at Rouard's in 1946. His searches drive him then to marry sculpture and pottery as shown by the ornamental anthropomorphe flowerpot kept in the collections of the Decorative arts Museum, realized in several copies by 1950. After the war, Cazaux withdraws in La Varenne, pursuing relentlessly its work of ceramist and sculptor. (source: Muse´e des Arts De´coratifs, Paris).
