Herman Seger became affiliated with the KPM Manufacturing Co in 1878 as a serving director of the Chemical-Technical Research Institute which helped create new glazes an molds for KPM. Seger produced numerous innovations that substantially increased KPM’s proficiency in designing moulds and working with new colors and styles. Inspired by Chinese ceramics, Seger created a new type of running glaze and and under glaze colors, he has been credited with not only moving KPM into the Art Nouveau Era and opening the door for many peer companies to begin producing pieces in these new colors and glazes, but as a pioneer of the Art Nouveau Period itself.
