Over the following years, electricity came to the town, along with telegraph communications… Saint-Uze was entering the modern age! At the factory, times were changing too, ushering in a new manufacturing method: slip-casting. Invented in France at the turn of the 18th century, and later perfected at the Sévres factory, this method allows delicate pieces to be manufactured in bulk. Hector’s son, Louis-Gustave Revol, invests in this new technology. Dyes and moulds have been stored in the cellars of the factory since 1903, constituting a veritable treasure-trove of creativity.
