George Briard (born 1917, as Jascha Brojdo in the Ukraine - died July 30, 2005) was a noted,award winning designer in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. He is most well known for his signature dishwareand glassware - everything from cups and plates to gold plated serving dishes. Most famous fordishware and glassware, his signature collection was stocked at noted department stores, suchas Neiman Marcus and Bonwit Teller.
Born in Russia, he moved to Chicago from Poland in 1937. He studied at the Art Institute of Chicagowhere he earned his MFA, studying there while living in Oak Park with relatives. He served in theU.S. Army throughout World War II as a Russian interpreter. As an Army interpreter fluent in severallanguages, he served on Gen. George S. Patton's staff. In 1947, he was discharged from the Army andstarted working in New York with Max Wille, whom he had met in art school. Brojdo began painting metalserving trays for sale, and evidently Wille came up with the name Georges Briard to mark commercialpieces – Brodjo was also a painter and would use his real name on his art pieces, but Georges Briardbecame his signature as a designer of these commercial articles, which were wildly popular and numerous.His notable designs were produced first by M. Wille Company, and later in a partnership with Philip Stetson.In 2004, he was awarded the Frank S. Child Lifetime Achievement Award by The Society of Glass and CeramicDecorators, in honor of his extraordinary contributions to the glass and ceramic decorating industry.
