Charles Catteau attended the École Nationale de Céramique de Sèvres in Sèvres, trained at the Manufacture royale de porcelaine de Sèvres and in 1904 got a job at the Königliche Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg.
In 1906 he went to Boch Frères Keramis and from 1907 until the end of his career he was responsible for the decoration department and the workshop for imaginative design.
After initially traditional creations, he created new shapes, decorations and glazes after the First World War. His enamel work became more and more colorful over time. In 1920, in addition to plants and animals, there are also geometric shapes inspired by Japanese and African art and kept in the Art Deco style.
He is often considered one of the most versatile ceramic artists of his generation, who also influenced the aesthetics of the glass industry. He designed glass decorations for Val-Saint-Lambert.
In 1925, Catteau won the gold medal at the Paris Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes.
He was a member of the Société des Artistes Français and a frequent exhibitor at the salon of the Société du Salon d'Automne.
