Joe Descomps studied under Louis-Auguste Hiolin. A multi-faceted sculptor and goldsmith, he lived in La Charité, Nièvre. He exhibited regularly at the Salon of the Societe des Artistes Français, and designed and executed a wide range of objects in the Art Nouveau style, including jewellery, sculptures in bronze, stone, and ceramics. In the 1920s he concentrated more on small-scale sculptures, mostly in bronze and ivory in the Art Deco style. After World War I he worked under the name Descomps-Cormier or Cormier.
