Sold Sold
  • Description
    Wall sconce made of white and gold glazed ceramic by Georges Pelletier shaped like a bird on its side.

    Born in 1938 in Brussels, Belgium, Georges Pelletier is a ceramist who lives and works in Cannes, France. His ceramics are highly sought by art collectors and each of his pieces are unique.

    Georges Pelletier’s initial approach to the arts of ceramics began at the Pioulier school of Vence in the south of France, where he was a student in 1953. The following year, he moved to Paris where he attended the Académie Charpentier, then in 1955, he then entered the école des Arts et Métiers and also practiced and perfected his ceramic techniques at the Poteries d’Accolay.

    Paris offered him a vast cultural environment, where he often visited the studio of Fernand Léger and other artists.

    At the beginning of the 1960’s, he opened in Paris his first ceramic studio, where he started to create unique pieces that attracted the attention of Maison Bobois, which sold from 1961 to 1973 his creative lamps and sculptures with lampshades made by Pierre Ménard from fabrics by Roche Bobois.

    In 1973, he moved to Cannes, where he installed a new atelier where he works up to this day alongside his son.

    He’s style is recognizable by the solar motif’s that he integrates to his ceramics, by the use of small golden beads that hung on chrome nickel rods.
