Georges PELLETIER

Georges Pelletier, a ceramic artist born in 1938 in Brussels, studied at the National Graduate School of Crafts in 1955. He worked at Claude Pantzer for 3 years where he was introduced to many techniques that the artist always wanted to improve and perfect.

He collaborated from 1956 to 1962 with Raphael Giarousso, creating together new models for the pottery of Accolay in Burgundy, a type of pottery extremely popular, and always made of unique pieces combining aesthetics with humor. In the golden age of the RN6 that runs through the village, many craftsmen sold their productions along the road. Georges Pelletier gave pottery a new lease of life by using chrome nickel yarn for its lamps and articulated characters.

It was in 1961 that Georges Pelletier moved to Paris where he exhibited at the flea market in Saint-Ouen. He was then noticed by a decorator at Bobois, a store for which he produced many light fixtures until 1971. Since 1973, the artist has been working in Cannes and collaborating with various galleries. Almost all of the lamps and mirrors on display have been specially designed for the exhibition at the Consortium Museum.
