French Decorative Vase by Georges Pelletier (circa 1970s)
French decorative vase by ceramicist Georges Pelletier (circa 1970s). Handmade, gleaming, enamelled ceramic with twilight blue and stunning gold trim including in the lip. The shape is classic with a bulbous body and narrower mouth. The piece is in good overall condition commensurate with age and usage. Please note there is a small production imperfection in the form of a small indentation just above the widest point of the structure. It does not affect the overall impression of the piece and perhaps, one might say, it adds interest. Please enjoy the accompanying photos to this listing. The piece is signed on the underside: 'Pelletier'. Upon request a video of the piece will be provided.
About the Artist: Georges Pelletier was born in Brussels, Belgium in 1938. He started his training at the Academy Charpentier in Paris (School of Arts and Crafts) in the building which is now the Picasso Museum. After that period, Pelletier worked at the Atelier Claude Pantzer, the renowned Accolay pottery. In 1961 the artist opened his own studio in Paris where he created his first unique pieces. His work was noted by the Bobois furniture house for his evident creativity and talent and was subsequently asked to supply Roche Bobois with their lighting collections between 1961 and 1973. In 1973 Pelletier followed the sun to the South of France in the city of Cannes where he set up a new workshop where he is still active today.
