Bottle-shaped ceramic table lamp by Georges Pelletier (circa 1970s). An earth tone base glaze forms the background for three bands of shiny gold craquelure. A very original piece, it has two bulbs: one on top and one which illuminates the interior which is inserted from the hollow in the base. The light which emanates is atmospheric and diffused via the beaded large and small holes. Quintessential Pelletier and a true collector's item for connoisseurs of this master. In very good vintage condition commensurate with age. Signed: 'Pelletier'. Currently wired for use in the UK. Lampshade for display only and not part of sale. Upon request a video clip of the piece may 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.
