About

Iconic Georges Pelletier TOTEM in enameled ceramic, floor lamp bringing to your space an amazing light experience when the night falls, and a stunning sculptural presence during the day. Approximate dimensions height 150 cm Georges Pelletier (1938) is a great contemporary artist exploring the fields of ceramics and lighting since the 1950s. Born in Brusels in 1938. At the tender age of 12 he enrolls in the École du Pioulier, founded by Célestin Freinet and located in Vence in the South of France. Here he learns free and modern art and discovers drawing and ceramics. During this period Pelletier starts showing solidarity and relief based on the principle of equality. This formation lends him a unique artistic identity. Georges Pelletier arrives to Paris in 1953 and continues with his drawing studies at l’Académie Charpentier meanwhile he still frequents Fernand Léger’s workshop. He enrolls the school of Métiers d’Art in 1955. Pelletier deepens into the world of ceramics during his time at Claude Pantzer’s workshop and the Potiers d’Accolay where he meets Raphael Giarusso with whom he will later share a work studio for over a year. “Drawing is the starting point of everything. I started design at the same time as ceramics at l’école Freinet. It’s an art that has allowed me to address my creations.” Pelletier opens his first studio in Paris in 1961. He is quickly signed up by Maison Bobois (now known as Roche Bobois), which spread and sold his light creations until 1973. Later on, Pelletier moves to Cannes where he continues his work on the conception of ceramic items, lamps, mirrors and other sculptures inspired in the 1960s. Besides, he also displays his work in the Consortium, Dijon Contemporary Art Centre in France. In the 1980s, he started to produce his famous Totems and Suns, these pieces has allowed the rediscovery of this bold artist whose creative genius brings light to the world’s most beautiful homes. The work of Georges Pelletier is presented by Galeria Tambien, a gallery that focuses on art, ceramics and design from the 1950s to present days, it is located in the town of Santa Gertrudis de Fruitera right in the middle of Ibiza island.
