Pauline Pelletier

Available at the Alberta Craft Gallery - Edmonton

Pauline Pelletier (Cap Rouge, QC) works out of her studio located in old Cap-Rouge, on the outskirts of Quebec City. She has been working in clay for twenty years with ardour, pleasure and constant concern with excellence. From the simplicity of forms to the generosity of colour, occasionally tinted with a touch of humour, her work has a discrete charm and solitary energy.

After having mastered the copper reds and celadons, she pursues her research on the processing of metallic lustre of bronze and copper in relation to gold and silver. The richness of these metals enhances not only the black enamelled porcelain pieces but also the smoke clay surfaces of certain fragments.

Pauline is an experienced ceramist and is actively involved in the arts community. She also participates in important international exhibitions and is a recipient of several merits of excellence. Many of her pieces can be found in private Canadian and foreign collections.
