Pierre Marie Giraud specializes in unique pieces by international artists working in ceramics, glass and decorative arts. Founded in Brussels in 2005, the gallery represents an exceptional group of established artists from Europe, North America, Japan and Africa, and regularly showcases their work in both solo and thematic exhibitions. The minimalist and light-filled interiors of the gallery, which is housed in an elegant nineteenth-century townhouse, reflect Giraud’s considered approach towards the presentation and appreciation of contemporary applied art. At the same time, the spaces are domestic in scale, which reinforces the link between art and everyday life. The gallery is known for exhibiting only the very best and most original makers, and work that embodies conceptual, technical and aesthetic innovation. Pierre Marie Giraud is internationally recognized for his unparalleled expertise in ceramics. He regularly advises European and American museums on collection acquisitions and curatorial issues, and collaborates with a number of institutions on the promotion of contemporary ceramics. The gallery participates in fairs such as Design Basel and Design Miami, and is also noted for producing monographic publications on the artists featured in the exhibition programme.
