Kate Malone is considered one of the United Kingdom's leading ceramic artists. In a career spanning over 30 years, her work has developed an unmistakable and highly regarded style, through unique and intricately ornamented sculptures and pots.
As her inspiration Malone is drawn to the organic forms found in nature, particularly fruit. Her work is mostly hand built, varying in size from hand-held jugs and pots, to large-scale public work, including art projects in hospitals, schools, parks and libraries. Kate recently collaborated with EPR Architects on the façade of 24 Savile Row, London, which was affixed with 10,000 bespoke crystalline hand-glazed tiles. In 2016 Malone had a solo exhibition at Waddesdon Manor in Aylesbury England, Inspired by Waddesdon, where she created a body of work drawing on the rich archive material of the collection. Throughout her career Malone has researched and pioneered the chemistry of glazing. The sophistication of her glazes and bright vibrant palette gives her work a recognizably strong presence.
