Cut-sided vase, thrown stoneware, layered glazes, Ht 30cm
Malone studied ceramics at Camberwell in 1972, worked at Winchcombe Pottery (Ray Finch) for a year and established his own studio in North Wales before moving to Cumbria. His stoneware pottery, with its brushed and incised decoration, reflects the influences of historic Chinese, Korean and South East Asian wares, and follows the tradition of British studio pottery stimulated by Bernard Leach and the Japanese makers such as Shoji Hamada. His work is well represented in public collections.
