Maker Information

Ceramicist:Jim Malone - View biography for Jim Malone


Jim Malone's work draws on Korean, early Chinese and Mediaeval English ceramics, extending the British tradition established by Bernard Leach. Based in Cumbria, he produces high-fired wheel thrown stoneware. Malone uses unrefined local materials, a momentum wheel based on an eight hundred year old Korean design, and an Oriental type of wood firing kiln.'Making sessions are usually quite long and can go on for anything up to three months, this is done deliberately so that considerations of technique can be forgotten and I can concentrate all of my energies creatively. The best pots tend to make themselves'.

Presented in memory of Frank Brinkworth Esq, 1998.
