Jim Malone, who was born 1946, has been making high fired stoneware and porcelain pottery since the early seventies.
He works alone producing a wide range of individual pottery forms.
“I left the hot house of London, where I had been a student in the late nineteen seventies, and set up a workshop. It was initially in North Wales and later in Cumbria. I work within sight of the Cumbrian Fells. This involves a necessary slower pace of life, in touch with essential values, from which pots can grow, naturally and unenforced. They are free from the superficiality of urban demands. My work is a reflection of my life and my concerns to understand and communicate beauty, as I see it, through pottery form.“
Jim Malone is one of Britain’s foremost potters. He has exhibited widely in this country as well as in America, Germany and Hong Kong. He is included on the British Crafts Council index of selected craftsmen. He is also is a Fellow of the Craftsman Potters Association of Great Britain.
