Kate Malone, one of the UK’s leading ceramic artists, will exhibit new work inspired by the gardens, collections and archive at Waddesdon.


Malone has drawn inspiration from many elements of the collections, including Sèvres porcelain, works on paper and passementerie (decorative tassles, braids and fringing). The exhibition will recreate in clay the theatre of gourds and squashes created every autumn at Eythrope, the nearby private garden created by Alice de Rothschild in the late 19th century.

"I will cover new ground in this exhibition by working with new clay-types and creative techniques. The show will be a visual feast, bountiful ceramic sculptures that interpret many aspects of Waddesdon’s history. I aim to capture the very essence of Waddesdon through displaying a host of artworks which represent the land, farmers, builders, gardeners, and people who have worked and lived there."Kate Malone

Malone’s work is inspired by close observation of nature, particularly its fruits, nuts and berries, and her fascination with the more abstract forces of life. Through research and experimentation, Malone has pioneered sophisticated new glazing techniques and has collaborated with architects and designers on innovative public art projects in hospitals, schools, parks and libraries. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, Manchester City Art Gallery and the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. Malone also appears as one of two expert judges on the new BBC series The Great Pottery Throw Down.
