Kate Malone is one of the UK’s leading ceramic artists with an illustrious career spanning over thirty years.
She has developed an unmistakable and highly regarded style, evidenced by her unique, hand-made pots and intricately ornamented sculptures. Observations of nature, particularly its fruits, nuts and berries are the overriding influence in Kate’s work.
In addition to her exploration of nature, Kate has spent her career pioneering glazing techniques via research and experimentation in the chemistry of glazing. The sophistication of her glazes has led to some interesting collaborations with prominent architects and designers, working on inspiring public art projects in hospitals, schools, parks and libraries. In 2019 Malone was awarded an MBE for her services to ceramic art.
Malone was a judge on seasons 1 & 2 of the popular BBC series The Great Pottery Throw Down; recently she’s become the ceramic ambassador for charity OnSide Youth zones as part of her mission to get clay into the hands of everyone, especially children.
