John Maltby

John Maltby is recognised as one of the country’s finest ceramic artists, his figures and creatures holding a wit and profundity that reflect the human condition and are inextricably linked to the English landscape and experience.

“My work continues to draw its inspiration from the ‘Englishness’ of my experience. Although many of the subjects re-appear, I aim to place them both in a traditional continuum (a continuous reference to my cultural heritage), yet relevant to my contemporary condition. This exploration, trying to find the relevant pitch and associations in the work means that these sculptures must evolve; the images which they contain within their forms, texture and colours are vital; they allude to a rich past and are firmly anchored in my present – but have to contain within themselves the excitement of a continual evolvement.”
