This autumn, ceramicist Kate Malone returns with a beautiful new body of work. Featuring several unique, monumental sculptures amongst her signature collection of organic inspired pots, the exhibition will be a must-see event for anyone interested in contemporary ceramic art. The show will mark seven years since her last solo London show and ten years since her ‘Nuts and Berries’ exhibition at the Dover Street Gallery, and will feature work made in Barcelona and London this summer. Malone says: ‘I feel this group of works are my most confident yet, channelling the energy I have felt from living and working between London, Provence and Barcelona for the past 8 years’. This peripatetic existence, alternating between a new built studio at Balls Pond Road, a cave dug from calcare rock in a medieval village in Provence, and most recently a Gothic vaulted basement in Barcelona, have provided Malone with a vast ‘visual and spirited library from which I have drawn to make the work that will be on show at ROBILANT +VOENA this November in my first solo show for many years’.


Kate Malone is one of the UK’s foremost ceramic artists, with a career spanning over 30 years and with work in numerous public collections including the V&A London, The Ashmolean Museum Oxford, the LACMA Los Angeles, and the Musee des Arts Decoratifs Montreal. The Malone aesthetic is internationally recognisable. The coiled bodies of her pots are often clad in countless hand-crafted elements of varying size and form, before sumptuous, highly-coloured crystalline glazes are applied. The resulting ceramic sculptures exude an uncompromisingly abundant sense of ripeness that carries favour with a wide range of collectors.
