Maker Information

Ceramicist:Jim Malone - View biography for Jim Malone


Jim Malone's work draws on Korean, early Chinese and Mediaeval English ceramics, extending the British tradition established by Bernard Leach. Based in Cumbria, he produces high-fired wheel thrown stoneware. Malone uses unrefined local materials, a momentum wheel based on an eight hundred year old Korean design, and an Oriental type of wood firing kiln. This bottle shows his use of hakeme; a technique where white slip is applied to a darker body with a coarse bristled brush.

Presented by the Friends of Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery.
