Kate Malone at Waddesdon Manor: 8 June – 16 October 2016

Kate Malone, one of the UK’s leading ceramic artists, has created a collection of new work inspired by

the gardens and collections at Waddesdon, the Rothschild property in Buckinghamshire.

Highly respected ceramic artist Kate Malone has created a collection of exciting and inspiring new work for an exhibition at Waddesdon until to 16 October 2016.

The exhibition features artwork inspired by the landscape, gardens, architecture and the people that have been a part of Waddesdon over the years. Particular reference will be made to the wonderful decorative details in the collections, including Waddesdon’s important collection of French eighteenth century Sèvres porcelain and intricate passementerie: elaborate tassels, braids and fringing.

The exhibition forms part of the Contemporary at Waddesdon initiative, commissioning artists to respond to the place and its collections whilst encouraging them to experiment and push the limits within their practice. Kate’s residency and preparation has included research in the collection, the gardens and in the Waddesdon archive. The colourful pieces inspired by nature and life at Waddesdon will have a wide appeal. In addition to those interested in contemporary ceramics, the show is likely to receive an increased audience due to Kate’s appearance as one of two expert judges on the BBC series The Great Pottery Throw Down, from the makers of the Great British Bake-Off.

Kate Malone said:  “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.”

Adrian Sassoon: “Kate has been exceptionally busy creating her new collection of ceramic artwork for this landmark show.  She has taken a broad view of Waddesdon through time, reacting to the place and people who have inspired her. The range of work is astounding, from simple terracotta jugs embossed with agricultural symbolism to elaborate, heavily detailed porcelain sculptures referencing the grand architecture of Waddesdon, to magnificent pumpkins, glazed in wonderful autumnal tones – the show promises to impress and delight.”

Pippa Shirley Head of Collections at Waddesdon: “This is a really exciting collaboration for us, working with a major ceramic artist in a material for which the collections at the Manor are famous. Waddesdon is all about depth and detail, and in approaching this project, Kate has explored our collections and history from both perspectives to create something both new and rooted in the place. It also builds on a programme of creative responses to Waddesdon from contemporary artists in an innovative and rigorous way.”
