Visitors to the special display at Waddesdon Manor this year of ceramics by Kate Malone will be left with no doubt why she is so highly regarded internationally. To many of you she will also be known as one of the judge’s in the BBC’s The Great Pottery Throw Down.

She certainly found inspiration at Waddesdon and has produced pieces that reflect the gardens especially those at Eythrope on the estate which was the home of Alice de Rothschild.  From Waddesdon her inspiration came from architectural details and the passementerie decorating the curtains and upholstery in the house itself. Her residency while preparing for this project has certainly paid off and she has even been inspired by the house’s renowned Sèvres collection.

Kate has described this project saying “I cover new ground in this exhibition by working with new clay-types and creative techniques. My hope was to create a visual feast, with bountiful ceramic sculptures that interpret many aspects of Waddesdon’s history. I’ve aimed 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.”

I hope you will agree with me that she certainly has more than achieved her aims.
