John Maltby was born in 1936. He first studied as a sculptor, after which he went as a trainee with David Leach. Maltby started his first pottery in 1964 making domestic and individual pots. These first pots were mainly saltglazed. Since the mid 70's he has made only individual pieces. His work has gone through several distinct stylistic periods; most recently the work has been mainly sculptural both single figure and groups more lately he has produced wall works. The subject matter of much of John's work is English with figures of Kings and Queens and Family groups featuring most often.
John Maltby is widely represented in public collections, including the V&A in London and others in Edinburgh, Aberystwyth, Belfast, Exeter, Leicester, and Faenza in Italy and Hamburg in Germany. He has exhibited widely in the UK, Europe and USA.
