FOR JIM MALONE, clay is an infinitely varied and mysterious element in itself, and capable of infinite surprises,even to an old hand. It is a a matter of being open to the possibilities,and taking new risks in each cycle of making. As Jim's great teacher and friend Ewen Henderson stressed, what is the point of re-exploring the same territory? In Malone's case this questioning dialogue is manifested in a remarkably free three-dimensional eye and an expansive use of glazes and slips that become an extension of the clay, and not simply a covering. His enviably relaxed throwing is part of a particularly attentive alliance with the substances he uses, as is the remarkable spontaneity of his tides of colour and incised drawing.

Extract from an essay by David Whiting to accompany a solo exhibition by Jim Malone held at the Oakwood Gallery in 2000
