Glad to see there are people out there willing to part with that sort of cash , bodes well for other potters , mind you I still think they are off their heads paying that .

I made a healthy profit on the sculptural piece Dan so no complaints from me , I made an even healthier profit selling 6 Sam Hall pots last week to an artist in Wales , I don't believe in hanging on to pots for ever , I enjoy them for as long as I feel then move on and buy others etc etc , TBH I think that Maltby sale was a flash in the pan ( hope i'm wrong though) Happy

Selling is a very important part of buying and selling and something that has to be done at whatever level you are dealing at. Over the years many things I've sold have gone up in price and a significant number bought back by me at a profit to the original buyer and re-sold. More than once becomes boring though.

Not sure that the auction prices are a flash in the pan, as I have noticed a keenness to buy over recent months. That's not only from collectors but also from other dealers, who have been contacting me significantly more than in the past.

This one was £1300.
Do not know if these prices apply to Studio pottery right across the board tho. Its seems the small cadre of potters that have achieved high prices over many years,are just getting higher prices.

Hefty prices indeed , but luckily they are not what I would wish to own anyway ,I don't see the attraction in the automaton things at all , I do think he has made some fabulous pieces at times ,but these auto things just look .....well silly imo.

He made them when he was hard up and couldn't afford to buy clay.

John Maltby, Stoneshill Pottery

Post by jonbearwood on July 8th 2016, 7:52 pm

Found this today in my local charity shop.  Looks like the signature/mark is SP.  Is this an early piece when he worked at stoneshill pottery?

I would have thought it was right too, but SP will likely know for sure.

John has always worked at Stoneshill Pottery since he left David Leach. It's his bungalow in the middle of nowhere i.e. Devon. It'll be from the late 1970s. I would imagine the lack of a personal seal would affect the value but he'll have made it.

A transitional Maltby candlestick. I think it was made after Stoneshill but before his current work; when he switched from making functional pottery to handbuilt figural pieces. The hanging fish are the same design that he still uses.

Nice!
We visited John Maltby in circa 1995, and bought a few of the more pottery pieces he had left. He had a heart attack late 1994 if I remember rightly, and he found the sheer physical work of making the formal pots just too much for him. Hence the transition to sculptural pieces.
            This one does look quite early. That glaze is somewhat reminiscent of the functional pieces.

I love to see pieces that show a potter's transition from one style to another, this one bridges the gap between Stonehill and his more recent and popular style Most Excellent
