Well if it's unusual then he can just turn out another dozen similar. Up the price. Sorry, but I just don't get the Maltby thing. I'm sure many potters will be jealous, he seems to be able to sell his stuff as fast as he can make it. Only time will tell if he remains popular.

It's the galleries that are cashing in on the Maltby craze - often triple or quadruple the amount he gets per piece.

Surprised the boat family went for so much. I bought mine for a lot less, fresh from the gallery.

I often buy pieces direct from potters then watch in amazement and joy as ebayers pay double for them

He doesn't make stuff like that nowadays , I feel that is his best type of work and I think he will remain quite high profile for quite a while to come , maybe even increases , I am not keen on some aspects of his stuff , but other pieces are great .

Studio pottery slipware does seem to sell, although I have great difficulty with it.

........... except his age, his health problems and perhaps most importantly I don't believe for one minute that even if he was able, that he is the type of person to make anything just for money.

He's 80 this year. I think his days of whacking stuff out are long gone. He also doesn't do commissions; just makes what he fancies that day.

I've seen him a few times in recent years, the last time about 9 months ago, and you are correct, Naomi.

Maltby made the paper and wood collages when he was too poor to buy clay and fire a kiln. I don't know what he was selling them for but there's a guy on Facebook with a house full of them - literally hundreds - he's sitting on a small fortune now.

In the same sale of course,a James Tower went for 2800, and an Alan Caiger Smith and an Edmond De Waal went for over 1000.While others failed to sell at all.What it does prove,is that there is starting to be life in a Studio Pottery auction market that has been moribund for many years.
When you compare prices in the booming Art market-where they seem to have gone completely berserk- Studio Pottery is at chicken feed prices. Its probably only natural that the 'smart' money would be looking at opportunities in the Art Market,where prices are low,and there is money to be made in speculation. Such money usually goes for the stars and 'name' artists. Hence prices for that Magic Circle of Big Name Potters are starting to move upwards.
John Maltby has been fairly expensive at Auction for many years. He stopped making this sort of item about 1994 when he had a heart trouble,and turned to making the quirky sculptures. He has always been considered one of the most 'painterly' of studio potters,whose work is very accessible to people who collect pictures. If the Studio pottery market is starting to boom,then its just pure market forces that John Maltby will be one of those in the vanquard.
Not too sure if the vase here was actually that brilliant though!
