Nice. Unusual as well. Silly Ebay asking for John Maltby seem common lately. But actual selling prices have cooled for his work lately. But that has not much been reflected in the prices asked.

The label also said A/F, so damaged as well. Looks like a transition piece; prices for them have picked up but not as desirable as the later figural pieces

I think it's very ugly compared to his later figures to be honest Laughter

It is very unusual to have the Stoneshill Pottery mark on one of these early figurative pieces as well. I wonder if if it is one of the very early pieces from this era? I agree, that it does look a bit malformed and ugly. Perhaps it is because of the maybe early nature of the piece.
Mind you. Its very outre looks might make it appealing to the die hard Maltby fan. Although the damage of course, is a very serious drawback.

The early sculptures are a joy in my opinion and show a more rawness to his thoughts while working than the more refined items made later but that’s the beauty and the beast of collecting one persons treasure is another’s tat…..

I wonder how much it was? Suprisingly these type pieces do not make huge sums at auction. With that damage I doubt if it made much more than £30-£40 hammer price.

This vessel arrived today……not seen this specific shape before….It’s a lovely item to hold….angled from with that chunky pouring spout….does anyone know if this is one of his more early experimental pieces using form….

That is a nice piece! I do not know if experimental is the right word. Perhaps evolvement is a better word. Maltby always seems to have a very inquiring mind. Using techniques and making a much wider range of items than most potters even attempt. Let alone achieve as much as he did!

That’s a better word I agree…..in his evolving process of making such vessels ….sounds right….not to mention his use of other mediums far far beyond many i would say….what date would you think on this….or would you say it’s in a period of…..and it is nice it holds really well…I like it…

As I understand it, it was the period that came after his early standard ware when ill health forced him to give up throwing pots. It wasn’t as lucrative as churning out standard ware so eventually he couldn’t afford to buy the materials or to fire them so he turned to making collages and then to figurines

With reference to your piece. Potteryman. Mid to late 80's? The flower motif reminds me a bit of this earlier work in the 80's. His later work is often inspired by where he had visited. He took a lot of inspiration from the buildings and nature around him. It might help if you knew where it was actually bought. He had specific galleries which he sold at.
Look at the search in Maak. She has had a lot of Maltby there, and a number of them are actually dated.
