John Maltby, one of Britain's most respected and versatile artists, has been working in clay for over 50 years. Born in 1936 in Lincolnshire, UK, he studied sculpture at the Leicester College of Art and at Goldsmith’s College in London. For two years afterward, he taught painting at a small private boys school where he met his future wife, Heather.
