MONTICELLO, Ark. — “New Work,” by Paul Maloney, can be viewed in the Glassblock Gallery in the Fred J. Taylor Library and Technology Center at the University of Arkansas at Monticello for the months of February and March 2023.
Maloney uses hand-made ceramic vessels as a structure or blank canvas to record daily experiences. Momentary reflections that are evident in his anthropomorphized pots show a snippet of his humanness, both told and inferred.
Paul Maloney is a ceramic artist born in Houston, Texas. He attended the University of Georgia, completing his bachelor’s degrees in both art history and ceramics, and later attained his MFA in ceramics from Indiana University Bloomington. Maloney has made work throughout the United States, having opportunities at Haystack Mountain School of Craft, the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass Studio, Penland School of Crafts, The Bascom: A Center for Visual Arts and the John Michael Kohler Arts Center.
