Kate Malone, one of the UK’s leading ceramic artists, will exhibit new work inspired by the gardens, collections and archive at Waddesdon. She has drawn inspiration from many elements of the collections, including Sèvres porcelain, works on paper and passementerie (decorative tassles, braids and fringing). The exhibition will recreate in clay the theatre of gourds and squashes created every autumn at Eythrope, the nearby private garden created by Alice de Rothschild in the late 19th century.See more details >

While the bulk of this collection was bequeathed to the British Museum on his death in 1898, examples of these extraordinary objects are still to be found at Waddesdon, in collections inherited from other members of the Rothschild family, and in the fabric of the building itself.See more details >
