Mike Dodd, Born 1943
Studied pottery under Donald Potter who was a student of Eric Gill. He left Cambridge University in 1965 with an honours degree in natural history, and took a post-graduate course in Ceramics at Hammersmith College of Art in London.
He taught at Cumbria College of Art, also part time at Farnham and the Royal College of Art, London.
From his artist's statement: "Throughout the process of making I try to keep clay's soft and plastic qualities alive, and in formulating glazes from naturally occuring local materials I try to do the same".
His work is in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, the British Craft Council, Bath Study Centre, the Clevedon Craft collection and Ulster Museum.
