Mike Dodd

Ceramicist, Maker

From the age of fourteen Mike Dodd studied pottery under Donald Potter, who in turn was a student of Eric Gill. He left Cambridge University in 1965 with an honours degree, and took a post-graduate course in Ceramics at Hammersmith College of Art in London.

Mike opened his first pottery at Edburton, Sussex in 1968. He built a double chamber wood-fired kiln from local Cornish materials and started producing his own glazes from local granites, clays, wood ashes, irons and ochres.

He had been a Senior Lecturer and then Department Head at Cumbria College of Art since 1981, and in 1986 moved his pottery to Boltongate in Cumbria.

Mike is currently resident in Butleigh, Somerset.
