Join gallery owner Mike Goldmark in conversation with celebrated British potter Mike Dodd. Broadcasting live from his pottery in Somerset, Mike Dodd discusses his lifelong passion for protecting the environment, the epiphany that led to him becoming a potter rather than a doctor, his teaching and his travels to India and Africa.
Mike was born in Sutton, Surrey in 1943. He attended Bryanston School, Dorset, from the age of fourteen and 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. He has taught and travelled all over the world. 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.
