Mike Dodd “Essential to his philosophy is an oriental view that the role of the individual in the creation of true art is unobtrusive. Mike’s work has maintained this philosophy in the making of unshowy pots with simply applied surface textures and subtle glazes sourced from naturally occurring materials. It is a rare approach that has required during his career an intense personal application. As a result his work enjoys the support of many serious collectors of English pottery, as well as that of some respected critics whose judgement of Mike’s work is unusually and openly generous, simply that it has beauty.”
