Mike Dodd: His Final Firings

 

We're delighted to announce Mike Dodd's seventh major ceramics exhibition here at Goldmark, opening on Saturday 18th May 2024. While the forthcoming exhibition is an exciting event, it's also tinged with sadness as it marks Mike's transition into retirement. After over 60 years of making pots Mike has decided to hang up his apron and begin a new stage of his journey.

Mike Dodd Portrait 2024

Mike Dodd: His Final Firings will feature stand-out examples of the pots that he has made over the last 3 years, including waisted and faceted jars, handled bottles, jugs, his well-known 'expanded' vase forms, whose geological surfaces have become something of a Dodd signature (an example is now part of the permanent collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum) and his self-titled Dumpy, Tidy, Stanley and Vinny forms.

‘I can think of few potters as thoughtful, sensitive, and committed to their craft as Mike Dodd,’ Mike Goldmark.

Mike Dodd Dish

A philosophy of honesty, mindfulness and aesthetic integrity has informed Dodd’s career. He is perhaps best known among the ceramics community for his use of, and dedication to, local materials.

‘Clay is vulnerable and innocent,’ he says, ‘and will therefore show us the slightest mark when handled. The potter needs to stand back and respectively learn to allow plasticity to show itself, to be mindfully unfussy. With practice, feeling and respect, vitality can emerge.’

Pots are available online now.
