Works mainly in stoneware, producing mostly functional pottery.


Here is a jar (believe it may be considered a "Caddy") from my collection:

Mike Dodd  111

Ash (I believe) glazed stoneware.

I can't show a picture of the mark as it is mostly obscured by the glaze.

Hope that you don't mind me removing "Somerset" from your title Potty but the lad has moved about during his career i.e. various places in Sussex, Cornwall, Peru (west of Cornwall), Cumbria and Dorset before finally settling in Somerset in 1999.

Another point to make is that it is not uncommon for Mike's impressed seal to be covered in glaze, as with the lidded jar above. Therefore if a pot looks like Mike's and the seal is obscured it is likely to be his work.

Mile Dodd wrote an autobiography in 2004.published in hardback form by Canterton Books. Entitled AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF SORTS.Excellent book,with many fine photographs.
The famed Goldmark gallery have also held several exhibitions of his work,with accompanying catalogues superbly illustrated.Well worth getting hold of. There are also several videos on their website,including several of him talking about his pots,and especially this 23 minute special film on Mike Dodd and his pots.
http://www.goldmarkart.com/scholarship/mike-dodd-potter-film/

Mike Dodd of course is always talked of in the same light as that trio of leading post-war Leach style potters.Phil Rogers,Jim Malone and Mike Dodd. It is an ever interesting on-going debate,as who is the best potter.

I must agree with Studio-Pots  about Mike Dodd's signature. Never had a potter with so many in-filled glaze signatures. I have several of his pots,and they nearly all have this fault. This is probably the best signature.but still not perfect.

Post by Davee Sat Aug 03, 2019 3:35 pm

Bowl with incised and painted decoration, has an impressed mark but I really can't make it out. Depending on which way you look at it gives different results!!!! 🙄hoping somey will recognise the style or he able to decipher the mark.

The quality of the throwing, form and decoration suggest a serious potter. I have emailed Mike to see if he can help. Thanks for the suggestion Naomi. Happy

Is there an MJD there tho? Mike Dodd of course does produce a lot of glaze included pottery. Is that obvious here?
A straight M is early Mary Rich? No., too sophisticated Leach style. Then there is Mickey Schloessingk. Wood fired, but not so much Leach style. Certainly a possibility.

I think there’s a J or Y in the middle, as a monogram rather than separate letters, which could rule out Mike Dodd

There is definitely a long tailed letter in the centre of the mark, hopefully I will get an answer to my email. Either way IMO it's a really good piece that's going to be a keeper.
