We have been potting together for over fifty years.
After attending Portland House Technical School in Burslem, Dodie enrolled at Stoke on Trent College Art, and obtained her Diploma in textile surface pattern design. Thereafter she turned her hand to ceramics.

Jamie attended Carmarthen School of art after leaving Ystrad Tywi school in Carmarthen. After a two year pre-dip course of general art, Jamie went to Stoke on Trent College of Art to do a Dip A.D. in ceramics

We left Stoke on Trent College of art in 1970 and set up our first studio in Draycott in the Moor We built a wood fired kiln there and enjoyed many over night firings as we roasted potatoes in the embers falling into the ash pit.

We were the original ‘New Age Travellers’, before ‘New Age Travellers’ were invented, as after a couple of years we set off for Cornwall with all our worldly possessions in an old J4 Van, complete with a baby sleeping on the incredibly noisy engine cover. Having arrived in Cornwall and a couple of years working at Marazion Pottery we set up Prykernow Pottery in Hayle.

Eighteen years later we purchased Cripplesease Pottery close to St.Ives where we worked until 2003 before leaving to live in France for two years to paint and pot in the Languadoc. Here we set up Poterie de Sanfi which gave us the freedom to work as we pleased for two magical years.

In 2005 we returned to Wales. We built built a new house and workshop, Nantyfelin Pottery just outside Lampeter where we resumed our work.
