Scarva LogoThis autobiography by Mike Dodd is an exciting and interesting book, and is so very Mike Dodd. The front fly-cover has a wonderful statement under one of Mike's classic teabowls
"I love the process of discovery, of letting go, of allowing one's aliveness its own unique play - it's fascinating to watch and to be absorbed by this relationship between disciplined technique and the free play of the heart"
- How many of us today have lost this magic I wonder? Not Mike for sure!

Mike describes his book - as 'not quite an autobiography, more a fat cv with interstitial commentary! It has chapters on all the stages of Mike's life to date, starting with school at Bryanston the book is a mixture of Mike's own chapters and published articles on different periods of his life by himself and others.

There are excellent photographs, both of Mike's various potteries, a great picture of him on the Oxfam motorbike in Peru and some rare pictures of some of his early work. This is complemented with over 50 pages towards the end of the book of his recent work.
