Rod trained as a teacher at Trent Park and at Bournemouth and Poole College of Art with David Bllantyne. He taught Art throughout the 1960’s, then moved into other fields of education. He returned to pottery after retirement, setting up a studio in the New Forest to produce a wind range of earthenware using unusual glazes.
Now having moved to Devon, he concentrates on stoneware, often influenced by the colours and textures of sea and shore.
‘My work is firmly craft-based, and usually subjected to the discipline of the potter’s wheel – a limitation which I find liberating.
Most of my pots are functional though some tend towards the sculptural, often with organic references. In essence these forms are simply pots: hollow containers, which I hope will prove attractive to the eye and pleasing to handle.’
Rod Pike lives and has his studio in Holcombe, Dawlish.
