Michael Dillon, Wedgwood


Michael Dillon was one of the many studio potters employed by Wedgwood during the 1960s and 1970s. Trained as a potter in his native Australia, Dillon moved to England, joining Wedgwood in 1970. The company gave Dillon much freedom in the created of his Asian-inspired, abstract shapes and earthy glazes, and he was a prolific artist during his short time at Wedgwood. Dillon died unexpectedly in 1976 at age 32.
