After leaving formal education prematurely in 1959, Peter Dick embarked on travelling around the world for a couple of years durig which time and after a chance meeting with Michael Cardew in Abuja, Nigeria, he became interested in pottery. He worked with Cardew there for about a year (c.1961) before going to Winchcombe for two and a half years, where he worked as an apprentice to Ray Finch. It was during his time at Winchcombe that he met his wife and together they moved to Coxwold in 1965 to start their own pottery. The Coxwold Pottery closed in 2012 upon Peter's death.
