Dale was born Staffordshire 1963, where he still lives. He is a master potter and has worked in the industry for over 20 years, firstly for Coalport China and then for Wedgwood in their Prestige Department where he created many one-off pieces for the collectors' market and commissions. He has also exhibited privately in New York, Washington and San Francisco.
Dale says, "Although working in the pottery industry for so long and being creative with clay, it was always the joy of painting which was my first love and keeps me returning to canvas. When painting I like to use a variety of mediums as I feel the need to experiment and master as many methods as possible. Creativety comes from a number of different sources, observation or even conversation, inspiration always surprises me in the ever unusual ways it catches me."
