Deiniol was born and raised in Mid-Wales. He studied 3D Design at Manchester Metropolitan University where he specialised in ceramics. After graduating in 2005 he moved back to Wales where he established a workshop on the family farm in Devil's Bridge, near Aberystwyth.

In 2009 he relocated to Glossop, a small town on the edge of the Peak District. After a period away from ceramics, he set up a new workshop in 2013 and started in a new direction making earthenware tiles.

As well making tiles, he takes a selection of pots down to Wales about once a year to fire in the wood-firing kiln.

He also speaks Welsh.
