Russell Kingston

Russell Kingston

Russell Kingston is a Devonshire based Slipware potter. Its humble origins of the everyday medieval pot to its vibrant place in today’s studio pottery. His pots are made for the kitchen and table, used and enjoyed in everyday life.

Russells work is wheel thrown and slab built. Pots are to be used, so forms are simple and Robust. Rims are rolled for strength and to mirror the chunky ring at the bottom; which is used for slipping and glazing. Handles are pulled from the pot as if they have grown there. Slip is dipped, poured, brushed, trailed and splashed with animated movements. Colour is achieved using oxides in slips. Pots are then fired in a large homemade gas kiln in oxidation to 1100c or so..

Although his work is deeply rooted in the North Devon Slipware traditions, it has a freshness that sits well in any modern gallery or home.
