Pottery by Russell Kingston

Russell works from a studio in North Devon creating Devonshire slipware.  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 had grown there. Slip is dipped, poured, brushed, trailed and splashed with animated movements. Colour is using oxides and glazes. Pots are then once fired in an electric kiln from 1100cā€“1140c.
