Russell studied ceramics in Brighton and afterwards decided to head back to Devon. He now specialises in making Devonshire Slipware and his roots in North Devon are what drew him to it. Russell loves the humble origins of the everyday medieval pot to its vibrant place in today’s studio pottery. It’s undoubtedly made from clay and in this way, it’s very honest. Its liquid nature allows it to capture movements in ways that other forms of ceramics cannot, and its colours have richness and depth. His 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. Russell’s work has a real folky appeal and is now being collected by those who have discovered the joy of handmade wares with personality.
