my brother bought this for me a few years ago, because of the name, but i've never bothered to find out about the potter.  Anyone know about them?

I think it may be by Christopher Russell. Came across another slipware charger in similar colours, this time marked with Russell's R monogram.

Hi, thanks very much for that, that is a distinct possibility may be one before he founded purbeck maybe, similar size and almost identical construction medium and glazes.  E x

Thanks Naomi, Although it is in lower case, the distinctive "R" and the underline seem right,
as would the use of a local Carter blank.

22CS, the Carter mark is tiny, on the edge, I struggled to get all the tile cement off, so it is not clear.

Nice, but I think the phrase is ‘under appreciated’. No one really collects his work.

Potted bio from the V&A. Some of his tiles were collected by Chris Blanchett who donated part of his collection to the V&A

https://pin.it/2Jdpu6z

Christopher Russell (1931-2018) trained at the Poole College of Art, leaving age 20 to set up the Purbeck Pottery, Swanage. Here, Russell made a range of work from simple pots to more individual pieces, eventually selling to Liberty's and Heals in London, where this pot was purchased. Later, Russell travelled to Barbados and started the Christopher Russell Pottery with the backing of the Barbados Development Board, often incorporating sea-washed glass into glazed ceramic tiles.
