Might be Russell Kingston. He's been listing some of his slipware mugs with dogs on eBay recently, with a similar mark

Mr. S-P bought a vase by this potter years ago from St. Ives Ceramics and got a sheet with information about the potter with it. The information is lost and the name forgotten but the surname Kingston doesn't seem to fit in my mind.

I have checked and John Bedding doesn't have this potter's work listed on the shop's website at the moment. He might be able to help, if you emailed.

Can't quite make out the mark. I thought I saw RK or SK but is it something else?

Unfortunately I can only see shapes in this mark. I agree it resembles a K. I have tried to contact St Ives Pottery but have been unable to connect. I will keep trying. Thanks for the information from all. kind regards

I did look for the piece of paper which Mrs. S-P got with the vase but no joy. My memory does think that his first name began with R and I know that Mike Dodd knew him because the potter came up in conversation years ago.

I bought this jug yesterday, its about 16 cm high and has a stamp that is hard to make out, but might be an R. Nothing on the bottom. It looks more yellow in reality. Any suggestions for the maker please?
