Came across his obituary recently. Died in 2018. He'd been potting since the 50s and had a pottery and shop at 49 Well Walk Street in Hampstead. The Marks book says he worked in slipware and Enamelling. His father was a Russian emigrant and worked for Penguin, which explains the unusual name.

His niece Emily Morris puts it well: “Christopher had special needs and also special gifts. Pottery was one of them. Another was to bring out the best in so many good people.”

I did walk by on many occasions over the years but never ventured in.
