About the Gallery

Forge Gallery is a grade II listed building in a conservation area of West Sussex. The former village forge has been converted to provide an outlet for artists and makers, chiefly local. Mike's interest in ceramics (he has his own studio on site) has resulted in a good collection of potters' work  which is constantly being developed and renewed. The gallery has a close working relationship with the internationally famous Eric Mellon who lives nearby, and we are able at all times to show pieces from his latest firings and discuss his techniques.

Potters at this Gallery

Sue Broadhead, Nic Harrison, Rosemary James, Jessica Jordan, Alison Sandeman, Steve Tootell, Fran Tristram


The gallery also runs regular ceramics courses, ranging from slab pots, to creating pendants and brooches to slip decoration etc...  Contact the gallery for the latest updates, or have a look at our courses section for these and other courses.
