Artworks by Roberto Gagliano and friends to support the Pottery Gagliano as it continues to offer space to share, learn and create.

by Pottery Gagliano in Brighton, England, United Kingdom

The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for  millions of British small businesses, which is going to make it very challenging for businesses to survive. Together we can help them. 

Roberto Gagliano has a passion for ceramics and for teaching.

He has always been very grateful for the generosity of potters in his youth who freely shared their knowledge, enthusiasm and experience with him.

Through the lessons he teaches and the studio space he has created, Roberto is continuing in this tradition and openly and enthusiastically sharing his passion and knowledge with others.

Roberto was born in Italy on the beautiful island of Sicily where he learned his craft from the ceramic masters using the local clay freshly mined from the Sicilian mountains and valleys. After gaining a Diploma in Ceramics, Technology and Design, Roberto has been working as a potter for almost 25 years.

He came to England in 2001 and set up a studio in Kemptown. He quickly became involved with the vibrant arts scene in Brighton and has been working with fellow artists and many students ever since.

In 2011 the studio moved to it's present location in Rodhus Creative Studios on Hollingdean Road and last year moved within the building to a bigger, brighter space upstairs.


For the last 10 years Roberto has developed his teaching style and increased the number of classes he teaches to six a week. His classes sell out year after year so he is obviously doing something right!

For the last few years the studio has also been running Open studio sessions for potters who wish to use the facilities without receiving tuition.

When Roberto finds time he squeezes in a little of his own personal work and has collaborated with other artists over the years. Most notably creating the beautiful hand-thrown earthenware pots and press mouldings for some of Dan Baldwin's collections. He is always happy to discuss commissions and collaborations.

Here are the pieces available on our crowdfunder campaign:
