A little About us
We opened Fire and Flux Ceramics in 2016 with the intentions of developing a centre dedicated to the promotion and exhibition of Studio Ceramics.
In 2019 we moved to the larger more central premises at 21 Lower Goat Lane in the heart of Norwich Lanes.
We are proud to have such talented potters exhibiting in the gallery.

If you'd like to be kept up to date on new work and new artists, drop us an email and we'll keep you upto date,
We don't all have or want our own studios, they are expensive and can be a little daunting to set up, but we all need a place to work where we can gain inspiration and be creative; most of us find this easier when we are with like-minded people, and there are numerous advantages to working in a shared space such as: improved development of individual skills and the opportunities to meet like minded people and foster creative exchanges, and of course to take inspiration from the work in our gallery.
The main pottery studio has six work stations.
The Studio facilities:
* Personal work area:
* Personal shelf space:
* 3 wheels:
* Slab roller:
* Kiln facilities:
* Clay and Tool sales:
These spaces are available to hire from as little as a half day a week. Session times are 10am to 1pm and 1.30pm to 4.30pm on a rolling monthly basis and are available for potters able to work independently.
There are also two Artist Studios available to hire on a 6 monthly basis.
Contact the gallery for further details or to book your place.
