Ceramics and Glass Design
The Department of Ceramics and Glass Design offers a specialist programme that combines traditional production techniques and contemporary art. The four-year BA (Hons) degree programme in the ﬁeld of ceramics and glass art has the vision of providing students with practical skills in creating and presenting their own original works through workshops, as well as learning material chemistry and traditional techniques.
The programme is based on a triadic bond between technical education, critical thinking and historical perspective that encourages students to demonstrate their artistic practice with ceramic and/or glass material as part of their intellectual and critical inquiry. A wide range of practice-led studios and workshops offer common strategies for creative thinking, complemented by lectures and seminars where visual arts and history meet in the ﬁelds of philosophy, psychology, architecture, design, technology and natural sciences.
