Rooted in material investigation, this course allows exploration of ceramics through art, craft and design contexts. You’ll develop skills and knowledge through an exciting combination of material investigation and research. This will allow you to contextualise your practice in relation to current debates in the visual arts and to develop an individual production strategy.
You’ll receive specialised ceramics tuition from a dedicated team of academic and technical staff within the ceramics area, as well as from regular part-time lecturers and visiting practitioner/artists. You’ll be part of a lively ceramics community, based around comprehensive workshop provision and studio spaces. As postgraduate students, you’ll have the opportunity to extend and hone your making skills in conjunction with developing your understanding of how a ceramics specialisation might relate to production in art, craft or design contexts.
In the first trimester, you’ll establish the direction of your creative practice through studio and workshop-based making. Research Methods will introduce you to the tools of practice-based research, allowing you to bring theory and practice closer together, while developing creative and academic writing skills through and about your practice.
In the second trimester, you’ll negotiate a proposal for self-directed study. You’ll deepen your knowledge and understanding of debates in ceramics, situating the personal interests and concerns that inform your work within an appropriate contemporary context.
The final trimester comprises an individually negotiated and self-initiated body of work building on the knowledge and skills already acquired. You’ll be supervised by tutorial through to completion.
