Ceramics and Glass is aimed at the student who with a great deal of independence and creativity in an artistic crafts context wants to push boundaries within the area, and his/her own practical knowledge with a base in ceramics and glass, its theory and practice.
The unique position of crafts is characterised by its ability to move between different artistic fields and arenas. Crafts as a tradition is a position which makes questioning possible. Not only of one's own practical knowledge and experience, but also questions concerning material culture through its application in different areas of society.
Ceramics and Glass starts from the students' projects and activities and has its base in the production of crafts from a practical and professional stance. With a base in material tradition and our well-equipped workshops, we work across many different areas. We focus on developing knowledge and making it visible by connecting it to ceramics and glass and further, within the cultural field of crafts and production.
The education is built up of a few large blocks. Within these, you are responsible for the development of your individual Master's project. This you will do interactively with the education's objectives in mind, at the same time as you build a platform for your future professional activities.
The education aims to examine and question the role of crafts in society by applying design and the immaterial functions of crafts. We want to lead the development of knowledge in our sphere of competence and thereby create a vital interactivity with other fields and target groups.
