A studio based course for those who want to develop their individual practice in ceramics, supported by teaching in a wide range of specialist areas. Distance learning route available.
Ceramics aims to develop individual abilities within the subject, whether through practice or historical or theoretical study. Approaches range from sculpture and installation through to studio ceramics and design for products.
Admission is normally based on a good undergraduate degree in ceramics or equivalent experience. Successful applicants will have a BA (Hons) degree in Ceramics or equivalent experience. This could include a first degree in other disciplines together with subsequent studio practice. The key is the potential of the candidate, in the view of the interview panel, to successfully complete the programme.
Research Methodologies: Part One introduces generic research methodologies. Part two considers visual research methods appropriate to studio practice with approaches to recording and drawing plus initial explorations into relevant materials.
Initiating Creative Practice: A practice module, where students produce work based upon a programme negotiated and agreed with staff, designed to set an agenda and working plan.
Developing Creative Practice: A practice module, where students make work based on visual research on a programme negotiated and agreed with staff to develop studio work, awareness and understanding of relevant concepts.
Analysis of Contemporary Context: A module where the practitioner engages in a contextual consideration of their work by referring to cultural, critical, theoretical and historical perspectives employing advanced research methods alongside development of a proposed programme for the final MA module.
Advanced Studio Practice: You are expected to submit a comprehensive body of creative ceramic work which meets the agreed objectives, accompanied by documentation of visual and other research. It should include a written evaluation of the ‘journey’ and outcomes of your project, and aspirations for future developments.
Typical career destinations include exhibiting, ceramic design and museum work, arts administration, public art and research.
