Design (Ceramics)

This course develops 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. The course is distinctive in offering the opportunity to specialise in ceramics as a medium allied to a breadth of possibilities, and establishing negotiated individual modes of practice.

Course modules

Modules include: research methodologies; initiating creative practice; developing creative practice; analysis of contemporary context; advanced studio practice.

Assessment methods

The 4 taught modules in trimesters 1 and 2 are assessed through studio exhibition of work with a supporting statement, or the presentation of a document, accompanied in both cases by evidence of appropriate research. The final module for the MA is assessed through exhibition or exposition, according to the nature of the work, of all work for the module or a record of it, addressing the issues agreed in the initial proposal. There are no written examinations.
