Keramik & Glas, 180 hp

The Bachelor's programme in Ceramics and Glass provides the basic knowledge and skills for a career in the fields of applied art in ceramics and glass.

This craftsmanship offers a unique platform from which one can pose questions about and demonstrate alternatives to the age in which we live, both through actions and results. Our workshops provide the platform for our teaching. How we then formulate and communicate our work becomes the major challenge.

The aim of the programme is to enable you to develop practical skills, critical and analytical capacity and artistic integrity. The three years of the Bachelor's programme involve a gradual progression from focusing on material and techniques towards more independent and complex work in this area. There is an increasingly international focus in this field and to prepare you for this we encourage you to seek international exchanges during your studies.

We provide well-equipped workshops for practical work with ceramics and glass. The ceramics workshop comprises a plaster and kiln room, a glaze laboratory, large open spaces for casting, modelling, turning and glazing as well as a clay-working room. The glass workshop offers a studio for blowing glass, plate glass, furnace casting, slumping and fusing techniques and there is also a cold glass workshop for grinding, blasting and engraving. You will also have access to the woodwork, metalwork and sculpture workshops.

Our teachers are highly qualified and during the programme they will act as supervisors in their own areas of expertise. You will also be studying art, design and the history and theory of applied art together with students on other programmes.

Theory and practice alternate during the programme, in which you will constantly be encouraged to think and create critically and independently. The programme is linked to the world around us through guest teachers, external lecturers and the professional activities of the teachers. We endeavour to adopt an active and aware approach to the development of individual practice through involvement in the current social and subject-specific discourse.
