Ceramics & Glass – cross-border work in a broad cultural field

8 May 2020

With a foundation in craft production, the students at Ceramics & Glass base their cross-border work on different material traditions. The focus of the education lies in developing and making visible the knowledge connected to both the material and the broader cultural field.

The role of craft is also examined in society through both design and intangible functions. Examples of this are revealed in the students' works, which this year are about visualized processes, the meaning of places, post-apocalyptic scenes and much, much more.

Wictor Öberg

"STACKS" is make-believe. An illusion of value and a metaphor for the craving affecting our time. Tarpaulins, acrylic plastic, flat and bullseye glasses, beer bottles, veneers, MDF, plywood, plaster, carpet samples, plastic pockets, paper, fabrics, cable ties, fake grass and ceramics on a pallet of plaster. The moment when the existing and the non-existing are mixed together.
